Microneedling Tools FAQ
Microneedling is the process of using needles to create imperceptible micro-channels in the epidermis. This process vertically exfoliates the skin for a firmer, smoother appearance.
The most popular target areas are on the face (forehead, cheeks, chin), neck and décolleté, and body (buttocks, thighs, abdomen and arms). The only place we don’t microneedle is on sensitive, compromised skin, which includes eyelids, open wounds, active acne (anything that’s causing broken skin) and raised surfaces like moles.
We recommend microneedling at night for 60 seconds, 3x a week, however you can definitely GloPRO® more (even every day if desired). We roll at night to allow our skin time to rejuvenate in conjunction with our body’s natural reparative cycle. Plus, skin can be flushed and sensitive post-microneedling, so this allows our faces time to sleep it off.
Not at all! GloPRO® Microneedling Regeneration Tool was designed with needles of a certain density, shape and length so that it is a completely painless experience. The texture of the MicroTip™ Attachment Head combined with the microcurrent stimulation creates a gentle tingling sensation that’s totally addictive.
Let the weight of the GloPRO® work its magic, no extra pressure is required.
GloPRO® has four interchangeable MicroTip™ attachment heads of various sizes and needle lengths that can be used to treat concerns from cellulite to fine line reduction. Each MicroTip™ is designed for the specific skin densities all over our bodies:
- GloPRO® EYE MicroTip™ - 0.3mm in length 240 needles
- GloPRO® BODY MicroTip™ - 0.5mm in length, 1680 needles
- GloPRO® LIP MicroTip™ - 0.2mm in length, 240 needles
- GloPRO® FACE MicroTip™ - 0.3mm in length, 540 needles
Before using GloPRO®, clean the skin and target areas with a GloPRO® Skin Prep Pad (strong enough to remove any invisible gunk remaining on the skin). You can follow use of GloPRO® with nutrient rich serums and oils, including vitamin A, to help restore skin's bounce and glow.
We think of it this way – microdermabrasion is a traditional horizontal exfoliation, while microneedling is a new type of vertical exfoliation. Microdermabrasion horizontally removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells. Microneedling creates vertical micro-channels in the skin.
Yes! You can use GloPRO® in conjunction with injection treatments and fillers. The most popular form of injection treatment (you know the one) lives within the muscle while GloPRO® stimulates the above layer of skin. In fact, a lot of people use GloPRO® in lieu of injectables and fillers. However, we do recommend consulting with your physician for a personal treatment recommendation.
Yes! Unlike some injections or retinol, GloPRO® is one of the only things you can use while pregnant because it’s 100% ingredient-free. GloPRO® doesn’t introduce a synthetical topical into your system, instead it stimulates skin to boost collagen production.
Yes! When using any highly active products in conjunction with GloPRO, perform a small patch test on skin.
