So I just thought I would give you guys an update on how my skin is doing and any progress with the microneedling. I want to also tell those who are interested in microneedling that I did my 3rd treatment yesterday, 7-10-19. So, unfortunately I only have update pictures on how my skin is now, as it has been two months since I did my last microneedling treatment (which was my second one). I recorded a video for my 3rd treatment and that will be posted to my Life and DIY youtube channel shortly.
Updates! Here you can see my 10 years of anti-aging skincare treatment results and before & afters in one place. Check out all of my latest skincare posts.

Overall, I am seeing some improvements in my skin tone. I realized I probably didn’t do the treatment aggressively enough in a few key areas that I wanted to work on (areas around my eyes especially). So, for my 3rd treatment, at the end of the treatment I thought I had done enough but I then opened up a new needle cartridge and I went back in on those key areas. I used a depth of 1.5mm and I did have pinpoint bleeding around my mouth area or smile lines as they call them. I also did the lines on the forehead and there was pinpoint bleeding there as well. So, I hope that by going in a bit more aggressively, I may see better results after this treatment. We will see!
I noticed in person and in some photos that my pores (especially on the nose) are clogged or more noticeable and I know that is because I stopped using my favorite product for toner – which is the Mandelic Acid Toner from MakeupArtistsChoice.com. That stuff is absolutely amazing for any skin type, but I ran out of it months ago and waited on repurchasing. If you have noticeable pores and want them to be clean and clear and less noticeable, I highly recommend that toner. I am about to repurchase finally.
