National Microneedling Day – October 26, 2024

National Micro-needling Day is celebrated on October 26 every year to inform the public about the use of the Vivace Experience device to carry out the micro-needling procedure of skin care. It is a day that aims to give the public all the necessary information required to keep them informed about the effectiveness of the micro-needling procedure, as well as to dismiss any other myths surrounding the process. Did you know that carefully piercing the skin and allowing it to heal on its own can help to make you look younger? Well, that’s what micro needling is all about.

History of National Microneedling Day

Vivace, a subsidiary of Aesthetic Biomedicals and the firm that manufactures the micro-needling machine, established National Vivace Microneedling Day in 2020 to honor the Vivace Experience micro-needling machine, which is widely utilized for the micro-needling method. This is in response to the growing popularity of using the machine to deliver the micro-needling skin-care procedure.

The micro-needling technique is a skin-care procedure that includes piercing the skin at the cellular level with several sterile needles and allowing the small pores formed to heal on their own. The goal of this procedure is to encourage wounded cells to recover to their natural state, resulting in a youthful and radiant appearance. Micro-needling is a piercing method that originated in Chinese acupuncture around 100 B.C. Furthermore, Egyptians utilized plant leaves and oil on their bodies over 6,000 years ago to acquire a youthful and beautiful complexion. Skincare, on the other hand, did not become popular until the 18th and 19th centuries. These centuries and the successive ones saw the explosion in the production of skin-care products for use by women.

Micro-needling began to take on the shape it has now in the 20th century. In 1905, dermatologist Ernst Kormayer conducted a similar method to treat scars and birthmarks, albeit it was not regarded as micro-needling. Micro-needling began to take on a more correct shape 90 years later, as it is today called. Between 1995 and the 21st century, dermatologists and plastic surgeons worked on this.
