Your skin has seen it all. And as you age, time and wear begin to show up on it. If the basic spa treatments haven’t given you results, you may want to try a medi-spa treatment called microneedling.
Needles? In my skin? Before you get scared off, take a breath, and keep reading. Because micro-needling may be the treatment you have been looking for to get rid of:
- Unwanted acne scars
- Imperfections plaguing your beautiful skin
Here’s the Science Behind Microneedling
Needles are inserted deep into your skin (don’t worry, your healthcare provider will apply a numbing agent first). The micro-injuries or punctures caused by the needles encourage your body to send healing agents (elastin and collagen) to repair the damaged dermal layer.
Your skin then repairs itself, making it look and feel:
SkinPen®: Our Preferred Tool of Choice
We perform microneedling with a derma roller. And, our preferred tool is SkinPen® by Bellus Medical. SkinPen is:
- A medical-grade
- State-of-the-art device
- Designed to improve the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Scars on the face and body
SkinPen® induces the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen and elastin synthesis without causing scar formation.
Safest and Most Effective
SkinPen is the safest, most effective vertical micro-needling device used to erase signs of aging, acne, and imperfections and promotes a radiant, even skin tone.
It minimizes the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne or body scars
- Stretch marks
- Pore size
What Can Microneedling Do for Me?
Healthcare providers use microneedling to treat many skin-related issues, including:
- Skin pigmentation issues
- Stretch marks
- Loose skin caused by weight loss or liposuction
Who Can Receive Treatment?
Most anyone! You are a candidate as long as you do not have any:
- Active lesions
- Wound healing issues
Your healthcare provider will skip over areas with active acne or tender acne cysts. So, you may want to wait until your skin has cleared up from any outbreaks before going in for the procedure.
Why Microneedling Over Other Options?
Microneedling has a reputation for being less costly and more comfortable with a shorter recovery period than laser treatments.
And, the risks are lower than many skin treatments, like:
- Chemical peels
- Laser therapies
- Light therapies
Microneedling is more effective than more aggressive acne scarring treatments.
What Are Risks?
Like any other safe and effective procedure, microneedling still has some side effects and risks. Because of the nature of the procedure, you can expect some skin irritation.
Other side effects could include:
- Pigment problems
- Discomfort at the site
- Flaking skin
