Skin rejuvenation comes in many forms and flavors, but the most effective cosmetic techniques involve the stimulation of healthier tissue. This can be achieved through many different treatments. SkinPen micro-needling is one of the most effective procedures available. This is a specialized treatment that should only be performed by a professional.
Properly performed, micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, can actually smooth out the skin surface and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks. We will be happy to consult with you about any skin concerns you have and discuss how this treatment can help take years off your appearance.
Candidates for Micro-Needling
The ideal candidate will be an adult who is experiencing dull, brittle skin that has regional discolorations as well as fine lines and wrinkles. A decrease in the amount of collagen produced by the body is the primary culprit. It becomes difficult to keep the skin smooth, moist and supple. Enlarged pores often become much more visibly apparent during the middle-age years, and micro-needling can effectively reduce the size of these annoying pock-marks.
The Science Behind Micro-Needling
When the skin is pricked, the body responds by sending nutrients to the dermal and epidermal layers. The creation of replacement tissue is accompanied by an acceleration of collagen production. Micro-needling is an effective way to induce this process.
The procedure works best when the skin is pricked only deep enough to penetrate through the epidermis and the middle dermal layers. Therefore, the thickness of the skin in the treatable area varies from one individual to another, so that is why many different sizes of needle instruments are available.
The multitude of channels created by the SkinPen device will fill with lymphatic fluid and blood that is full of nutrients. Slowly but surely, tissue generation fills these tiny shafts, resulting in smoother skin with less visible wrinkling, scarring or spotting.
Which Procedure Works Best?
During your consultation with us, we examine the face closely and design a customized treatment plan that may involve multiple treatment sessions. The body is given time to heal between each treatment session. We use SkinPen to perform treatments because of its versatility and the many areas it can treat. Most micro-needling treatment sessions do not take long to complete.
The recovery is quick, and there is no downtime for the client. The production of collagen increases slowly, so you will get to enjoy the final results after a few months. However, these results are quite long-lasting. This is one of the biggest advantages of micro-needling; it’s the next best thing to a permanent treatment.
