If you have fine lines and wrinkles that bother you, or if you have acne scars that mar your complexion, you may be considering skin rejuvenation options. You may not like the idea of invasive procedures such as a facelift. If you’re looking for a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure, microneedling is a fantastic option.
How does SkinPen Microneedling work?
SkinPen Microneedling works by stimulating your body’s natural collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are natural proteins that give your skin a youthful appearance. Just as your skin works to heal itself after injury by producing more collagen and elastin, the SkinPen Microneedling can boost this natural process to help you achieve a natural, youthful look.
During the procedure, Dr. Prasad passes a handheld, pen-type device with tiny needles over your face. The pen creates very small wounds in your skin and blood comes to the surface.
When your skin experiences a wound, your body responds by producing more collagen and elastin to help heal it. That’s exactly what happens as a result of the microneedling process.
Is SkinPen Microneedling safe?
SkinPen Microneedling can rejuvenate and rebuild problem areas on the skin with assured safety. Treatments can be performed on all skin types, and even in delicate areas such as around the eyes, nose, or mouth. It can be used to treat all parts of the body, making it ideal for a patient that has acne scars on their back or stretch marks on the body.
What is the recovery process like?
A big advantage of SkinPen Microneedling is the quick recovery time when compared to some of the other options, like a surgical facelift, which requires weeks of recovery time. Your skin may appear to have a sunburn for a few days after microneedling. You can resume your normal activities on the same day if redness does not bother you.
