Microneedling with the SkinPen: How Does it Work?

The number of ways your skin can become damaged boggles the mind. Brown spots, lines, wrinkles, and scars can really take a toll on your appearance and self-esteem. Although most people are bothered by skin problems caused by heredity, aging, or the environment, they usually just accept these unwelcome skin changes as a part of life and move on. Others are not so complacent. They seek out treatments to help their skin look as close as possible to what it did before their problems began. Fortunately, there are non-surgical techniques available that allow you to enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for surgery that is often too risky or expensive. One of the best techniques out there is microneedling with the SkinPen®.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, sometimes called collagen induction therapy, involves the use of a microneedling device that is moved over the surface of your skin. The device is covered in tiny, sterile needles that penetrate the skin to a certain depth.

Although the punctures created by the process are virtually invisible, they coax your body into turning over old skin cells in favor of new ones. New collagen fibers are laid down, and your skin takes on a more even skin tone. Problems like wrinkles, creases, blemishes, and scars begin to fade.

What is the SkinPen®?

This is an advanced microneedling device that is safe for all skin types in reducing the appearance of fine lines and other skin conditions. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that requires virtually no downtime for the client.

The SkinPen® is superior to microneedling devices like derma-rollers that too often break, bend, or rust, which can lead to an infection or scarring. The device uses disposable needles that are adjustable in length, which allows for differences in skin types and skin thickness.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

After your SkinPen® treatment, your skin will appear somewhat red for a few hours. This is normal and is a good sign that your body is responding properly to the microneedling process. Over the following weeks, you should see a gradual improvement in your skin condition as your skin heals and remodels itself. Any wrinkles, scars, or blemishes will gradually begin fading. More serious skin problems may require multiple treatments for optimal results.
