SkinPen Micro Needling is a cutting-edge, medical grade device that is specifically designed to enhance the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars on both the face and body. This state-of-the-art device allows for precise and controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of micro-injuries in the dermis. These micro-injuries automatically stimulate the production of new collagen, without causing the formation of scar tissue.
What is SkinPen Micro Needling?
Micro-needling has been proven to be safe and effective for a wide range of skin types. Each treatment session typically lasts about an hour and is spaced four weeks apart. For optimal results, it is recommended to undergo three to four treatments. However, for more severe scarring and stretch marks, up to six treatments may be necessary.
The wound-healing process involved in micro-needling consists of three phases. The first phase, known as the inflammation phase, is triggered by the piercing of the skin. This stimulates the immune system, leading to disinfection of the wounds, increased blood flow, and the initiation of new tissue formation.
The second phase, known as the proliferation phase, involves the development of a new network of blood vessels and the rebuilding of the wounded area with new granulation cells.
Finally, in the remodeling phase, the wound is replaced with new blood vessels and dermal tissues. This results in improved skin texture and appearance.
Following a micro-needling treatment, it is common for patients to experience redness and heat in the treated area. However, these side effects typically subside within 1-2 hours for heat and within 24-48 hours for redness.
SkinPen Micro Needling is a highly effective and safe procedure for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. It has the ability to stimulate the skin’s self-repair process and promote collagen synthesis. Additionally, it offers a non-surgical solution for achieving smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
