SkinPen microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of wrinkles, fines lines and acne scars. These treatments rejuvenate the skin, providing a more youthful appearance. Also known as collagen induction therapy, SkinPen microneedling minimizes the signs of aging by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Microneedling pen treatments are the preferred method of treatment for many skincare professionals.
What does SkinPen do to your skin?
SkinPen treatments help the skin in the following ways:
Inflammation – When the skin becomes penetrated, the repair process is stimulated in the skin to sterilize the wounds and heal any damage. It promotes the development of new tissues and enhances the blood supply in the region.
Proliferation – With new collagen production, the treated area is repaired and fresh skin is developed.
Remodeling – The treated area is substituted with new, healthier tissue underneath the dead layers of skin.
Rejuvenation – Microneedling pen treatments rejuvenate the skin by increasing collagen and elastin production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, evening skin tone and improving overall complexion.
The treated areas may experience swelling, redness or minor bleeding. The skin may also be warm for some time after the procedure. As it normally takes around 1-2 days post-treatment for the redness to vanish completely, the site must be treated like a sunburn. You can return to your routine activities right after the procedure, however refrain from applying heavy makeup and strenuous physical activity, as excessive sweating can negatively impact the results. It is also important to note that you should not perform any DIY or at-home micro-needling procedures. You could easily reverse all the treatment results and damage the skin. It is key to consult your skin care specialist before receiving any skin procedures.
Is SkinPen the same as microneedling?
SkinPen is a form of microneedling, but it differs from standard procedures. The biggest difference is the device used for the treatment. Although there are many different microneedling devices available on the market, one of the most common is a roller, which contains hundreds of ultra-thin needles that roll over the surface of the skin, penetrating the epidermis to produce collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
SkinPen is a special microneedling device created as an effective alternative to derma rollers. Microneedling pens are the preferred method of treatment as they cause less damage to the skin, require shorter downtimes and produce more promising results than a typical derma roller microneedling treatment.
Are microneedling results permanent?
While the effects of microneedling can be seen for a long time, the results are not permanent. To maintain long-lasting results with microneedling, follow-up sessions may be required. The more frequent someone receives microneedling, the less frequently they will require treatments to see the same results.
