Microneedling: Collagen Induction
Our SkinPen Microneedling system utilizes 14 precisely spaced micro-needles on a reciprocating head to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations, inducing a controlled injury into the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen, elastin, and growth factors to repair these microperforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out.
Some of the benefits include:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Lifts, tightens and rejuvenates skin
- Minimizes pore size
- Improves appearance of stretch marks
- Improves the appearance of scars
- Improves the appearance of acne scarring
Most patients look as though they have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours. Most patients usually recover within 24 hours or less. You may be slightly pink for 2-5 days and experience dry, flakey skin. Your aesthetician will recommend a post procedure regimen to aid in the healing process.
