Microneedling is a revolutionary skin care procedure that involves creating tiny perforations in the skin to stimulate the bodies healing process. Your body has an amazing healing system in place that activates when you get an injury. It starts by sending proteins, called growth factors that promote cell growth to the site of the injury to begin collagen and elastin production which helps the skin to look and feel younger and healthier. An in-office microneedling procedures use your body’s own healing process to boost collagen production by 200 percent! It may seem like the newest trend in beauty skincare, but it’s actually been around and evolving for over 50 years.
What can SkinPen Microneedling help with?
Treating everything from wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and dull skin to issues such as scars, acne scars and stretch marks. In a 2009 study, 37 patients underwent microneedling procedures to treat atrophic facial scars (those sunken scars that result from acne, chicken pox, etc.). After several treatments, over 80% of the patients saw a reduction in scarring. This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis, softened wrinkles, and beautiful skin.
