Microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment for facial rejuvenation and scar treatment. At Lakefront Wellness, we rely on SkinPen, the only FDA-approved microneedling device. Here is everything you need to know about this treatment and how you can benefit.
The SkinPen® microneedling device uses several tiny needles to puncture the skin at varying depths. These small microneedles cause controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, resulting in collagen and elastin production. Producing collagen and elastin stimulates the rejuvenation process from the inside out, leading to healthy-looking skin that is less wrinkled, more toned, and lifted.
The wound-healing process also resurfaces the skin, replacing dead or damaged surface cells with healthy, new skin cells. Collagen and healthy skin from below the surface essentially “cover up” surface imperfections like acne scars, wrinkles, and more.
SkinPen microneedling can be used on the face, neck, and hands to improve many different skin conditions. Improve skin laxity to lift facial tissues, correct sagging cheeks or jowls, or repair stretch marks on other areas of the body. Resurface the skin to repair acne scars, trauma scars, enlarged pores, rough skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots. Oily skin or dry skin can benefit from this treatment.
SkinPen turns back the clock on skin aging by restoring collagen production lost over time. Sagging skin and wrinkles that come with aging are the result of collagen slowing down since collagen keeps the skin elastic and firm. Microneedling replenishes collagen in the skin and restores a more youthful appearance.
SkinPen is a non-surgical treatment which means minimal downtime and recovery and no scars! The results of microneedling will also develop naturally since there are no invasive measures that change the shape of your facial features.
Men and women with darker skin tones are not candidates for certain laser resurfacing treatments, but everyone can benefit from SkinPen microneedling. Laser treatments on dark skin could worsen skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation but microneedling bypasses the surface of the layer to target the deep dermal layers, making it safe for all skin tones and most skin types.
