5 Reasons SkinPen Microneedling Might Be Right for You!
SkinPen microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can improve your skin’s quality, texture, and overall appearance. But why might someone want to get SkinPen microneedling done, and how would they know if the procedure is right for them?
In this article, the expert team at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Center in New Orleans, LA, discuss the procedure, then examine 5 of the main reasons patients love the SkinPen microneedling procedure.
What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen microneedling involves using needles to create tiny, microscopic wounds on your skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. The procedure can improve your skin’s quality, texture, and overall appearance through the stimulation of new collagen production and can be used to help treat oily skin or acne-ridden skin. This procedure is both safe and effective and has been used for years.
5 of the main reasons people consider SkinPen microneedling as an ideal skin treatment include the following:
1. Smoothen the Skin
As the skin recovers from the numerous micro-wounds inflicted by the microneedling procedure, the treated area tightens due to the formation of new skin cells. These new cells create a smoother, more youthful surface and appearance to the skin.
2. Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
SkinPen microneedling helps eliminate fine lines and wrinkles caused by skin laxity by tightening the skin surface, reducing lines radiating from the eyes, between the eyes, around the nose, and those running from the corners of the mouth.
3. Reduce Acne Scarring
By creating small micro-wounds, the microneedling procedure encourages the skin to heal in a controlled manner across the treated area. The normal scarring process is the exact opposite of this process, where scars form when our bodies seal and close a wound. With SkinPen microneedling, scarring becomes less visible by encouraging the area to heal in a uniformed way, and in some cases, will even be unnoticeable.
4. Reduce Oily Secretion
The procedure helps reduce the size of skin pores, which will directly correlate with a reduction in oil secretion, thus reducing the oil level of the patient’s skin.
5. Improve Texture
By combining all the factors discussed above, the SkinPen procedure improves the overall texture of the facial skin completely. With less visible lines and scars, tighter skin, and less oil, the texture is dramatically improved with this simple, minimally-invasive procedure.
