What Does SkinPen Microneedling Do For Your Skin?

Each year, one in four Americans visit a doctor or dermatologist regarding ailments with their skin.

Of these skin conditions, the most common are acne and rosacea.

Ranging from mildly annoying to completely debilitating, acne and rosacea can cause physical damage in the form of scarring and psychological harm by reducing the confidence and desire to socialize.

Moreover, the natural aging process sees our skin become wrinkled, with the gradual appearance of fine lines slowly becoming more permanent, deeper furrows.

Fortunately, there is now a highly beneficial, non-invasive cosmetic treatment available which can treat acne, acne scarring, reduce the aggressiveness of rosacea, and prevent and/or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: SkinPen Microneedling.

Here, the expert team at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Center look at what SkinPen Microneeling technology is and how it can help you and your skin.

What is SkinPen Microneedling?

SkinPen Microneedling is the only microneedling device that is certified for safe use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

A handheld device, the SkinPen is similar to a tattoo gun but has more needles and doesn’t penetrate quite as deep as a tattoo needle.

How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?

The principle of microneedling revolves around inflicting thousands of micro-injuries on the skin surface, stimulating the body’s natural healing process.

By doing this, the SkinPen encourages the skin to produce elevated levels of elastin and collagen, which are essential compounds in maintaining the structural integrity of our skin.

What Does SkinPen Microneedling Do for Me?

As the SkinPen encourages compound recruitment and enhances the skin’s healing, the procedure has many functional and physical benefits for our skin.

First, the process helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines by maintaining laxity in the skin, preventing the skin from becoming loose and allowing these lines to form.

Secondly, for those suffering acne scarring, SkinPen Microneedling enhances uniformed healing over the scarring area, which can even-out, reduce, and possibly eliminate acne scars’ appearance.

Where rosacea is concerned, the issue is often weak blood vessels that are close to the skin’s surface. Rosacea occurs when these blood vessels burst, causing blood to seep into the dermis’s outer layer. SkinPen Microneedling strengthens these blood vessels, which reduces the impact that rosacea has when it flares up.
