Introduction to Microneedling
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that targets various skin concerns. By creating controlled microinjuries, microneedling stimulates the body's natural healing process, resulting in the production of collagen and elastin. These key proteins contribute to firmer, smoother, and more even-toned skin. Read below to learn more about how microneedling can help you get the results you want and the advantages of SkinPen, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling involves the gentle puncturing of the skin to create controlled microchannels in both the epidermal and dermal layers. This activates the body's natural wound healing cascade, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. As these proteins work together, they enhance the overall texture, tone, and elasticity of the skin. Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can address numerous skin concerns effectively.
Common Uses of Microneedling
Microneedling reduces the appearance of scars by mechanically breaking down and remodeling scar tissue.
2. Uneven skin tone and texture
Increased production of collagen reduces the appearance of large pores and uneven texture, promoting a smoother and more radiant complexion.
Hyperpigmentation and sun damage can be reversed with microneedling due to the production of collagen and the increased blood flow to the area.
4. Fine lines and wrinkles
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, leading to development of fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling stimulates the natural production of these proteins, helping to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
