Microneedling has become one of Hollywood’s hottest skincare trends to minimize facial lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size, and create a more even skin tone and texture, improving the way you feel about your appearance. SkinPen® microneedling is also the first microneedling technology to be FDA cleared and clinically tested to reduce the appearance of acne scars for patients 22 years of age or older. This treatment, available at our Fort Worth office, stimulates the body’s natural healing process by creating micro-injuries within the skin.
Microneedling is minimally invasive with little downtime afterward. Our Licensed Aesthetician and Certified Injector Jennifer Geyer can administer this treatment on all skin types to help reverse the signs of sun damage and aging. Using the body’s natural recovery processes, Jennifer can help improve your skin’s appearance through SkinPen® microneedling and restore your confidence.
SkinPen® activates your body’s healing process by creating inflammation in the skin through controlled microneedle injuries, which are customizable for each patient by varying the needle depth. Jennifer may apply a topical numbing cream to make the process more comfortable for you. After these micro-injuries are strategically placed, the skin will generate new collagen with improved blood supply resulting in a smoother appearance.
The wounds created through SkinPen® microneedling will be replaced with new, healthy tissue to freshen your complexion. Recovery varies from patient to patient, but redness and swelling for two to four days after treatment are common; many patients return to wearing makeup after one day of recovery. Acne scars and other skin concerns could be reduced in as few as three treatments performed one month apart.
In addition to reducing acne scars through microneedling, SkinPen® also reduces signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. Microneedling is less intense than other cosmetic procedures, such as chemical peels or laser treatments, while targeting identical skin issues. This procedure is customizable by adjusting needle depth to target varying skin levels and address your personal cosmetic needs.
In addition to possible mild skin irritation, SkinPen® microneedling may also cause bleeding, bruising, infections, peeling, dryness, and flaking. Clients with open wounds or who have undergone recent radiation therapy, have particular skin diseases (i.e., eczema or psoriasis), or are pregnant should avoid microneedling treatment.
While at-home microneedling devices are available, less invasive, and less expensive than professional treatments, the needles on these devices are blunter than medical-grade needles, increasing the risk of adverse side effects such as infections and injuries. In addition, professional in-office treatments typically use slightly longer needles that stimulate more of the healing response for improved results. For the best microneedling results, a professional microneedling treatment with SkinPen® is more effective, sanitary, and comfortable.
SkinPen® microneedling performed at our Fort Worth office is a cosmetic procedure that creates small, microscopic channels in the skin with needles to stimulate collagen and new cell production. If you suffer from an uneven skin texture, SkinPen® microneedling may be an excellent choice for you. Microneedling can also treat fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.
This treatment, which is safe for all skin types, may be performed on several body areas, including the face, neck, and décolletage. Since the recovery period is so short, SkinPen® microneedling is often preferred over other, more intense facial cosmetic procedures. SkinPen® microneedling could be the natural solution you’ve been looking for to improve your skin’s texture and appearance and reduce acne scars and fine lines. Call our office today to learn more.
