SkinPen Microneedling in Midland, TX
SkinPen Microneedling at Midland Dermatology
The SkinPen Microneedling procedure at Midland Dermatology is one of the best ways to reduce the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and improve skin texture, or the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. SkinPen Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, which gives your skin a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
It is currently the only Class II microneedling device that has been approved by the FDA for treatment of acne scars on adults. However, the SkinPen helps improve the appearance of more than just acne scars. It is also a great tool to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and improve skin tone and texture. SkinPen has also recently been approved for treatment on the neck.
How does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
SkinPen Microneedling works by sending hundreds of microscopic channels into the layer just below the skin’s surface (dermis), to revive the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin. The microneedling device ultimately creates small “wounds,” which then creates a signal to your body to heal “the injury,” thus creating new collagen and elastin. Multiple treatments of SkinPen Microneedling works best for optimal results. After a few treatments, patients can expect to see fine lines and wrinkles disappear, improved skin texture and tone, and reduced appearance of acne scars and large pores.
Overall, our bodies lose 1% of collagen each year as we age, and wrinkles without treatment are inevitable. SkinPen Microneedling allows us to keep our skin youthful by helping prevent or reduce the appearance of aging.
You can expect the treatment itself to last about 30 minutes – 1 hour, depending on the number of areas treated and the degree of treatment.
What to Expect After SkinPen Microneedling Treatment
“Downtime” after treatment is different for every person. Most often, patients should expect to have some slight swelling, which feels like a sunburn, for 2-4 days after the procedure. Patients typically see results after a few treatments, and most patients receive a series of 3 procedures, spaced about 1 month apart. The number of treatments required to achieve desired results is dependent on your procedure goals and overall skin health. Results will vary based on the individual.
