The natural architecture of our skin deteriorates as we age, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and often uneven skin texture. Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a great way to address these signs of aging on the cellular level.
SkinPen microneedling at Faces PLLC uses precise micro-perforations to jump-start natural collagen production, leading to a visible reduction in the early signs of aging and lessening the appearance of acne scars. This minimally invasive treatment offers benefits similar to those of a chemical peel or light laser resurfacing but with less potential for irritation.
Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin— the two proteins predominantly responsible for the skin’s structure. The outcome is beautiful, more youthful-looking skin.
The skincare experts at Faces PLLC list seven reasons why you should try SkinPen icroneedling to improve the look of your skin this fall:
1. Brightens the Look of Dull Skin
Categorized as collagen induction therapy, SkinPen microneedling triggers a collagen-building process that is most evident one week after the procedure. Most patients report their skin feeling tighter, looking brighter, and seeing a more youthful glow following each SkinPen treatment.
2. Lessens the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
The SkinPen device creates hundreds of microscopic channels in the skin, activating dormant fibroblasts (a type of biological cell). In turn, this then generates collagen to heal the micro-punctures, leading to overall improvements in skin tone and elasticity.
3. Lifts and Remodels Sagging Skin
Collagen levels rise after SkinPen treatment, so the epithelial structure in your skin becomes stronger and more resistant to stress. For several months after your treatment, your skin will continue to show improvement in elasticity, improving the skin’s overall texture and lessening the appearance of fine lines.
4. Smoothes and Refines Depressed Acne and Trauma Scars
The healing response triggered by SkinPen microneedling speeds up cellular renewal, which helps to further smooth the skin. The damaged cells found in acne scars, rough patches, and fine lines are naturally shed as the skin heals, and the healthy cells take their place.
5. Will Not Lighten Dark Skin, Cause Hyperpigmentation, or Irritate Sensitive Skin
Microneedling has been safely used on a wide variety of patients with all skin-types. It is exceptionally uncommon for it to lighten dark skin types, cause hyperpigmentation, or irritate already sensitive skin.
6. Gently Slows the Aging Process
SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis. This triggers new collagen synthesis without causing any further scar tissue formation.
7. It’s Minimally Invasive
The area being treated can generally be quite red afterward but will reduce considerably within 24 hours. Makeup can be applied the following day, and patients can resume all normal activities.
