What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive, skin rejuvenation treatment which stimulates the growth of healthy new skin. Throughout the natural aging process, our skin experiences a depletion in extracellular substances, such collagen and elastin, which allows for the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and creases. However, with Microneedling, the formation of healthy new skin arrives full of fresh collagen, providing hydration to the skin and an overall youthful appearance.
At Skinique, we utilize a device known as SkinPen to perform our Microneedling procedures. SkinPen® is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.
How does Microneedling work?
Our SkinPen® allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis. As the body responds to these micro-injuries by naturally healing itself, the production of new healthy skin is stimulated, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis, without causing scar tissue formation.
What is the procedure like at Fort Worth?
A Microneedling procedure may cause mild discomfort, however, most patients have reported experiencing the sensation of a slight vibration. Patients may also opt to receive a numbing cream on the targeted area of concern, in order to provide for a more comfortable procedure.
Our Microneedling SkinPen allows for a variable depth (.25mm to 2.5mm) and the cordless design provide significant versatility to create change in many areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The actual procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of damage on the skin and results in little to no downtime for the patient.
While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal results, noticeable changes are typically seen just one week following treatment and gradually improve as the body’s healing process promotes the production of healthy, new cells and extracellular substances (e.g., collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid). The results reveal an improvement in the skin for up to six months.
Are there any side effects?
Common side effects may occur post-treatment on the treated areas, however these conditions are generally mild in natural and should resolve naturally within a few days. Such common side effects may include:
