SkinPen Microneedling is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, clinically proven to improve the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles. SkinPen works by creating 1600 micro-channels per second. The wounds stimulate your immune system to disinfect the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue. As the wound “remodels”, it is replaced with new dermal tissue and blood tissues which are rich in collagen and elastin proteins.
Treatments can be performed in as little as 30 minutes with little to no downtime.
At Anne Arundel ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery, we believe everyone deserves a chance to rediscover the vibrant and youthful skin beneath the imperfections. One of the most advanced treatments in our repertoire, SkinPen Microneedling, is a game-changer, offering patients a non-invasive solution to various skin concerns.
Symptoms Addressed by SkinPen Microneedling
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Over time, our skin loses its elasticity and displays signs of aging. SkinPen Microneedling targets these age-induced fine lines and wrinkles, stimulating the skin’s natural collagen production to smooth out and reduce its appearance.
- Sunspots and Age Spots: Prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to hyperpigmentation, manifesting as sunspots or age spots. The Microneedling process can help fade these spots by promoting skin cell turnover and allowing for better penetration of lightening serums and creams.
- Acne Scars and Other Superficial Scars: The trauma from past acne or minor injuries can leave behind lasting scars. SkinPen Microneedling addresses these scars by breaking down old tissue and fostering the growth of smoother skin in its place.
- Stretch Marks: Often the result of rapid weight changes or growth, stretch marks are streaks on the skin that can be a source of self-consciousness for many. Microneedling can reduce the visibility of these marks by promoting elastin and collagen production in the affected areas.
- Enlarged Pores: Large pores can be a breeding ground for acne and may make the skin look less smooth. Microneedling works to tighten the skin and minimize the appearance of large pores.
- Uneven Skin Texture: Whether caused by environmental factors, genetics, or past skin conditions, uneven skin texture can be addressed by the regenerative powers of Microneedling. By promoting skin healing and rejuvenation, the treatment aids in providing a smoother, more uniform skin surface.
The Necessity of SkinPen Microneedling
Harnessing Natural Healing
As we age, our skin’s natural ability to repair itself diminishes. Microneedling taps into this inherent healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production, essential proteins that maintain skin elasticity and smoothness.
Safe and Minimally Invasive
SkinPen Microneedling offers a safer alternative than some invasive procedures requiring significant downtime. It’s a procedure that works for various skin types, posing minimal risk of scarring or damage.
The treatment covers a range of skin concerns from age-induced wrinkles to scars from adolescent acne. It’s this versatility that makes SkinPen Microneedling a preferred choice for many.
Ensuring Lasting Results
- Protection from the Elements: Post-treatment, protecting the skin from direct sun exposure is essential. Quality sunscreen is vital to prevent damage and maintain the treatment’s benefits.
- Regular Skin Care: Adopting a balanced skincare regimen ensures that the new skin remains fresh and radiant. Gentle cleansing, regular moisturizing, and periodic exfoliation are key.
- Stay Hydrated: Drinking ample water and ensuring that the skin remains hydrated will further enhance the skin’s texture and appearance.
- Scheduled Follow-Ups: To sustain the results, periodic sessions, as advised by our doctor, can prove beneficial, keeping skin challenges at bay.
