Micro-needling technology makes use of numerous needles to vertically pierce your skin using an automated vibrating function. Moving MicroPen across the surface of your skin assists in stimulating the production of collagen, while at the same time facilitating the creation of fine channels in your skin.
The new channels are able to carry as much as eighty percent more topical nutrients, allowing treatment to be delivered deep into the fibroblasts so that they can be used to feed the cells lying in the basal and dermis layers. The increased absorption of active ingredients by the skin stimulates its repair process, providing for relatively quick results.
How Does it Work?
Advanced skin needling is preferred by many due to the fact that it is able to promote the infusion of collagen into the body, without leaving any scars behind. This treatment and fractional laser treatments are similar, but the former does not have any side effects and neither is it accompanied by unwanted downtime.
In addition, the treatment has also proven to be more effective compared to chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Compared to traditional skin needling rollers, the MicroPen also causes minimal skin damage and less trauma to the skin. It helps to reduce discomfort, making it an ideal treatment for epidermal damage.
The needles used to administer the treatment are disposable, which assists in doing away with a cross-contamination risk and guaranteeing that the treatment will be customized to suit your needs, thanks to the adjustable needle depths. The treatment can be used to reach traditionally hard to treat areas, such as the lips and eyes.
As mentioned earlier, MicroPen promotes scarless healing without experiencing any downtime or the side effects associated with similar treatments such as roller or laser technology. It also promotes the normal deposition of woven collagen to assist in enhancing the treatment process.
• In contrast to rollers, MicroPen causes minimal skin damage and less trauma, leading to reduced discomfort. This is a factor that helps make the treatment more efficient and comfortable.
• It is considered to be more effective than chemical peels and microdermabrasion
• Suitable for various delicate areas in the body including the region around the eyes and nose
• The fact that the needles are adjustable means that the treatment can be tailored to meet each person’s individual needs
MicroPen treatments do not have any downtime, although you are likely to experience some facial redness for between twelve and forty-eight hours after undergoing the treatment. Many people are able to go about their day-to-day duties immediately after completing the treatment.
For those experiencing facial redness, the physician may recommend applying a breathable skin camouflage to help you seal the skin, and cover any available redness to allow you to return to work immediately.
