As we age, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Collagen induction therapy, also known as Microneedling is the best way to address these signs of aging. Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin, to target the body’ natural wound healing response. This procedure results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
Skin Pen procedure takes only take 30 minutes. It is a comfortable experience with mild postprocedure effects, similar to mild-moderate sunburn. It is effective on the face, neck, and décolletage. The procedure is safe for all skin types, light to dark. The treatment is ideal at any time of the year.
A topical anesthetic cream is used to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure. The number of needling sessions depends on the individual’s skin conditions. Three or four treatments may be recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may require upward of five procedures. An interval of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments is recommended.
