Microneedling

What Makes Microneedling One of the Hottest Med Spa Treatments of 2014?

You’re most likely familiar with some basic complexion treatments, like facials. You may also have heard of some more intensive treatments, such as deep chemical peels or laser skin rejuvenation. But what about those patients who want more noticeable results than a facial can provide, yet with less potential downtime than a deep chemical peel or laser treatments? That’s where microneedling comes in.

Microneedling: A Happy Medium

Microneedling with the SkinPen™ offers patients the perfect marriage between a light lunchtime facial and an intensive peel. While patients may experience mild swelling or pinkness for a couple of days after their treatment, microneedling can be scheduled as a simple weekend procedure, allowing patients to get back to their normal routine as quickly as possible.

Skyrocketing Interest in Microneedling Benefits in 2014

Users on one of the most popular cosmetic sites, RealSelf, became more interested in microneedling procedures in 2014 — by 228 percent. With several members offering their own before and after photos displaying the rejuvenating benefits of microneedling, the skin-enhancing technique are likely to continue growing in popularity in 2015.

How SkinPen™ Works

SkinPen™ treats acne scars and fine wrinkles by activating your skin’s natural healing process. Creating tiny punctures in the skin with micro-needles increases your skin’s production of collagen and elastin, which can heal scars, increase firmness, improve uneven skin tone and even help reduce stretch marks.

The best SkinPen™ results are seen in patients who undergo a series of treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Because the benefits of SkinPen™ can continue to develop for several months, many patients report ongoing improvements for up to six months after their last treatment.
