If you find yourself asking the question “is there microneedling near me?” the answer is yes and it’s right here. One of the major benefits of this is the fast recovery time, fast procedure time, and we utilize the SkinPen® which is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA. 

What Is Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that improves the overall appearance and condition of your skin. As we age, our body’s production of both collagen and elastin decreases. This creates the formation of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure itself is completed via a derma roller that has small needles that prick the skin. The goal of the treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue that will result in smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. 

The Process is Done in Three Phases:

Phase I: 

Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect wounds, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.

Phase II:

Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells and a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase III: 

Remodeling. The would is replaced with new dermal tissue and blood vessels.

Through our use of skin pen, tiny micro-injuries to the dermis are created in the desired treatment area. These tiny micro-injuries to the dermis stimulate your body’s natural production of both collagen and elastin. Aiding in maintaining our skin’s youthful appearance and reducing the signs of aging. 

Does Microneedling work 

The quick answer is YES! More so the benefits of the procedure are even better. You can expect improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, and overall skin texture. If you suffer from acne scars or scars from any injuries this can help restore those areas. This treatment also helps oversize pores reduce. Most of all it contributes to the ongoing maintenance of healthy skin. In a clinical trial completed by skin pen, 90% of subjects would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
