You want to fight the signs of aging naturally, but you aren’t ready to commit to any cosmetic injectables like neurotoxins or dermal fillers. So how do you obtain that youthful glow without fillers or Botox? The answer lies in collagen induction therapy. You need to undergo anti-aging treatments that increase the body’s natural collagen production, and at Beauty Co in Raleigh, NC, we have a treatment that does just that: SkinPen Microneedling.
What Is SkinPen Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of medical-grade needles that pierce the skin and create micro-channels. Different companies have created different devices to perform this treatment, and one of the most effective methods that we have chosen to offer our clientele is SkinPen Microneedling.
This treatment involves the use of the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, the SkinPen, created by Crown Aesthetics, which has been clinically proven to improve acne scars.
What Is a SkinPen?
The SkinPen looks just like it sounds. It is a hand-held device that is packed with medical-grade, hair-thin needles held within a cartridge. One of the benefits of the design is that the device is that it is surrounded by a BioSheath.
This BioSheath creates a barrier within the device, which keeps it sanitary when being used on multiples patients. The cartridges are also interchangeable and disposable, which helps maintain optimal sanitary measures.
How Does It Work?
The SkinPen works by capitalizing on the benefits of collagen and the way that it naturally improves the skin. As a form of collagen induction therapy, this treatment creates controlled, tiny injuries all over the skin.
The needles in the pen insert into the skin repetitively and the injuries that the needles create force the body to begin the healing process. The body’s healing process improves the skin since it relieves heavily upon the increased production of collagen.
Collagen, Collagen, Collagen
Collagen induction is the primary purpose of microneedling. When collagen production increases, the skin improves. This treatment capitalizes on this fact and forces the body to produce more collagen which results in plumper, brighter, more youthful skin. Collagen induction through SkinPen microneedling can produce such effective results because:
- It’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of acne scars
- It helps improve the appearance of stretch marks
- It helps treat pigmentation issues like hyperpigmentation and melasma
- It improves skin that has experienced a loss of resiliency
- It helps reduce the appearance of large pores
- It helps thicken skin that has become thin over time
- It helps treat wrinkles by filling them with collagen and creating a smoothness
- It treats and improves lax skin
How Many Sessions Will I Need to See Results?
Since this treatment involves the stimulation of a natural bodily process, it takes time to see full results. You will notice some improvements in your skin immediately and will continue to see more in the weeks following your treatment.
Remember, collagen production takes time. One session will benefit your skin but most people notice the most improvements after three treatments, each of which should have 30 days between.
What Are the Benefits?
When you compare this particular version of microneedling to other anti-aging methods, many advantages set it apart. Not only is it affordable compared to more invasive treatments, but it is accessible to all skin types and tones, and with no downtime, it won’t send you into hiding for a few days following your treatment.
When compared to more invasive anti-aging treatments, microneedling is an affordable option. This makes it accessible to a wide range of individuals who want to invest in their skin but don’t have room in their budget to spend thousands of dollars on treatments.
SkinPen Microneedling costs vary based on the size of the area treated as well as the number of treatments being performed.
It Effectively Treats All Skin Types
The SkinPen doesn’t have a type. It effectively treats all skin types, from the palest to the darkest skin tone. This makes it a versatile treatment for men and women of every skin type and color.
It’s a Quick Treatment
Microneedling treatments typically only take 30 minutes depending on the areas that are being treated. This is good news if you have a busy schedule but still want to make sure that you are taking time out of your day to invest in your skin.
Results Are Long-Lasting
Following the recommended three treatment sessions spaced 30 days apart, you will notice significant improvements in your skin and they will last as long as six months.
Once you notice that your results are beginning to fade, all you have to do to experience those results again and continue to improve your skin is schedule another series of treatments.
There’s Minimal Downtime
SkinPen microneedling is considered to be a noninvasive treatment and therefore requires very minimal downtime if any. Aside from following some minimal aftercare instructions, you won’t have to plan around downtime but can resume your normal, daily activities immediately following your treatment.
