Towcester Skin Clinic offers FDA certified SkinPen Microneedling as an option for treating Acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. The procedure is customized to your comfort level and targeted areas to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The body slowly regenerates healthier, stronger collagen and elastin and improved epidermal/dermal thickness.
In addition to healing response micro channels allow deeper penetration of serums and skin care products helping to improve skin texture and appearance.
There is very little down and most individuals find that the skin settles within a day.
How SkinPen Microneedling Works
Recovery time is quick which means very little downtime. SkinPen stimulates the body’s natural healing process by using tiny needles at high speed to create microscopic holes in the skin. The skin will heal quickly without destroying the surroundiung skin or tissue. This healing process with controlled micro-injuries allow release of growth factors and in turn dermal thickness is increased which is followed by improvements in collagen and elastin.
Micro needling is the most commonly used method to restore and rejuvenate the skin on the face, chest, neck and arms but can also be applied on other areas of the body if required. Micro needling may be part of a comprehensive treatment plan, used in conjunction with other treatments, but the procedure itself doe not include any foreign substances or fillers for its smoothing effect. This makes the procedure versatile and available to people with various skin types, regardless of most medications you may be taking currently. In addition, one important benefit is that after the treatment has been completed, you will be able to resume your daily activities.
The SkinPen settings can be adjusted and customized to your comfort level throughout the treatment depending on the area being treated and your concerns. As well as stimulating the body’s healing response the micro channels allow deeper penetration of serums and skin care products which are pushed deeper into the skin as the perforations are created.
What SkinPen Microneedling Treats
SkinPen Microneedling can improve skin texture and appearance, reduce roughness and even tone the skin with regular treatments. The healing response of the skin stimulates the production of collagen, increases elasticity and therefore promotes smoother firmer skin.
Microneedling may also benefit specific skin concerns.
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone
- Loss of firm, supple texture
SkinPen Microneedling is suitable for all skin types light or dark. Your suitability and contra indications will be discussed during your consultation.
Firstly the area being treated is cleansed and a local anaesthetic cream is applied to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. The Skinpen device is then placed against the skin for a few seconds at a time until the treatment area is covered.
Each treatment can last about one hour. For best results we recommend a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart and maintenance sessions once a year as the body slowly regenerates collagen and elastin and improves epidermal and dermal thickness. Microneedling works optimally when used in conjunction with our recommended skin care products. Your skin specialist Mel will recommend the best products for your skin type or condition. we trust in AlumierMD for brighter ideas in skin science.
Of course everyone is different, normally recovery after SkinPen Microneedling is short as most of the discomfort and redness subsides within 24-48 hours. If you have sensitive skin it may take a little longer to settle. The skin can feel a little tighter for a few days. We will give you a post procedure product to prevent the skin from drying which you can re-apply, as needed, up to 24 hours.
Most individuals can resume their regular skincare and makeup the very next day.
If you are interested in SkinPen Microneedling procedure please book a complementary consultation with Mel.
Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.
