What is Micropen Micro-Needling?
In essence, Micropen Micro-needling is a type of treatment designed specifically to lessen or eliminate scarring and wrinkling. While the substances known as elastin and collagen are already present within the body, micro-needling assists in boosting production of these substances, which provides your face and skin with a more youthful appearance. While there are several methods to provide a boost in the production of these substance, Micropen is a very precise tool that helps to reduce the amount of trauma that’s applied to the skin during treatment in comparison to alternatives.
What is Micropen Micro-Needling Used For?
Micropen micro-needling is used as a treatment method for a wide range of conditions. The most common of these is scarring from a previous trauma and wrinkles. The production of collagen and elastin lessens with age, which is why this therapy can be so beneficial to the overall appearance of your skin. Other conditions that can benefit from this treatment include tired skin, stretch marks and acne. If you’ve recently developed some scarring from your acne, this can also be eliminated through the application of micro-needling.
While the face is a common area of treatment for this therapy, it can be applied anywhere around your body. If you suffer from deep scars or wrinkles, these can also be reduced or eliminated altogether with micro-needling, though you should note that deeper conditions could require extra therapy sessions. This treatment is very minimally invasive, so there’s practically no downsides to making use of it for your skin. If you want to appear younger and healthier, this treatment could be what you’re looking for.
What Should Patients Expect During Treatment?
This treatment is very simple and takes hardly any time to complete. Before the actual micro-needling process is started, some topical gel is thinly applied to the skin where the therapy is taking place. The micropen then creates very tiny and practically imperceptible injuries on the skin without causing any undue damage. This allows for the gel that was initially applied to seep into the skin and fix any issues that are present. Though you will feel the treatment as it’s being applied to your skin, it’s hardly unpleasant and is completed very rapidly. Since the tiny needles on this device don’t actually puncture the skin too deeply, recovery time is kept to a minimum.
Is Micropen Micro-Needling Effective and When Results Will Be Visible?
Micropen micro-needling is a highly effective treatment for anyone suffering from the conditions mentioned previously. While results can differ, depending on the extent of your condition, most patients report at least some level of satisfaction with the treatment at hand. Even immediately after the procedure has been completed, you should start to see some basic results of more refreshed skin. However, a certain redness might be present at the treatment area for a few days, so don’t expect to see the final results for a little while. There are also some basic skin care products that we will recommend to you that should help to expedite the recovery process.
While you should notice a lot of improvement after the first few days of the recovery process, additional improvements will continue to occur well after the treatment has been completed. This period of improvement can last up to six months. Treatment sessions are spaced out around 1-2 months from one another. Most patients that seek this treatment will generally require around three or four separate sessions for the results to be as satisfying as the patient is looking for. In some cases, it may take up to eight sessions for the therapy to be completed. This is typically reserved for patients that suffer from deeper scarring or wrinkles.
