Microneedling uses several fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the outer layers of the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the body's natural production of elastin and collagen, two proteins that improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.
Microneedling may help reduce stretch marks, scars, and pores. Make an appointment for a consultation at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX to discover more about the results of microneedling and ways to personalize your procedure for your skin needs and goals.
You might be a good candidate for SkinPen microneedling if you are experiencing mild to moderate skin problems, like a decrease in acne scars, fine lines, dull skin, and texture.
Microneedling can also improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks and reduce the appearance of pores. The benefits of your treatment may take a few weeks to be fully revealed as your skin heals and collagen and elastin production are stimulated.
Your SkinPen session will be carried out in a private treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes. Topical anesthesia will be applied to the skin and allowed to soak in prior to the beginning of the procedure. This will ensure your procedure is more comfortable.
Next, the skin will be cleaned and a new, single-use cartridge will be attached to the head of the SkinPen handpiece. Finally, the device will be passed over your skin slowly but precisely. Once the treatment is complete, a serum, skin care product, or PRP could be applied to the skin to promote healing and protect your healing skin.
After your treatment, you might develop some swelling and redness. Downtime can vary depending on the depth and aggressiveness of treatment, but most redness and swelling typically subside in 2-3 days.
As the collagen and elastin supplies increase, it can take a few weeks before you attain obvious improvements to the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should plan to receive 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and then quarterly or biyearly maintenance as needed.
