At the very core, the MicroPen treats skin problems by stimulating the body’s natural healing response. It does so by using small needles to create tiny puncture wounds in the skin. However, because the needles don’t penetrate too deeply, the recovery time is short and the procedure can be performed quite often; every 4-6 weeks.
The MicroPen is an FDA-approved hand-held device that has a disposable set of needles at the very tip. This “pen” moves the needles back and forth very quickly, which significantly reduces any pain or discomfort associated with the procedure.
Further, this rapid movement and rotation of the needles allows your Eastlake Rejuvenation Wellness Center to create hundreds of micro channels in the skin very quickly – which means the entire face can sometimes be treated in less than an hour. To customize treatments, the MicroPen micro needling system has adjustable setting for the depth of the needle penetration. This means your medical provider can adjust the procedure to your comfort level, as well as achieve deeper penetration for more troublesome areas, like deep wrinkles.
What the MicroPen Treats
MicroPen micro needling has a number of benefits that can improve the appearance of your skin with regular treatment. As a maintenance tool, the MicroPen can improve skin texture, remove rough spots, and stimulate the production of collagen to increase skin elasticity.
However, this procedure can also address more specific skin problems, like acne scars, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. By stimulating the body’s natural healing response in targeted areas, the MicroPen can facilitate the natural removal of damaged cells. For example, when dealing with acne scars or other deep hyperpigmentation, clients can typically expect to see improvement in skin texture after 2-5 treatments.
Further, because of its versatility, the MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body, including for neck and chest wrinkles, stretch marks or scars on these areas.
Recovery after a MicroPen treatment is short, with most redness and discomfort subsiding within 24 hours. Of course every client is different, and those with sensitive skin may experience discomfort a little longer. However, most individuals can resume their regular skin care and makeup routine the very next day.
