Triggering a skin rejuvenation process can be accomplished merely by creating tiny micro-channels in the dermal layers. This may sound a bit weird, but it works, and the procedure is minimally-invasive with little to no downtime after the treatment. SkinPen™ is a handheld device that’s perfect for treating smaller areas of concern. Fine wrinkles and discolorations such as scarring, blemishes, and stretch marks can be virtually eliminated with this treatment.
We serve Longmont and all of the northern suburban areas of Denver. Our specialty is skin care, and our cosmetic treatments can result in smoother, more youthful skin. If you’re wary of chemical treatments or abrasive resurfacing, SkinPen™ may be the treatment you’ve been seeking.
How Microneedling Improves Skin Texture
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. When tiny channels are produced in the skin, the columns fill with fluid and nutrients. Basically, the body is cleansing the area and then preparing it for tissue creation. Because it’s the skin that’s affected, collagen production increases. After a series of treatments, the skin becomes even more supple and taut. The increased amount of collagen means less visible dynamic wrinkling. Dark spots such as blemishes and acne scars also become less visible because some of the material that makes up the blemish has been replaced with healthier skin tissue.
Using SkinPen™
When we consult with the client in Longmont, we observe the skin tone and note the thickness of the dermal layers where wrinkling occurs. SkinPen™ is a handy tool because it’s slim and because it has a small tip that can be fitted with a disposable cap.
There’s no pre-treatment regimen that the client needs to perform prior to the treatment. We cleanse the skin thoroughly and press the tip of the pen against the skin. We usually schedule a series of treatments over the course of a month or so. Collagen production will continue at an accelerated rate for weeks after the treatment schedule has been completed.
