Microneedling - Dr PEN 


Microneedling

is a cosmetic procedure. It involves pricking the skin with tiny, sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it called collagen Induction Therapy.

Microneedling Benefits

Microneedling may help with issues like:

  • Acne scars
  • Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
  • Large pores
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

What Happens When You Get Microneedling

First, you’ll get a numbing cream smoothed onto your face so you can’t feel the needle pricks. Then the Esthetician will move a pen shaped tool with tiny needles around your face. The needles make small cuts in your skin, which causes a bit of bleeding. The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles. Most people get microneedling on the face, but it can also done on other parts of the body, such as your stomach or thighs. Most people need 4-6 treatments to see a difference.
