Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure involving pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles to make more collagen and elastin, which heals your skin and causes it to appear younger. SkinPen microneedling treatments in Houston are designed to leave your skin feeling refreshed, renewed, and rejuvenated.
How does microneedling work?
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), triggering the skin’s healing process with microneedling can reduce the appearance of scars and dark spots while also improving skin elasticity.
Microneedling uses an electric handheld device with tiny needles to create precise, microscopic punctures in the skin. These “micro-injuries” stimulate the skin to repair itself naturally through a process that encourages the skin to produce new collagen. These elastic fibers result in tight, smooth, and youthful skin.
A series of three to five monthly or biweekly treatments are recommended to achieve desired results. You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if your overall health is good, but you have skin concerns that haven’t responded to other treatments, such as chemical peels.
