As one of the top treatments for acne scars and one of the top skin care devices available, SkinPen is something really special. We’re delighted to be able to provide it to you here at Glo Med Spa & Wellness Austin, your local provider of SkinPen treatment in Austin, TX. There’s a lot to like about SkinPen, so here’s what you should consider about it and why it will work for you!
How does SkinPen microneedling work?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a kind of skin rejuvenation procedure. It’s only minimally invasive, using a device that lightly pricks the skin, and one of the most popular devices used is the SkinPen! Microneedling helps to minimize the signs of aging by rejuvenating the skin and breaking up blemishes and scars. By inducing micro-injuries in the skin, microneedling causes the body to heal itself with cytokines, and it also stimulates the body’s production of collagen and elastin which rejuvenate the skin.
With SkinPen microneedling, hundreds of microscopic channels are created. In fact, SkinPen works by cycling at about 100 stamps per second, creating over 1500 microchannels in the skin. SkinPen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool only medical professionals have access to, like ours here at Glo Med Spa & Wellness Austin. A treatment with SkinPen takes only about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the patient’s needs, and then that’s it, the patient is done and can expect results very soon!
What are the benefits of SkinPen microneedling?
Generally, SkinPen can and will reduce a patient’s signs of aging. Skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles can be treated effectively, or if the patient has issues with acne scarring, that can be treated easily. One of the biggest benefits of SkinPen microneedling is that it’s only minimally invasive, as opposed to surgical procedures which are highly invasive. An added benefit of minimal invasiveness is that the procedure can be done at a relaxing med spa like ours, so you don’t have to go to a sterile medical clinic to have the procedure done. There’s very minimal downtime with SkinPen microneedling, it’s safe for all skin types and tones, and it can be used on any body part, including the face and décolletage.
What can I expect from a SkinPen procedure?
First, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. This will numb the area and minimize any discomfort, but really, the discomfort is generally minor. You might only notice the vibration of the SkinPen tool. After the procedure, you can expect a bit of redness and swelling for a day or a few days, and over the course of several weeks, you’ll notice significant results. It can take a while for the results to reach their peak, and three treatments or more may be necessary, but you can expect to see significant results from your treatment(s)!
