Microneedling is a popular treatment for both anti-aging and acne. The technique can help soften and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
While microneedling is most popular on the face, it can be used on other areas of the body, such as the neck, chest, hands and even the scalp to restore and promote hair growth.
There are different techniques that can be used during microneedling, but all involve using a device with fine needles creating tiny punctures in the skin. The wounds created by the needles stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
This leads to an increase in collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels.
Studies Show Effective Treament Outcomes with Microneedling
For example, a study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology found that microneedling was an effective treatment for acne scars (1). The study involved 30 participants who were treated with either microneedling or laser therapy.
At the end of the study, the participants who received microneedling had a significant reduction in acne scars compared to those who received laser therapy.
Another study published in the Journal Dermatologic Surgery found that microneedling was an effective treatment for wrinkles and lines (2).
The study involved 40 participants who were treated with either microneedling or laser therapy.
At the end of the study, the participants who received microneedling had a significant reduction in wrinkles and lines compared to those who received laser therapy.
SkinPen Precision is the lead microneedling device.
It works to remodel the skin by creating millions of controlled microchannels in the skin to elicit your body’s natural wound healing cascade.
This simple proceedure activates your body’s natural skin healing power. This healing process works at the site of treatment to remodel the tissue resulting in new collagen and elastin, giving your skin a younger, firmer, and radiant appearance.
Microneedling is also beneficial because it can help to increase blood flow to the skin. This can help to bring nutrients and oxygen to the skin, which can promote healing and cell growth.
Additionally, the new blood vessels that are formed as a result of microneedling can help to disperse heat and sweat from the face, which can help to reduce the risk of acne breakouts.
Is SkinPen Precision Safe and Effective?
SkinPen Precision has over 90 validation studies to prove safety and efficacy for patients, and for all skin types.
Additionally, SkinPen has officially been FDA cleared to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the neck.
Collagen and elastin are the essential protien fibers in the skin that give it support and elasticity. As we age, our body produces less collagen and elastin, which can lead to wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Microneedling can help to reverse this process by stimulating the body to produce more collagen and elastin. This process can not only improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines, but can also help to reduce the appearance of acne scars and other scars.
The length of the needles used in microneedling are adjusted by the practitioner and will vary depending on the area being treated and results desired.
Lengths range from 0.5mm for superficial areas or thinner skin such as on the forehead, to 2.5mm in areas such as the cheeks or where there are deeper scars.
What to Expect After Your Microneedling Treatment
After a microneedling treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling. This is normal and will usually subside within a few days so there is little to no downtime! You should avoid sun exposure and using any harsh skin care products for the first few days after your treatment.
Some clients see results after 1 treatment. However, the number of treatments needed will vary from person to person. For anti-aging treatments, we recommend 3 treatments spaced every 4 weeks. For those with acne-scarring, it can take between 3-6 treatments to see best results depending on the depth of scarring.
