Have you ever dreamed about finding that fictional “fountain of youth?” Do you feel like you have tried everything, but you still do not have the results you are looking for? If you answered yes to these questions, then you have come to the right place! We want to give you the skinny on the latest technology advancement in creating a gorgeous, youthful appearance. SkinPen Micro-needling!
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive treatment that is great for erasing lines around the lips, helping with crepiness under the eyes, lightening stretch marks, and treating acne scars for adults over the age of 22. It is also a wonderful treatment for skin tightening and rejuvenation. SkinPen is not only effective for the face, but also for the neck, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back, and is perfect for all skin types.
What to Expect During the Treatment– SkinPen is the first FDA-approved micro-needling device that uses a precise, depth-controlled system that penetrates the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen. During the procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. By using super tiny needles to prick the skin, micro-needling signals the body to begin the healing process, creating new, healthy cells. The new cells are full of collagen and elastin, the ingredients needed for fresh, supple skin. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes and is done in the office.
What to Expect Right After the Treatment– After your treatment, you will have redness that is much like a mild sunburn. You will want to stay out of the sun and keep your skin clear of product for the rest of the day. The following day, your skin will probably still be a little pink but you will be able to wear makeup to cover it up and you can return to your normal activities. The good news is you will be able to tell a difference in the smoothness of your skin right away, especially around the eyes and mouth. The results will continue to get better over time!
What to Expect in the Weeks/Months Following the Treatment– To really see optimal results, it is recommended that you get at least three SkinPen treatments (6 if you are treating acne scarring). You must wait at least 30 days in-between treatments to give your skin time to heal. You will see exceptional results within 4 to 6 weeks after your treatments and you can maintain these results for around 6 months after your last treatment!
For the face and NECK! – When we think about aging, it is normal to focus on our crow’s feet and laugh lines, but did you know that our neck actually shows aging way faster than our face? The skin on the neck is thinner and more prone to loss of elasticity, making it the #1 area to get wrinkles. This is why many people choose to use SkinPen on the neck and face to tighten and firm skin so that they get a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
The best news about SkinPen is the fact that you are using a natural process to remove wrinkles and scars. There is no injection of chemicals or toxins into the body. Your body produces only what it needs to heal itself. It is minimally invasive, has minimal pain and excellent results.
