The key to stronger, healthier-looking skin is collagen. Unfortunately, as we age, our collagen production begins to decrease, leading to many common blemishes including rough texture, dull tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and sun spots. With microneedling with the dermapen, patients can achieve smoother, stronger skin to improve their blemishes at the source.
Microneedling involves the use of very tiny needles to create micro-punctures below the skin. The micro-needles target deeper layers of skin where collagen is produced. The body then treats these punctures as real wounds, triggering the production of new collagen and elastin to fill in the punctures. The dermapen has proven to be the safest and most effective microneedling device on the market. The dermapen uses many straight needles with just the right depth to trigger new collagen without causing scarring.
Candidates for microneedling with the dermapen are those who experience a range of skin concerns including:
- Fine lines
- Age spots
- Mild acne scarring
- Rough texture
- Dull tone
Treatment with microneedling can benefit individuals both young and old to restore collagen loss or maintain their youthful collagen production. those with active acne of other skin conditions may not be candidates for microneedling. Adley DaSilva will examine the skin to determine if microneedling is the best course of treatment.
For the microneedling treatment, Adley will glide the dermapen across the skin to create channels. He will make several passes over the areas of concern, making several micro-punctures at a time. Once channels have been created beneath the skin, he will then apply the appropriate skin care products to finish the treatment. Skin care products are more effectively absorbed after treatment with microneedling, allowing for optimal results.
After treatment with microneedling, patients can expect some redness and swelling. Some report an instant smoothness, however, results will be gradual as your skin goes through the healing process. Over the next several weeks, this will lead to the production of new collagen for smoother, more youthful-looking skin that lasts.
