How Microneedling Works to Stimulate Skin and Make You Look Younger

Imagine how amazing your skin would look if those wrinkles and fine lines would just disappear. If you’re ready to turn back time and revitalize your skin without the risks of surgery, microneedling with the innovative SkinPen® may be just the solution you need.

At Dermatology Center of Northwest Houston, experienced aesthetician Mari Benavente relies on the SkinPen’s® technology to address bothersome wrinkles and facial creases, essentially making them disappear without surgery or downtime.

If you want younger-looking skin without the risks of surgery, learn more about how microneedling treatments with SkinPen® can help you.

Why microneedling is so effective

Microneedling is a safe procedure that uses the handheld SkinPen® device to create microscopic injuries in the surface of your skin tissue.

These tiny wounds stimulate your body’s own healing response and ability to regenerate itself. Your immune system works to prevent infection, increasing the flow of your blood to remove debris and impurities.

Your natural repair system also stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells. As new skin cells continue to develop in the weeks after treatment, they replace weak, old cells that no longer support your skin.

As a result, your skin becomes firmer, tighter, and younger-looking. Wrinkles and lines become less noticeable and your skin tone appears fresher and brighter.

Microneedling can even address sun damage and surface scars left behind by acne or chicken pox, enhancing the overall health of your skin.

Benefits without side effects

Microneedling requires no incisions or injections of foreign substances into your body. This makes the procedure a great option for adults of any age regardless of their skin tone or color.

The microscopic wounds created by the SkinPen® leave behind no scars and many people tolerate the quick procedure easily. Mari can even apply a numbing topical cream to the treatment area to keep you pain-free and comfortable.

Following your microneedling session, it’s normal to have mild redness and swelling in the treatment area, which resolves on its own.

You may wish to delay social activities for a day or two until redness resolves, but you can expect to get right back to your everyday activities immediately after your appointment, without any downtime or period of recovery.

Enjoy long-lasting results

Creating micro injuries with the SkinPen® instantly stimulates your body’s healing abilities, but it takes time for new cells to develop.

In the weeks after treatment, you’ll notice continued improvement in the appearance and tightness of your skin. Additional treatments, scheduled four weeks apart, can further boost your results.

Because microneedling triggers new cell production, you can expect your results to last for years to come. Occasional maintenance treatments ensure you retain your youthful looks, even when more birthdays pass you by.

Each microneedling treatment is customized to meet your specific needs. You can expect long-lasting results that look natural and emphasize your best features.

If you’re ready to try microneedling to enhance your skin’s health and get rid of wrinkles or acne scars, schedule a consultation today, online or by phone.
