What is Microneedling?
Microneedling rejuvenates your skin using very fine needles called microneedles to gently puncture your skin and stimulate a healing response, which in turn triggers collagen and elastin production.
Collagen and elastin are proteins that are essential for healthy skin, yet their production declines as you get older. As a result, your skin loses tone and wrinkles develop. As microneedling boosts these structural proteins, your skin becomes stronger and more resilient.
What Skin Problems are Treated with Microneedling?
Microneedling effectively improves cosmetic concerns such as:
- Loose skin
- Fine lines
- Brown spots
- Acne scars
- Large pores
Microneedling can restore skin anywhere on your body, but two of the most popular areas are the face and chest.
What are the Benefits of SkinPen® Microneedling?
The SkinPen is a cutting-edge microneedling device that delivers tiny needle pricks vertically. Most microneedling tools roll the microneedles over your skin. SkinPen’s vertical delivery can reach small areas that rollers can’t, such as the contours around your nose.
With the SkinPen, your provider at Mohs Surgery & Dermatology Center can also customize your treatment by adjusting the length of the needle to match your skin’s thickness.
