Microneedling has become a popular treatment to address facial imperfections. In particular, the SkinPen® device is used to treat acne scars. If you have ever experienced acne, you know how discouraging it can be to see the problem spots clear up, only to be replaced by scars. SkinPen® is the first microneedling device to receive FDA approval, and it is a great way to achieve the clear skin you desire.
Here at The Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, we offer this microneedling device to help our patients see the skin they want to see in the mirror. You can visit us to learn more or contact us today to schedule your consultation!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles attached to a pen-shaped device. These needles penetrate the skin to create microchannels that stimulate healing and rejuvenation. When the skin becomes damaged through normal means (such as acne), collagen production is increased. This is what often leads to the formation of scars.
Microneedling causes minor damage to the skin, which forces your body to send healing agents to the area. This increases blood flow and creates new tissue, which can aid in lightening scars or smoothing skin texture. This is also known as skin remodeling.
Microneedling is controlled collagen induction, which allows our professionals to guide your skin to heal itself in an effective and uniform way. Some microneedling devices look like rollers, but these are less precise. The SkinPen® is able to get into small, hard to access places that a roller cannot.
