Washington DC Micro needling SkinPen® with Hyaluronic Acid
Micro Needling therapy for skin revitalization and for treating acne scarring.
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin naturally diminish, leading to wrinkles, skin laxity and other signs of aging.
How SkinPen Micro needling Procedures Work
Washington DC Micro Needling Procedure
Each of our bodies has innate processes that will react to injury by producing new cells and extracellular materials (like elastin and collagen) to heal the damage. That is how the SkinPen achieves its results; by taking advantage of that natural process through the implementation of a finely tuned micro needling device, the SkinPen. This device initiates your natural healing process by creating hundreds of temporary micro-sized openings, or micro-channels, in the skin. These “fractionated” micro-channels are created thanks to the brilliant design of the SkinPen’s disposable needle cartridge, which achieves its work without any thermal energy or chemicals applied to the skin.
Benefits of Fractionated Approach
- Fast and safe method for inducing the production of collagen
- Requires no thermal energy and is entirely non-ablative (no removal of skin)
- Promotes scar-free healing
- Safe for all skin-types
- No major downtime
What to Expect After SkinPen Procedures
You can expect to experience effects similar to mild sunburns after the procedure; typically some redness, tenderness and some swelling. Despite that, there is no significant downtime after a SkinPen procedure. Patients can return to normal activities and conceal most of the mild side effects with make-up after just one day.
Micro needling Results with SkinPen
Since everyone’s genetic makeup and needs are different, procedure requirements and SkinPen results will vary. The number of sessions required and the depth of treatment will depend on what goals/results you would like to achieve.
Custom Sessions Produce Desired Results
While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal micro needling results, noticeable changes are typically seen just one week following treatment and gradually improve as the body’s healing process promotes the production of healthy, new cells and extracellular substances (e.g., collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid).
Patients with uneven skin tone and fine lines may see SkinPen results after just one procedure, while those looking to soften the appearance of acne scarring may require several procedures.
