What is DermaPen Microneedling?
The natural aging process reduces the amount of collagen and elastin we hold in our bodies, which is why we see the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. DermaPen Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment used to rejuvenate skin by restoring lost collagen and elastin. Small punctures are made into the skin while driving in the appropriate serums to address the condition being treated. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, making your face visibly smoother and firmer. Call today for more information or to schedule your DermaPen Microneedling session!
What are the benefits of DermaPen Microneedling?
DermaPen Microneedling is beneficial for the following:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing appearance of acne scarring
- Reversing sun damage
- Reducing uneven skin pigmentation and texture
- Tightening loose skin
The overall effect of this procedure will rejuvenate your skin, leaving it healthier, brighter, and firmer than it was before.
What can you expect from DermaPen Microneedling?
Prior to the procedure, we will put a numbing cream on your face to reduce sensitivity during the facial so you feel as little pain as possible. This procedure is safe and effective. The number of treatments needed is determined by the condition being treated. The serums used are formulated to be safe and effective when driven into the epidermis and dermis. However, please inform your physician at Vincent Surgical Arts of any allergies you may have prior to the start of the procedure.
Recovery and After Care
You will experience some swelling on your face after the procedure and the skin will have a red/pink hue (similar to a sunburn). There may be slightly more swelling on the second day after your procedure, but by day three the swelling will subside and your skin color will diminish to a pink hue or return back to your normal skin color.
Remember to use a gentle and soothing facial cleanser, rinse with lukewarm water, and gently pat your face dry for two days following your procedure. You may notice that your skin will feel drier than normal, but using Hyaluronic Acid will help to rehydrate your skin and restore balance.
Consult with your physician at Vincent Surgical Arts about your daily beauty regimen. It is recommended to not apply any makeup to your face for 12 hours after your procedure – keeping the skin clean and hydrated is essential for the first few days post-procedure. Avoid using alcohol-based toners and products, as well as direct sunlight for the first week or two as this will dry out your skin even more.
