Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses your skin’s natural healing abilities to rejuvenate your look. During a microneedling session, your aesthetic specialist at Loven Dermatology + Aesthetics uses the SkinPen microneedling tool to create microtears in the surface layer of your skin.
These tiny tears quickly close but activate your skin’s healing cascade, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are structural proteins that keep your skin strong and resilient.
As you get older, collagen production slows down, contributing to the development of lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling benefits many skin needs and concerns. In addition to building new layers of collagen and elastin, microneedling:
Microneedling with SkinPen is safe for all skin types, requires little downtime, and provides remarkable results.
Your aesthetics expert at Loven Dermatology + Aesthetics may recommend adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your microneedling treatment to enhance the beauty benefits.
PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that comes from a sample of your blood. It contains a high concentration of platelets, which are tiny cells that not only stop cuts from bleeding but also have growth factors and specialized proteins that heal the damaged tissue.
When combined with microneedling, PRP enhances your skin’s healing powers to improve your beauty outcomes.
Loven Dermatology + Aesthetics takes a patient-centered approach to care and customizes your treatment plan to match your beauty needs and goals. Your provider reviews the details of your microneedling treatment during your consultation so you know what to expect.
In general, your provider cleanses your skin with an antibacterial agent and applies a numbing lotion to ease discomfort during your treatment. Then, they use the SkinPen device to create the micro-tears on the surface of your skin.
If using PRP, your provider prepares and applies the PRP to your skin before the microneedling treatment. The microneedling tool drives the healing properties from the PRP into your skin to get the desired results.
You may notice some redness and swelling following your microneedling session, but there’s no need for downtime, and you can resume your usual activities after your session.
Though you may notice an improvement in the look of your skin after your first microneedling session, the team may recommend a series of treatments to get the best results.
