Microneedling is an effective way to refresh your face and improve some of the most common skin concerns. Individuals, both young and old, are turning to microneedling in Bellevue for its skin rejuvenating benefits. Here’s what you can expect after your treatment with microneedling:

Minimal Risk

When the appropriate microneedling device is used by a licensed esthetician, there is minimal risk of infection or scarring after treatment. At Advanced Skin and Body, we use the only FDA-approved microneedling device on the market; the SkinPen. Its straight, sterile, and precise needles allow for the most effective and safest results.

Increased Collagen

Before you can enjoy the results of your microneedling treatment, your skin will need time to go through its natural healing process. During microneedling, tiny puncture wounds are created below the surface of the skin with the SkinPen device. This triggers the immune system to go to work repairing the puncture wounds. New collagen and elastin are produced, the essential ingredients to strong, healthy skin.

Skin Tightening

Over time, our skin begins to lose elasticity, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. With new collagen developing after microneedling, you can expect your skin to become stronger, tightening to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Many younger individuals are also turning to microneedling treatment to prolong their youthful looking skin with a boost of collagen.

Improved Blemishes

Along with tightening the skin, microneedling can also improve the appearance of common blemishes such as acne scarring, sun damage, and age spots and can shrink the pores. While the channels in your skin are present after microneedling, skin care products can be more effectively absorbed, so you can get the most out of your products for optimal skin improvement!

Microneedling in Bellevue has been gaining in popularity as more patients begin to understand the benefits it has on the skin. Because of this, many microneedling devices are entering the market, but the SkinPen is the only FDA-approved device so far. Keep reading to learn what sets the SkinPen apart!

What is the SkinPen® Microneedling Device?

The SkinPen is a handheld microneedling device that contains many tiny needles. In case you’re new to the microneedling world, the treatment involves creating tiny puncture wounds in the skin, stimulating the body’s healing process. Blood flow is increased to the area and the formation of new collagen and elastin is developed, resulting in stronger, healthier skin with reduced lines and wrinkles, acne marks, and other blemishes.

The SkinPen® Difference

There are many microneedling devices on the market from rollers to smaller at-home devices, but only the SkinPen has been approved by the FDA. A number of risks have been uncovered involving the use of non-FDA-approved devices. Because the needles of the device are penetrating the skin, it is and should be considered a class II medical device. The SkinPen is the only device that has been verified as using sterile, straight needles, with precise depth control. Other non-approved devices have shown to have hooked or jagged needles, making them less effective.

SkinPen® Microneedling Benefits 

If you want to experience the benefits of microneedling without the fear of an ineffective or even dangerous device, be sure to choose a dermatologist that offers the SkinPen. If you are in the Bellevue, WA area, you contact Advanced Skin and Body Solutions for your microneedling treatment with the FDA-approved SkinPen.
