Microneedling with SkinPen® Precision

skinpen precisionIf you are serious about anti-aging procedures that will reduce signs of anti-aging, then the microneedling procedure is a must have procedure for you. Microneedling is a new aesthetic treatment that encourages your skin to revitalize and renew itself naturally. Dr. Peter Abromson and his medical aesthetician, Lina, have selected this particular device, SkinPen® Precision,  as being the best microneedling device on the market with the best overall results.

Microneedling is sometimes refereed to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that is FDA approved for the treatment of aging and/or damaged skin. Microneedling produces microscopic channels in the dermis to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing mechanisms and stimulate the production of collagen, which allows for optimal skin cell renewal and produces a thickening of the skin by up to 80 percent, which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation (skin darkening).

Microneedling is ideally suited for patients who wish to revitalize and refresh the appearance of their skin but are not quite ready for harsh, ablative therapies, laser skin resurfacing, or cosmetic surgery. This gentle anti-aging therapy boosts collagen production to facilitate natural skin renewal while simultaneously resurfacing the skin to minimize the appearance of sun spots and other visible signs of facial aging. Although there are numerous microneedling products on the market, Dr. Peter Abramson is pleased to offer microneedling treatments with the SkinPen®, as this particular product has a proven track record of consistently producing exceptional, long-lasting results.

How Many Microneedling Treatments Will You Need?

With the very first treatment you will notice a difference in the quality and smoothness of your skin. You will probably experience firmer, tighter skin as new cells begin to stimulate collagen production. Multiple sessions are recommended approximately one month apart and you can have up to 6 within 6 months. Dr. Abramson’s aesthetician can offer advice on how many and how often you should have microneedling. After each session you will notice continued improvement in your skin as it continues to promote the production of healthy new cells.

Post Treatment Recovery

After the microneedling treatment you will experience redness and a tightened feeling. Some crusting may occur. You will be advised to use a gel like solution to keep the areas moistened. You should not apply any makeup on the day of the procedure but may use makeup the following day. You can carry out your activities as usual but will appear sunburned. Redness will fade away in 1 or 2 days. Skin immediately feels tighter and smoother.
