SkinPen Precision Micro-Needling Treatments in Dallas
While so many med spas and doctors offices are jumping on the bandwagon and bringing the SkinPen into their practices, it is LUXURY ON LOVERS that WFAA chose to film their segment about the SkinPen. There's a reason for this.
We have been performing micro-needling in our practice for the past 7 years. The SkinPen is simply superior technology applied to this same procedure. We know how it works, and why it works, because we have been doing it for a very long time.
Our philosophy has always been to do everything possible to strengthen and protect our body's largest organ, the skin. As we age, our fibroblast activity slows down and our dermal barrier becomes increasingly compromised. The SkinPen, and many of our other treatments, are designed to help build, nurture, and protect the skin.
What is the SkinPen micro-needling and how does it work?
The SkinPen is a state of the art precision tool designed to stimulate your skin's natural ability to produce new collagen. New collagen production can reverse years of sun damage, address fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone, texture, acne scars, hyper-pigmenation, stretch marks, as well as enhance the overall appearance of the skin.
Who is a candidate?
The SkinPen treatment uses non-thermal, fractionated technology to approach skin rejuvenation. Unlike energy-based procedures that use chromophones or heat, SkinPen uses sterile, disposable needle cartridges that deliver multi-speed and adjustable depths to allow for increased effectiveness for your unique skin needs. This allows SkinPen to be used for a wider range of patient types, including patients with darker skin types.
What is the downtime?
Immediately following the procedure you will notice a healthy pink glow. We will recommend products to accelerate you skin's natural healing process. Some heal completely in 24 hours, others are pink for a couple of days. There will be some gentle sloughing of top layer of skin at day 3 or 4 post treatment. There is virtually no social downtime as make-up can be applied to conceal any redness.
How many treatments will I need?
Patients with uneven skin-tone and fine lines may see a result after just one treatment, while those looking to soften the appearance of acne scarring may require several treatments. For most, a series of 2-3 treatments are recommended 4-5 weeks apart, for those with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, acne scars, or stretch marks, a series of 6-8 treatments every 6 weeks is recommended.
