What is the MicroPen?
Beauty Expert Donna Fay shares her expertise with one of the best anti-aging treatments available.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling is something relatively new in the field of aesthetic medicine. It’s used for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and the overall improvement of your skin’s appearance.
During the procedure, tiny needles are used to create a controlled reaction to the skin that allows it to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in an improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. It also creates superficial micro-channels, which can be used with topical creams, serums, and gels to help improve the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin.
How is the MicroPen different from dermal needling rollers?
The MicroPen is an automated micro-needling device that moves in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin, unlike an automated micro-needling roller, which does not offer the same amount of precision.
How is the MicroPen different from a laser treatment?
The MicroPen breaks up pigment mechanically and stimulates the collagen formation without heat. By removing heat from the equation the MicroPen offers a safer, more comfortable treatment with a very low complication rate. No heat also offers no downtime. Most patients will show some redness for about 24 hours.
How is a MicroPen treatment done?
A sterile needle tip containing 12 micro-needles is attached to the MicroPen. Our resident Beauty Expert Donna Fay then applies a thin layer of a topical gel to your skin and proceeds to select the appropriate treatment setting based on your needs. The next step is done in a single motion. The MicroPen is gently pressed against your skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered. This results in thousands of superficial microscopic channels.
