Effects of a Micro Needling Pen
No skin enhancement procedure is permanent. Skin is living, dynamic tissue, always growing and changing. As we age, that process slows and we don’t like some of the changes we see. Life also brings us scars – from acne, injuries, or surgery – or stretch marks. Highly targeted procedures with a micro needling pen can help correct these issues, but if micro needling isn’t permanent, how long will the effects last?
Every person’s skin is a bit different, so there is no precise answer. Everyone’s skin reacts somewhat differently to injury, too. This is important because a micro needling pen creates microscopic injuries in the skin in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. It is the healing process that produces improved-looking skin.
That said, we can make general predictions about the effects of micro needling, based on a wealth of clinical studies and real doctor-patient experiences with the procedure.
Almost Immediate Visible Results
Micro needling is a very effective technique. It can be used anywhere on the face or body. It is particularly effective for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, restoring a more radiant, youthful appearance. It is also highly effective for reducing stretch marks and acne scars. But these skin conditions go deeper. For that reason, it may take longer to see desired results.
Micro needling is not an aggressive procedure. It is a gentler approach designed to provide incremental results. Clinicians recommend that patients receive multiple procedures to achieve desired results. Procedures are usually spaced four to six weeks apart.
Nonetheless, patients usually begin to see the superficial, initial results within a week of their first procedure. Radiant skin is apparent as the deeper skin continues it’s healing process.
Maintaining Lasting Results
The effects of a micro needling pen are not permanent, so clinicians recommend a maintenance program which could include quarterly procedures to keep skin looking it’s best.
Bellus Medical has also developed an entire line of Skinfuse® products specifically formulated to nourish and assist in protecting the skin following micro needling pen procedures. These products proactively assist in the skins natural healing process. Skinfuse® has also been formulated to eliminate the harmful effects that might result from patients using improper skin products.
Longest-Lasting Results Start With A Personal Consultation
Each patient is unique, in terms of age, skin type, and the type and location of the skin condition to be treated. Personal consultation with a well-qualified provider is the only way to know if micro needling pen procedures are the best choice and to determine how many procedures will be needed to produce and retain optimal results.
