SkinPen Microneedling

Once people grow old, the quality of their skin starts to deteriorate slowly. Elder people face issues like dry skin, dull skin, uneven skin tone, etc. However, not everyone faces these issues at the same stage in their lives. Many people deal with these problems quite early and appear older than their actual age.

As a result, they feel self-conscious and underconfident. The aging of the skin at an early age can occur to people due to various choices made in their youth like smoking or drinking too much alcohol. This does not mean you will have to suffer the consequences forever. Beauty from Ashes Aesthetics, located in Brandon just a few minutes from downtown Tampa, can offer the perfect solution to your problem.

By offering you safe and effective SkinPen microneedling treatment, the experts at Beauty from Ashes Aesthetics can help you tackle all your skin problems.

Micro-needling is a method used by experts for treating many skin conditions. In this technique, your doctor will use a SkinPend device that has multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin. This will result in physical trauma and trigger a deeper layer of skin to rebuild known as the derma. If you are not sure about opting for the FDA-approved SkinPen micro-needling treatment, here are a few benefits that will convince you:

SkinPen micro-needling can treat various skin conditions

There are many different cosmetic treatments. Most treatments focus mainly on treating just one skin condition. However, it is not the same with SkinPen microneedling. One of the biggest benefits of this treatment is that it can help to treat multiple skin conditions. This is because SkinPen microneedling increases the production of collagen, a protein your skin requires for healing. Our expert aestheticians use this treatment for treating:

  • Scars caused due to acne
  • Trauma scars
  • Scars due to surgeries
  • Dark spots
  • Rough skin or Dry skin
  • Dull skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles, and
  • Enlarged pores

Proven to be an effective and reliable treatment

The SkinPen micro-needling treatment is also preferred by many experts because it is a reliable procedure. It has received approval from the FDA. Hence, the treatment underwent several rigorous and independent clinical trials that prove its effectiveness. In those trials, it was found that the treatment increases the production of collagen. As a result, the skin heals faster as well as appears healthier and younger.

SkinPen microneedling is safe procedure

Before opting for any cosmetic treatment, you should ensure that undergoing the treatment is completely safe. Going through any procedure that has not received FDA approval is not usually recommended. This is because the treatment procedure might not have undergone sufficient independent trials that ensure safety. Since the SkinPen micro-needling treatment has been approved by FDA, the treatment is perfectly safe for almost everyone irrespective of their skin type, tone, or texture. Moreover, this is one of the very few FDA-approved treatments available for treating rosacea.

In some cases, this treatment might not be recommended. If you are pregnant or a new mother and still breastfeeding, you should not opt for this treatment. Moreover, people with any type of skin irritation such as sunburn in the treatment area should opt to reschedule their appointments. Once the skin irritation is completely gone, you should then go back for the treatment.

It does not cause pain or discomfort

Many people often get anxious after hearing that it is a needle treatment and can cause pain. Contrary to that, the treatment does not cause pain or discomfort during the session. Even though needles will be used to puncture the skin, you will not feel anything at the time of the treatment. This is because the needles used in this procedure are very fine. However, experts will apply a topical numbing cream to the skin before puncturing the skin with the needles. As a result, the area that is being treated will stay numb during the procedure.

The procedure is a fairly quick process

All micro-needling treatments do not take the same amount of time. The overall time strictly depends on the size of the treatment area and the severity of the condition. However, most micro-needling procedures take around 20 to 40 minutes to complete. If a mild condition is being treated, the session will not last longer than 20 minutes. These can include concerns like clogged or enlarged pores. On the other hand, treating severe conditions like stretch marks or deep acne scars take longer. They consume more time because the device has to be passed over the area repeatedly.

A completely non-invasive procedure

Many people prefer this procedure because it is a completely non-invasive procedure. Recovery is fast and requires very little aftercare. You just have to ensure that you always apply good-quality sunscreen before going out and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. Also, eating a nutritious meal and drinking plenty of water are essential to your overall skin health. On the other hand, consumption of alcohol and tobacco work against your skin. If you apply makeup, only use cosmetics that are gentle on your skin.

Preparing for the SkinPen Micro-needling Treatment

As mentioned earlier, the SkinPen micro-needling treatment is a non-invasive process. You do not have to take a lot of preparations before your session. Just remember that you cannot opt for the treatment if you are experiencing skin irritation in the treatment area. Try to avoid skin irritation before the session by taking the necessary steps. Otherwise, you will have to reschedule your session. You can reduce the chances of skin irritation by always applying good-quality sunscreen. Also, it is a good idea to keep yourself hydrated before the treatment. Consumption of alcohol should be stopped 24 hours before the procedure.
