Over time skin collagen levels dramatically decrease and can leave us with a variety of unwanted concerns. Collagen is one of the substances responsible for toned, firm, and younger-looking skin. The aging process results in the body producing less and less collagen over time.
Luckily, there are ways to stimulate and increases collagen production, reducing the signs of aging and restoring skin to its youthful self. One of the most effective ways to improve collagen production is through microneedling at Capital Laser & Skin Care.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for stimulating collagen production. During the process, a small hand-held device is used on the area in question. The small device creates micro-injuries to the superficial layers of skin.
The body’s natural self-healing response is triggered by the micro-injuries. This results in more collagen production at the target site, which eventually will lead to fewer wrinkles and fine lines and younger-looking skin overall.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we’ve gone above and beyond to create a microneedling procedure like no other. We used customized solutions over top of the microneedling to stimulate the most collagen possible.
How Does SkinPen Work?
Apart from stimulating collagen production through micro-injuries, there are other ways in which the SkinPen works its magic. SkinPen builds the outer layers of the skin, making the skin look smoother and healthier.
It also promotes the release of proteins that stimulate cell movement to inflammation sites, in this case being the micro-injuries. SkinPen is all about promoting the production and release of substances that are responsible for young and healthy-looking skin.
What Are The Benefits Of SkinPen?
There are many reasons why SkinPen should be considered over other types of microneedling. SkinPen is an FDA-approved device that uses disposable cartridges, making it more hygienic. It’s also been adapted for use on all skin types.
Another benefit of SkinPen is that it is a quick and simple procedure that treats the unwanted effects of aging. Patients who are considering SkinPen for the treatment of acne scarring will also be pleased as acne scarring can be improved noticeably with this procedure.
Is SkinPen Right For Me?
Patients who choose SkinPen at Capital Laser & Skin Care often do so because they want to improve signs of aging, acne scarring, and sun damage. The best way to determine if SkinPen is the option for you is through an in-person consultation with one of our skilled dermatologists.
