The surprising ways Dermapen Microneedling works
- A visible reduction in large pores
- Smoothing wrinkles and filling deep lines
- Improving depressed acne scarring
- Improving the appearance of stretch marks
- Thicker skin for more elasticity
- Reduction in cellulite
Microneedling is preferable over laser and chemical peels in many patients because it is safe for use in all skin types, all parts of the body (including stretch marks on the abdomen). In addition, the downtime with Microneedling is quite short, with transient redness usually lasting less than a day (as compared to one week or more with peels or laser). Mild swelling is usually seen for about three days. I will provide you with a special serum to apply for the first few days, but you can resume using regular skincare products by the third day following treatment.
Microneedling is also a great technique for those who are concerned with their complexions but are reluctant to try Botox or fillers. Because it is mechanical and doesn't involve any chemicals or neurotoxins, the technique is reassuring to many. While some patients should notice improvements in just a few days, others may not see any results for up to several weeks, depending on their skin type and the epidermis condition that needs to be corrected.
