WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING
Microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment that penetrates your skin’s surface with tiny needles to improve its appearance. It may sound a little medieval, but most skin rejuvenation treatments, whether laser or a chemical peel, manipulate a wound-healing response to create a structural and cosmetic benefit. The procedure can help smooth lines and wrinkles, even skin tone (including stubborn melasma), refine enlarged pores, tighten skin, and fade scars and stretch marks.
WHAT IS SKINPEN?
SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device in the world, clinically proven to safely and effectively fighting the appearance of neck wrinkles and facial acne scars. With as few as three noninvasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment - and step out with confidence.
HOW DOES SKIN WORK?
SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of "micro" skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin's natural wound healing process - inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling - to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. It’s a form of fractional treatment, which means only a fraction of the skin’s surface is affected. This means that recovery time is relatively short.
Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
MICRONEEDLING VS RF MICRONEEDLING.
Yes, RF microneedling produces more dramatic results than traditional microneedling treatments because combining the two technologies boosts their effectiveness. Microneedles allow precise delivery of radiofrequency energy into the dermis, where collagen-producing cells reside, and the radiofrequency energy increases the level of controlled damage the microneedles inflict. However, not all skin types are suited for RF microneedling.
