Microneedling is a skin treatment that improves the look and health of aging skin. It triggers the production of collagen and elastin to promote skin tightening and renewal. It also increases the productivity of your serums, moisturizers and other at home products. Microneedling at Forest Hill Medspa is performed using the SkinPen® device that contains a cluster of very fine needles to provide a comfortable treatment experience.
During treatment the SkinPen® device is slowly passed over the surface of the skin. The gentle microneedles penetrate the skin triggering a natural immune response to disinfect, remove debris and increase blood flow and active the creation of new tissue. These tiny wounds trigger a renewal response to promote collagen and elastin production. Layers of fresh healthy skin cells form to heal the area and your skin becomes radiant, healthy, smoother, and younger-looking.
You will notice results from your treatment within the first week, however your final results will be most noticeable after the body has had time to produce optimal collagen and elastin. This usually is seen between 4-6 weeks, at which time your skin will appear younger and healthier. You will start to see a tighter, firmer look with an improvement in scarring and discolorations.
