Five Benefits of SkinPen® Treatment
Microneedling treatments are a great way to get rid of problem spots like scars and fine lines, as well as simply tighten up the face for a fresh appearance. At Fargo Center for Dermatology, we use SkinPen technology to help our patients get a look they love with zero downtime. The first-ever FDA-cleared device for microneedling, SkinPen gives proven, dramatic, and risk-free results for patients looking for facial rejuvenation. Here are five more reasons you should consider SkinPen for your next facial treatment.
Rather than relying on chemicals or laser light energy, SkinPen creates tiny holes in the skin that penetrate a precise distance to stimulate the layer of skin responsible for collagen production. Your body then heals the treated area over the next few weeks, creating a firmer appearance and the clearing up of scarring, pigmentation, or wrinkles.
Unlike other treatments that focus exclusively on facial skin, SkinPen is versatile and can be used anywhere on the body. Primarily, people seek SkinPen for a natural way to treat stretch marks on the stomach or thighs. SkinPen can also be used on the back, hands, and neck to treat a variety of conditions you may be concerned about.
If you’ve been thinking about aesthetic procedures to help correct multiple problem areas, but don’t want to hassle with several different procedures, SkinPen may be right for you. Even the most versatile laser treatments have their limits, which is where SkinPen can make a difference in your treatment plan. Dr. Ness and team recommend SkinPen for:
- Wrinkle reduction
- Enlarged pores
- Age spots
- Uneven skin tone
People with dark skin can now experience the benefits of facial rejuvenation without the risk of pigmentation or other side effects. The rejuvenating effects of microneedling do not rely on bleaching or deep penetration to where skin pigment resides, making it safe and effective for all skin types.
Although the thought of needles puncturing your skin may be off-putting, keep in mind that this procedure is comfortable and very well tolerated by our patients. In fact, by using SkinPen, there is little risk of negative side effects, and we’ll apply a numbing cream before treatment to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during the treatment. The only downtime you may need is for slight redness and sensitivity that can occur after SkinPen treatments in Fargo, ND.
