Five Reasons SkinPen May Be Right For You
As a versatile, highly effective procedure for kick-starting your body’s own healing process, micro-needling with SkinPen in Fargo, ND is just the ticket for quick facial rejuvenation with little discomfort or downtime. If you’re looking for a treatment that can improve the appearance of wrinkles or scars, brighten skin tone, and heal damaged skin anywhere on the body, this procedure may be right for you.
SkinPen and other micro-needling devices work by using needles to create tiny holes or channels in your skin. While this may sound counter-intuitive when thinking of skin rejuvenation, the result of these tiny injuries is that your body kicks in to overdrive to heal the wound with collagen and elastin. This means that rather than having a chemical or heat energy doing the stimulation, it’s a physical, natural response that drives restoration.
People looking for wrinkle reduction may be asking for professional-grade products or expensive laser treatments to help them turn back the clock, but can actually benefit just as well from a micro-needling treatment. SkinPen is effective at:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Eliminating stretch marks
- Reducing acne scars
- Treat the appearance of sun damage
This adjustable device can be used anywhere on the body you have a problem, making it a great way to address many areas of concern at once.
Lasers and some chemical treatments aren’t recommended for use on people of darker skin tone or with sensitive skin due to the risks of side effects or ineffectiveness. In contrast, SkinPen doesn’t affect the epidermis, where skin pigment is stored, meaning it is effective for all skin types.
Plus, micro-needling literally opens the skin to receive rejuvenating products deeper than they could go prior to treatment, meaning Dr. Ness may be able to combine this treatment with specific, personalized serums and formulas to provide additional, dramatic benefits.
Not everyone is instantly comfortable with the notion of tiny needles pricking their skin, no matter how impressive the results are. It helps to know that SkinPen is precisely calibrated to penetrate a safe, controlled depth to avoid the risk of injury. In addition, Dr. Ness has been performing SkinPen procedures for years, and has the experience and training to use this device in a comfortable and safe way. Your skin will appear red and sensitive, like a sunburn, for a day or two after treatment, which will require special protection to avoid sun damage and other irritation.
Compared to the expense of most laser therapies and other treatments like chemical peels, SkinPen is a better choice for people in Fargo, North Dakota who are looking to keep costs low. Plus, Fargo Dermatology has financing plans to help make this investment in your skin health and appearance affordable for anyone.
