At Glowtox in NYC, NY, we strongly believe that no woman should ever reveal her true age unless she wants to. That is why we are proud to offer the most cutting-edge aesthetic services. We also believe no man should feel self-conscious about the quality of his skin. Today, we reveal everything you need to know about SkinPen Microneedling.
SkinPen Microneedling is unique. It refers to a microneedling treatment performed with the SkinPen device. What makes this so special is that the SkinPen is the only FDA-approved device for cellular turnover and collagen regeneration. This is important because there are several microneedling device manufacturers that claim you can treat yourself at home.
Unfortunately, at-home dermal rollers have needles so thick that they hurt. Moreover, you can’t adjust the depth at which the needles penetrate your skin. You also can’t use a prescription-strength anesthetic to make the treatment comfortable. Finally, you are at risk of infection when you give yourself a microneedling treatment at home. The bottom line is that this is not a DIY treatment.
Benefits of Microneedling
Because SkinPen Microneedling promotes cellular turnover and collagen regeneration, treatment with the SkinPen device can correct just about any skin problem you can imagine. It is most commonly used to correct texture issues, such as fine lines, moderate wrinkles and deep folds. This is because collagen adds volume to the foundation of your skin.
However, it can also be used to erase stretch marks, loose skin, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, age spots, and sunspots. Some of these are derived from collagen induction. Others can be attributed to cellular turnover. They are all results you can realistically expect after two to six treatment sessions.
Areas That Can Be Treated
Virtually any part of your body can receive microneedling treatment with the SkinPen device. For lines, wrinkles, and folds, it is most often performed on the face, chest, and hands. To erase acne scars, it is often used on the back. To correct stretch marks, it is most frequently used on the inner and outer thighs and lower abdomen.
What to Expect During Treatment
Before treatment, we will cleanse the treatment area with alcohol. If you’d like, we are more than happy to apply a topical anesthetic to numb the region, especially if you are receiving treatment to areas with sensitive skin.
However, the gauge of the needles is so fine that most people don’t need an anesthetic. The treatment feels like sandpaper being rubbed gently across the treatment area.
