Questions You Should Ask About SkinPen®

Posted October 28, 2020 in Microneedling

Have you ever wanted to enhance your skin’s natural beauty without the need for surgery or invasive treatments? Men and women looking to correct the signs of aging, skin laxity, and skin irregularities in their face may be surprised to find that SkinPen® microneedling is one of the most effective non-surgical solutions available. 

Here are some questions men and women should consider asking to learn more about the benefits of the SkinPen® treatment

What Is Collagen and How Can SkinPen® Stimulate It? 

Collagen is a protein structure made of amino acids found in connective tissues throughout the body. It is also the protein responsible for maintaining our skin’s strength and elasticity. Therefore, it is an essential property when it comes to our skin’s health. 

Many men and women seeking at-home cosmetic solutions may have already discovered the benefits of collagen through the recent collagen supplement craze. Collagen supplements, known as collagen peptides, claim to transport collagen to areas throughout the body to repair the skin.

However, on closer examination, one of the best ways to stimulate collagen production is by triggering the natural process that produces collagen growth. SkinPen® achieves this natural process by using microneedling as a form of collagen induction therapy.

Is SkinPen® Microneedling Non-Invasive?

While it may be inaccurate to describe SkinPen® microneedling as entirely non-invasive, its techniques are designed to prevent damage to the epidermis. SkinPen® microneedling can be best described as a quick, incision-free, minimally invasive treatment (and a great way to prepare your skin for a holiday party).

Microneedling is the process of creating controlled “micro-injuries” in the skin. On the macro-level, these “injuries” manifest themselves as nothing more than mild redness or irritation. Yet on the micro-level, they induce a complex healing process responsible for smoothing the skin’s texture, normalizing its tone, and rejuvenating its overall health.
