At Sieveking Plastic Surgery in Nashville, TN, we offer two different microneedling devices to give our patients the best results for their skin type and concerns, the SkinPen and Collagen PIN. Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique to induce skin rejuvenation, and improve fine lines and wrinkles. It provides laser results without the downtime.
BENEFITS OF THE SKINPEN MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT
SkinPen delivers thousands of micro-injuries to initiate the body’s wound healing process. The body begins to break down damaged tissue and produce healthy new cells. These cells repair and remodel the injured tissue, producing organized, healthy dermal tissue such as collagen and elastin. Optimal microneedling outcomes require proper cell nutrition during the 28 day remodeling process. The Skinfuse post-microneedling topical protocol delivers topical nutrients essential to the results, in a concise, easy to use daily regimen. SkinPen is safe for all skin types, and has little to no downtime.
BENEFITS OF THE COLLAGEN PIN MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT
The Collagen PIN™ works similarly to the SkinPen but has a higher speed setting that works great for thicker scar tissue. The Collagen PIN helps stimulates the skins process to restore a more youthful structure, improving its appearance and texture. Collagen PIN™ micro needling can also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and stretch marks. This treatment can be done anywhere on the body on any skin type.
MICRO NEEDLING VS. OTHER TREATMENTS
One major advantage that micro needling has over other rejuvenation techniques is the ability to be applied to areas that are difficult to treat with peels or lasers, such as near the eyes and mouth, or hands. Individuals interested in avoiding the chemicals used in peels may find that micro needling is a safe, effective alternative. Individuals with darker skin hues are at higher risk of experiencing burns and scarring from laser treatments, can benefit from using micro needling as an alternative resurfacing procedure. The downtime from micro needling is minimal to zero, so patients interested in avoiding the peeling and redness commonly associated with other resurfacing techniques may prefer micro needling. Depending on the skin concern being treated several treatments are required to achieve desired results 4-6 weeks apart.
