It’s not uncommon for people to be insecure about qualities of their skin—whether it’s texture, tone or imperfections such as acne or sun spots. The good news is, there are several skin rejuvenation treatments available to help patients feel better about their appearance. Our specialists are here to share one of the most unique methods of skin rejuvenation—microneedling!
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive rejuvenation treatment that works to eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation and stretch marks while improving your skin’s texture. The treatment works by using tiny, fine needles to pierce the skin, making hundreds of microscopic channels into the dermis.
At Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care, we trust SkinPen for our microneedling treatments!
How Does SkinPen Improve My Appearance?
Once microscopic channels have been created in the dermis, your skin naturally goes into “repair mode,” generating more collagen and elastin to treat signs of aging and improve the appearance of your skin. While the treatment sounds simple (and it is), there are specific post-procedure steps you need to follow to avoid infection or harming your skin. But don’t worry—your Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care specialist will walk you through the details.
Microneedling Treatments in Palo Alto
Altogether, microneedling is a great choice for patients who want to address imperfections in a short amount of time—as each treatment lasts around 30 minutes to an hour and there is little to no downtime. It is normal for your skin to appear pink after a procedure and feel like mild sunburn, but skin care products are provided to help calm the treated skin. Your specialist may develop a treatment plan that consists of more than one treatment, so keep in mind that your desired results may not be visible after the first session.
Consultations at Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care are always free, so if microneedling is a treatment you’re interested in, contact us at 650.565.8683 today! Plus, be sure to check out our specials page for offers on our services.
