If you’ve noticed that your skin is looking tired and dull lately, you might be searching for a comprehensive rejuvenation treatment. Fortunately, there are dozens of cosmetic treatments that fit the bill. At YourSkinRN in Kitchener, Ontario we recommend reliable treatments that are compatible with all skin types, such as MD Pen microneedling.
What Is MD Pen Microneedling?
The MD Pen is a handheld microneedling device that is capable of completely rejuvenating your appearance by harnessing the power of your body’s own healing capabilities. As a versatile minimally invasive treatment, MD Pen is a treatment used by patients who want to correct multiple age-related skin concerns at once, including:
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Dark spots
- Sun damage
How Does MD Pen Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is a type of skin rejuvenation method widely used across the world. Microneedling is based on the principle that if there are small injuries to the skin, the skin’s natural regenerative abilities will kick in, meaning that collagen, elastin, and other skin-healing properties will be stimulated to restore a more youthful appearance.
In our youth, our bodies produce plenty of collagen and elastin to keep our skin strong, supple, hydrated, and flexible. Starting in our late 20s, our bodies start ramping down production of these agents by approximately 1% a year. This causes many of the aging issues we see in our faces, but microneedling can stimulate production to more youthful levels to address these aging changes.
Microneedling with MD Pen works by using a pen-like device topped with tiny sterile needles that pierce the skin to create micro-injuries and stimulate the body’s natural regenerative abilities. After the skin is treated with microneedling, we apply a layer of hyaluronic acid and a Vitamin C complex to pamper and rejuvenate the skin. However, MD Pen is also a unique treatment because it can be tailored to your specific needs. In particular, patients have a choice of combining MD Pen with other popular treatments, such as PRP or dermal injectables.
How Long Do Results Last?
Patients can see results from MD Pen treatment as soon as five to seven days after treatment. The results of this treatment can be enjoyed for three to five months at a time. Your results will depend on your unique physiology as well as how well you care for your skin. By following a good skincare regimen and protecting your skin from the sun, you can enjoy the best results for longer. Most patients schedule regular treatment appointments about twice a year to maintain results.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for this treatment include patients of all skin types and skin tones. You might be a good candidate for this treatment if you want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and improve your overall appearance.
