Microneedling Pen Treatment in Los Angeles
What is Microneedling?
MicroPen treatment is a new version of Microneedling that has twelve 32- gauge needles that oscillate and vibrate quickly in and out of the skin to stimulate collagen. This treatment is available with the hyaluronic acid moisturizer or with skin lightening treatments or PRP.
We start by applying the hyaluronic acid treatment to the area and we glide the oscillating needles over the skin, overlapping pen strokes so that every area receives treatment. The goal is to get the needles to stimulate collagen, which should be visible by the end of treatment.
The video below shows Dr. Youssef conducting a micropen facial with PRP to stimulate growth factors. Specifically, Emily should see a boost in collagen and renew pore size, finelines, and texture of her skin. The micropen oscillates 12 small needles to push the growth factors from Emily’s blood directly into her skin. It is also premixed with hyaluronic acid gel. This hydrates the skin and stimulates the rejuvenation of the skin. The redness of the skin typically increases during treatment;however, this is a great sign that there is an increase in blood flow during treatment.
Does a Microneedling Facial Work?
Signs of aerothermal treatment and redness of the skin show that the skin has been properly treated. Oxygen and blood rushing to the skin are telling signs that treatment is working properly. After doing one pass over the surface of the skin, we reapply the moisturizer, which soaks into the holes just made by the MicroPen. This allows the moisturizer to soak into the skin allowing for additional absorption of the hydrating properties in the gel.
This treatment is great for patients who want to improve the quality and texture of skin but do not wish to experience the same downtime as other treatment options such as:
- Fractional resurfacing chemical peels
- CO2 resurfacing
MicroPen Treatment with PRP benefits is a great treatment option for patients who are looking for a little glow before attending an event.
