Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a great treatment because it can reverse melasma, which can be caused by sun exposure or natural hormonal changes. Our FDA-approved treatment uses fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes. As a result, the skin experiences increases in skin cell turnover, collagen production, and elastin production. Therefore, with microneedling Jacksonville clients at Modern Aesthetic Centers Gate Parkway can work to reverse and prevent signs of aging.
The SkinPen microneedling device is extremely versatile. SkinPen is effective for all parts of the body including the face, neck, decolletage, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back. Tone and texture is improved leaving the skin more youthful and refreshed.
The needle length depth of the device is adjusted for the specific area of concern. For best results, a series of 3 treatments spaced every 4-6 weeks apart is recommended. Acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks may need additional treatments.
Each treatment session is 30 – 60 minutes. The skin will appear pink to red post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Normal activities can be resumed the following day. It is recommended to wear sunscreen protection immediately after and throughout treatments.
SkinPen treats both old and new acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. With the tools and techniques of Microneedling Jacksonville skin care experts at MAC Gate Parkway create hundreds of microscopic channels in the epidermis and dermis. These controlled micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue and keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
SkinPen is also beneficial for a skin condition known as melasma. Melasma is a condition in which brown patches appear on the face. Women are much more likely than men to develop this condition. Melasma can be due to hormonal changes or from sun exposure. Laser treatments use heat. In contrast, microneedling does not create heat in the skin reducing potential side effects.
SKinPen’s anti-aging treatments reduce pore size, lines and wrinkles, and increase collagen produce to keep skin looking youthful. For best results, microneedling should be combined with an effective at home skin care regimen that both prevents and corrects. Modern Aesthetic Centers Gate Parkway recommends ZO Skin Health to optimize microneedling results.
