Not Just Faces Medical Aesthetics would like to give a little bit more of an in-depth look at our microneedling process, which is a form collagen induction therapy that will leave the skin’s surface more supple and youthful-looking. Essentially, tiny, shallow perforations are precisely made with thin needles, relying on the body’s own healing and disinfecting process in order to treat facial acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Not Just Faces Medical Aesthetics instead utilizes the SkinPen® procedure, which is gaining in popularity and represents a less invasive option in microneedling.
More on SkinPen®
SkinPen® is manufactured by Bellus Medical. It’s a transient, non-surgical, minimally-invasive micro-needling appliance which creates “micro” punctures in the skin in order to improve appearance and reduce scars, wrinkles, and fine lines. SkinPen® is designed to be used by trained medical professionals such as those at Not Just Faces Medical Aesthetics.
SkinPen® inspires your own body’s self skin repair by controlled induction, which works to rejuvenate the skin. SkinPen® can improve the effects of aging and scarring from acne.
Reasons to use SkinPen®
SkinPen® is a fantastic option for those who do not wish to undergo extensive procedures such as ablative lasers. You won’t experience much downtime, if any. People of any skin type or skin color can benefit from SkinPen®, a procedure that can benefit wrinkles, scars, and fine lines when other methods prove ineffective.
SkinPen® is also incredibly versatile, a procedure that is most commonly used on the face, but can also be used on other areas of the body, like the neck and décolleté.
SkinPen® microneedling can be done at Not Just Faces Medical Aesthetics in less than an hour, in most cases just 30 minutes! The procedure can also be done with ease and without discomfort. Your physician will only need to apply a topical anesthetic prior to the procedure, which will allow for a virtually pain-free experience.
Did we mention that there’s very little downtime with SkinPen®. Many people who receive treatment heal completely in 24 hours, but it’s reasonable to expect slight swelling and a certain amount of pinkness or redness for 2-4 days.
Your skin’s healing process is ongoing. You’ll notice results almost immediately. We’ll help you achieve healthier looking skin in three sessions. However, to treat more severe cases, more treatment sessions may be necessary. Your body’s natural healing process will continue to progress over time. You can expect to see your final results 3-6 months after your final session.
Of course number of procedures necessarily to achieve aesthetic enhancement ambitions are going to vary from patient to patient. All of our skin and healing processes differ, in some cases drastically. Most patients will receive a series of 3 treatments which will be spaced about 4 weeks apart. Not Just Faces will work with patients to create a custom-tailored aesthetic enhancement plan, and in home skin care with SkinFusion and creating realistic yet ambitious goals.
Not Just Faces Medical Aesthetics will give you the compassionate and concentrated follow-up care that you need in order to enjoy lasting results. We can recommend which products can help enhance your healing process and bring out the radiant skin hiding underneath.
