Many people want to ensure that their skin looks as fresh and youthful as possible. One way that people find effective in achieving this is by getting a treatment with a MicroPen in Tucson. A micropen treatment, which is also known as microneedling, is a type of collagen induction therapy. Collagen induction therapy encourages skin to produce more collagen, which plays an essential part in skin looking plump and youthful.
Collagen induction therapy uses a MicroPen in Tucson, which is a small instrument that contains many tiny needles. Some of them come in roller varieties where the instrument is rolled across the skin, while others deliver tiny vibrations to push the needles into the skin in a specific area. The needles penetrate the mid layer of the skin and leave microscopic channels. These “micro wounds” stimulate the skin to produce collagen to fill in the channels and improve the quality of the skin in that area. This can be effective in reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
You can get microneedling treatments at some salons, cosmetic surgery offices, or dermatologists. Micropen needles range from .25 mm to 3 mm long, depending on the area of skin they’re used on and the results you’re trying to achieve. They can be purchased and used privately, but this can risk infection or other problems if used incorrectly. At a salon or anywhere else that offers treatments with a MicroPen in Tucson, a trained professional will administer treatments in the office. Sometimes a local anesthetic may be applied to the skin before treatment begins to avoid any discomfort from longer needles.
Treatments may leave the skin red, swollen, and a little sore for several hours to a few days. Most people will need between one and three treatments to get the full effect they’re looking for. Results typically last for about a year before another treatment is needed. Treatments can cost between $100 and $500 depending on the provider you go to. Microneedling treatment achieves a similar effect as laser treatments and chemical peels, but without as much irritation as other methods.
