3 Skin-Enhancing Benefits of Microneedling

At the end of the day, a large portion of the cosmetic treatments that are available today have one goal in mind: to increase collagen levels in your skin. Because collagen is the protein that keeps your skin smooth and youthful-looking, it plays a critical role in your overall appearance. 

The good news is that your body can make more collagen on its own, provided it’s given the proper stimulus. And microneedling with the SkinPen does just that. With this minimally invasive treatment, Elaine Phuah, DO, MBA, FACOI, and our team at Hanami Medspa help people throughout Fort Worth, Texas, move closer to their skin goals.

Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits you can expect with microneedling.

Younger-looking skin

As we mentioned before, microneedling works by stimulating your skin’s collagen production processes. Dr. Phuah achieves this by using the SkinPen to create tiny pinpricks in your skin’s surface — don’t worry, we use a numbing agent to ensure you’re completely comfortable during treatment. Your skin reads those little pricks as an injury and kicks off its healing and rejuvenation processes, creating collagen as it does.

This helps to reverse the clock. As we get older, our skin produces less and less collagen. With the SkinPen, Dr. Phuah can help to reverse that collagen loss and give you a more youthful appearance. In fact, this treatment can even help to clear away fine lines, giving you some extra years before you need to explore more involved anti-aging treatments. 

Smoother texture

The SkinPen can help to shrink large pores and give you an overall more consistent skin texture. As your skin makes new collagen, it also makes new skin tissue. It replaces your older, rougher skin with this newer, smoother tissue, helping to give you a baby-soft complexion. 

Reduction in scars

Whether you have facial scarring from acne or an injury, the odds are high that you wish you could get rid of it. With repeat microneedling sessions, Dr. Phuah can help to reduce the appearance of your scar or scars.

That’s because the new collagen that the SkinPen stimulates can help to fill in the depressed areas that make your scars most noticeable. In fact, some people see their scars fully disappear with a strategic number of microneedling sessions. 

Add platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) for maximal results

To help you get even more dramatic skin improvement from microneedling, Dr. Phuah can integrate PRF into your SkinPen treatment. This delivers a concentrated amount of your own white blood cells, fibrin, growth factors, and stem cells to your skin, to help support a faster, more noticeable transformation.
