Microneedling in South Lake Tahoe, CA
What is Microneedling?
The Skin Pen is the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device. Microneedling is a great treatment for skin resurfacing as well as a leading treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, reducing pore size, and filling in acne scars. The SkinPen treatment works in three simple steps which activate the skin’s natural healing processes:
Inflammation: hundreds to thousands of tiny needle punctuations occur every second creating a controlled inflammatory response for wound repair, removing debris, increasing blood flow, and creating new tissue.
Proliferation: the micro-wounds created are rebuilt with new granulation cells that include collagen proteins. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Remodeling: The micro-wounds are replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels which are comprised or rich collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins improve skin youthfulness.
