Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy. Small skin pricks stimulate the skin healing mechanisms, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. Microneedling can treat a variety of skin conditions including large pores, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots or areas of pigmentation.
At Jonaleé Pain and Aesthetics, we use SkinPen for our microneedling treatment in Southlake, TX. SkinPen is an FDA-approved device that has been shown to be safe and effective. For best results, it is recommended to have 3-5 treatments, spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.
When you present for treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to minimize discomfort associated with microneedling. Microneedling is usually well tolerated.
