Microneedling

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. This minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective.The micro-injuries you create stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging.

The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin. Some doctors would even go so far as to say that the procedure is the most powerful way to stop aging in its tracks and prevent new fine lines and wrinkles from forming. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of microneedling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead.

Oasis Med Spa evaluated several alternative microneedling devices and have long chosen SkinPen® as the clearly superior choice among microneedling options. Having performed nearly a thousand SkinPen® procedures, our staff is highly skilled at providing the perfect procedure for you needs.

 

SkinPen® reduces fine and deep wrinkles

The SkinPen microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin, which can contract to create a tightening or “shrink wrap” effect on the skin, thereby reducing fine and deep wrinkles.

SkinPen® repairs visible scars

Before and After
In a 2009 study on the effects of microneedling, nearly 100 percent of acne-scarred participants reported a marked improvement in the visibility of their acne scars. In case you’re wondering how microneedling compares to fractional laser treatments when it comes to resolving acne scars, a head-to-head comparison published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery in 2016, found both treatments to be comparable and effective, but gave credit to microneedling for being better tolerated, with fewer side effects and less downtime.

 

SkinPen® reverses sun damage and pigmentation

By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma. A 2015 study showed microneedling to be a promising treatment for the blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation that comes with this chronic condition.

A 2015 study in the International Journal of Dermatology confirms that microneedling is a new way to achieve “skin rejuvenation, tightening, and scar remodeling,” and that it offers a “simple and effective treatment for photo aged skin” with minimal side effects and downtime.

 

SkinPen® makes your products work better

One of microneedling’s additional appeals is that it improves product absorption tremendously.Studies confirm that the treatment can actually help topical medications penetrate skin more efficiently, allowing you to reap the full benefits of any product.

SkinPen® shrinks pores

Microneedling stimulates collagen in and around your pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, if not closed.
