Every new cosmetic enhancement procedure that comes along receives a certain amount of media attention. It’s part of the marketing process. But it seems as if everyone is talking about microneedling — no doubt because this procedure has rapidly become a favorite among clinicians and patients alike. So, why are microneedling procedures so popular?
Articles about advancements in microneedling have appeared in several national as well as regional publications. The Kansas City Star recently interviewed both clinicians and patients. They quote aesthetician Sharon Wahrman, who uses the SkinPen® II microneedling device. She says, “It’s a great treatment; it just targets so many areas, which is what makes it so popular.”
The Star also quotes one of Wahrman’s patients. “Julie (not her real name) has undergone noninvasive cosmetic procedures including Botox, chemical peels, and at least one laser treatment in recent years. But this — called microneedling — is the latest.” After all those attempts at skin rejuvenation, Julie says, “I saw a bigger change in my skin with one microneedling than all those other treatments.”
There are more reasons to love microneedling procedures
- To target very small or large areas, anywhere on the body
- To minimize appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks
- It is appropriate for anyone in their late teens or older
- It is safe and effective for all skin colors and types (many other treatments are not suitable for all skin types)
- Procedure appointments are short and virtually painless, with virtually no downtime
Bloggers are talking, too
Bellatory.com is a website created by “lovers of fashion, skin, hair, and all things stylish.” One of the site’s bloggers wrote a detailed review of her experience with SkinPen® microneedling procedures.
“I was very pleased to find it was not painful,” she reports, “not even a prick or pinch! I could slightly feel the vibrations of the pen on my skin, but no discomfort at all.” And she says she saw results — a “significant change” in fine lines and wrinkles on her forehead and smaller pores on her nose — after just a week. Plus, her skin felt smoother than it had felt in years.
But these results were a bonus. “I initially was recommended to have the SkinPen® treatment to help treat old acne marks and scarring along my temples. I am also pleased to report that I can see a noticeable difference in the acne marks after just one treatment!”
She concludes, “I would definitely recommend the SkinPen® to friends and family. While it is an investment, the results are long lasting and can definitely boost your confidence in your appearance.”
