July 28, 2023SkinPen

Recent studies report that the average American spends anywhere from $300 to $700 on their skin, meaning, in the average lifetime, an American may spend up to $30,000 on skincare alone! Acne, acne scars, discoloration, wrinkles, black spots, skin tags, if there’s something on your skin you want to be addressed, chances are there is an ointment, cream, mask, or even, for the most desperate, a potion out there claiming to help. But, from experience, you know this might not be the case. At best, they leave your skin without any damage. At worst, you may need more than a magical potion, you may need prayer. When it comes to keeping skin taut and youthful in appearance, the secret is to keep up your body’s production of collagen, the structural protein in charge of aiding with skin’s elasticity. If you’re wondering how to stimulate collagen while utilizing a scientifically proven method of helping your skin, keep reading to learn more about SkinPen® microneedling

What Is Microneedling And How Does It Help? 

Microneedling is a well-researched technique of utilizing thin, tiny needles to create minuscule holes in the top layer of your skin, hoping to create microdamage. This damage stimulates your own body’s response to injury by upregulating, or increasing, the healing process. This way, collagen is produced at a greater quantity, keeping your skin firm and smooth. Though some report discomfort, reddening, and slight pain can be expected. Microneedling has been shown to help with: 

  • The appearance of pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose skin 
  • Scarring
  • Stretch marks 
  • Discoloration 
  • And more

To learn more about how microneedling can help with your skin needs, make sure to speak to a trained professional and practitioner.
