What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe method to tighten loose skin, smooth wrinkles, and reduce imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation and acne scars. The procedure uses a specialized tool, such as a derma roller or a pen, that pricks tiny holes into the skin’s surface.
Your body’s immune system sends signals throughout, telling other parts of the body to start healing the pinpricks caused by microneedling. Part of the skin’s repair process includes an increase in collagen production. Collagen is a natural protein that promotes elasticity. As we grow older, collagen production decreases and slows which is why older people have more fine lines and wrinkles.
Because microneedling causes an increase in collagen production, you’ll see fine lines and wrinkles smooth and your skin tighten, resulting in a younger appearance.
The Fountain Laser Center’s Atlanta location uses the Rejuvapen microneedling system, which performs better than the traditional derma rollers in both results and patient experience. It is more precise and can easily target areas the derma rollers tend to miss.
