Your skin might look dull, wrinkled, scarred, or covered with acne, but microneedling can give it the boost it needs. SkinPen® is an advanced microneedling treatment available from Dr. Patrick Keehan at Keehan Dermatology in Fort Worth, Texas. To find out more about how you can improve your skin with SkinPen microneedling, call Keehan Dermatology or book an appointment online today.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that revives and enhances the quality of your skin. During the procedure, fine needles make tiny puncture holes in your skin.
Your body treats these tiny holes as injuries that must be healed with its natural healing process. As part of the process, new collagen begins to grow and add firmness and strength to your skin.
At Keehan Dermatology, Dr. Keehan uses the innovative SkinPen for microneedling treatments. SkinPen is a unique microneedling device that punctures your skin in an even and controlled manner.
Dr. Keehan typically recommends three or more SkinPen microneedling treatments spaced 30 days apart for the best results.
SkinPen is the first device of its kind cleared by the FDA to treat many common skin concerns and imperfections. Using SkinPen, Dr. Keehan can help minimize or alleviate:
Many people want to target the skin on their faces with microneedling since it’s the most immediately visible to others.
However, you can use SkinPen on any part of your body with imperfect skin. SkinPen is extremely safe and minimally invasive, so you don’t have to spend time in recovery or hiding your skin as it heals.
A great way to enhance your microneedling treatment is by adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a substance that comes from your body.
To get it, Dr. Keehan takes a sample of your blood and inserts it into a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins rapidly as the blood separates into distinct layers.
The layer containing plasma (the liquid in your blood) and platelets (the factors that aid in clotting and healing) is the PRP.
When concentrated in the form of PRP, you can make your platelets target certain areas of tissue damage and boost the repair process. Your platelets release growth factors when they’re activated to make the natural healing process faster and more efficient.
If you’re interested in adding PRP to your microneedling treatment, Dr. Keehan can give you more information about what to expect.
To find out if you’re a candidate for SkinPen microneedling, with or without PRP, call Keehan Dermatology or book an appointment online today.
