How the Microneedling Pen really works
Basically, 12 needles on the very tip of our microneedling pen are are used to puncture the top layer of the skin as it glides over the area being treated. Usually, the device will be positioned vertically over the skin and when it is turned on, a motor that is found inside the pen will start making the needles to move rapidly back and forth on the skin surface creating the punctures and these needles have been created in such a way that they can rotate in a slight way. These punctures created in the process are usually aimed at opening up the pores for a period of time only.
When a person hurts themselves, the skin will generally initiate skin repair by stimulating growth factors that will, in turn, lead to the generation of collagen and elastin. Therefore, when the punctures are made, the skin will treat the punctures as wounds and therefore initiate healing. This means that microneedling tend to trick the skin to produce collagen and elastin to promote ‘healing’ and the effect will be a rejuvenated skin.
Microneedling is used mostly for face wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and facial lines. When one is injured and the skin forms a scar, or if they have a stretch mark the body will treat these as though that area was repaired. Therefore having the punctures created in the scar tissue will cause the skin to initiate healing and, therefore, the damaged skin will tend to get eliminated and replaced with new skin. For wrinkles and face lines, basically, the produced collagen and elastin will cause the skin to thicken and also tighten leaving the skin looking youthful.
Microneedling Pen vs. Roller What’s the difference?
Both Microneedling Pen and Microneedling Rollers are forms of microneedling used to stimulate the production of new collagen by needling the skin. Microneedling causes micro-injuries to the epidermis, which signals the body to produce collagen to remodel the damaged area, which in effect rejuvenates the skin making your skin look younger and fresher and effectively treats an array of common skin concerns such as acne scarring, lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, stretch marks, and more…
So, if both the microneedling pen and roller are both forms of microneedling then what makes them so different?
Microneedling pens can easily treat those hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, nose and upper lip whereas it is more difficult to reach these areas with traditional rollers.
Needle depth can be adjusted with Microneedling Pen whereas the Microneedling Rollers can only reach a single depth. The benefit of adjusting needle depth allows us to cater to different areas of the face that require different penetration levels for best results.
This is extremely important when treating specific skin concerns such as acne scarring or delicate areas of the face such as the eye area.
Less epidermal damage resulting in minimal down time
The needles in Microneedling Pens penetrate the skin vertically whereas with Microneedling rollers the needles penetrate the skin at an angle causing more chance of ‘tears’ through the skin leading to more side effects and therefore longer recovery time.
Fast treatment with minimal discomfort
A Microneedling Pen is more precise and accurate on its depth of penetration and can penetrate the skin from up to 100 times per second with an adjustable speed whereas speed cannot be adjusted with Derma rollers as this is dependent on the handlers technique. Being able to adjust the speed minimizes skin damage, pain and recovery time.
