Many people face a common dilemma when it comes to facial aging or skin problems: Real results require too much downtime and commitment. Procedures like laser or chemical peels are not convenient for many people’s busy lifestyles. Instead, they may settle for over-the-counter skin products that simply don’t deliver noticeable results. What if there was a way to get amazing skin with a cosmetic surgeon's expertise without the hassle?
With collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, you can get remarkable results with minimal downtime. Many common skin concerns can be addressed in a safe, incredibly effective procedure that doesn’t cause damage or excessive side effects. With microneedling, the skin’s natural healing process is stimulated, blood supply is improved, and elastin and collagen is rebuilt, which means you’ll see and feel amazing results that can make you look and feel years younger.
All microneedling devices are not created equal
You may have heard of microneedling before, but not all microneedling devices are the same. For instance, some older microneedling devices, such as dermarollers, don’t carry the same level of safety, accuracy, and effectiveness as a pen needling device. But how will you know the difference? If you’re not sure, ask the cosmetic surgeon what kind of device he or she uses.
Inquire about these characteristics:
- Does the device have a disposable tip? Reusable microneedling devices can carry a risk of cross-contamination.
- Is the device able to work in small areas? Delicate areas like crow’s feet benefit greatly from microneedling, but many devices are too bulky and can only reach the larger areas of the face.
- Are you able to control the speed and depth of the treatment to meet my needs? You want to ensure you’re getting the most powerful results with minimal side effects, so you’ll want your provider to have the ability to customize the treatment for you.
- How much trauma to the skin is expected? The device should be designed to stimulate your skin’s youthful processes without damaging the skin.
COSMOPen, in particular, is a leading collagen induction therapy device with the superior qualities listed above.
Will microneedling work for me?
The COSMOPen works well for many different skin types and concerns because of its ability to be tailored to your individual needs. Many cosmetic surgeons say the results of COSMOPen rival those of more invasive treatments such as laser and chemical peels, but you need to talk with a qualified provider to ensure the treatment will give you the improvement you desire. Generally, COSMOPen works very well at improving problems such as:
- Aging skin
- Pore size
- Broken capillaries
- Fine lines and wrinkles
COSMOPen is also an excellent complement to other procedures such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy. With its versatility at treating a variety of skin concerns, you may find you can get the skin you’ve always wanted without surgery or lengthy recovery time.
