Do you love your skin?
It’s an interesting question, isn’t it? Our skin does so much for us, every day. It works hard all the time. And we see it all the time—every time we look at our hands, look in a mirror, try on clothes. But often we don’t see how wonderful our skin is. We don’t appreciate it for protecting us against excessive dehydration or harmful pathogens, or producing Vitamin D, or any of the other stuff it does, because all we see are the flaws, like acne scars and wrinkles, in our skin.
It’s all well and good to say “love the skin you’re in!” over and over again, but the reality of the situation is we notice our flaws. They bother us. So why not do something beyond reciting platitudes, when there are simple, effective, easy, and relatively painless options out there that will help you love your skin like never before?
MicroPen Treatments Treat Acne Scars & More
This July (2014), Vargas Face and Skin is offering a special on MicroPen treatments. The MicroPen treats the appearance of acne scars, trauma scars (think chicken pox, etc.), fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and just generally improves your skin’s overall appearance. Patients find that after MicroPen treatments, or “micro-needling,” they see fewer wrinkles and signs of aging. Skin looks younger and smoother and stays that way for six months to up to a year.
Micro Injuries = Major Results
How does it work? Basically, the MicroPen uses tiny needles to create small injuries to your skin. That might not sound like something you want, but actually, the skin’s response to the MicroPen is to produce collagen and elastin. Therefore, your skin’s own repair process creates the appearance of softer wrinkles and the disappearing of fine lines, scars, and stretch marks. It even gives you that youthful “glow” we all covet. Quite frankly, we’re amazed by what the Eclipse MicroPen can do.
With the MicroPen, you can treat almost every part of your body to get that younger-looking skin. We treat the face, the neck, the arms, hands, legs, abdomen, back, and décolleté. The procedure is simple enough. After applying a topical gel, we’ll glide the MicroPen over your skin until the area is covered. It is relatively painless—patients report the procedure feels like fine sandpaper being moved gently over their skin. Of course, some areas are more sensitive, but the gel makes everything more comfortable, and in the end, you’ll likely only be spending 15 to 30 minutes being treated.
Unlike with more invasive procedures, the downtime after your MicroPen session is fast. Immediately after your treatment, you’ll notice redness to your skin. The healing time afterwards is based on how many passes it takes to treat your skin and the setting used, but typically patients are completely healed after two to four days, some in as little as twenty four hours. That’s when you’ll see your youthful “glow,” and after that, you’ll see visible changes over the next few days and weeks. Results improve for six months after that, as collagen production continues.
