What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a powerful tool for skin rejuvenation. COSMOPen is a state-of-the-art, medical grade, high speed microneedling system. It offers the same results as a fractional laser, but without the pain, downtime, expense and thermal damage.
If the thought of having multiple needle wounds in your skin sounds slightly unsettling to you, it is important to note that the punctures are very tiny like pin-pricks, and only enter the skin at surface-level.
What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling?
The downtime is minimal. However, you may experience redness for 12 to 48 hours afterward. Usually you will notice some improvement after the second or third treatment. More significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments for six-week intervals. With the proper skin care regimen, your skin will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months following your COSMOPen treatments.
Some other skin benefits to consider when choosing Microneedling are:
While initial results are almost immediate, you won’t be able to see your best results until four to six weeks after the procedure.
Microneedling costs can start from $100 and go to $700 per session. Most treatments run around $300 each session on average.
Most patients find microneedling to be a painless and tolerable procedure. This is because a numbing cream or anesthesia is applied to the skin before treatment. When applied, there is almost no feeling in the skin during the microneedling procedure.
The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications, and pregnant women. Overall, microneedling is minimally invasive, and requirs no downtime. Generally, it is safe for most people who have overall good health.
If your skin feels sensitive post treatment, you can apply aloe and take an Advil for any sensations you may feel in the face. Do not use exfoliating products for the next 48 hours. After 24 hours, it is also helpful to apply sun screen with an SPF of 25 or higher.
