Microneedling is a treatment that works by creating microscopic injuries in the surface of the skin that jump-start collagen production and the skin’s repair process, creating more youthful, vibrant skin. MicroPen EVO is a U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared class II advanced medical-grade automated microneedling device that offers a higher intensity collagen induction therapy compared with other microneedling devices on the market today. That means MicroPen EVO can provide visible results even for those who have more noticeable issues related to facial acne scars, as well as the improvement of general concerns with skin texture, tone, and coloring. The MicroPen EVO device also allows for advanced treatment customization and precision. We can easily adjust the depth and speed of treatment to achieve a patient’s ideal results. Best of all, MicroPen EVO treatment is safe and comfortable for patients with most skin types, and you’ll have little to no downtime following the procedure.
MicroPen EVO is safe and effective for individuals of most skin types who are struggling with a variety of skin health concerns. The advanced microneedling technology is beneficial in addressing a wide range of irregularities in the skin’s appearance as well as offering generally more youthful, vibrant looking, and feeling skin. Before microneedling and other conservative cosmetic dermatology solutions gained popularity, the only non-surgical options to achieve noticeable results involved receiving complicated laser therapies for an extended period of time. These laser therapies weren’t always effective for all skin types, required numerous appointments to achieve the desired results, and could be uncomfortable. Additionally, laser treatments can cause pigmentation changes that make it a less than ideal solution for people with darker skin tones.
Today, microneedling, allows dermatologists to provide effective care for patients with almost any skin tone or type. The MicroPen EVO device specifically offers an advanced, automated microneedling process that improves the skin’s health and appearance, and often only require a single treatment to address an array of skin concerns on the face, neck, decolletage, hands, feet, arms, and legs.
MicroPen EVO can treat all of the following issues:
The MicroPen EVO procedure is very straightforward. Using the MicroPen EVO device, the dermatologist creates micro-injuries to the skin in the treatment area. As the body goes to work healing the skin, collagen production is stimulated, dead skin cells are shed, and healthy skin is revealed. During treatment, you can expect a quick, comfortable process. Your dermatologist will apply a saline solution to the skin. Then, the MicroPen EVO device is positioned on one side and gently glided across the entire treatment area. The procedure is relatively comfortable, and people describe the sensation as being similar to having a piece of sandpaper swept over their skin. The entire microneedling session only takes about fifteen to thirty minutes. While most people see significant improvement of the skin after their first treatment visit, dermatologists will usually recommend a series of MicroPen EVO sessions to achieve the ideal result. Your dermatologist will likely establish a tentative treatment plan during your consultation visit, but this can be adjusted as needed based on your skin’s response to the procedure.
The most common side effects of MicroPen EVO treatment are mild discomfort and irritation that are typically only experienced during the treatment sessions. Following your MicroPen EVO procedure, you may also notice that your skin is slightly pink or reddened. You might also experience some dry, itchy, or peeling skin over the first week. The side effects often depend on the individual’s natural healing response and the location of the procedure. While some people completely heal in as little as one day, others will require four days to a full week to heal. Your dermatologist will provide you with more specific information about what to expect during your treatment appointment, and they will guide you through skincare steps to mitigate any potential side effects.
Because the MicroPen EVO device accelerates the body’s innate healing abilities, people will see a dramatic improvement in the skin very quickly. Some people describe having a “glow” to their skin immediately after the procedure. These initial results develop over several months as the cell turnover and collagen production continue.
Many patients see their desired results after just one appointment, and they can maintain the results with as little as one retreatment visit a year. While one visit may be all that’s necessary for certain situations, many dermatologists recommend that patients receive a series of two or three MicroPen EVO treatments with a six to eight-week rest period between each treatment session.
Those who have more advanced skin health concerns like scarring may need more sessions (usually six to eight sessions with six weeks of rest between). During your consultation session, your dermatologist will help you plan ahead for the right number of treatments for your situation and understand what to expect when it comes to maintaining your results. This MicroPen EVO treatment plan can be adjusted throughout the process to ensure you achieve and maintain the desired results.
