MicroPen® Aesthetic Treatment
Shreveport Medi-Spa Specialists
One of the latest and greatest developments in aesthetic skincare medicinal treatments is the MicroPen®. Using advanced Automated Micro-Needling technology – also called Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy (ECIT) – the MicroPen® can target specific skin issues, blemishes, and disorders for rapid alleviation. Best of all, you can now enjoy this aesthetic treatment at The Plastic Surgery Center in Shreveport, led by Dr. Forrest Wall.
Our Shreveport plastic surgeons can use the MicroPen® to:
- Remove fine laugh lines
- Minimize small creases
- Clear up acne scars
- Restore skin tone and texture
The Plastic Surgery Center is considered far and wide to be an innovative leader in plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures. We always put patient safety and satisfaction first and foremost. By the time your treatments are complete, we hope you feel youthful, glowing, and content with the way you look. You deserve nothing less than total self-confidence.
How the MicroPen® Works
The micro-needle of the MicroPen® makes miniscule injuries where needed on your skin. We will target problem areas carefully and with utmost precision, thanks to the microscopic size of the needle. Your body’s natural healing process will react to these “micro-injuries” and send collagen and elastin to the micro-injury, jump starting the rejuvenation process. The end effect is skin that looks, feels, and is healthier than it was before the MicroPen® procedure.
What you should know about the MicroPen® Medi-Spa treatment:
- Patients report minimal discomfort during procedure.
- Redness caused by procedure lasts typically 24 hours but may last up to 96 hours.
- MicroPen® is safe for most skin types – we will let you know if another option is better.
- Procedure takes less than 30 minutes in most cases.
- Results are immediate – you can feel the difference right away!
- Multiple treatments are recommended over the course of a few months.
While the MicroPen® has been heralded as an amazing Medi-Spa treatment for facial improvement, it is not only for the face. Our Shreveport cosmetic surgeons have the skill and technical knowledge to use the MicroPen® in other trouble areas around your body, such as the face, neck, arms, legs, and more.
MicroPen® Primes Your Skin for Further Care
At The Plastic Surgery Center in Shreveport, Louisiana, we love the MicroPen® for so many reasons, including the fact that it sets your skin up for easy, effective care after each procedure. As the MicroPen® is smoothly directed around your face or body, it leaves behind micro-channels of the aforementioned micro-injuries. Skincare gel, creams, lotions, and tinctures all flow more easily into these new micro-channels, enhancing the effectiveness of those products without needing to do anything else. If you are not sure what skincare products you should be using after a MicroPen® treatment session, ask our team and we would be happy to help you decide on a few.
