Micropen for Glowing Skin

Smiling Woman on Couch | MIcropen AtlantaDesigned to treat fine lines, acne scars and improve the skin’s overall appearance, Micropen or micro-needling is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine available in the Atlanta area. In order to produce collagen and elastin, Dr. Chapman uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. The appearance of softer wrinkles and a thicker dermis form from the skin’s repair process. Topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin because of the superficial micro-channels that are created by the Micropen. The Micropen can be used to treat areas on the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back and even helps to treat uneven texture, color, and tone of the skin.

During the procedure, Dr. Chapman will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. The feeling associated with the Micropen treatment is said to be like sandpaper moving across the skin. The treatment time is usually around 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. There is no downtime for the treatment, however, patients’ skin can stay red for 2-4 days following the treatment but may completely heal in little as 24 hours.

Patients normally see an immediate “glow” to their skin. Over the course of several days and weeks, visible changes to the skin develop and continue to develop for up to six months. Depending on the treatment area, a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart is recommended for patients.
