Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure used to improve skin tone and texture and to treat acne scars, fine lines, discoloration and large pores. Microneedling stimulates new collagen and elastin production through repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. The needles cause mild injury to the skin which then heals by making new collagen and elastin-rich tissue. This new skin tissue will have an improved appearance with a more even tone and texture as well as reduced fine lines and pore size. At Gerson Zatezalo Skin + Face we use the SkinPen® which is the only FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market. SkinPen® glides over the skin – many other devices use rollers which can pull and tear the skin causing more damage than good.
