SkinPen microneedling in Shelby Township is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin, stimulating collagen production. Targeting areas like the face, neck, and décolletage, XO Aesthetics offers personalized microneedling to improve overall skin health.

Boost collagen
& elastin production

SkinPen Microneedling is an advanced cosmetic treatment that utilizes a pen-like device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries trigger the skin’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin production. By promoting cellular turnover and enhancing skin elasticity, SkinPen Microneedling effectively reduces fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

How SkinPen Microneedling works

SkinPen Microneedling works by inducing controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s dermis, triggering the body’s natural wound-healing process. As the fine needles penetrate the skin, they create tiny channels, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This process, known as collagen induction, leads to skin regeneration, improved texture, and increased firmness. Additionally, the micro-injuries from SkinPen microneedling in Shelby Township enhance the absorption of topical serums or creams, maximizing their effectiveness. Over time, this results in smoother, rejuvenated skin.

The XO approach: Exosomes with microneedling

XO Aesthetics catalyzes the microneedling results by applying exosomes to your skin after treatment. Exosomes are extracellular vesicles that contain growth factors, cytokines, and signaling molecules. When combined with microneedling, exosomes penetrate deep into the skin, enhancing cellular communication and promoting tissue regeneration. These bioactive compounds stimulate collagen production, accelerate healing, and improve skin texture. Exosomes also possess anti-inflammatory properties that boost recovery. This approach amplifies the benefits of microneedling, resulting in enhanced skin rejuvenation.

Benefits of SkinPen Microneedling:

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Improves skin texture and firmness
  • Minimally invasive with little downtime
  • Suitable for various skin types and tones
  • Enhances absorption of skincare products
  • Safe and effective for facial and body areas

Your SkinPen Microneedling session

During your SkinPen microneedling in Shelby Township, our skincare professional will start by cleansing your skin and applying a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. Once your skin is prepped, they will gently glide the SkinPen device over the treatment area, creating controlled micro-injuries. You may feel a slight tingling sensation, but the procedure is well-tolerated. Afterward, your skin may appear slightly red or swollen, resembling a mild sunburn, but this subsides within a few days.

SkinPen Microneedling aftercare guidelines:

  • Keep the treated area clean by washing gently with a mild cleanser.
  • Apply a soothing moisturizer to hydrate and protect the skin.
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to shield the skin from UV exposure.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for at least a week post-treatment.
  • Refrain from picking, scratching, or rubbing the treated area to prevent irritation.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to support skin healing.
  • Follow any additional instructions provided by your skincare professional for optimal results.
  • Contact your provider if you experience any unusual discomfort, redness, or other concerns following SkinPen Microneedling in Shelby Township.
