Most of us are looking for the next best thing in skin care. Be it seaweed or salt water, there always seems to be new trends developing. In the case of microneedling, a non invasive cosmetic procedure that uses your body’s natural healing processes to evoke a more youthful appearance, there has recently been new cosmetic procedures incorporating microneedling, such as RF microneedling and vampire facials. Another new development in microneedling is the microneedling patch.

We support practitioners who bring this amazing non invasive cosmetic procedure to you that helps diminish acne scars and stretch marks, helps eliminate the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and helps stimulate your hair follicles to grow.

WHAT IS THE MICRONEEDLING PATCH?
Let’s start out by asking a more fundamental question: what is microneedling? Microneedling is a process that uses a needle to create tiny micro-injuries in your skin. These micro-injuries in effect trick your body to make it think it’s injured. Your skin reacts by producing collagen and elastin, proteins that are involved in the healing process. It’s this collagen and elastin that gives your skin its strength and keeps it taunt and firm. As more collagen and elastin are produced, your skin gets a natural boost and rejuvenation, which is what helps to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, as well as scarring.
Now that you know what is microneedling, MDPen will examine what is the microneedling patch. To begin with, the microneedling patch contains no needles. It’s a topical treatment with skin creams that mimic the process of micro-needling. These patches are specially formulated with skin care ingredients that target acne scars and the wrinkles around your eyes. The microneedling patches feature self-dissolving micro darts that contain active ingredients that penetrate to the deeper layers of your skin to deliver powerful substances where your skin-repair system lives.
Some microneedling patches focus on acne prevention, infusing the skin with peptides and salicylic acid to fight acne formation. These skin care patches are not new. This is the same technology that has been used successfully to help people quit smoking and to help those suffering from diabetes to receive insulin into the body.
IS THE MICRONEEDLING PATCH EFFECTIVE?
This is debatable. Effects of the microneedling patch can be seen in as little as 20 minutes, although experts recommend wearing the patch overnight for up to 12 hours in order to see maximum results. The microneedling patch will definitely brighten up your face and make your face appear fuller. However, the results are temporary.
THE MICRONEEDLING PATCH VERSUS PROFESSIONAL MICRONEEDLING
The microneedling patch is a form of at-home microneedling that requires no special tools. You simply peel off the sticky patch and attach to the desired treatment area. You might feel a little tingling when the patch is on. The microneedling patch usually contains hyaluronic acid, amino acids, and peptides to give your skin the best skin care treatment. This microneedling at home can be done anytime, even in the middle of the night when professional aestheticians and other microneedling practitioners are sleeping. And the microneedling patch is significantly cheaper.
Professional microneedling is much more effective as it penetrates to the deepest layers of your skin and stimulates collagen production at its source. Micro-needling requires a trained aesthetician, dermatologist, or other cosmetic therapist to administer the microneedling treatment. High-grade healing serums are usually applied right afterwards in order to promote healing and deliver powerful, anti-aging ingredients to the collagen-production areas of your skin for an enhanced effect. These serums contain a multitude of ingredients, including human growth factors, age-defying hyaluronic acid, and copper peptides. Microneedling is also more expensive than this at-home microneedling treatment.
