Restore Your Collagen with MDPen Microneedling

Collagen is a protein that is essential for maintaining the health and appearance of your skin. It’s responsible for keeping your skin firm, smooth, and youthful-looking. However, as we age, our collagen production decreases, which can lead to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Fortunately, there are ways to restore your collagen, and one of the most effective treatments is microneedling with MDPen

Benefits of MDPen Microneedling for Collagen

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a pen-like device with tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin. These microchannels stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, which includes the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, microneedling can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, as well as improve skin texture and tone. 

Microneedling is also a safe and effective treatment for all skin types and can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. Additionally, microneedling is a cost- effective alternative to other collagen restoration treatments, such as laser resurfacing and dermal fillers.

Microneedling Aftercare Tips

After a microneedling treatment with MDPen, it’s important to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

Keep the treated area clean and moisturized: Use a gentle cleanser and a moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated and prevent dryness and peeling.

Avoid sun exposure: The treated area may be more sensitive to the sun, so it’s important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and avoid direct sunlight.

Avoid harsh skincare products: Avoid using harsh skincare products, such as exfoliants or acids, for at least 24 hours after the treatment. 

Avoid exercise and sweating: Avoid exercise and sweating for at least 24 hours after the treatment, as sweat can irritate the treated area.

Avoid makeup: Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after the treatment to allow the skin to breathe and heal.

Aftercare Microneedling Treatment

After a microneedling treatment with MDPen, it’s normal to experience some redness and mild swelling, which typically subside within a few days. However, it’s important to avoid certain activities that can hinder the healing process and potentially damage the skin.

For instance, avoid exposing the treated area to hot water, such as hot showers or saunas, for at least 48 hours after the treatment. Hot water can cause the skin to become inflamed and irritated, which can delay the healing process.

Additionally, avoid picking or scratching the treated area, as this can cause scarring and infection. Instead, let the skin heal naturally and use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer to keep the area clean and hydrated. 

Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for collagen restoration and improving the overall health and appearance of your skin. 

With proper aftercare, you can ensure optimal results and maintain your skin’s youthful-looking glow. If you’re considering MDPen microneedling, be sure to consult with a licensed skincare professional to discuss your options and develop a customized treatment plan.

"MDPen Copper & HA Mist is easy to apply, full of natural and healing ingredients, and calming to skin in distress. I especially love using this mist when I am wearing a mask all day - especially when I fly and my skin is forced to endure both dry airplane air and a mask for hours and hours on end. I take this in my carry on and reapply as often as I can! It is also great for after treatments that leave your skin irritated for a few hours (including micro needling, fractional laser, derma planing, microdermabrasion, etc.). I keep this mis nearby for skin regeneration after those deep exfoliating treatments. The hyaluronic acid draws more moisture into the skin for intense hydration...did you know hyaluronic acid can absorb 1000x its weight in moisture? As the first active ingredient in this formula, no wonder this mist soothes thirsty skin! This product does not tend to upset acne prone skin but does help reduce scarring and discoloration."
