Reducing Facial Scarring With The SkinPen Treatment In Merseyside

Facial scarring and scars can cause great distress.

It can make people feel self-conscious and insecure, and it can be difficult to hide. If you are looking for a way to reduce the appearance of facial scarring, you’ve come to the right place to find out about the SkinPen.

What is the SkinPen treatment?

The SkinPen treatment is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses micro-needling to improve the appearance of facial scarring. Micro-needling involves using a device with tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels allow the skin to produce new collagen and elastin, which can help to reduce the appearance of scarring.

How does the SkinPen work?

The SkinPen treatment is a two-step but straightforward process. 

First, the skin is cleansed. Then, the SkinPen device is used to create micro-channels in the skin. The depth of the micro-channels will vary depending on the severity of the scarring.

Once the micro-channels have been created, a topical solution is applied to the skin. This solution contains ingredients that help to promote collagen and elastin production. 

The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete and is virtually painless with topical anaesthetic.

Causes of facial scarring

  • Injuries: Cuts, scrapes, and other injuries to the face can cause scarring. 
  • Acne: Acne is a common skin condition that can cause scarring.
  • Burns: Burns can cause scarring, depending on the severity of the burn. Deeper burns are more likely to cause scarring.
  • Surgery: Surgery on the face can cause scarring. 
  • Skin conditions: Some skin conditions, such as keloids and hypertrophic scars, can cause scarring. These conditions are characterised by the overproduction of collagen, which can lead to raised, bumpy scars.
  • Genetics: Some people are more likely to scar than others. This is due to genetics, which can affect how the body heals from injuries.
