SkinPen Microneedling is a skincare treatment that is specifically designed to stimulate your skin’s ability to regenerate new skin cells and repair itself. SkinPen works to encourage natural production of collagen and elastin, which offers a bright, rejuvenated look to your skin. It is extremely safe and effective, has minimal downtown and can be used on all skin types.
SkinPen is the first FDA cleared microneedling device and is one of the safest, most effective devices that uses sterile, disposable needle cartridges to ensure sanitation and reduce the risk of cross-contamination. During the treatment which generally lasts about an hour, the “pen” which has tiny steel needles, puts shallow punctures into the skin to create a controlled opening of the dermis. After treatment, the skin goes into self-repair mode in which high levels of collagen are formed and the skin is strengthened. It is normal for the skin to have a pink glow. Our aesthetician will discuss skincare products to ensure that the treated skin heals properly. The healing period varies by patient and depends on the kind of treatment received, but 2 to 5 days is the average healing time.
The number of SkinPen sessions needed to achieve your aesthetic goal will be determined during your initial consultation. The specific course of treatment will depend on the extent of skin damage and the nature of the results you wish to achieve. Most patients undergo a series of three treatments that are spaced about four weeks apart. Additional treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of your current skin condition.
Patelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections can be added to the Microneedling treatment to create more tightness in the skin and to speed up the healing process.
