Microneedling

What is microneedling?
SkinPen is a microneedling device that stimulates your skin's natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin. The treatment can help with
  • -fine lines
  • -large pores
  • -Scars
  • -thin skin
  • -skin tone
  • -lax skin.
It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed in-office by a qualified, trained clinician. The tip of the pen holds a series of tiny surgical steel needles which pierce the skin. The depth is based on each patient’s specific skin condition. The needle cartridge is disposable, and the SkinPen itself is designed to minimize the risk of contamination. Micro needling triggers the skin’s natural healing response, resulting in healthy, glowing skin.
Who is a Skinpen candidate?
Immediately following microneedling expect the skin to be red and flushed, similar to a mild sunburn. Some clients will experience mild swelling, tightness, and pinpoint bleeding which can last 24 – 72 hours. Total healing time depends of the depth of the treatment, skin type and skin condition and one can expect slight peeling and dry skin.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Anywhere on the body can be treated. Even under the eyes!
How long does it take and does it hurt?
The treatment itself will take 30 minutes or less. There is minimal discomfort with this treatment. Patients may arrive 1/2 hour early for topical numbing. You will feel a slight vibrating sensation to pinching on thinner sensitive areas. The short-time discomfort (if anything felt) is well worth the results.
What can expect after the procedure?
Immediately following microneedling expect the skin to be red and flushed, similar to a mild sunburn. Some clients will experience mild swelling, tightness, and pinpoint bleeding which can last 24 – 72 hours. Total healing time depends of the depth of the treatment, skin type and skin condition and one can expect slight peeling and dry skin.
When will results be seen after microneedling?
Patients typically notice an immediate glow within the first few days, but the most visible improvement will take about 2-4 weeks and continue improving for 3-6 months.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people will need a series of 3 to 6 sessions, about 4 weeks apart. Overall skin rejuvenation will need 3. Deeper scars and stretch marks will be more towards 6. Softness and repair usually occurs with each session.
Can I get a SkinPen treatment if I’m pregnant?
SkinPen is not recommended for pregnant women because the micro-needles produce micro-injuries on the skin, which naturally causes a repair process to begin. This healing process and production of new collagen requires vitamins and nutrients to be utilized that would otherwise be reserved for the unborn child.
Can SkinPen be used on all Fitzpatrick skin types?
Yes! In fact, this is a big advantage offered through SkinPen’s technology. SkinPen treatments can be performed on all skin colors and types.
Is there anyone who should not use SkinPen?
Use of SkinPen is contraindicated for patients with: A history of keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; a hemorrhagic disorder or hemostatic dysfunction; or an active bacterial or fungal infection.
Can I wear make-up immediately following a procedure?
Typically, patients can resume their normal makeup and skin care regimen 2-3 days following their SkinPen treatment. As this may vary based on the area and type of treatment performed.
