So Precise

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment method that involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin surface, causing minor trauma. This trauma prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild and increase collagen production. The results leave skin rejuvenated, smoother, and younger looking. 

So Much Collagen Production

What are the benefits of SkinPen Microneedling?

Because SkinPen works by turning up the production of collagen and elastin, it is a safe and effective method for revitalizing your skin's overall texture and clarity while fading specific concerns:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage.
  • Acne Scars: Break down and turn over atrophic acne scars (which have a depressed appearance) and spots of hyperpigmentation.
  • Uneven Skin Texture: Smooth out uneven skin for a more refined complexion.
  • Hyperpigmentation: Shed and replace pigmented skin cells to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma.
  • Large Pores: Minimize the appearance of large pores.
  • Stretch Marks: In addition to treating areas of the face, microneedling is an excellent option for fading stretch marks on various areas of the body.
  • Dull or Lackluster Skin: Enhance your skin’s luminosity through the production of new, healthy skin cells.
  • Sagging or Lax Skin: Microneedling can help tighten and firm sagging skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in a more lifted and youthful appearance.

Areas that can be treated with SkinPen microneedling include the face, neck, décolletage (chest area), hands, arms, abdomen, thighs, or back. The SkinPen device is highly adjustable, allowing your aesthetic specialist to target specific concerns while providing all-over rejuvenation.

Your Microneedling Procedure

Most microneedling sessions take around 30 to 60 minutes, with the total session time depending on the treatment area. Your aesthetic specialist will cleanse your skin and apply a numbing cream to reduce the sensation of the SkinPen handpiece. The SkinPen device, equipped with sterile, disposable needle cartridges, is gently pressed against the skin and moved in a controlled motion, creating thousands of tiny, controlled micro-injuries in the skin's surface, stimulating the body's natural wound healing response.

Your provider may adjust the length of the needles to target specific concerns.  Once the microneedling process is complete, the skin is treated to a high-quality serum with proprietary ingredients matched to your skin type. The tiny micro-injuries created during the procedure act as channels to deliver the serum’s nourishing and hydrating properties deep into your skin. 

So Simple

Microneedling Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery after microneedling is relatively simple. However, it’s important to follow our aftercare guidelines in order to derive the best result from your treatment and minimize side effects. After a microneedling session, your skin may appear red or mildly swollen. Your skin may also be sensitive, similar to the way it feels after getting too much sun. You will be advised to avoid direct sun exposure for a day or two to protect the sensitive treatment area. Other guidelines include using gentle skincare products and keeping your body and your skin well-hydrated. 

For the best results, we may recommend a series of microneedling sessions spaced several weeks apart. Spacing apart treatments gives your skin time to recover as collagen production and cellular turnover revitalize your complexion from within. 

So Revitalizing and Revealing

 Microneedling Results

Within one to two weeks after a microneedling treatment, you will probably begin to notice an improvement in the overall appearance of your skin. Your skin will be smoother, softer, and more even in texture. Over the following weeks and months, the treatment continues to stimulate your skin's natural healing process, kickstarting the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. As time passes, you will enjoy further improvements in skin texture, firmness, and elasticity and a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and acne scars, providing a dewy, revitalized appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Micro-needling can treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and skin texture by stimulating the skin's natural ability to produce new collagen formation, creating healthier skin.

Treatment time ranges from 15-30 minutes per area, depending on the area.

Results can be seen after the first treatment, and results improve with each additional treatment.

Depending on the area being treated and the aggressiveness of treatment, there can be some slight discomfort during the procedure. A topical anesthetic can be applied 15-20 minutes prior and is removed before the micro-needling treatment begins to help alleviate discomfort.

Redness of the skin can appear, as well as possible pinpoint bleeding. The severity of redness depends on how aggressively the treatment was performed and your individual skin type. You can resume normal activity after the procedure, including driving yourself home. Minimal swelling may occur and be more noticeable on the second day.

The benefits of microneedling can be seen after just one treatment. It is recommended that three to six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, are performed for maximum results. In cases where a more aggressive treatment schedule is needed, such as acne scar revision, a greater number of treatments may be necessary for maximum results.
