SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that reverses the signs of aging on your skin. SkinPen is an FDA-approved microneedling device that creates extremely small micro-punctures on the uppermost layers of the skin to stimulate natural skin cell regeneration and collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to make the skin look firm, youthful, and smooth. Since the results are based on your body’s innate healing properties, the results always look natural.

SkinPen Microneedling Corrects the Following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loss of elasticity
  • Sagging skin
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Textural irregularities

How SkinPen Microneedling Works

SkinPen microneedling works by stimulating your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues, holds them upright against the force of gravity, and prevents facial sagging. The loss of collagen because of age is the primary reason for the onset of facial wrinkles and the loss of volume from the cheeks. Microneedling boosts collagen production to reverse the effects of age on your skin.

When you’re injured, your body stimulates skin cell regeneration and collagen production to heal the wounds. The SkinPen device creates thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface, which activates your body’s innate healing processes. The micro-injuries don’t damage your skin, but they stimulate collagen production, which gradually improves your skin’s firmness, texture, and strength. Over time, your facial skin looks smoother, softer, and more voluminous.

SkinPen Microneedling + PRP

SkinPen microneedling can be combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to catalyze the results. The platelets in the human blood contain a high concentration of growth factors responsible for your body’s innate healing processes, such as skin cell regeneration and collagen production. When you’re injured, the growth factors rush to the injured site to stimulate blood clot formation. We collect platelet-rich plasmas from your body to harness the growth factors’ healing properties and catalyze your microneedling results.

Your SkinPen Microneedling Experience

SkinPen microneedling is a highly personalized cosmetic treatment. The cosmetic provider adjusts the depth of the SkinPen device and determines if you need PRP after a thorough evaluation. If you have deep acne scarring and excessive fine lines, you might need to boost your microneedling with PRP. Your cosmetic provider will perform a thorough facial assessment to recommend the ideal treatment plan.

During your microneedling session, the cosmetic provider cleanses your facial skin and applies a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The SkinPen device is adjusted and gradually moved across your skin to create micro-injuries that stimulate natural collagen production. Once your entire face is covered, the cosmetic provider applies an antibiotic cream and soothing gel on your skin, which reduces discomfort and prevents infections.

Recovery After SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen microneedling involves minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the treatment areas. The side effects dissipate within a few hours or days. There’s no downtime, so you can resume work and daily activities immediately. But you should avoid strenuous workouts until the side effects subside completely. You must also use powerful sunscreen to protect your skin from direct sunlight or avoid sunlight altogether.

SkinPen Microneedling: Results & Longevity

SkinPen microneedling results appear gradually over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers. Most patients notice gradual improvements after 3 or 4 weeks, with continued improvements for several months. Combining microneedling with PRP or Morpheus8 will boost the results, allowing you to notice improvements sooner. Most patients need around 3 microneedling sessions for optimal results, but some may also need around 6 sessions.
