What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment in which a device with multiple small needles is pressed into the surface of the skin to create small punctures called microchannels. These microchannels are microscopic damage to the skin. The body sends collagen and elastin to the treated area to repair the microscopic damage which is how the fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, and dewy glow and firmness is returned to your skin. Microneedling effectively minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, and enlarged pores.

What is the SkinPen®?
The SkinPen® is the only FDA-approved microneedling pen device on the market. SkinPen® treatments are comfortable, minimally invasive and include a soothing aftercare regimen with serums. The SkinPen® carefully and precisely creates controlled punctures to the treated area that effectively stimulates the body’s natural healing process. As we age, our body does not create collagen or elastin as quickly as it did when we were younger. The SkinPen® damages the skin tissue in a controlled way to trigger the body’s healing process creating collagen and elastin faster than it naturally would. This results in a boost of collagen and skin cell regeneration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize scarring and reduce the appearance of large pores for a smooth and more youthful complexion.

What Results Can I Expect After My Microneedling Treatment?
Results of your microneedling treatment may not be immediate and generally become noticeable over time. You may notice your skin is pink and sensitive to the touch after your treatment, but that typically resolves on its own after a day or two. It may take multiple treatments to achieve ultimate results, but
many patients report seeing a significant difference in the size of their pores and the appearance of scarring, fine lines or wrinkles after one treatment. Results are best maintained with a healthy skincare routine and regular follow-up treatments.
