Microneedling with SkinPen

SkinPen is the first and only Class II microneedling medical device on the market that has been studied, cleared and approved by the FDA for treatment of facial acne scars.

SkinPen does not just help with acne scars, patients also see significant improvement in overall skin tone and skin texture with the reduction of fine lines and discoloration as well. It even has shown some benefits in reducing stretch marks.

Does it hurt?

Microneedling is a short and painless procedure. When a patient comes in for microneedling, the first thing we do is apply numbing cream to the entire area being treated and let it sit for about 40 minutes. Once the skin is numb, we remove the numbing cream and cleanse the area. Then the fun begins!

A full-face procedure takes about 15 minutes. Although there may be pinpoint bleeding during the procedure, this is typically minimal and resolves quickly. A copper and hyaluronic acid serum is applied to the treated area to aid in healing and to give the skin a “glow” after the procedure. The patient will notice redness immediately after the procedure and a slight “sunburn” look that typically lasts a day or two. After 24 hours, you may resume wearing makeup and sunscreen.

How does it works?

SkinPen uses a sterile tip containing 12 pinpoint needles to make tiny, controlled, evenly spaced punctures into the skin. The small wounds created, which sometimes will cause pinpricks of blood to rise to the surface, then induce a wound- healing response. This causes your body to heal the injury by growing fresh new collagen and elastin, which gives skin more strength and resiliency.

By continuing to simulate collagen production over multiple treatments, the end result is the disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enhanced improvement in skin tone and texture, and even reduction in large pores and acne scars. It’s also great for other skin surface irregularities like crepe skin, neck lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks.

After the Procedure:

  • You will look like you got a bad sunburn on the first day, and this will minimize to pink by day two.
  • Your skin will be pink and tender, and may feel swollen, tight, or itchy; these symptoms will resolve in a day or two.
  • No vigorous exercising or profuse sweating for 24 hours. Sensitive skin should not be exposed to sweat for 48 hours.
  • Avoid make up and concealers for at least 24 hours. Light make-up after 24 hours, and normal make-up after 3 days, 48 hours, and normal make-up after 4 days.
