Frequently Asked Questions
Microneedling, otherwise known as percutaneous collagen induction therapy, is a relatively new, minimally invasive treatment that can be used to address several cosmetic concerns. Microneedling uses tiny needles to create “microchannels” in the skin. This stimulates wound healing cascade, resulting in new collagen and elastin production. Elastin and collagen are proteins that facilitate the remodeling of the skin tissues, which ultimately improves the health of the skin and clears away imperfections.
The SkinPen is a microneedling device that received clearance from the FDA after being clinically proven to be an effective and safe treatment option for skin issues.
The main benefits of a SkinPen microneedling treatment are its minimally invasive nature and its affordable cost. It is also quite safe for all skin types.
Microneedling can help with skin rejuvenation, acne scarring, surgical scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven complexion, and stretch marks
People age 22 and above are eligible for SkinPen microneedling treatments.
A SkinPen microneedling treatment begins with the application of topical anesthesia to the targeted region. This numbs the region to any discomfort. Next, the SkinPen device is passed over the treatment areas to create even results. Any serums administered penetrate deeper into the skin tissues through the microchannels, improving their efficacy.
Optimal results are achieved with treatments every 2 to 4 weeks for 3 to 6 sessions. Occasional treatments may be needed to maintain your results.
Treatments are usually well tolerated and most patients can return to work the very next day. For two to three days, you may notice mild swelling, redness, and flaking.
Patients are advised to moisturize their skin well after a SkinPen treatment. Sunscreen and other forms of sun protection must be utilized, since the skin will be especially prone to sun damage while healing.
The results of a SkinPen treatment can be seen for around six months after the third and final treatment. This varies from patient to patient.
