Frequently Asked Questions

What is microneedling?

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.

What is the SkinPen device?

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.

What are the benefits of a SkinPen microneedling treatment?

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.

What skin concerns can be addressed with microneedling?

Microneedling can help with skin rejuvenation, acne scarring, surgical scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven complexion, and stretch marks

Who is eligible for a SkinPen microneedling treatment?

People age 22 and above are eligible for SkinPen microneedling treatments.

What is a SkinPen treatment session like?

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.

How many treatments are needed?

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.

What are the side effects and downtime?

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.

What post-treatment care is needed after a SkinPen microneedling treatment?

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.

How long do the results of a SkinPen microneedling treatment last?

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.
