SkinPen Microneedling

 

What is SkinPen Microneedling?

SkinPen is a Collagen Induction Therapy device that creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process.

This allows the skin to remodel and restructure the look and integrity of the skin tissue. This results in smoothing of fine lines/wrinkles, texture, such as acne scarring, and helps to treat pigmentation.

SkinPen FAQ


HOW LONG WILL THE PROCEDURE TAKE AND WILL IT HURT?

The procedure typically takes around 30-45 minutes for a face. We recommend applying a topical anesthetic to the skin prior to the procedure. This allows for a comfortable experience.


WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR SKINPEN?

One of the most exciting things about SkinPen is that it can be used on all skin types year-round.

HOW MANY PROCEDURES ARE NEEDED FOR BEST RESULTS?

The number of procedures required will be determined by your provider based upon your individual procedure goals and the health of your skin. We recommend a minimum of 3 procedures spaced about 4 weeks apart. Your provider will develop a procedure plan specific to your needs and a maintenance plan to help maintain the rejuvenating effects. However, on scar tissue we will recommend a minimum of 6 treatments.


WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Clients may notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks.
Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately.

 

CAN I HAVE A SKINPEN TREATMENT IF I AM PREGNANT?

We do not recommend SkinPen for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.


CAN I WEAR MAKE-UP IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A PROCEDURE?

Clients typically can resume their normal makeup regimen after the first 48 hours following their SkinPen® procedure depending on the area and type of procedure performed.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AND WHAT SIDE EFFECTS CAN I EXPECT?

The total healing time depends on each individual client. Most clients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 24- 48 hours post treatment. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.

If you are prone to cold sores, consult your doctor about preventative medication.

During your consultation, we will explain how to apply your numbing cream. The numbing cream should be applied 30 mins prior to arriving for your treatment.

We recommend changing your pillowcase on the day of treatment so that there are no contaminants that will come in contact with your newly treated skin.
