What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, which offers a safe and effective microneedling experience. Microneedling is a technique that involves creating micro-channels in the skin, which trigger a healing response from the body. The body then creates new tissue and increases collagen production to heal the treatment area. This process ends up remodeling the skin to create a more youthful appearance and diminishing skin damage and signs of aging.
What are the Benefits of SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen microneedling is the leading microneedling treatment because it offers the following benefits:
- Natural methodology (no heat, chemicals or stress)
- Safe for all skin types (Fitzpatrick skin types I - VI)
- 30-minute treatment session
- Very little downtime
- Results in as little as 3 treatments
- Results last up to 6 months
With these benefits, SkinPen is the preferred microneedling device for addressing acne scars, neck wrinkles and other cosmetic concerns across the body.
What is the SkinPen Microneedling Treatment Like?
The SkinPen microneedling treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to perform. Prior to treatment, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort from the microneedling process. To perform treatment, Dr. Leverett will use the SkinPen device to create microscopic wounds in the skin. After the entire treatment area has been addressed, the treatment is complete.
What is the SkinPen Recovery Process Like?
Most patients experience very little downtime after their SkinPen treatment and are able to resume normal activities in about 24 hours. You can expect some swelling, redness and bleeding in the skin, all of which should resolve fairly quickly. Applying an ice pack to the skin can help alleviate these symptoms. Patients are advised to use sunscreen and avoid any abrasive skin treatments for the first 48 to 72 hours after your microneedling treatment while the skin is sensitive.
What Results Can I Expect from SkinPen Microneedling?
The results from SkinPen microneedling develop gradually as the skin creates new skin tissue and implements new collagen into the treatment area. Most patients will need a series of three SkinPen treatments to achieve results, although we may recommend various treatment plans depending on the patient. Patients will notice optimal results approximately one month after their final treatment session, with these results lasting approximately six months after the final treatment session.
