Microneedling Benefits

  • Reduces pore size
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lifts, tightens, and firms skin
  • Improves the appearance of scars from acne and more
  • Assists with redness and pigmentation.

What is SkinPen?

SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market. It’s also made in the USA and undergoes rigorous safety testing to ensure your skin gets the reset that it needs. This in-office treatment has little-to-no downtime, is minimally invasive, and produces natural results that improve with time. The greatest advantage? The treatment is safe and effective for every skin tone and type!

How does it work?

Microneedling reaches the skin below the surface. The SkinPen uses tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin’s outer layers. Your aesthetician will select the precise speed and depth settings for your personal goals. These tiny punctures stimulate the body’s production of collagen and elastin during the wound healing process. The wound healing process has three phases:

  1. Inflammation – Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue. This phase creates redness that lasts 1-2 days.
  2. Proliferation – The wound begins to rebuild with new immature cells and a new network of blood vessels.
  3. Remodeling – New cells mature as dermal tissues with a new network of blood vessels. These strong dermal tissues replace the wound. This phases lasts about 6 weeks, after which point you can be retreated.
  4. SkinPen precision microneedling is effective in smoothing unsightly scars without harming skin structure. The device’s design enables aestheticians to access small areas with ease, such as around the nose (anyone else have that annoying nose ring scar from 2007?). Using microneedling can reveal smooth, healthy skin that glows from within!

What Can I Expect During My Treatment?

Before your procedure, make sure you do not use any retinol products 72 hours prior and make sure you inform your provider about any medications you may be taking (blood thinners, fish oil, Accutane, etc.).

When you come in for your treatment, our Licensed Medical Aesthetician will begin the procedure by applying a topical numbing cream that will make the treatment comfortable. After the numbing cream sits on your skin for a few moments, they will begin with a light cleanse and application of ZO Accelerator Serum that will infuse into your skin during the microneedling treatment.

During the treatment, the SkinPen will glide over your skin with ease. It is not particularly painful! There are some areas that can be more sensitive than others, but almost all patients report that the treatment is quite easy and tolerable.

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will have a pink glow that resembles a light sunburn. Your skin may feel a little tighter or warmer than usual. Expect slight redness over the next 24-48 hours as your skin begins to repair and renew. After 48 hours, there should be no lasting side effects and you can begin your normal skincare regimen. Of course, after any skin treatment…don’t forget your sunscreen!

How many treatments do I need? How long will my results last?

Oftentimes patients see positive results after one treatment, which can be a great introduction to microneedling. To get the full effect of the treatment our aestheticians will likely recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. This is because skin takes about 4 weeks to synthesize new collagen and resurface.
