The SkinPen is the industry leading standard for precise, controlled micro-injuries to the skin which aids in the production of collagen and elastin. As the skin heals from this treatment it produces a thicker epidermis with softer appearance of fine lines, scars, and overall pigment and texture of the skin.
Who can benefit from Micro-needling?
SkinPen Microneedling can be used on all skin types to address a variety of concerns from pigmentation to texture irregularities and most all areas of the body can be treated safely and effectively. It is also very effective for acne scars and for scars from previous injuries or surgeries.
What can I expect after treatment?
SkinPen is considered a minimal downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red. Skin care products will be recommended for your post care based on your individual skin, these will greatly minimize symptoms and enhance your overall results. Most all patients see results after the first treatment; however, a series of treatments is typically recommended for best results. While subtle changes can be detected just a few days after the treatment, true changes or results are seen within 1-2 weeks. New collagen & elastin formation in the skin are documented as visually and measurably improved as much as one year after just one treatment. The overall result will last longer when using an at home skin care regimen.
