What is Microneedling?
One of the least invasive methods of skin remodelling, microneedling involves several tiny needles that are moved slowly over the skin, creating nearly invisible punctures called microchannels. These stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, increasing the production of collagen and elastin underneath the surface. Over time, these essential building blocks of the skin remodel the surface, reducing the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Uneven tone and texture
- And more!
Additionally, the microneedling process also tightens existing collagen fibers, helping to create younger-looking skin over the course of a few weeks.
What is SkinPen®?
The SkinPen® is the only FDA-approved automated microneedling device that incorporates a high-speed motor for exceptional skin-enhancing results. As the pen travels across the skin’s surface it deploys 12 tiny needles into the epidermis to stimulate healing and the production of collagen. The SkinPen® is highly effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles, scars, uneven texture and enlarged pores.
What Areas Does It Treat?
The SkinPen® treats all areas of the face and neck, including the chest. It can also be used to rejuvenate the skin and ameliorate scar tissue on other parts of the body such as abdomen, arms, legs and back.
What Does It Feel Like?
Prior to starting each microneedling session with the SkinPen® a topical numbing cream is administered for 30-45 minutes. This ensures the procedure is extremely comfortable and relaxing for patients. Once the treatment begins it can best be described as a soft prickling sensation.
Some areas of the face may be slightly more sensitive than others (around the eyes, nose and mouth) so the technician will decrease the needle depth in these tender zones for a more comfortable experience.
What Happens During The Procedure?
Once the numbing cream has been removed the skin cleansed and the treatment can begin. The technician glides the SkinPen® closely above the surface allowing the needles to create micro-punctures called “channels” in the skin. Several passes with the device are made in one session to make sure all the treatment areas are covered.
What Happens After The Treatment?
Immediately after the procedure skin can feel tight and look pink; however, patients can return to work the next day. It’s best not to use any irritating skin products for at least 48 hours. The technician will recommend or provide you with the appropriate post-recovery gel or serum to use for the next couple of days to assist with the healing process.
We encourage you to schedule a consultation at our clinic to find out if you’re a good candidate for the SkinPen® microneedling treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Microneedling is a popular option for skin remodelling because of its ability to heal the skin from the inside out without any recovery time or side effects. Treated areas may appear flushed or pink for the first day or so, which is a good indication that the skin healing process has begun. Most patients immediately return to normal activities, and our medical team will discuss all other relevant safety information with you prior to your treatment.
Results may vary, and it may take multiple treatment sessions to achieve your desired appearance. Our medical team will let you know what you can expect during and after treatment as well as how many sessions you may need.
