The SkinPen device has a disposable cartridge of very short, fine needles that create tiny "micro injuries" in the surface of the skin to initiate its natural repair and regeneration processes. Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling increases blood flow, generation of new dermal tissues, and production of collagen and elastin. The depth of treatment can be adjusted to the thickness of the skin and desired depth of treatment.
We use microneedling to help women and men rejuvenate exposed skin such as on the face, neck, décolletage, and backs of the hands. Benefits, include:
The SkinPen allows for a wide range of needle penetration (0.25 to 2.5 mm) giving it the versatility to a variety of skin conditions and areas of the body. Many dermarollers have just 1 to 2 depths (0.25 to 0.5 mm).
Microneedling treatments are performed right in our office using topical numbing cream for enhanced comfort. The SkinPen device a disposable cartridge of needles that vibrate as it is run across the skin's surface (feeling similar to the vibration of an electrical toothbrush). Treatments typically take an hour to perform.
After a microneedling treatment, expect your skin to look severely sunburned and feel tight and dry. We will give you a topical serum to apply to your skin as needed. It's important to keep it clean and dry and postpone workouts for the first 24 hours to give the micro-channels time to close at the surface of the skin.
Patients often notice immediate improvement in the texture and brightness of their skin; however, it takes about 4 to 6 weeks for lasting changes like new collagen to develop.
For optimal results, we recommend 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. After that, you can have a maintenance treatment every 3 to 6 months.
