SKINPEN MICRONEEDLING

We use the only FDA approved Microneedling device, called SkinPen. The device uses needles to pierce the skin in a controlled and precise pattern that works to tighten, lift, and rejuvenate the skin. It’s effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, and surgical and acne scars.


  • Safe for all skin types.
  • Creates thousands of microchannels in the skin for maximum product penetration.
  • Great option for skin with severe melasma.
  • Minimal downtime! 24 hours of redness (comparable to a sunburn).
  • Recommend 3-4 treatments, spaced 1 month apart.


Is maintenance required?

We recommend a minimum of 1 treatment every 3-4 months to maintain results, but can be done on a much more regular basis.

WHAT MICRONEEDLING DOES

The automated SkinPen device utilizes a disposable tip containing 11 microneedles. This cartridge is used to vertically stamp the skin at high speed to stimulate collagen production. The SkinPen tip creates micro-injuries that encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes. The SkinPen is as safe and effective as a fractional laser or intense pulsed light but with significantly shorter recovery period. You can treat your face, neck, décolleté, or any area of concern. A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended, spacing each treatment 4 weeks apart.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR MICRONEEDLING

Discontinue use of retinoids and prescription topicals 14 days prior to your treatment. Wait until active acne and/or any possible sunburn has subsided. If prone to cold sores, take Valtrex or something similar for few days prior to treatment. This treatment cannot be performed on pregnant or breast-feeding patients due to the ingredients in the numbing cream applied before treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A numbing topical is applied prior to treatment to allow for a near-painless experience. While receiving treatment you may feel pressure and a vibrating sensation. Immediately after treatment you will feel like you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will usually subside within 1-2 hours and will recover within 24 hours.
