The best candidates for microneedling treatment with SkinPen® are men or women who want to minimize minor complexion imperfections and improve skin tone. SkinPen® can also be used in combination with other surface treatments, like chemical peels, allowing them to penetrate more deeply for more impressive results. Microneedling can be used virtually anywhere on the face or body, including the neck and décolletage.
Choosing an excellent aesthetician is an essential part of seeing the best results from microneedling. Our staff has the right combination of expert training, an understanding of the science behind microneedling, and extensive knowledge of skincare treatments to ensure beautiful results with SkinPen®.
Microneedling takes your skin’s natural capacity to heal itself and directs that ability toward repairing skin imperfections. Applying the SkinPen® to the skin’s surface generates microscopic channels with the help of tiny needles. The treated dermis responds by boosting collagen and elastin production, refreshing and rejuvenating your appearance for skin that’s clearer, firmer and younger-looking.
When performed in a licensed medical spa by a skilled aesthetician, microneedling offers a chemical-free, non-surgical way to improve facial scars and skin tone with minimal risk. SkinPen® is an FDA-registered Class I Medical Device that uses state-of-the-art technology to encourage healthy skin without the lengthy recovery period associated with more invasive alternatives.

Your aesthetician will move the SkinPen® slowly and precisely over the treatment area during an in-office visit. Most people say they feel only a mild vibrating sensation during treatment. While many men and women see improvements after only one or two appointments, a series of treatments is often recommended for the optimum outcome.

For deeper scars, adding injectable fillers after a series of microneedling treatments can provide the finishing touch for a smooth, polished complexion.

Scheduling a consultation before your microneedling session can help us develop a treatment plan that’s designed to meet your specific skincare needs.

Right after your appointment, your skin may look red or feel tender, but this should fade quickly. Some swelling in the first few days is also normal. Since SkinPen® is minimally invasive, you can expect to return to your normal daily routine right away with no downtime.

Your aesthetician may suggest following a special skin care regimen that includes the use of medical grade skincare products to give your complexion extra care as it heals.

Your results should become more visible as healing continues following your microneedling treatment. Additional sessions are cumulative, and build upon the results of your very first appointment. Over time, you can expect to see the gradual diminishment of lines and scars, as well as an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.
