What is Microneedling (Skin Rejuvination)?
SkinPen Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive in-office treatment designed to help give patients a refreshed glow. This treatment will help improve the appearance of uneven texture, fine lines, acne scars, pore size and hyperpigmentation. SkinPen helps the body to increase collagen production and minor resurfacing so patients experience more beautiful looking skin.
This treatment can be used alone or with a patient’s own Platelet Rich Plasma to help enhance treatment results with decreased downtime.
Please see our Pro Plasma page for more information.
What Can I Expect From a Treatment Session?
SkinPen Microneedling is a handheld device that glides over the surface of the skin and creates a series of micro-channel injuries. This therapy enhances the body’s own repair system to induce neo-collagenasis and minimal resurfacing which renders more radiant looking skin with less downtime. Patients typically experience a light sunburn sensation for 24-72 hours post therapy with a minor dry skin feeling. You are allowed to apply sunscreen and makeup 24-hours post treatment.
Until your skin has completely healed, avoid rigorous activities that might cause excessive sweating and heat production (running, high-intensity workouts, ect.) Sweating may cause irritation and rigorous activity may increase the risk of swelling, bruising and hyperpigmentation. This usually should be avoided for at least 48-72 hours after your treatment.
