The SkinPen Experience:
We use the SkinPen device that creates micro-injuries in the skin with tiny sterilized needles to stimulate the skin's natural wound healing response. This activates collagen and elastin production and regenerates the skin. Before the treatment a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort.
Microneedling procedures allow for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin.
Microneedling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile needle head.
WHAT TO AVOID Before your SkinPen Treatment:
Microneedling is contraindicated for patients with:
Active bacterial or Fungal infection
Acne Vulgaris stage III-IV
Collagen vascular diseases
Herpes Simplex or if prone to cold sores- may have to take medication
The procedure is normally completed within 40– 60 minutes, depending on the required procedure and anatomical site.
Number of Treatments
Depending on area being treated, a series of 3-6 treatments spread 4-6 weeks apart is recommended to have full benefits of microneedling.
After your treatment you may experience, burning, itchy dry skin. You will have a sunburn look to your skin for approximately 24 hours or more depending on your sensitivity. 48-72 hours you may experience some peeling to your skin. After your SkinPen treatment you will have a take home kit that contains product to be used for the next 48 hours.
