What Is SkinPen Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling using SkinPen is growing in popularity. It is a treatment that helps create microchannels in the skin. These microchannels help stimulate elastin and collagen production. This helps leave the skin looking and feeling fresher and smoother. Not only does SkinPen Micro-Needling deliver phenomenal results, but it also makes it easier for the skin to absorb skincare products. These products can be applied immediately after treatment.

What Skin Conditions Can Be Treated?
SkinPen Micro-Needling can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. Some of those conditions include fine lines, stretch marks, scars and poor texture. This treatment can also treat uneven skin texture and discoloration. Keep in mind that SkinPen Micro-Needling is safe to use on all skin types. Unlike many other treatments the SkinPen does not cause trauma to the skin. Additionally, people are not required to avoid the sun after their treatment. However, people are strongly encouraged to use sun protection if they will be spending a lot of time outside.
Results can be seen after just one treatment. However, some patients are required to get six to eight treatments before they get the result that they want. The condition of the skin is one of the factors that affects how many treatments that one will need. For example, people who have mild to moderate acne may need three or four treatments. Patients who have very deep scars may require more than five treatments.
Patients will typically have to wait four to six weeks in between treatments. Maintenance treatments can help extend the amount of time that the results last and are recommended every six to 12 months.
One of the many great things about SkinPen Micro-Needling is that it can give amazing results and does not require invasive surgery. This treatment is very safe and chemical-free.
This treatment is performed inside our office. There is anesthetic cream that can be used in order to keep the patient comfortable during his or her treatment.
