At the Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery, we offer a wide variety of services to address the unique skin care needs of our patients. We are happy to offer SkinPen microneedling for patients who are interested in anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is the process of creating tiny “micro-injuries” to the skin that stimulates the body’s natural healing process. The procedure promotes regeneration of the collagen network. Collagen and elastin are responsible for keeping the skin firm, so once the collagen begins to grow, patients will notice their skin is tighter, smoother, and younger looking.
Why would I choose SkinPen Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can give you long lasting results. It’s versatile because it can be used on nearly any area, even the face, neck, and décolletage. SkinPen microneedling is appropriate for use on nearly any skin type and can reduce the signs of aging as well as minimize acne scars and stretch marks.
What to Expect with SkinPen
Each SkinPen procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes. A topical anesthetic is applied for a comfortable experience.
After the procedure, most patients will experience redness and swelling like a mild sunburn for several days. Healing varies based on the individual patient. During the healing time, we can recommend proper skin care protocols and products.
Patients can expect an average of 3-6 treatment sessions spaced a month apart to achieve desired results.
Results will continue to improve over time as the collagen regenerates. Most patients see complete results within 3-6 months following treatment.
If you are ready for a truly remarkable way to leverage your body’s natural healing process to achieve younger, smoother, more radiant skin, Microneedling may be the solution for you.
