Stimulate New Beauty
Microneedling is a cosmetic technique that involves making tiny holes in the skin with a mechanical needle to promote collagen growth and restore the skin's flexibility. The stimulation of new blood vessels by microneedling is another way in which this treatment aids in skin rejuvenation, leading to skin that is plumper, firmer, and more youthful appearing. In addition, the texture, tone, and skin color are more uniform after treatment. Microneedling is safe and effective for all skin types, and it may be used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions.
When moved over the skin, the SkinPen’s tiny needles create up to 1,600 micro-channels per second. By introducing these microscopic holes into the dermis, this specific brand of derma pen promotes excellent cellular healing, which can give your skin a more youthful appearance and a smoother, more elastic texture.
Restore and Renew
Microneedling is highly effective for treating:
People whose skin is marred by blemishes and wrinkles, making it look aged or dull-looking, are excellent candidates for SkinPen microneedling. Because it is safe for use on various hues and textures of skin, the SkinPen procedure is open to virtually anyone who desires it.

Your Comfort is Our Priority
The SkinPen for microneedling doesn't necessitate extensive preparation like more invasive procedures. However, at the time of your appointment, if we discover that your blood is already thin, we will ask you to refrain from using any blood-thinning medications for the two weeks before your procedure. Some drugs that fall under this category are garlic supplements, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors.
Additionally, 14 days before treatment, you should refrain from using any topical retinoids or acne treatments. Finally, it would be best to cut back or eliminate everything that causes your blood pressure to rise, such as alcohol, tobacco, excess caffeine, or salt intake over three grams daily. Before your session, drink about a gallon of water to maximize your skin’s performance. The fact that the SkinPen instrument causes almost no pain or discomfort during treatment is one of its most appealing features. Your treatment will begin with an alcohol-based cleaner to sanitize the treatment areas. Then, we can numb the treatment area with ice or a topical anesthetic if you choose. You'll feel the very tiny needles as they prick your skin, but far less than you would if you were, say, getting a shot with a larger-gauge needle like a syringe.
Regenerate Better Days
Your body will naturally create more collagen after treatment, helping your skin to retain its elasticity, youthful appearance, and overall health. However, it takes around four to six weeks following the initial treatment session to see a significant improvement in the skin's elasticity.
The initial tightening will be seen right away. However, the ultimate results of skin tightening take about a month to appear as the skin completes its production of new collagen. Therefore, depending on the number of sessions required, the full effects of the treatment on deep scars or stretch marks may not be visible for up to nine and a half months.
Afterward, you can go back to school or your job wearing any cosmetics you like. However, for the first two weeks after treatment, you must protect the treated area of the skin from the sun by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every four hours.
This is because new, more delicate skin is replacing the old, making you more vulnerable to the sun's harmful UVA and UVB radiation. You can still acquire a sunburn even if you're wearing protective clothing. Even on cloudy days, the sun's rays can cause skin damage. In fact, the sun can still scorch you when you're inside your office, thanks to windows. Indoor tanning beds are also a major source of UVA and UVB radiation.
Many patients require three to six treatment appointments to achieve complete scar reduction. However, you will notice a gradual improvement in scar texture, usually within six to eight weeks of your first appointment.
