What is Micro-Needling?
SkinPen® is a microneedling procedure that creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process, which triggers new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve optimal results.
What does it feel like?
Micro-needling feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Topical numbing may be applied prior to your procedure, but no anesthesia or medications are necessary.
What can I expect after a Micro-Needling procedure?
Your skin is expected to look and feel like a severe sunburn with redness, slight swelling, feeling tight, and mild burning sensation the first 24 hours. The next day your skin be red, swelling burning sensation should start to resolve. Side effects are temporary and typically resolve within three days. Mild flaking may start on day 2 or 3 after the treatment and my flake for up to 5 – 7 days. Total healing time depends on the depth of the treatment, skin type and skin condition. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
Patients typically notice an immediate glow, but visible improvement will take about two to four weeks and can continue for up to six months. It will take up to 3 months or more to see optimal results with lines and wrinkles.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart is ideal for optimal results. Some conditions such as deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks and acne scars may need six to eight treatments.
