Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin.
Advanced microneedling is a customized service at Premier Dermatology. Out clinical aestheticians select a mild chemical peel to begin the treatment followed by SkinPen Microneedling. This extra step helps remove dead skin cells and allows the SkinPen treatment to penetrate deeper. Advanced microneedling is ideal for those with more extensive sun damage or more fine lines and wrinkles.
SkinPen works by creating a series of hundreds of microscopic channels into the dermis to stimulate the skin’s natural production of new collagen and elastin, helping skin to look and feel healthier. SkinPen® needles cycle at 100+ stamps/second, potentially creating 1600+ microchannels/second when moving the skin pen.
SkinPen® procedures are beneficial to assist in reducing the signs of aging, improving the appearance of stretch marks and/or acne scars, as well as to rejuvenate aging skin.
The Benefits Of Your SkinPen® Microneedling Procedure Include:
Who is a candidate?
One of the most exciting things about SkinPen® microneedling is that it can be used on all types of skin, on all skin colors. Talk to your SkinPen® provider to discuss your specific needs.
Is microneedling with SkinPen® only used on the face?
SkinPen’s variable needle depth allows for maximum versatility, making it safe and effective to use on many parts of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage. Talk to your SkinPen® provider to discuss your specific needs.
Does the procedure hurt?
Most SkinPen® providers apply a topical anesthetic to the skin prior to the procedure. This allows for a relatively pain-free experience. Ask your skincare professional what they do to ensure patient comfort during the microneedling procedure.
What is the downtime, and what side effects should I expect?
The total healing time depends on each individual patient. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for two-to-four days. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours. Click on the SkinPen® procedure page to see actual patient results up to three days post-procedure. *Individual results will vary.
When will I see results?
Patients may notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress through the course of several weeks. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the final result for up to six months following your final session. *Individual results will vary.
How many procedures are recommended?
The number of procedures required will be determined by your skincare professional based upon your individual procedure goals and the overall health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of three procedures spaced about four weeks apart. Your provider will develop a procedure and maintenance plan specific to you to help maintain the rejuvenating effects.
Can I wear make-up immediately following a procedure?
Patients typically can resume their normal makeup regimen two to three days following the SkinPen® procedure, depending on the area and type of procedure performed.
Can I get a SkinPen procedure if I'm pregnant?
SkinPen® is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
Is there anyone who should not use SkinPen?
As with any procedure, patients should take precaution when determining whether the SkinPen® procedure is right for them. Consult your provider to discuss whether SkinPen® is right for you.
