WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling with SkinPen is a minimally invasive and safe option for both men and women who desire reduced fine lines, improved facial scarring, even skin tone, and smooth skin texture. And, it is safe for ALL skin types!
DOES THE MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE HURT?
Before your microneedling treatment, topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin and treatment area to minimize discomfort and allow for a relatively pain-free treatment.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AFTER A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?
Patients may experience redness/pinkness similar to a sunburn for 24-72 hours. However, most patients have resolution of redness within 24 hours.
HOW MANY MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?
A series of 3 initial SkinPen microneedling treatments scheduled every 4-6 weeks is highly recommended for optimal boosting of collagen and elastin production. For continued results, maintenance treatments are required every 6 months. In patients that desire improvement in scar visibility, 4 or more initial SkinPen treatments may be necessary.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?
While most patients notice healthier and more vibrant skin immediately, the body’s healing process continues to produce results over the course of several weeks and/or months. Long-term skin damage or injury that has occurred over an extensive period of time will not disappear immediately and often requires additional treatments for best results.
