What is Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy)?

SkinPen Microneedling is a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment for treating imperfections like acne scarring, stretch marks, wrinkles, large pores, and other skin conditions.

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, involves the use of fine, short needles that penetrate the skin to cause micro-injuries and stimulate the body’s natural healing process.

The result? Your body’s elastin and collagen production will improve. Collagen growth encourages cell turnover. This is the process of transforming old skin cells into new, healthy cells.

Expect a radiantly glowing, healthy complexion after the removal of the old skin cells.

The SkinPen Technology

SkinPen is the FDA’s first approved microneedling device. It has been clinically proven safe for all skin types. Practitioners can adjust the needles to fit any skin type and texture easier than with other devices.

Am I a good candidate for SkinPen Microneedling?

What happens if I am pregnant?

Unlike deep chemical peels, dermal fillers, and other cosmetic procedures, microneedling relies on the body’s natural rejuvenation process, it’s considered safe for pregnant women.

Skin health benefits of microneedling

The Skin Pen Microneedling treatment is a safe and effective anti-aging and scar-reduction treatment. These are some of the amazing benefits you can expect:

Is there a downtime?

After your SkinPen Microneedling, you can expect mild to moderate swelling, as well as erythema that feels similar to a mild sunburn.

Mild to moderate bruising may occur and subside within three to seven post-treatment days, depending on your skin condition. 

How long does it take for results to be ready?

You can see the initial skin tightening as well as pore reduction as soon as the treatment is done. The full results aren’t visible until approximately four to six weeks following your anti-aging treatment. 

Although collagen production and cellular turnover are both accelerated, it still takes time for your body to make new, healthy collagen. The average turnover time for dead skin cells and healing is about 3 to 4 weeks for most people.

How long do results last?

The timeline of results differs from person to person. Most people experience results for between eight and twelve weeks. You may notice a longer-lasting effect if you take good care of your skin.

How many treatments do I need?

In as few as three minimally invasive microneedling treatments spaced 30 days apart, your appearance will improve, and your confidence will boost.
