Microneedling (SkinPen) Q & A

What is SkinPen?

SkinPen is the only FDA-cleared microneedling device with the highest safety standards.

Internal studies have shown a significant boost in skin appearance with as few as three treatments spaced 1 month apart.

Compared to other microneedling devices, SkinPen offers many unique advantages:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Little or no downtime
  • Superior safety profile
  • Effective on all skin types
  • Versatile use on all parts of the body

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses multiple tiny, sterile needles to create equally tiny holes in the skin to induce the body’s natural healing response. What results is fresh, new skin with little or no downtime. In addition to stimulating the formation of new collagen and elastin, microneedling also creates microchannels that allow for more efficient penetration of nourishing serums.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling works on multiple levels to result in more radiant, younger looking skin. It causes microinjuries to the skin which jumpstarts the skin’s natural growth, repair, and renewal process. It forms new collagen and elastin, the foundation of healthy, even-textured skin. It also creates microchannels for more effective penetration of therapeutic serums and creams during the treatment.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling is effective in treating a range of skin woes and can be used on all parts of the body including the face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, leg, abdomen and back. Those who see the most benefit from microneedling include men and women with:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentaiton
  • Stretch marks

What can I expect after a microneedling treatment?

While there is little to no downtime for a microneedling treatment, the final results are seen 4-5 days post-treatment. Here is what you can expect following a SkinPen treatment:

  • Day 1: Expect mild to moderate swelling and redness, similar to a mild sunburn. Although rare, there may be some mild bruising as well.
  • Day 2: Some persisting redness and bruising may be present - nothing that makeup couldn't cover.
  • Day 3: Most redness and bruising should have subsided, but some minor swelling could still exist.
  • Day 4: Skin should appear mostly normal at this point but with a renewed and refreshed glow!
