What Happens During SkinPen Microneedling Treatment?

To begin your microneedling appointment, we’ll discuss your skincare goals and the best ways to achieve them with our professional-grade skincare treatments. SkinPen Microneedling can be performed using a topical numbing cream for your comfort, and we’ll begin by cleansing and preparing your skin. Then, the SkinPen handpiece with very fine needles is used to precisely generate tiny, controlled wounds in the skin of the treatment area. Once the area is treated, your skin will be neutralized and made ready for your return home.

SkinPen Microneedling Maintenance

After your SkinPen microneedling session, you can expect some redness and sensitivity, but this subsides within a few days. You’ll be given detailed instructions to follow in order to care for your skin like avoiding harsh ingredients, keeping the area moisturized, and using sun protection regularly. It takes time for your skin to begin generating new collagen, so you’ll see your results emerge over the course of a month or more. You can maintain and improve your results with repeated treatments, and our skincare team will make sure you understand the right treatment plan for you. You can return for maintenance treatments every 6 months to 1 year in order to continue boosting your body’s natural collagen production for anti-aging benefits as well.
