What is SkinPen microneedling?
It is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. The needles range from 0.25 – 2.5mm and rotate over the skin from a pen-like device, which creates tiny wounds that breach the epidermis and deeper dermis. This creates tiny controlled injuries to promote collagen formation, allowing the skin to remain tighter and thicker as we age.
What are the benefits of SkinPen microneedling?
The in-office treatment has proven to help the skin’s overall texture and stimulate collagen production. Microneedling can minimize pore size, improve skin quality and texture. It also reduces the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks and fine lines.
Does SkinPen microneedling really work?
Yes, when used correctly and in qualified trained hands, it works. Some cases require a series of treatments and some can be combined with other technology to optimize improvements in problems like acne scars and stretch marks. Other technology that can be combined with microneedling includes PRP/PRF and cosmeceuticals.
Does SkinPen microneedling hurt?
Trained staff will apply a numbing agent over the entire face prior to treatment to improve patient comfort. Additional numbing with nerve blocks can be administered, if required. This treatment is generally well tolerated with minimal downtime. During the treatment, patients will hear a little buzzing noise over their skin. After treatment, patients may experience slight skin sensitivity, redness, and swelling. By nighttime, patient’s skin will look back to normal or mildly pink.
How many SkinPen microneedling treatments are recommended?
The number of microneedling treatments depends on the specific clinical indication. Usually, a series of 3 treatments spaced out every 4 weeks is ideal for optimal results. To find out more information, call Hanami Medspa today.
