SkinPen is a minimally invasive device with a pen-like hand-piece that can be used to treat acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, wrinkles, and surgical scars by using 14 fine microneedles that repeatedly pierce the skin, creating thousands of microinjuries per treatment to stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation therapy used to induce the production of collagen and elastin to help minimize signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars, and improve the appearance of skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, and more.
During your consultation for SkinPen Microneedling, our experienced skincare professionals will engage in a comprehensive discussion about your specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals. We'll carefully evaluate the condition of your skin and discuss your expectations for the treatment. This initial consultation is an excellent opportunity for you to ask questions and gain a thorough understanding of the SkinPen Microneedling procedure, including what to anticipate during and after the treatment. We'll also review your medical history to ensure that SkinPen Microneedling is a safe and suitable option for you. Following this consultation, we will work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to address your unique skincare needs, providing you with a clear path toward achieving smoother, more radiant, and revitalized skin.
Each treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area with little downtime. It is safe to use on all skin skin types.
SkinPen works by making hundreds of microscopic channels per second into the dermis to stimulate new collagen and elastin production, helping skin to look and feel healthier.
Results from SkinPen Microneedling can vary from person to person, but many individuals start to notice improvements in their skin within a few weeks of the initial treatment. This may include a reduction in fine lines, improved skin texture, and a more even skin tone. However, the full benefits of microneedling often become more apparent over time as collagen production continues to increase. Most people experience progressive improvements for several months after a series of treatments. For some, significant changes may be seen after a single session, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve their desired results. Your skincare provider can provide more specific guidance based on your unique skin concerns and treatment plan.
Following a SkinPen Microneedling treatment, proper recovery and aftercare are vital for optimal results. Immediately post-treatment, expect mild redness and swelling, which typically resolve within a few days. Avoid makeup application during the first 24 hours. Protect your skin from sun exposure for at least a week, applying a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen daily. Follow the recommended skincare routine, avoiding harsh products and exfoliants for about a week. Stay hydrated and refrain from picking or scratching any scabs or flaking skin. Patience is key, as results develop over weeks to months due to increased collagen production.
Dr. Guirand or the sculpMD staff will review your medical history, take photos, and perform a physical examination to see if you are a good candidate for SkinPen treatment.
