SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen Microneedling is a gentle yet effective skin-rejuvenation procedure that stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin fibers. This natural response helps to plump and thicken the skin, diminishing the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Treatment Highlights

  • Improves skin quality and texture: Within 1-2 days you will begin to see an immediate difference in skin texture and scar reduction. 
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles: The microneedles break into the upper levels of the dermis which releases growth factors that produce collagen and elastin levels. 
  • Minimal downtime: Downtime is generally 1-2 days for face and neck, depending on treatment level (makeup can be worn 24 hours after treatment).  
  • Treatment intervals: Treatments are typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart. 
  • Number of Treatments: We recommend 3-4 sessions for optimal results.
