Curious about SkinPen microneedling? Here’s what you need to know.
During a SkinPen microneedling treatment, tiny pinpricks along the surface of the skin trigger skin’s natural regeneration and healing processes. Microneedling treatments refine pores, trigger collagen production, improve skin texture, minimize scars, fade skin discolouration, and more. Microneedling is a non-invasive, effective solution for fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
This happens in three phases:
» Inflammation. The tiny incisions trigger an immune system response to remove dirt and debris, increase circulation and generate new tissue formation.
» Rebuilding. The wounds are rebuilt with new healthy cells to form a fresh healthy matrix and a new network of blood vessels.
»Transformation. New dermal tissues and blood vessels remodel the skin for a renewed complexion.
How does it feel?
A SkinPen microneedling treatment feels like a series of tiny vibrations – you can request a numbing cream if you know you have sensitive skin. Afterwards, the skin will feel sensitive for a few hours post-treatment, similar to a sunburn. This is normal as the body’s healing responses are activated. As symptoms subside, remodeled skin will emerge, and some patients will begin to notice results immediately.
Ninety percent of patients in a clinical trial said they would recommend SkinPen microneedling to a friend, and we agree!
