FAQs: SkinPen MicroneedlingDedham Medical Aesthetics

Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about fine lines, wrinkles, and scars on your skin? SkinPen microneedling is an effective treatment that may be the right option for you. This minimally invasive procedure uses a handheld device to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin, prompting the body's natural healing process and stimulating collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin appears smoother, more even, and more youthful.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling can address various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. It can also improve the absorption of topical skincare products by increasing the penetration of active ingredients.

Microneedling is a safe and effective procedure by a qualified medical professional. It typically requires little to no downtime and can be performed on various skin types. To determine if microneedling is right for you, consult with a qualified medical professional who can assess your individual needs and goals.

What is the SkinPen?

The SkinPen is a state-of-the-art microneedling device that can improve skin appearance by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. It is a handheld device that contains multiple tiny needles that penetrate the skin's surface to create controlled micro-injuries. This prompts the skin's natural healing process, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin appears smoother, more even, and more youthful.

What does a SkinPen treat?

The SkinPen is FDA-cleared and is used by medical professionals to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. It is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that can be performed in-office and requires little to no downtime.

Is the SkinPen right for me?

Microneedling with the SkinPen can be an effective treatment option for various skin concerns. However, it's essential to determine if the SkinPen is the right treatment option for your individual needs and goals.

If you experience any of the following, you may be a candidate for the SkinPen treatment:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars or other types of scars
  • Hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone
  • Sun damage or age spots
  • Overall texture and appearance of the skin
  • Want a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option
  • Want to improve the absorption of topical skincare products
  • Cannot undergo more invasive cosmetic procedures due to health reasons or other concerns.

It's important to note that while the SkinPen can be a safe and effective treatment option for many individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone. If you have active acne or eczema, a history of keloid scarring, or other skin conditions, the SkinPen may not be suitable for you.

To determine if the SkinPen is right for you, it's best to consult with a qualified medical professional. They can assess your needs and goals and recommend the best treatment options for your unique situation.

What does a SkinPen feel like?

Although the SkinPen microneedling procedure can cause a certain degree of discomfort, many patients still find it to be generally tolerable. The sensation experienced is often described as a mild prickling or vibrating on the skin. This intensity may differ depending upon factors such as your skin sensitivity, the body area being treated, and the depth of needle penetration during treatment.

To minimize discomfort, a numbing cream or topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin before the procedure. This can help reduce any pain or discomfort during the treatment.

After the procedure, the skin may feel tight, slightly swollen, or somewhat tender to the touch. These sensations are normal and should subside within a few hours to a few days after the treatment.

It's important to note that everyone's experience with SkinPen microneedling may vary depending on their individual pain tolerance and the area being treated. If you have concerns about discomfort or pain during the treatment, speak with your provider beforehand to discuss your options for minimizing discomfort during the procedure.

How long does it take to see results from the SkinPen?

The time it takes to see results from a SkinPen microneedling treatment may vary depending on the individual and the specific skin concern being addressed. Generally, visible results can be seen within a few days to weeks after the treatment. However, optimal results may take several weeks or months to fully appear.

This is because the SkinPen treatment stimulates the skin's natural healing process, which takes time. It takes time for the body to produce new collagen and elastin fibers and for the skin to regenerate and improve in appearance. Results may also vary depending on the depth and intensity of the microneedling treatment and the number of treatments received.

How often should I schedule follow-up SkinPen sessions?

Multiple SkinPen microneedling treatments may be recommended to achieve the best possible results. Typically, treatments are spaced several weeks apart to allow the skin to fully heal between treatments. Your provider can recommend the appropriate treatment plan based on your needs and goals.

Is SkinPen Microneedling Right for You?

If you're looking for a minimally invasive treatment option to improve the appearance of your skin, SkinPen microneedling may be the right choice for you. Utilizing the power of collagen and elastin stimulation, SkinPen can help diminish visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, scars, and fine lines - leaving you with a refreshed complexion. Schedule a consultation to see if the SkinPen is right for you and develop a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.
