SkinPen® Microneedling Q & A
What is SkinPen®?
The SkinPen® is a state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared micro-needling device. Microneedling tools typically roll the microneedles over your skin, but the SkinPen® is different.SkinPen® is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool that works by creating a series of microscopic channels into the skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin production.
It delivers tiny needle pricks vertically, which means it's more precise and can treat small areas that bulky rollers can't reach, such as the contours around your nose and mouth. Your skin will look and feel healthier with little or no downtime! SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used on all body parts and on all skin types.
Your provider at Avante Laser & MediSpa can adjust the length of the needle to customize your treatment, depending on your skin thickness and type. The SkinPen® controls needle action using a medical-grade motor that creates micro-injuries rapidly while minimizing cellular damage. The result is the effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
How Does SkinPen® Work?
SkinPen® micro-needling works in three phases:
Phase I: Inflammation. Microneedling triggers your immune system to disinfect the treatment area, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to generate new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. Your treatment area experiences new growth of collagen and elastin, as well as a new network of blood vessels.
Phase III: Remodeling. Growth in the previous two steps leads to new dermal tissues, blood vessels, and collagen for a healthier complexion.
What should you expect during a SkinPen microneedling procedure?
Available only through skincare professionals. Your provider applies a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure. The treatment takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the amount of skin and the number of areas treated.
Most patients have minimal swelling and redness following their micro-needling procedure. These side effects may fade within 24 hours for some patients, but most find that their skin is back to normal in two to four days.
Skincare after micro-needling helps minimize swelling and boosts healing, so you'll receive product recommendations and specific instructions about how to use them on your skin.
