What are the Advantages of SkinPen® Microneedling?

Share This Post

Aging, time in the sun, and many other factors can lead to dull, rough, or uneven skin. SkinPen® microneedling effectively corrects a wide range of skin concerns. This precise skin rejuvenation treatment lets your Levy Dermatology provider precisely target your problem areas. 

What is SkinPen® Microneedling?

SkinPen® microneedling is the first microneedling pen to receive FDA clearance. Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy. It uses tiny needles to create channels in the skin, triggering cells in the dermis to produce more collagen and elastin. These proteins restore your skin’s youthful firmness and resilience, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, 

SkinPen® is often used with PRP for even more benefits. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is extracted from your blood and applied to your skin after microneedling. It helps the microchannels heal more quickly and enhances your results.

What are the Advantages of SkinPen® Microneedling?

Microneedling remains a popular skin rejuvenation treatment, even with the variety of lasers and other methods available. SkinPen® adds to the benefits of traditional microneedling for maximum results. 

Precision Treatment

Handheld SkinPen® lets your Levy Dermatology provider focus on your problem areas. The pen-like device allows treatment around the eyes and in other delicate areas. SkinPen® is a uniquely effective microneedling device that lets providers customize your treatment. 

Enhances Collagen

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy rejuvenates your skin with new collagen. Collagen and elastin form the support network that gives youthful skin lift and firmness. Microneedling with SkinPen® triggers cells called fibroblasts to make more of these proteins. 

Full Skin Rejuvenation

SkinPen® microneedling triggers a healing response that brings healthy new skin cells to the surface. These new skin cells give your skin a brighter, smoother surface. At the same time, the new collagen tightens skin laxity and lifts fine lines and wrinkles. 

Is There Any Downtime With SkinPen® Microneedling?

Microneedling does not require downtime, letting you return to your daily routine. Many people experience a sunburn-like redness and sensitivity that usually lasts less than a day. PRP will help your skin heal more quickly. Avoid using harsh products or scrubs for a few days after treatment. Limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect your skin and its developing collagen. 

What Results Will I See After SkinPen® Microneedling?

Most people need three to six treatments to see their best results. You may notice results after a few weeks, but full results take several months to develop. Your new collagen and elastin can last a year or more. An occasional maintenance treatment can keep your skin looking smooth and firm. Ask your Levy Dermatology provider about skin care products to prolong your results.
