The SkinPen Microneedling device is the first FDA-approved microneedling device. The SkinPen Microneedle triggers your body’s natural wound healing process, which makes your body create more collagen and elastin. A SkinPen Microneedling facial is a type of collagen induction therapy, as collagen helps create skin that is more elastic, or “youthful.”
A Solana Spa Aesthetician uses the SkinPen Microneedling to create controlled, microscopic-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. The result is the production of more collagen and elastin, creating an effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
Treatments typically take at least 30 minutes, but can go up to an hour. Much of this depends on the size of the area treated, and number treated areas.
On the day of treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to improve comfort. Patients report feeling the vibration of the SkinPen Microneedle, but no pain. After treatment, your skin will temporarily be pink with slight swelling. Results can be seen after just three treatments, and the number of treatments range from four-to-six.
Some patients report swelling, or redness and pinkness on their skin that’s like a mild sunburn. Most patients see their skin return to normal after just one day, but everyone is different, and some patients may take two-to-four days.
The process of creating micro wounds triggers a response from your derma that can take weeks or even months to complete. Much of the degree of SkinPen Microneedling treatments depends on the patient’s affected area. Stronger treatments will see skin appear more youthful gradually over the course of the months, and can take up to six months for full results.
