How SkinPen ® Microneedling Works
Microneedling is a highly effective skin therapy treatment designed to treat a wide range of cosmetic goals. These goals can include tightening lax skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, improving moderate to severe acne scarring and stimulating skin remodeling resulting in improved tone and texture. Temporary redness and swelling post treatment is expected. Treatments are most effective in a series spaced 30 days apart.
What to Expect on the Day of Treatment
Before the microneedling treatment a numbing cream is applied to your skin where you will receive treatment. The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the Skinpen ® handpiece over the treatment area. During treatment, thousands of micro-perforations are made along the planned treatment area to trigger the body’s natural wound healing processes, allowing skin to heal, repair and rejuvenate itself from the inside out. A warm sensation after treatment is common. For a few days after your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn but can resume your normal day to day activities immediately following treatment.
Post Treatment Instructions for SkinPen ® Microneedling
Immediately after the treatment, it is common to feel a mild sunburn-like sensation around the treatment site, which typically lasts 2-24 hours. Redness and/or swelling may accompany this and usually resolves in 2-3 days.
Do not use skincare products (makeup, cleansers, moisturizers or sunblock) on the treated area for 24 hours after treatment.
Days 2 through 4 post treatment, use a gentle cleanser and a sunscreen SPF45 or greater and avoid extended sun exposure. Some persistent swelling may be present. You may apply makeup if desired.
How Long Does SkinPen ® Microneedling Last?
You can expect results from SkinPen ® Microneedling treatment to last four to six weeks. SkinPen is not a permanent procedure. It should instead be accompanied by other regular cosmetic procedures to ensure longer lasting results. Our Reno ophthalmologist clinic offers a variety of cosmetic services that can complement your SkinPen ® Microneedling treatment and maintain your results.
