SkinPen Microneedling at SkinCare Austin
If there were one treatment to address numerous of our patients’ most common skin concerns, SkinPen micro-needling would check many of the boxes for us.
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles? Check. More even skin tone and texture? Check. Acne scarring? Check.
For smooth, healthy skin that truly glows from within, SkinPen micro-needling is simple, effective and requires very little downtime.
How does micro-needling work?
Collagen, which naturally provides structural support to the skin, diminishes with age, resulting in wrinkles, laxity and other signs of aging.
SkinPen creates thousands of precise micro-injuries or “micro-channels” in the dermis, which stimulates new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. This technology takes advantage of the skin’s natural healing process.
When SkinPen makes microchannels in the skin, the skin naturally produces new collagen and elastin in the treatment areas, leading to a fresher skin appearance, reduction of scarring and diminished fine lines.
What areas can be treated with SkinPen?
SkinPen can be used to improve the appearance of the face, neck and décolleté. Upon consultation, it may also be used to soften scarring and stretch marks in other areas.
How often can I benefit from SkinPen?
We recommend a series of four to six treatments every two to four weeks for superficial micro-needling. For deeper micro-needling, we recommend intervals of four to six weeks. Please inquire about micro-needling packages at SkinCare Austin to experience maximum benefits and cost savings.
Following consultation, your micro-needling cycle at SkinCare Austin will be customized to meet your specific goals. We may recommend combining micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments and specific products from our favorite professional skincare lines to maximize your results.
What can I expect during my treatment experience?
Prior to your treatment, your provider will provide a numbing cream to keep you more comfortable during your treatment. This typically takes 20-30 minutes to take effect, depending on the treatment area.
Your provider will perform your procedure in a minimally-invasive and precise manner with the use of a sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed in 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the required procedure and anatomical site
After your treatment, your skin may appear slightly pink to red, similar to a mild to a moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity following the procedure. Within the next 24 hours, the skin will often appear to have returned to normal. After three days, there is rarely evidence that the procedure has taken place.
