SkinPen Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling essentially boosts collagen production from the inside out. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep your skin looking youthful by enhancing a firm, smooth, and elastic texture. You see improved results over time, so you achieve brighter, firmer skin and a more youthful glow.

SkinPen is a device with dozens of fine needles that puncture the top layer of your skin. These micro-injuries stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is the effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

What are the benefits of microneedling with SkinPen?

SkinPen is safe and FDA-approved. The multi-purpose treatment provides total skin rejuvenation, treating and improving the look of:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores

Treatments feature minimal downtime, are cost-effective, applicable to all skin tones, and involve no chemicals, heat, or toxins. The Opulence Modern Medical Artistry team may recommend you combine SkinPen microneedling with platelet-rich plasma, or PRP,  to maximize your benefits. PRP is a healing compound derived from your blood. 

You achieve a beautiful complexion without invasive surgery or laser treatments that often require a long recovery.

What are the effects of microneedling?

Experience improved skin health, strength, and radiance with microneedling. SkinPen treatments can:

  • Reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimize the look of mild to moderate scarring
  • Improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • Shrink enlarged, visible pores

Microneedling also enhances your skin’s ability to absorb topical serums, creams, and balms – making these products more effective. 

How many treatments will I need?

Opulence Modern Medical Artistry recommends multiple treatments, each spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. The team develops a customized plan for you, depending on your particular skin complaints.

Does microneedling hurt?

Microneedling with SkinPen is well-tolerated. As the device rolls over your face, you will feel a slight pricking or pinching sensation. In areas where your skin is thinner, such as on your chin and forehead, you may have slightly more sensitivity during the procedure. Your technician will apply a light numbing cream prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.
