What Is SkinPen Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment in which very small needles are used to create harmless micro-injuries on the surface of the skin. This stimulates the formation of new collagen protein in the tissues to heal these micro-injuries. In the process of healing, the skin’s appearance is rejuvenated.

When used in combination with radiofrequency energy waves, the service is called RF microneedling. While microneedling is being performed, the radiofrequency waves are transmitted into the skin through the needles. These waves stimulate collagen production.

The Benefits of Using RF Energy with Microneedling

Since both techniques impact the collagen-producing centers of the skin, you may be wondering why it helps to use them in combination with each other.

Put simply, while microneedling works on a surface level, radiofrequency waves reach much deeper in the skin layers. Addressing deep layers and surface layers leads to more comprehensive results for a variety of skin issues.

Additionally, pairing these techniques leads to an increased amount of collagen and elastin protein production as compared to either technique on its own. This results in more effective rejuvenation.

How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?

With age, the natural production of collagen within our bodies will begin to degrade. Over the course of time, this causes our skin to lose elasticity, making wrinkles and fine lines appear more prominently. In addition, exposure to the sun and pollutants in the environment can severely degrade the look and feel of the skin.

SkinPen microneedling is a process that can help stimulate the body’s production of collagen to reverse the effects of aging on the skin. Some initial results can be seen immediately after the treatment with optimal results appearing with a series of treatments.

What to Expect After the Treatment

The treatment may cause minor swelling on the target area, which generally disappears within an hour or two. Tiny scabs may develop in the target area after the service. Dermatologists recommend not to irritate them by picking with your hands. These are nothing to worry about and will fall off on their own.

Improvement in the skin tissues occurs gradually as new collagen and elastin is produced. The results look quite natural.

Common Questions

Microneedling can address a number of issues, including oversized pores, dullness, age lines, acne scars, chickenpox scarring, roughness, and loose skin.

Microneedling only takes an hour to perform. Once the skin is cleansed, a topical numbing cream may be applied. After this takes effect, the microneedling device is held against the skin of the treatment region.

Because a numbing cream is applied to the area beforehand, any pain or discomfort is minimal.

No recovery time will be needed following microneedling treatment. The service is only minimally invasive and requires no scalpels or incisions of any sort.

The exact price of microneedling depends on the med spa you choose for treatment. The number of treatment sessions needed also affects the final cost.
