Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a cosmetic procedure which involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. SkinPen creates micro-channels (microscopic holes) at a rate of 1600 per second. The small wounds encourage your body to make more collagen and elastin which heal your skin giving it a more youthful appearance. Best of all, SkinPen doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are natural and safe for all skin tones and types. Microneedling may help with issues with acne, hair loss, hyperpigmentation (dark spots or patches of skin), large pores, reduced skin elasticity, scars, stretch marks, sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles.

Microneedling benefits

aging reduction

Aging doesn't just show up as wrinkles and discoloration. As
you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, so it appears lax.
Aging skin may also look dull and lack a lustrous glow.
Microneedling can change this.


Microneedling is effective in reducing the appearance of sun damage, particularly hyperpigmentation and age spots. If you have a blotchy, brownish complexion, which is probably a result of too many days of sunning, microneedling and its ability to stimulate new collagen and skin cells can
reinvigorate your look and even out your tone.


Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, it's also super effective in addressing acne and other scars on your skin. The only type of scar not possible to treat is keloid,
or raised, scars.

Pre-treatment care

1-2 weeks prior

Do not use topical agents that may increase the sensitivity of your skin such as retinoids, exfoliants, topical antibiotics or acids 5-7 days prior to your treatment. Avoid IPL/Laser procedures, unprotected sun exposure, or sunburn for at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure. No waxing, depilatory creams, or electrolysis to the area being treated for 5-7 days prior.  


Do not take anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin, or Advil prior to your microneedling session. These will interfere with the natural inflammatory process that is critical for your skin rejuvenation. Do not shave the day of the procedure to avoid skin irritation. Come to your appointment with clean, makeup free skin.

post treatment care

day of treatment

A sunburn-like effect is normal. Your skin may feel tight, dry or sensitive to touch. Treat the skin gently by washing it with a gentle cleanser, cool water, and using only your hands to pat dry no earlier than 4 hours after treatment.

2-5 days after

Peeling may start 3-5 days after the treatment. You’ll notice skin dryness and flaking which is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. DO NOT pick, scratch, or scrub at treated skin! Keep skin moisturized.

5-7 days after

You may start your regular skin care products again, once your skin no longer feels irritated. Most of our patients have noticed continued skin improvement over the months following their last treatment.
