What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, stimulates the production of collagen to treat skin issues and help people look younger.
Many different issues can affect the skin, such as wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and loose skin. These skin problems can negatively affect a person’s appearance. Microneedling is a treatment that focuses on collagen production to help correct these skin issues.
Microneedling is also combined with other treatments for anti-aging procedures.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling utilizes the ability of collagen to heal skin imperfections. SkinPen needles are used to create tiny controlled microinjuries in the skin tissues. The new collagen fills in the skin to eliminate wrinkles and other skin issues.
Ideal Candidates for Microneedling
People who have skin issues that cannot be treated by other skin treatments are the best candidates for microneedling. Unlike various other treatments, it is safe for patients with darker skin tones. People with fine lines and wrinkles are ideal candidates for SkinPen microneedling procedure. Patients who have acne scars and enlarged pores are also good candidates.

Your SkinPen Microneedling Session
First, numbing cream or topical anesthesia will be applied so that the patient will be comfortable during the procedure. Next, the SkinPen microneedling handpiece will be placed on the skin. The microneedles in the SkinPen will create very small cuts in the skin. The area will be treated evenly. A calming cream will be used on the treated areas after the procedure.
This procedure typically requires no downtime/recovery time, so you can return to normal activities immediately. The collagen will stimulate the healing process while going about your daily life.
However, there will still be skin pinkness and swelling present for a time. You must avoid heavy sun exposure and wear sunscreen. You will also need to protect your treated skin from getting infected. Refrain from taking a bath or getting in the water in public places like swimming pools, rivers, lakes, and seas to avoid germs.
The Cost of Microneedling
Insurance companies do not cover the cost of microneedling, since it is a purely cosmetic procedure. The treatment may require several sessions, which can affect the overall price.
