How does SkinPen Microneedling work?

The microneedles in the device pierce the skin, triggering the body’s natural immune system to get to work on healing the skin. Blood flow to the region is increased, and new skin cells produced. The new skin cells include collagen, the natural firming, smoothing proteins that create a firm, supple quality.

New tiny blood vessels develop, delivering nutrients to the skin for improved health and glow. As the microchannels are healed with cell growth and blood vessels, the skin becomes stronger, healthier, and smoother.

Who is a candidate for SkinPen Microneedling?

Most people are good candidates for a SkinPen treatment. Your results can be enhanced with PRP, or platelet rich plasma, for a truly exceptional improvement in skin quality. If you have any of the following skin conditions, SkinPen Microneedling in Phoenix could be the ideal way to enhance your skin:

  • Acne-scarred skin
  • Uneven skin texture or tone
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Sagging skin
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Enlarged pores

PRP microneedling with SkinPen

The combination of SkinPen Microneedling and PRP can produce remarkable improvements in skin quality. In this procedure, a small sample of blood is drawn and then processed to concentrate the growth factors. This serum is applied to the skin after microneedling, flowing into the skin through the tiny channels, triggering more extensive healing and regeneration.

What is the recovery time?

The recovery from microneedling generally takes about 24 hours, although everyone is different. You may see pinpoint spots where the needles entered the skin, which disappear quickly. Initially, the facial skin will appear red, as if sunburned, and may feel tight or sensitive. If the skin around your eyes was treated, you may have minor bruising, which can be hidden with makeup.

Avoid vigorous exercise for 24 to 48 hours. In about two days, your skin may feel dry, and flake, indicating cell turnover. Apply a hydrating moisturizer. Do not rub or scrub your skin or use any exfoliating products. Ensure you wear sunscreen when out of doors.

Hair restoration with SkinPen Microneedling

If your hair is thinning, and losing its luster, appearing dull and dry, the underlying reason can be reduced blood flow to the hair-producing follicles. SkinPen microneedling on your scalp can help the hair follicles rejuvenate, as a new network of tiny blood vessels forms, and fresh cells develop.
