As the only FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen offers a variety of benefits with impressive results. The advantages of collagen induction therapy begin with a clearer complexion and include the following benefits as well:
SkinPen Microneedling is a unique device outfitted with 14 surgical steel needles. When operated by a licensed medical professional, SkinPen navigates gently across the skin to promote new collagen and elastic production. Dr. Halaas, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, offers a completely customized microneedling treatment that addresses your precise skin concerns, while aiming to achieve your aesthetic goals as well. As the SkinPen operates it initiates the body’s natural wound response, instantly boosting blood flow while causing collagen and elastin production. The SkinPen encourages the growth of firmer, tighter and healthier dermal tissue, paving the way for a clear complexion after only a few treatments.
SkinPen can be used on any area of the body: face, neck, chest, arms, hands, leg, abdomen and back.
During a SkinPen microneedling treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to promote comfort throughout the 30-minute session. The treatment generally feels like sandpaper being glossed across the skin and is typically well tolerated by patients. Most of our clients enjoy beautiful results after only 3 treatments, while others require additional care for deep scars and severe wrinkles.
After a SkinPen microneedling treatment, patients may experience slight swelling and redness, similar to the sensation of a sunburn. Dr. Halaas applies a nutrient rich solution to promote optimal healing and achieve remarkable results. Depending on the number of overlapping passes performed, healing may occur in just 24 hours. Throughout the weeks and months to follow, new collagen and elastin production contribute to a glowing, clear complexion. Full results are experienced within just 6 months.
