Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a popular aesthetic treatment that remarkably improves fine lines and acne scars while providing a more youthful appearance. Dr. Yael Halaas, a highly trained and experienced facial plastic surgeon, specializes in microneedling at her New York City practice. During treatment, SkinPen is used to generate micro-injuries beneath the skin, which activates the body’s natural healing process. Collagen induction therapy is a safe way to address wrinkles, scarring and additional skin concerns. Furthermore, it rejuvenates the skin without the hassle of downtime or a long recovery period. This minimally invasive procedure shrinks pores, combats signs of aging and creates younger, firmer looking skin.

How does SkinPen Microneedling work?
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.
Your Microneedling Treatment Session
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.
Recovery and Results
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.
