Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation therapy that is also called collagen induction therapy. This procedure stimulates the production of collagen and generates new skin tissue. This makes the skin smoother, firmer and improves the tone and texture. Best results are seen when completing a series of 3 treatments that are spaced 4 weeks apart.
This procedure is great for people who suffer with acne scars (including ice pick scars), sun damage, uneven skin tone, large pores, post inflammatory pigmentation and skin laxity. The treatment can be done if you’re having an active breakout as your medical provider will avoid those areas. If you are having a large breakout, it is recommended to wait until you get your acne more under control to do this procedure.
A highly effective skincare procedure which stimulates the skins production of collagen and elastin used to correct acne scars, fine lines, uneven texture and pore size. Recommended in a series of 3 spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results.

Using ones own platelet rich plasma (obtained by a quick blood draw) in conjunction with microneedling creates more dramatic, quicker results by using your bodies own growth factors to promote healing and cellular regeneration.
Q: Does microneedling hurt?
Most people rate the procedure as a 3 out of 10 on a pain scale (0 being no pain, 10 being extreme pain). We use topical numbing prior to the microneedling to make it as comfortable as possible.
Q: What are the effects immediately after treatment?
Immediately after your SkinPen procedure you will experience redness, pinpoint bleeding, minimal swelling and you may feel like you have a mild sunburn. All of these effects are a normal response post procedure. This is considered a minimal downtime procedure, you may resume normal daily activity the following day and any residual redness may be covered with makeup.
