Why We Love Micro-Penning at SkinSpirit

Micro-penning is the latest advancement in skin revitalization and also the newest skincare treatment available at SkinSpirit. This innovative treatment is an alternative to other skin resurfacing tools such as lasers and dermal rollers.

During treatment, the cordless, automated micro-penning device utilizes medical-grade stainless steel needles to create microscopic injuries to the skin, which in turn, encourages natural production of collagen and elastin during the healing process. This repair process results in improved texture and softer wrinkles. Depending on the size of the treatment area, a micro-penning treatment can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Treatment areas include the face, neck and décolleté. Most people return to their normal, daily activities immediately after treatment.

A Q&A with Master Aesthetician, Karen Fernandez

We recently had a chance to talk about micro-penning with Karen Fernandez, SkinSpirit's Director of Aesthetics. Karen filled us in on why she loves micro-penning, what kind of results clients can expect and who she thinks makes a good candidate for this type of treatment.

SS: What do you love about micro-penning?
KF: I love that micro-penning works so well on every skin type, for all ages and for all skin conditions. I recommend micro-penning to my clients who want to take their skin to the next level. The micro channels created in the skin by micro-penning help enhance all other skincare treatments received and allow the skincare products our clients use to be more effective.

SS: What kind of results can clients expect from this treatment?
KF: Micro-penning reduces the look of pores, making the skin appear more vibrant and healthy. It also helps correct discoloration and acne pigment scars. The treatment time for micro-penning is quick and has very little downtime. The treatment itself is relatively painless, especially when done with topical numbing cream.

SS: Who makes a perfect candidate for micro-penning?
KF: Anyone who wants his or her skin to look brighter, clearer, firmer and more even is a perfect candidate for micro-penning. Even sensitive and thick skin types can tolerate this treatment because no heat or chemicals are used. Clients with open wounds or active acne on their skin will need to wait until their skin is healthy before having a micro-penning treatment.
