Say hello to healthier, brighter looking skin with microneedling and micropenning at SkinSpirit Palo Alto.

Microneedling and micropenning offer a safe alternative to common skin resurfacing tools, such as lasers and dermal rollers, not only helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also improving uneven skin tone and acne scars. Bonus: there's minimal to no downtime!

We'd love to have you in for a complimentary consultation! For brightening with less downtime, we suggest micropenning. To address deeper scarring and texture, we suggest microneedling. Let us know what you're looking for! Call (650) 324-9600 for questions or schedule your free microneedling consult online.

What Is Medical Micro-Penning?

At SkinSpirit Palo Alto, we typically recommend micropenning to patients looking for brightening, and improvements in texture and wrinkles. Micro-penning instigates the skin’s repair process, resulting in the production of new collagen - and gorgeous, fresh looking skin!

What Is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needling can be a better fit for those with deeper scarring and pockmarks. This treatment goes deeper into the skin, helping to address these more serious texture concerns better than micropenning. That also means microneedling tends to require a longer recovery time.

Not sure which treatment is best for you? No worries - that's what we've got the experts for! Please call us at (650) 324-9600 to set up a complimentary microneedling consultation at our Palo Alto clinic.

How It Works

During your treatment, a cordless, fractional, automated microneedling device, composed of medical-grade stainless steel, is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, helping it produce collagen and elastin. Micro-penning also creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing their effects in deeper layers of the skin.

Popular treatment areas at SkinSpirit Palo Alto include the face, neck and décolleté.

The SkinSpirit Experience

When you visit us for micro-needling or micro-penning in Palo Alto, CA we will first provide you with a free consult to make sure your skin is in the best shape possible for treatment. We've got some tips to help you get pen-ready on our blog.

Your actual treatment day will then look a little something like this:

  1. Your provider will apply a thick layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs.
  2. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered. This process results in thousands of superficial microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area, stimulating your skin’s natural ability to heal itself.
  3. This repair process begins almost immediately.

You can expect to be in and out of our Palo Alto clinic in 15 to 30 minutes.

Please note that multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve the best results. Your provider can offer more detail during your consultation.

Anticipated Results

After your micropenning appointment, you can typically expect to return to your normal, daily activities right away. Note that the total healing time depends on the emphasis of the treatment. On average, the skin might be pink 1 to 3 days afterwards. Once you start to heal, you'll enjoy benefits like:

  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Texture and tone improvement
  • Softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging
  • Acne scar and traumatic scar improvement

New collagen production significantly improves the look of your skin, combatting the effects of years of sun damage.

Visible changes in the skin can develop over the course of a few days or several weeks after the treatment. Results continue to improve for up to six months after the original treatment, as collagen production continues over time.

As noted above, you tend to notice greater change from micro-needling than micro-penning, but there is a longer recovery time to go along with that.
