Micro-needling in Salt Lake City

Improve texture and tone while reducing wrinkles

What Is Micro-Penning?

At SkinSpirit Salt Lake City, we love micro-penning for its ability to instigate the skin’s repair process, resulting in improved texture and softer wrinkles.

What Is Micro-Needling?

If you have deeper scarring and pockmarks, we might recommend micro-needling instead. Microneedling is deeper and more intense than micropenning, yielding greater change in terms of improved and softer wrinkles albeit with a longer recovery time.

We are happy to offer more information during a complimentary consultation at our brand new Salt Lake City location.

How It Works

During your treatment, the 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 Salt Lake City include the face, neck and décolleté.

The SkinSpirit Experience

When you visit us for micro-needling or micro-penning in Salt Lake City, we will start you off with a free consult to make sure your skin is in the best shape possible for treatment. What does that mean? 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 aesthetician 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.

Depending on the size of the treatment area, a micropenning or microneedling treatment at SkinSpirit Salt Lake City can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.

Please note that multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve the best results.

Anticipated Results

Most of our micro-penning clients in Salt Lake City can return to their normal, daily activities immediately after treatment. However, the total healing time does depend on the significance of the procedure. On average, the skin might be pink 1 to 3 days afterwards.

Afterwards, you can enjoy the benefits of micro-needling, such as:

  • 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 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.
