Rejuvenate your skin with micro-needling or micro-penning in San Francisco!
Micropenning, or microneedling in its more intense form, is the latest in skin revitalization. These new, innovative facial treatments offer a safe alternative to common skin resurfacing tools, such as lasers and dermal rollers, and come with minimal to no downtime!
Not only can they reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but they also have a positive effect on uneven skin tone and acne scars—improving the skin’s overall appearance to give you a fresher, younger look.
At SkinSpirit in San Francisco, we love micro-penning for its ability to instigate the skin’s repair process, resulting in improved texture and softer wrinkles.
Micro-needling can be a better fit for those with deeper scarring and pockmarks. This treatment is deeper and more intense, yielding greater change in terms of improved and softer wrinkles than micropenning but you may also experience a longer recovery time.
During your microneedling treatment in San Francisco, 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 include the face, neck and décolleté.
When you visit us for micro-needling or micro-penning in San Francisco, 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:
Depending on the size of the treatment area, a micropenning or microneedling treatment can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.
Please note that multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve the best results.
Most of our microneedling clients in San Francisco can return to their normal, daily activities immediately after their treatment. The total healing time depends on the emphasis of the treatment. On average, the skin might be pink 1 to 3 days afterwards. Afterwards, you can enjoy benefits like:
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.
