Microneedling, often referred to as micropenning, is the latest in skin revitalization. This new, innovative treatment is a safe alternative to common skin resurfacing tools, such as lasers and dermal rollers, and has minimal to no downtime!
Micro-needling not only helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also has 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, we offer complimentary consultations in our clinics throughout Northern California and metro Seattle. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of micro-needling (or micropenning), book your appointment online or call us at (855) 383-7546.
What Is Microneedling (Micropenning) & How Does It Work?
During your micropenning 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.
The skin’s repair process results in improved texture and softer wrinkles. Micro-needling 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.
The SkinSpirit Experience
At SkinSpirit, we offer micro-needling to customers throughout the San Francisco Bay area and metro Seattle. Treatment areas include the face, neck and décolleté.
Here’s what you can expect during your appointment:
- Your aesthetician will apply a thick layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs.
- 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.
- This repair process begins almost immediately.
Depending on the size of the treatment area, a microneedling treatment can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Most people can return to their normal, daily activities immediately after treatment.
Most people can return to their normal, daily activities immediately after their micro-needling 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:
- Wrinkle reduction
- Texture and tone improvement
- Softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging
- Acne scar and traumatic scar improvement
New collagen production also reverses 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.
