If you're getting regular facials, and taking care of your skin at home, you may be wondering what else you can be doing to take great care of your skin. Micropenning, or microneeding, is the latest in skin revitalization, and we are excited to offer this innovative facial treatment to our clients at SkinSpirit Redmond. This treatment provides a safe and effective alternative to common skin resurfacing tools, such as lasers and dermal rollers, and comes with minimal to no downtime!
We love it because it 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.
Micro-penning is one of our favorite skincare treatment at SkinSpirit Redmond for its unique ability to instigate the skin’s repair process - resulting in improved texture and softer wrinkles. Our clients love the way their skin looks and feels after treatment, and so do we!
If you've never had micro-penning or micro-needling before, you may be a little anxious about your first treatment. Let us help you ease your concerns. Here's what you can expect from treatment.
Our clinical aestheticians perform treatment using a cordless, fractional, automated microneedling device composed of medical-grade stainless steel. This device creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin, helping it produce collagen and elastin, as well as 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 for our Redmond-area patients often include the face, neck and décolleté. However, smaller treatment areas - such as the brows - can often achieve results visible across the entire face at a lower price tag. Please ask us for recommendations during your consultation!
When you visit us for micro-needling or micro-penning in Redmond, WA, we will begin with a complimentary consultation to make sure your skin is in the best shape possible to get the best results from treatment. We've got some tips to help you get pen-ready on our blog before you even step foot in the clinic!
Here's a step-by-step look at your micro-needling treatment day from there:
Depending on the size of the treatment area, a micropenning or microneedling treatment at SkinSpirit Redmond can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.
Please note that multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve the best results. We will give you our recommendations after an evaluation of your skin type, concerns, and goals.
Most of our clients can return to their normal, daily activities immediately after their micro-penning treatment. The total healing time from there depends on the emphasis of the treatment. But, on average, the skin might be pink 1 to 3 days afterwards.
Once you are healed, you will begin to notice benefits from your SkinSpirit Redmond micro-penning treatment such as
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.
