Micropenning in Bellevue, WA
Improve texture and tone while reducing wrinkles
What Is Micro-Penning?
Micro-penning is one of our favorite skincare treatment at SkinSpirit Bellevue 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!
How It Works
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.
We 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 Bellevue-area clients 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!
The SkinSpirit Experience
When you visit us for micro-needling or micro-penning in Bellevue, 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 before you even step foot in the clinic!
Then, when you arrive at SkinSpirit Bellevue on treatment day, you can expect the procedure to look a little something like this:
- 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 micropenning or microneedling treatment at SkinSpirit Bellevue 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 micro-penning treatment ranging from:
- 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.
