SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen

SkinPen in St. Cloud

Microneedling treats many of the same skin concerns as microdermabrasion, but it differs in that it can reach below the skin to generate new collagen and skin tissue. For this reason, it also works better on deeper wrinkles and acne scars, resulting in smoother, firmer and more toned skin. At CentraCare – Midsota Plastic Surgery we use the SkinPen product for best results.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

  • Assist with fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, scars and texture issues.
  • Promote healing without scars.
  • Increase collagen.

How is SkinPen microneedling done?

The microneedling device glides across your skin, gently penetrating the surface layers with tiny holes, while at the same time adding topical nutrients. These microscopic puncture injuries stimulate your body’s healing process, resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin. We also can add your own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to your SkinPen treatment (also known as a “vampire facial or facelift”) for faster healing.

Skin needling therapy is a tolerable treatment for most, but topical numbing may be needed.

What can I expect from microneedling?

Facial redness is common after treatment, but it goes away after 12-48 hours. You can apply makeup the next day. On average, it will take between three and six microneedling sessions to achieve your desired outcome. Once you’ve achieved this outcome, our MedSpa team will advise you on the optimal maintenance schedule to ensure your results last for years to come. Most people can enjoy excellent, long-term results by going in for a microneedling session every 6-12 months.
