What is SkinPen® Microneedling?
Collagen is an important part of young, healthy skin because the protein gives tissues shape and structure. Collagen is found in almost every tissue in your body. As part of the aging process, our bodies produce less collagen, and this creates an imbalance in which you are losing more collagen than what is being replenished. In terms of the skin, this translates into wrinkles, sagging and other issues. SkinPen® microneedling using a unique approach to stimulate natural collagen production.

How Does SkinPen® Microneedling Work?
Microneedling with SkinPen® works by leveraging your body’s healing process. When you suffer an injury to your skin, the body responds by filling in the area with collagen fibers. SkinPen® is a device that is designed with a series of very fine needles that penetrate the outer layers of skin to form micro-channels. Your body interprets these micro-channels as new miniature injuries and produces more collagen in the area.
What Results Can I Expect?
Peak collagen production can take several weeks, so you will notice a gradual improvement in skin texture and color. Because the changes are so subtle, we often recommend that our patients take photos at home for comparison.
