Restore and revitalize aging skin without the need for surgery with SkinPen. This innovative micro-needling device activates your body’s cellular regeneration process to help lift and tighten the skin while smoothing out wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars to give you a healthier, rejuvenated appearance.
SkinPen is an automated microneedling device that creates millions of controlled microchannels to trigger your body’s healing process. This process stimulates new collagen and elasatin, giving your skin a younger, firmer and smoother appearance.
The SkinPen microneedling treatment can be used on all skin types and is a safe and effective way to address a number of skin concerns, including:
Anti-aging facial treatments are extremely popular options, but the SkinPen can address nearly any area of the skin, including the neck, décolletage, hands, arms, legs, abdomen, and back. Treatments are completely customizable to each individual patient’s needs. The depth of the needles can be adjusted, as well as the time they are engaged in the skin to suit your personal goals. As an added bonus, your skincare products like serums and creams will be better absorbed by the skin.
When you arrive for your treatment with Dr. Robinson, your skin will be cleansed and a numbing cream will be applied 30 minutes before your session. Once your skin is ready for treatment, the appropriate needle depth will be selected for the maximum benefit based on your unique situation, and a thin layer of topical Hyaluronic serum will be applied to your skin. The SkinPen will then be moved in a smooth, controlled motion across the skin to create thousands of microscopic channels, activating the body’s own natural healing ability. Depending on your specific needs additional serums may be added to enhance the procedure’s effects even further.
Following your treatment, you’ll notice some redness and mild swelling but that will subside in a day or two. Your skin will then have a healthier, more radiant glow with results continuing to improve over the coming weeks. Individual outcomes may vary but most patients will begin to see the effectiveness of the treatment after their first visit.
However, Dr. Robinson typically recommends a series of three to six SkinPen sessions for the best healing response, depending on your personal needs. Patients who want to treat advanced conditions like very deep wrinkles, accumulated sun damage, stretch marks, and scarring are usually advised to undergo six or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
