How the SkinPen® Microneedling Procedure Works
Immediately following an injury, our skin automatically begins the process of dissolving tissue damage and replacing it with new cells and extracellular material (such as elastin and collagen). Microneedling stimulates the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro injuries in the skin to induce new collagen synthesis.
What to Expect After SkinPen® Procedures
The total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin, the depth of repair process required, and how aggressive the treatment is performed. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.
Many patients notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, dermal collagen remodeling takes place slowly over time. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the complete result for up to 6 months following your final session.
