Microneedling is a marginally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, and it helps minimize the signs of aging. In addition, it is a very safe procedure. The SkinPen Microneedling treatment is the first FDA-cleared microneedling advice. It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. Both found naturally in the skin, collagen and elastin help give skin a healthy glow and a more youthful appearance. Collagen is the scaffolding or structure of your skin and renewing collagen helps skin. The micro-channels created by the pen also allow the skin to better absorb topical creams, gels, and serums.
The SkinPen can treat any area on the body, including the face, hands, arms, abdomen, etc. It works on both fine lines and wrinkles as well as deeper wrinkles and scars, though these conditions may require additional treatment sessions.
Common conditions treated by the SkinPen include:
Tired, dull skin
Based on your needs, the SkinPen typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour for full treatment. To keep you comfortable during the treatment, your provider can apply a topical anesthetic before the treatment.
The most dramatic results with the SkinPen take place in about four to six weeks after treatment, and most people only need one or two sessions. The side effects include mild swelling and redness for two to four days, but some people heal completely in 24 hours.
Use a skincare regimen advised by your provider to give your skin the care and nutrients it needs for healing and restoration after microneedling.

Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
