What is microneedling?

Aging gracefully involves taking care of your skin. Factors such as time, sun exposure, and genetics can lead to the development of fine lines, sagging skin, and stretch marks. Acne scars may have left the skin surface unevenly textured and toned. Microneedling can treat these concerns, offering a rejuvenated complexion. At The Spa at Yarrow Bay, our patients have experienced beautiful improvements in skin quality, firmness, and tone.

How does microneedling restore skin quality?

The unique feature of SkinPen is its ability to initiate a controlled micro-injury mechanism. As the device navigates over the skin, it creates minuscule punctures. This, in turn, amplifies elastin and collagen production, leading to skin repair and a significant reduction in signs of aging and scars. The precision and efficacy of SkinPen surpass the results of at-home microneedling kits.

Are you a candidate for microneedling?

SkinPen microneedling can work magic if you are plagued by wrinkles, stretch marks, lax skin, or acne scars. However, ensuring patient safety remains paramount. Ideal candidates should:

  • Be in overall good health.
  • Have no active acne.
  • Be committed to post-treatment skincare.

The science behind microneedling and skin rejuvenation

Collagen, a pivotal protein in our skin, is crucial in maintaining its elasticity and youthfulness. Over time, collagen production dwindles, leading to the emergence of wrinkles and fine lines. Microneedling, or “collagen induction therapy,” boosts natural collagen production by inducing a controlled injury mechanism in the skin. The body’s natural response to repair these micro-injuries culminates in increased collagen and elastin synthesis.

Can you undergo microneedling on other body areas?

While facial rejuvenation remains the most common application, SkinPen microneedling is not confined to the face alone. It’s versatile and can be employed on various body parts like the neck, décolletage, arms, or abdomen. This adaptability makes it possible to treat stretch marks and lax skin on other body areas.

The treatment – what to expect?

Typically a 30-minute treatment, your microneedling session will be customized for comfort. After applying a numbing cream, the SkinPen device is applied to the areas requiring cell regeneration. Depending on individual goals, a series of three to six sessions, spaced approximately four to six weeks apart, often achieves optimal results.

What is the recovery time?

Post-session, it is normal to experience mild redness and swelling, like a sunburn, which usually subsides within a few days. A tailored skincare regime can help speed healing and enhance the outcome.

One of the standout advantages of microneedling is the minimal downtime post-procedure.

Unlike some more comprehensive laser treatments, microneedling allows you to return to your daily activities relatively quickly. While there might be transient redness, this fades rapidly. By adhering to the post-treatment guidelines, like avoiding direct sun exposure and using quality sunscreen, patients can ensure a smooth and swift recovery.

How much does microneedling cost?

The pricing for SkinPen microneedling hinges on the treatment area’s size and the number of sessions essential for realizing your aesthetic vision.
