SkinPen microneedling is a cosmetic procedure used for skin rejuvenation. Microneedling treats acne scars and numerous signs of skin aging using the SkinPen, a medical-grade skin-treatment device. When it comes to SkinPen microneedling, Bellevue patients come to Yarrow Bay Plastic Surgery for safe and effective treatment sessions.
What Is SkinPen Microneedling?
As people grow older, many signs of aging will become noticeable on their skin, including fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, and stretch marks. Acne scars also often appear during adolescence and into adulthood. SkinPen microneedling addresses these skin issues.
How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
SkinPen microneedling uses a state-of-the-art handheld device to create hundreds of microscopic controlled wounds in the skin tissues. This stimulates elastin and collagen production, not only healing the skin but also reducing signs of aging and acne scars. The results of SkinPen microneedling are far better than at-home microneedling devices.
SkinPen microneedling is appropriate for patients looking to treat their fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, stretch marks, or acne scars. Candidates must have no active acne conditions. Candidates must also be generally healthy and must have no healing issues. The best candidates are committed to maintaining proper skincare after their SkinPen microneedling treatment.
Your SkinPen Microneedling Consultation
During your consultation, we will listen to your goals and concerns about SkinPen microneedling. Let us know if you have tried other skin-rejuvenation treatments or home remedies.
We will evaluate your medical history to make sure that SkinPen microneedling is safe for you. We will examine the areas you are concerned about and customize the best treatment plan for you. Additionally, we will help you prepare for the treatment session and address all your questions.
Yaicha Tinker, Master Esthetician at Yarrow Bay Plastic Surgery, discusses why you should consider microneedling sooner rather than later.
The SkinPen Microneedling Treatment Session
SkinPen microneedling treatment sessions usually last half an hour or less depending on the targeted skin areas. To make the treatment comfortable for the patient, a customized topical numbing cream will be applied on the targeted areas. The SkinPen handheld device will be moved across the target areas evenly according to the treatment plan.
The number of SkinPen microneedling sessions needed will depend on the goals of the patient; the treatment plan will usually involve three to six treatments, with an interval of a month or a month and a half between treatment sessions.
After Your SkinPen Microneedling Treatment Session
The patient can go home after the SkinPen microneedling treatment. Although no recovery period will be necessary, the patient will experience temporary redness and swelling in the treatment areas for the first few days. Skincare instructions will be provided to aid in healing and maximize the results.
SkinPen Microneedling Cost
The cost of SkinPen microneedling may be affected by the size of the treatment areas. The overall price of the treatment may also be impacted by the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the goals of the patient.
