The Miracle of Microneedling

Improving your skin’s appearance, texture, or quality doesn’t always have to include procedures that involve excessive downtime or a lengthy recovery period. In the past, surgeries and other aggressive treatments were the only options for improving skin issues like acne scars, discoloration, or early signs of aging. Now, SkinPen microneedling can enhance your facial complexion, reduce the appearance of acne scars, soften wrinkles, and improve skin tone — all without surgical intervention.

How SkinPen Microneedling Transforms the Skin

SkinPen is a microneedling device that has been clinically proven to improve neckline wrinkles, acne marks, dull skin tone and texture, and skin’s overall appearance for patients in their 20s and older. SkinPen microneedling treatments involve three sessions spaced 30 days apart, and involve an advanced tool that creates thousands of microscopic wounds on the skin’s surface.

These tiny injuries act as channels that stimulate the body’s natural healing response while keeping cellular damage to a minimum. They also allow your skin care products to penetrate more fully and provide comprehensive benefits. Microneedling can repair and rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.

Why We Love SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen microneedling has become our patients’ favorite option for facial rejuvenation due to benefits like these.

  • No downtime: SkinPen microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure. Patients heal quickly and can immediately resume activities like work and household chores. This treatment is ideal for people who don’t have time to miss work for a surgical recovery period.
  • Versatility: Microneedling can simultaneously address many skin concerns, including wrinkles, skin tone irregularities, acne scars, sunspots, skin laxity, stretch marks, and scarring.
  • Long-lasting results: By boosting collagen production, this treatment produces results that last for a long time, often months and even years after your treatment.
  • Pairs well with other treatments: Microneedling can complement other non-surgical procedures like Botox® and dermal fillers for even more comprehensive results.

What to Expect During and After SkinPen Microneedling

We perform minimally invasive microneedling at our beautiful Newport Beach medical spa. Before your procedure, you’ll meet with an experienced member of our team to talk about your skin care concerns and goals and ensure this treatment is the right choice for you. We’re happy to answer any questions you have.

After thoroughly cleansing your skin to remove dirt, oil, makeup, and bacteria, your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure you have a comfortable experience. Once this product has taken effect, your provider will carefully move the microneedling device across the treatment area, allowing small needles to precisely pierce your skin in the desired areas. To conclude your microneedling session, we will wash your skin again, then apply a topical medication or serum to help speed the healing process.

Each SkinPen microneedling session typically takes around 30 minutes to complete, with minimal need for aftercare. We recommend following your usual skin care regimen, limit sun exposure, and use sunscreen while healing. You are free to resume work and other activities immediately.
