SkinPen microneedling is helping many people to get skin they never thought they could have after years of living with acne scars, uneven skin tone, and poor skin texture. This procedure can reduce the appearance of acne scars, even out your skin tone, improve skin texture, and enhance skin’s firmness. The secret behind why SkinPen is so effective rests in its ability to trigger the body’s own natural collagen production to get your skin back to its days of constantly regenerating fresh “baby” skin.

Why Is Microneedling Good for Your Skin?

Microneedling works by safely creating micro-injuries in the skin that prompt the skin’s natural healing mechanisms. This healing process also increases the skin’s production of collagen to increase skin plumpness, firmness, and smoothness through new cell turnover. Beauty Refined is proud to offer SkinPen treatments for clients throughout the Denver area at our state-of-the-art clinic in Greenwood Village, Colorado. Take a look at everything there is to know about using SkinPen to improve the appearance of your skin!

What Is SkinPen Microneedling?

SkinPen is an FDA-approved, clinically proven treatment for facial acne scars for people ages 22 and up. While people primarily use SkinPen to treat acne scarring, it can be used to create smoother, firmer skin for people who don’t struggle with acne issues.

SkinPen is common used for:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Poor skin texture
  • Skin scarring

While SkinPen can create powerful results, it is considered a noninvasive treatment. SkinPen is uniquely designed to accelerate the skin’s natural repair process by creating microscopic channels in the skin. As your body rapidly produces new skin cells to heal the hundreds of harmless abrasions that are made, collagen production ramps up to leave you with “new” skin that is firmer, softer, and brighter. In addition to activating your skin’s regenerative properties, the small abrasions that are created also allow the serum that is applied during treatment to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin for more powerful results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Prior to your SkinPen treatment, you’ll have a consultation to discuss your “skin story” to confirm that you’re an ideal candidate for SkinPen. While SkinPen is generally considered to be an appropriate choice for all skin types, you may want to avoid this treatment while in the middle of an active acne breakout to avoid creating further irritation. We’ll also discuss a long-term plan for scheduling the right amount of appointments at correct intervals to maximize your results.

Most SkinPen treatment sessions take about an hour. A topical numbing agent will be applied to increase your comfort. While SkinPen isn’t considered painful, the abrasive nature of the treatment can cause some slight discomfort. During treatment, the 12 microneedles attached to the motorized SkinPen device will puncture the skin at optimal speeds and depths based on your specific goals. Hyaluronic acid and vitamin C serum can be used to enhance your results.

Following a SkinPen treatment, it’s common to experience some redness and swelling for 24 to 48 hours. Skin may also feel dry after treatment. Many clients say that recovering from SkinPen feels like having mild sunburn. While you can generally return to your normal routine within 24 hours of your SkinPen treatment, it’s best to avoid scheduling a SkinPen appointment immediately before an important event to ensure that you have enough time for redness and swelling to fully subside.

It’s very common for patients to notice that their skin looks plumper and firmer immediately following a SkinPen treatment. This is largely due to the increase in blood flow caused by your body’s response to the micro-injuries that were created from SkinPen abrasions. While you may enjoy the fresher look that happens right away, this is not the final result. SkinPen treatments can take between four and six weeks to begin producing noticeable results simply because this is how long it takes to see the results of increased collagen production. The full “transformation” from SkinPen often peaks at around six months.

The Beauty Refined team can help you to determine your optimal session frequency based on your personalized goals. Generally, we’ll recommend that you schedule your appointments four to six weeks apart during a period lasting six months to help create optimal results. Giving your body a chance to heal between treatments can help to produce beautiful results with minimal irritation. Some clients like to combine SkinPen microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments for greater collagen production that creates more dramatic results. Combining SkinPen with other treatments is something that we’ll happily discuss with you during your consultation!
