WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and acne scars in patients. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence. Microneedling creates thousands of microchannels 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.
The production of collagen and elastin naturally diminish as we get older leaving behind wrinkles, skin laxity and other aging signs. Trouvaille Med Spa’s SkinPen Microneedling treatment will stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. This medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool addresses any scars or symptoms of aging that you may have. This treatment is highly effective in reducing any signs of aging and enhancing your skin’s appearance. It can also be used to decrease the appearance of stretch marks on the body.
Everyone’s skin is different. Therefore, procedure requirements and results will vary. A Trouvaille Med Spa skin specialist will review with you the goals or achievements you would like to obtain to develop an individual treatment plan for you. We recommend multiple sessions to achieve optimal microneedling results, but you may notice changes after one week. If you have uneven skin tones or fine lines, you may see results after just one procedure. Patients looking to lessen the appearance of acne scars may require several procedures.
After a microneedling treatment, it will feel something like a mild sunburn with some redness, tenderness and possible swelling. There is no real downtime after the procedure. You will be able to return to normal activities immediately and after 24 hours, you can cover any mild side effects with make-up.
FAQs for Microneedling
HOW DOES IT WORK?
SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
IS MICRONEEDLING PAINFUL?
Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
SkinPen® micro needling procedures are brief. This procedure is gentler than most alternatives, so it may take more than one session to achieve optimal results. Results may become visible after one procedure. It is recommended that appointments are scheduled about a month apart, to give the skin time to rest and heal in between.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AFTER MICRONEEDLING?
Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a few hours. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment.
