Frequently Asked Questions


Is the SkinPen the same as Microneedling?

What does it feel like?

The unique design of the SkinPen allows for individualized settings, making the treatment amazingly comfortable for most patients. You may feel vibrations from the SkinPen.

How long does the procedure take?

After I hour with topical anesthetic, the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated and the severity of the damage on the skin.

When will I see the results?

Most patients notice healthier-looking skin immediately. Within 12-24 hours, your skin should fade from red to pink, and the swelling should go down. A week after the Microneedling procedure, most patients notice that their skin is smoother and more radiant. The natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Keep in mind dermal collagen remodelling takes place over time. It is not realistic to expect damage that has occurred over an extended period to disappear immediately. You may not see the final result until up to 6 months following your final session.

How many treatments will I need?

It is recommended to have 3 treatments, one 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, and acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
