What is SkinPen microneedling?

SkinPen is the first microneedling device approved by the FDA to reduce the appearance of facial acne scars. SkinPen microneedling creates micro-injuries to trigger natural collagen and elastin production deep within the skin layers to smooth and firm damaged, crepey, or aging skin. Microneedling with SkinPen can enhance skin quality, firmness, and smooth visible lines and wrinkles for a fresh, youthful glow.

What is microneeding with SkinPen like to experience?

SkinPen treatments are easy to experience, and extremely effective. If your skin has begun looking dull or is losing its supple, firm, youthful look, a short appointment at NYBG Plastic Surgery can produce a truly remarkable level of natural regeneration. This non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment can help you maintain smoother, younger-looking skin far longer than nature intended. The treatment requires little time, and has the following steps:

  • You will be ushered into one of our comfortable, private treatment rooms.
  • Our skincare expert will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort.
  • The SkinPen device will be passed over the areas that require rejuvenation, creating micro-injuries.
  • Your SkinPen microneedling treatment is relatively painless and easy to experience.

What can SkinPen microneedling do for me?

Microneedling with SkinPen is termed “collagen induction therapy,” as the treatment stimulates natural collagen and elastin growth deep within the skin layers – where it matters. As your skin produces more of these critical skin-firming fibers, your skin quality restores, becoming more supple, smooth, and youthful. If you struggle with any of the following skin problems, you can experience an extraordinary level of skin rejuvenation with this treatment. SkinPen microneedling can dramatically improve any of the following skin problems:

  • Acne scars
  • Lines, wrinkles, creases
  • Dull, lackluster skin
  • Aging skin
  • Crepey skin
  • Stretch marks

SkinPen FAQ

Is SkinPen a better type of microneedling?

SkinPen microneedling is a medical grade, FDA-approved, state-of-the-art microneedling system. The device creates microchannels at varying depths to achieve superior results in skin rejuvenation on face, neck, décolletage, legs, abdomen or any area of the body. The treatment is versatile and allows you to undergo a fully-customized skin regeneration treatment, perfect for any area of the face or body. It will not affect the epidermis (surface layer of the skin) and is appropriate for all skin types and colors.

What is “collagen induction therapy?”

Collagen induction therapy is the process of treating the skin with very tiny needles to create micro-injuries – channels in the skin so tiny that they are invisible to the naked eye. The body responds to these micro-injuries by signaling the fibroblasts (cells in the connective tissue in the body that produce collagen and other fibers) to get to work producing more more collagen, which naturally firms and tightens aging or damaged skin.

How many SkinPen treatments will I need?

To achieve the maximum improvement in skin quality, firmness, tone, and texture, most people undergo from four to six treatments, spaced about three to six weeks apart. Maintenance treatments once or twice a year will keep your skin looking fresh, firm, and youthful.

How long will it take for me to see results?

As your skin requires time to produce the skin-firming collagen and elastin, your results will develop over time. The initial improvements become visible in about one week, and continue to improve for up to three months, with your skin becoming smoother, refreshed, and supple. Deep acne scars can be significantly improved with this treatment.

How much does SkinPen microneedling cost?

The cost of treatment varies, based upon the areas of your face and body treated. For a custom quote, we invite you to schedule a private consultation with one of our skincare experts.
