Micro-Needling Procedure Detailed
The SkinPen Micro-needling treatment begins by prepping the skin with a topical numbing agent for 20-30 minutes. After the treated area has been numbed, the skin is cleansed and degreased with Acetone to removed any excess makeup and oils.
To perform the micro-needling treatment, a hyaluronic acid gel is applied to the skin. This is also known as a “slick” which allows the SkinPen to glide smoothly on the skin. While gliding the SkinPen on the skins surface, micro channels are created. These micro channels absorb the hyaluronic acid to boost hydration and fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Micro channels also trigger the healing response to stimulate the production of collagen and rebuild healthy stronger skin.
The end goal of micro-needling is to achieve slight pin point bleeding and even erythema (redness)at the treated area. Once the micro-needling treatment is completed, the skin is cleansed with sterile water and HA Lift and Skin Rescue are applied. The micro channels created remain open for 18-24 hours post treatment. Therefore, no other skin products or makeup should be applied during this time.

Micro-needling also benefits patients who suffer acne scarring by helping breakup the scar tissue underneath the skin and penetrating deep into it.
