FAQs: SkinPen microneedling in Provo, Utah at Genesis Medical Aesthetics
How does SkinPen work?
The SkinPen microneedling device penetrates the skin with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries. These micro-injuries trigger your skin’s natural healing response and spur the production of new collagen and elastin for a wide range of benefits.
How is the SkinPen microneedling treatment performed?
Before your treatment, our skin care professionals will apply a thin layer of numbing cream to ensure a comfortable and pain-free treatment. Our professionals will then choose the appropriate microneedling treatment depth based on your unique needs and skin condition. Once the treatment area is numb, the microneedling wand is applied to the skin, creating thousands of micro channels. These micro channels, or “controlled injuries,” trigger your skin’s natural healing response, stimulating the growth of radiant new collagen and elastin for smoother, more youthful looking skin. Treatments typically take about 30 minutes.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the SkinPen setting used and the number of passes your skin care professional performs. On average, the redness lasts roughly two days, but many patients heal 24 hours following their treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your skin goals, you may only require a single treatment. However, we typically recommend three to four treatments, spaced roughly six to eight weeks apart for optimal results.
When will I see results from SkinPen?
Results can usually be seen as soon as one to three days after treatment, with benefits improving as long as six months after your last treatment, as the skin naturally heals, and new collagen and elastin is produced.
How long with my results last?
You can enjoy your results for the long-term as long as you are careful to properly protect your skin by regularly using broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
