SkinPen Microneedling

At Nouveau Medspas, we use SkinPen, the first microneedling device to be cleared by the FDA.

WHAT IS SKINPEN MICRONEEDLING?

At Nouveau Medspas, we use SkinPen, the first microneedling device to be cleared by the FDA. SkinPen treats skin imperfections on all skin types without surgery or extensive downtime, and restores a more radiant, youthful appearance.* With a short-treatment plan in place, you can improve your skin and boost your confidence!*

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation. By creating controlled micro-channels in skin tissue, these treatments encourage the body’s natural healing cascade to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne scars and stretch marks, and improve hyperpigmentation.*

HOW DOES SKINPEN WORK?

SkinPen increases the production of collagen and elastin, and establishes new blood vessels in the treated areas.* Collagen, elastin and healthy blood vessels are the building blocks of strong, unblemished skin. SkinPen uses tiny, fine needles to repeatedly penetrate the skin layer, creating micro-injuries. Treatments minimize cellular damage and remodel scar tissue, all while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. The SkinPen handheld microneedling device can safely and effectively be used on the face, neck, back, arms and hands.

After the treatment, there are 3 phases to your body’s wound-repair process:

  1. Inflammation: piercing the skin triggers the immune system to disinfect wounds, increase blood flow and remove debris. New tissue is created.
  2. Proliferation: wounds are rebuilt with healthy, new cells and a new network of blood vessels is developed.
  3. Remodeling: wounds are replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?

When you come into Nouveau Medspas for your treatment, Dr. Rubin will apply a numbing agent to the areas that you are looking to address. The numbing agent will help to keep you comfortable, and most patients only report feeling a slight vibration from the SkinPen device. The pen-like device (hence the name) has a sterile cartridge-tip with 12 micro-needles.The device is gently pressed across your skin, gliding over the entire treatment area(s).

The small, fine needles will create the micro-injuries, triggering your body’s wound-repair process. The procedure usually takes 30 minutes, though the actual time will depend on the size of the treatment area. During the post-treatment phase, we will apply a hydrogel to help your skin hold in moisture.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE RESULTS?

*Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.

Following treatments, you may notice immediate improved texture of your skin.* Further results are usually seen after any redness and swelling diminishes, usually 1-2 days. After the procedure, your skin will appear pink or red, similar to a mild sunburn. Some patients may experience rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, tenderness and burning.* These side effects usually resolve within a few days and without any complications.

Three treatments are usually recommended to get the best possible results, and maintenance treatments every 6-12 months may be necessary.* Some deeper conditions, such as acne scars, may require 6 or more treatments. There is no downtime following treatment, so you can immediately resume your normal routine.
