What Issues Can Micro-Needling Help Treat?
Our state of the art micro-needling SkinPen can be used for the successful treatment of a variety of indications including acne scars, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, large pores, fine wrinkles, and hair restoration (when combined with platelet-rich plasma). The results are overall younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.*
What is Skinpen® Micro-Needling?
Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface layers of skin, Skinpen® Micro-Needling tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates skin by naturally stimulating collagen production.
How Does Micro-Needling Work?
Microneedling is a holistic approach to skin therapy. Your physiological wound response stimulates new healthy dermal and epidermal tissue growth. Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface layers of skin, the pen creates very small wound patterns and promotes healing to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, lip lines and rosacea.
Is Skinpen® Micro-Needling Painful?
No laser heat is introduced. So unlike fractional laser treatments, IPL, and laser resurfacing, there is minimal downtime, minimal discomfort, and an almost immediate outcome.
This treatment provides dramatic results in collagen stimulation, wrinkle and fine line reduction, pore size reduction, scar and acne scar, pigmentation and stretch mark reduction.
How Many Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?
Some patients need only one treatment to see visible results. Though, most will need a series of treatments spaced 6-12 weeks apart, dependent on the condition to be treated and the desired outcome.
Can You Use PRP with Microneedling Treatments?
When used to infuse PRP (also available at Silk Touch), MicroPen™ enhances the outcome, increases total collagen production and accelerates healing.

The procedure takes about about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the treated area.
What Is The Downtime For Microneedling?
