Microneedling is a quite the buzzword among beauty gurus, and for good reason. This treatment can stimulate the skin’s natural healing response and enhance your overall look.

Read below to learn how this remarkable tool may be able to help you achieve smoother, more even colored skin. If you would like to schedule a consultation to find out if SkinPen® microneedling is right for you, contact us today.
Microneedling involves the use of perforating the skin with tiny needles. It creates temporary, micro-sized openings that stimulate your body’s natural healing process, which allows it to reduce or correct a number of skin imperfections. Some of the things that SkinPen® can accomplish include:
Dr. Moosavi and our team want patients to be as comfortable as possible during their treatments, so you can expect us to go the extra mile to help you feel relaxed and at-home in our medspa. We may use a topical numbing agent to prepare you for your SkinPen® session so you feel as little as possible while the device is working.
Each session may take around one hour (depending on which area of the body we are treating). Afterward, some redness is normal, and some patients experience just a tiny bit of pinpoint bleeding. Overall, most patients find that the experience is much more comfortable than they anticipated! There is no major downtime required, and any redness should disappear within a few days.
You might see initial results after just one session, but for most patients, at least 2 or 3 sessions spaced about a month apart are necessary.
Some of the top benefits of SkinPen® treatment include:
SkinPen® is a great choice for almost anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin. However, it shouldn’t be used on areas that have an active infection, acne, or wound.
