What is a

SkinPen?

If fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, hyperpigmentation or other skin concerns have you turning to ineffective, expensive topical treatments, SkinPen could be the solution you’re looking for. The innovative microneedling procedure is a minimally invasive way to rejuvenate the skin from head to toe with little to no downtime. It’s safe and effective on all skin types and can be used on almost any area of the body, including the face and neck. Since SkinPen relies on straight, single-use, adjustable needles, it has an edge over other microneedling techniques.

Dr. Jung can customize the treatment for the best possible results and maximum precision. The device makes hundreds of controlled, microscopic skin punctures, or micro injuries, in the targeted area to stimulate the skin’s natural self-repair process, which involves producing new collagen and elastin. As skin cell turnover occurs, the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation are reduced, enlarged pores are diminished, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out and skin is more even, supple and youthful looking.

Considerations

At your consultation, Dr. Jung will assess your skin and treatment goals to determine if you’re a good candidate for the SkinPen procedure. While the technique isn’t painful and most patients report a mild sensation, if you’re worried about discomfort, Dr. Jung can apply a topical numbing agent. He’ll then move the pen across your skin in the area being treated. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes to an hour. Afterwards, Dr. Jung will apply a soothing moisturizer. It usually takes between three and six sessions spaced four to six weeks apart to see optimal results.

Pre- + Post-

Procedure Care

Prior to your procedure, your skin will need to be clean and free of makeup, lotion, sunscreen and other skincare products. Post procedure, your skin may be slightly swollen and red, similar to how it looks after a mild to moderate sunburn. This typically subsides within a few days. Any residual pink areas can be easily concealed with makeup after the first 24 hours. Dr. Jung will recommend a skincare regimen to follow after your session in order to enhance the effects and speed up healing. Patients generally see results in a week and as healthy, new skin cells form, the appearance of the skin will continue to improve gradually.
