SkinPen Microneedling

While topical skincare treatments can address some visible signs of aging, they can’t achieve what SkinPen microneedling can. The treatment can stimulate collagen and elastin production and give you dramatic results in only a few sessions. At Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery, we can help you turn back the clock!

What is SkinPen Microneedling?

SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device that uses tiny needles to puncture the skin and create micro-injuries. These injuries start up the body’s wound-healing properties, stimulating collagen and elastin growth and delivering younger-looking and more radiant skin.

The innovative treatment can address:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Skin texture concerns

Who is a Good Candidate for SkinPen Microneedling?

While many patients are good candidates for SkinPen microneedling, it’s not the right treatment for everyone. Some of the qualifications that may make you the ideal candidate for SkinPen microneedling include:

  • Experiencing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and/or skin texture issues
  • Good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Have a positive outlook
  • Are a nonsmoker

It may not be the right treatment for you if:

  • You’re pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You are using Accutane
  • You have active acne or open wounds or sores
  • You have a bleeding disorder

The SkinPen Microneedling

The SkinPen microneedling treatment often begins with the cleansing of the skin and administration of a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. From there, the SkinPen device is applied to the skin. The microneedles pierce the skin, stimulating collagen production and starting up the body’s natural wound-healing abilities. As an outpatient procedure, you will be able to go home right after treatment. 

The whole treatment typically takes between 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area or the number of treatment areas. You will likely need more than one treatment session to achieve optimal results.


After the SkinPen microneedling treatment, you will likely notice some redness, swelling, or inflammation, but these should subside within 24-72 hours after treatment. 

You can return to your normal routine immediately, but you’ll want to avoid hot water, makeup, and harsh cleansers for the first 24 hours. You’ll also want to wait to exfoliate your skin until at least a week after treatment.

Results typically take up to six months after your final treatment session to fully appear.
