Microneedling stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin to help produce healthier, younger-looking skin.
Quinn Medical Day Spa offers microneedling treatments using SkinPen II, an innovative treatment that improves fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and other conditions by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. New collagen and elastin production can help counteract years of sun damage, improve acne scars, and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.
SkinPen II is remarkably effective for:
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Stretch marks
- Lax skin
- Large pores
- Thin skin
One of the most exciting things about SkinPen II is that it can be used on all types of skin for a wide range of problems, including acne scars and any area requiring cell regeneration or an intense repair process.
SkinPen II is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes SkinPen II especially helpful when addressing acne scars and stretch marks.
A thin layer of serum is applied to the skin, and the appropriate treatment is selected for a particular type of skin. Then the pen is glided across the area to be repaired in a gentle motion.
The unique design of SkinPen II allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment quite comfortable for most patients.
Length of Procedure
The procedure typically takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending upon the size of the area to be treated and the severity of skin damage.
Immediately following the treatment, you will notice a healthy pink glow. Quinn Medical Day Spa will recommend products to aid your skin’s natural healing process. Your total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the repair process required. On average, patients are pink for two to four days, while some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
Most people notice healthier-looking skin immediately, and the natural repair process of the skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. The collagen renewal process takes place over time, and your skin will continue to improve for up to six months after your final treatment.
Your individual course of treatment will be determined by your skincare professional and is based upon your treatment goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of three treatments spaced about four weeks apart. For patients with more severe skin issues, additional sessions may be necessary.
SkinPen II features the most advanced micro needle cartridge technology on the market today, which optimizes both the experience and results for the patient.
