Does SkinPen MicroNeedling Hurt?

Looking for beautiful, younger-looking skin that doesn’t require intensive surgery or regular injections? 

Then it’s time to introduce yourself to SkinPen MicroNeedling – a unique technology that harnesses the power of your body’s healing properties to reveal refreshed and rejuvenated skin.  SkinPen MicroNeedling uses a fine-tip needlepoint to quickly puncture the skin’s surface, creating microscopic wounds.  As soon as these wounds have been created, the body increases collagen production to help heal the punctures.  As a result, cellular turnover is increased to reveal a complexion that glows from within.

Many clients are understandably hesitant about undergoing a procedure that involves the use of needles.  Fortunately, SkinPen MicroNeedling is only mildly uncomfortable; many people compare the treatment sensation to feeling sandpaper being lightly moved over the skin.  If you’re still concerned about any pain or discomfort during your SkinPen MicroNeedling procedure, a topical numbing treatment can be applied to the treatment area.

SkinPen MicroNeedling is an excellent choice for clients who may be concerned with the following skin issues:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull skin
  • Rosacea
  • Acne scars
  • And more!

There’s very little downtime or recovery associated with SkinPen MicroNeedling. Your aesthetician will give you instructions on what products to use post procedure. Typically a mild topical moisturizer and a sunscreen is suggested after your treatment to prevent UV rays from harming newly sensitive skin.  You’ll start seeing results in as little as a week, with final results visible after a month.  Most clients only need a few SkinPen MicroNeedling treatments per year to maintain their results.

Our spa staff can help you better understand if you’ll experience any pain or discomfort during your SkinPen MicroNeedling procedure.
