SkinStylus in Knoxville, TN

SkinStylus is a revolutionary microneedling treatment designed to improve the appearance of scars and skin texture.

What is SkinStylus Microneedling?

SkinStylus is a microneedling device that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries on the skin's surface. This process stimulates the body's natural wound healing response, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. The result is improved skin texture and a reduction in the appearance of scars.

What Areas Can SkinStylus Treat?

SkinStylus is FDA cleared for use on the face and abdomen. It can improve the appearance of facial acne scars in adults aged 22 years and older with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II, and III. Additionally, it can enhance the look of surgical or traumatic hypertrophic scars on the abdomen for adults aged 22 or older.

How Does SkinStylus Work?

SkinStylus microneedling works by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This triggers the body's natural healing process, which includes the production of collagen and elastin, key components in maintaining youthful, resilient skin. Over time, this leads to visible improvements in skin texture and scar appearance.


What Are the Benefits of SkinStylus?

SkinStylus is a preferred microneedling treatment due to its high safety profile and several other benefits:

  • FDA Cleared: The only microneedling device with clearance for both face and abdomen.
  • Safety: Features a patented Seven-Step Safety System to prevent cross-contamination.
  • Flexibility: Offers three different cartridge configurations and both battery (cordless) and corded power options.
  • Hygiene: Can be disinfected with CaviCide® or autoclave reprocessed without a plastic sheath.
  • Proven Results: Clinical data shows visible outcomes post-treatment.

What is the SkinStylus Treatment Like?

We will apply a topical anesthetic to the area being treated approximately 30-45 minutes before your SkinStylus treatment. This helps to reduce any discomfort that may occur during the treatment process. The microneedles penetrate the superficial layer of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. The treatment typically takes 30 minutes.

How Long is the Recovery Time After SkinStylus?

SkinStylus is minimally invasive with minimal downtime. The treated area will be slightly pink or red immediately following treatment, similar to a sunburn, but these effects typically subside within a few days. You may also experience temporary dryness, tightness, itching, peeling, tenderness, and burning that will dissipate over several days following your treatment. Most people can resume their regular activities within 24-48 hours. It is important to limit makeup application and sun exposure for a few days after your treatment.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from SkinStylus?

The SkinStylus treatment can dramatically improve the appearance of acne scars. The treatment can also help reduce pore size, smooth fine lines & wrinkles, and improve skin complexion & texture, giving you a more radiant and youthful appearance. Results can be seen within a few days, but continually improve, seeing full results at about 3 weeks. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results.


How Much Does SkinStylus Treatment Cost?

The cost of SkinStylus treatment varies based on individual needs and treatment plans. During a consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your skin concerns and goals. We will discuss the exact costs during your consultation and explore financing options to make the treatment more affordable.
