Safe for all skin types with very low downtime.
Over-the-counter skincare products aren’t always enough to restore skin sufficiently. An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment, microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy that significantly improves the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and even stretch marks by resurfacing the top layer of the skin.
At Skin Med Spa & Laser, we use SkinPen by Bellus Medical for all Microneedling treatments. This technology is FDA approved, safe and effective to refresh skin. For best results, it should be done monthly.

How SkinPen works
It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process with SkinPen:
Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Frequently asked questions
A single session can be completed in as little as 20 or 30 minutes.
After a microneedling treatment session, you can go as long as six months to a year before coming back for another treatment to maintain the results.
Microneedling can make topical products that are applied to the skin more effective by allowing for deeper infiltration. This will allow the products to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers so that they can improve skin quality even more.
We take every precaution necessary to ensure that no one’s health is put at risk with this treatment. Sanitary procedures are followed closely by our staff to eliminate the chances of infections happening.
Don’t put on makeup, especially with a makeup brush that has been used before, in the 24 hours following microneedling. You’ll also need to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and situations where you might sweat heavily, including intense workouts at the gym, to protect your newly treated skin.
