SkinPen® Microneedling Treatment in Atlanta
Dramatically rejuvenate and improve aging skin with little to no downtime
Try as we might, few of us can go through life with picture-perfect skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, scars, and stretch marks can affect even the most well cared-for complexion—but there are options to diminish these bothersome skin concerns—and one of our very favorites is microneedling with SkinPen®.
Just a few quick, painless SkinPen treatments at our Atlanta plastic surgery practice and medical spa can help you dramatically improve your skin texture, tone, and appearance without chemicals or lasers, and with little to no downtime.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin resurfacing treatment that works by helping skin heal itself. It achieves this by using very fine needles to create hundreds of microscopic openings in the skin. The body perceives these openings as injuries, and starts the natural healing process. The treated skin is flooded with growth factors and nutrients, which accomplish two important tasks for youthful, healthy skin:
With just one treatment, cell turnover rates increase significantly
In other words, your skin replaces old skin cells that are dull and damaged with younger and healthier skin cells. This process fades scars and stretch marks and diminishes fine lines, sun damage, and texture concerns.
Your skin builds new collagen
After microneedling, your skin will become more firm and smooth and you will notice a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of microneedling
- Safe for any skin type, color, or age
- Useful nearly anywhere on the body: face, neck, hands, etc.
- 100% natural skin resurfacing, with no chemicals, lasers, or harsh abrasives
- Quick treatments with little to no downtime. Most patients return to full activity the next day.
- Noticeable improvements after the first treatment, with dramatic results after a series
- Excellent to improve a variety of common and difficult-to-treat skin concerns
What is SkinPen treatment?
There are many microneedling devices on the market, but we believe SkinPen offers our Atlanta patients the best treatment experience—as well as predictable and satisfying results. SkinPen is designed for ultimate patient comfort. The tip of the handheld device glides smoothly across the skin, for a virtually painless treatment with reduced risk of post-treatment redness and bleeding.
SkinPen is a highly customizable treatment that allows our aestheticians to effectively treat specific skin problems. We can adjust the spacing and depth of the needles to reach precisely the right skin layers and cells for optimal improvements.see more patient reviews stars
I am so happy with my relationship with Artisian Plastic Surgery! From the start, they were concerned with my desire to have a natural result and they provided amazing results.
What to expect with your SkinPen microneedling treatment
Each SkinPen treatment can take 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment area(s). The SkinPen handpiece is placed on the surface of your skin and gently moved across the treatment area. We can apply a topical anesthetic to help keep you comfortable, although most patients only report a mild, buzzing sensation treatment.
Following the treatment, you can resume most normal activities. Your skin will look slightly red and feel sensitive, similar to a mild sunburn for 2 or 3 days. You will need to keep treated skin completely protected from the sun for several days. A customized at-home skincare routine can help you achieve optimal results; our licensed medical aesthetician will help you design the right plan for your needs.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients choose to have a series of 2 to 4 microneedling treatments, spaced one month apart, as multiple treatments can achieve the most dramatic improvements. One significant benefit of microneedling is that the results last many months, as it helps your skin physically improve from the inside out.
