Wrinkles, those pesky little lines that seem to appear out of nowhere, are a common concern for many people as they age.
Whether they’re caused by sun damage, genetics, or simply the natural aging process, wrinkles can make us feel self-conscious and less confident in our appearance.
But what if we told you that there’s a new game changer in town when it comes to wrinkle treatment? SkinPen Micro-Needling, a treatment that’s revolutionizing the way we say goodbye to wrinkles.
What are Wrinkle Treatments?
Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but that doesn’t mean we have to live with them. There are various treatments available to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, such as Botox injections and laser resurfacing.
Botox injections are a popular option for treating wrinkles, but they do have their downsides. Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles, which can be effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
However, Botox treatments can be costly, require frequent touch-ups, and may cause some side effects such as headaches and bruising.
Laser resurfacing is another option for treating wrinkles, but it also comes with risks. This treatment uses a laser to remove the top layer of skin, which can be effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles. However, laser resurfacing can cause redness, swelling, and even scarring.
Introducing SkinPen Micro-Needling
Now, enter SkinPen Micro-Needling. This treatment uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, which prompts the body to start producing collagen.
Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its firmness and elasticity, so by increasing collagen production, SkinPen Micro-Needling can help reduce wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
But what sets SkinPen Micro-Needling apart from other wrinkle treatments? For one, it’s minimally invasive, with little to no downtime. Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Preparing for your SkinPen Micro-Needling appointment?
Here’s what to know before you go!
- It’s best to avoid sun exposure and any exfoliating products for a few days before the treatment to prevent any irritation or complications during the procedure.
- If you have any recent sunburns or tanning, it is important to inform your practitioner before the treatment as it may not be suitable for your skin at that time.
- It’s also advisable to avoid any blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, for a few days before the treatment as it can increase the risk of bleeding or bruising.
- Your practitioner will also likely give you a numbing cream to apply to the area to be treated, to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.
- It is important to arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin to ensure that the treatment can be performed properly.
- It is also important to inform your practitioner of any skin conditions you have or any medications you are currently taking as it can affect the treatment.
- Be prepared to discuss your goals and expectations with your practitioner so they can tailor the treatment to your individual needs.
Lastly, it’s important to follow any pre-treatment instructions provided by your practitioner to ensure the best results from the procedure.
What to Expect During the Treatment
The treatment typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. A small device with tiny needles is gently moved across the skin, creating micro-injuries that will trigger collagen production.
The practitioner may use a serum or other topical treatment to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.
How to Maximize Your SkinPen Micro-Needling Results
Immediately after the treatment, you may experience some redness and mild swelling, which is a normal response of the skin to the micro-injuries caused by the needles.
This typically goes away within a day or two, but it can vary depending on the individual’s skin type and the area treated. To minimize any discomfort, it’s important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner.
Here are some general aftercare instructions that you should follow:
- Avoiding sun exposure and using sunblock to protect the skin. The skin will be more sensitive to UV rays post-treatment and it is important to protect it from sun damage.
- Keeping the skin hydrated by using a moisturizer. Moisturizing the skin will help to soothe and nourish the skin and promote healing.
- Avoiding exfoliating products and scrubs for a few days after the treatment. Exfoliating can irritate the skin and delay the healing process.
- Avoiding any activities that may cause excessive sweating, such as working out or saunas.
- Avoiding any activities that may cause excessive heat, such as hot showers or baths.
- Avoiding any activities that may cause excessive rubbing, such as massages or facials.
- Avoiding any activities that may cause excessive pressure on the treated area, such as sleeping on your face.
It is important to follow these instructions closely to ensure that your skin heals properly and that you get the best possible results from your treatment.

What to Expect from Your SkinPen Micro-Needling Results.
The full results of the treatment may take a few weeks to become visible, as the body needs time to produce new collagen.
Many people report an immediate “glow” to their skin after the treatment. Multiple treatments are usually needed for optimal results, typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
It’s important to note that SkinPen Micro-Needling may not be suitable for everyone, and you should consult with a qualified practitioner before undergoing the procedure.
