What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is used to treat fine lines, scars, texture, tone, and color. Fine needles create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. Micro-injuries are created to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen production. Platlete-rich plasma (PRP) may be added to your treatment to activate additional collagen production.
SkinPen®, by Crown Aesthetics, is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improved skin tone and texture. You can also expect softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. SkinPen® can help improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, trauma scars, and stretch marks.

We begin the service by topically numbing the treatment area to create a comfortable experience. A sterile tip containing 12 tiny micro-tips is attached to the SkinPen®. Your skincare professional will apply sterile saline and select the appropriate treatment pen settings based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
We use microneedling to treat various parts of the body including:

HOW LONG IS THE SERVICE?
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
The healing time depends on each individual. Some slight swelling and redness/pinkness for two to four days following the procedure.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Visible results after 6 weeks. Dramatic results will appear after 3 treatments.
What to expect after microneedling?
Immediately after the treatment, the treated skin will appear bright red. On average, redness will disappear within 2-4 days, however, some patients experience complete healing within 24 hours. Skin condition can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.
How many microneedling treatments are recommended?
It is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with concerns about deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
