Introduction to Microneedling (SkinPen)

At Sage Medical Aesthetics, we offer the advanced SkinPen microneedling treatment, a new approach to skin rejuvenation. This FDA-cleared, minimally invasive procedure uses the body’s natural healing properties to effectively address a wide range of skin concerns, promising smoother, more youthful skin with minimal downtime.

What Is Microneedling (SkinPen)?

Microneedling with the SkinPen is a treatment that creates thousands of precise “micro” skin punctures per second, initiating a natural healing process. This process, including inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling, corrects imperfections and enhances the overall quality of the skin, making it the only FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market today.

What is Microneedling (SkinPen) + PRP?

Combining SkinPen microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy elevates the regenerative power of the treatment. PRP involves applying a concentration of your own platelets to the skin, enhancing the healing process initiated by the SkinPen. This combination accelerates the production of collagen and elastin, offering an advanced level of skin rejuvenation.

How Does Microneedling (SkinPen) Work?

The SkinPen precisely penetrates the skin’s surface to trigger an immune response that disinfects the area, builds new granulation cells, and forms new collagen-rich tissue. This process, involving inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling, prompts tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. The result is visibly rejuvenated, youthful-looking skin, often with patients able to return to normal activities within 24 hours.
