Do you have acne prone skin? Do you or have you suffered from acne flare ups in the past? Are you unhappy with the overall texture of your skin? Would you like to find an answer to your problem skin? This blog will explore a relatively new treatment that will improve the overall texture of normal to acne prone skin. Acne is a frustrating and complicated skin condition, and because of this it is often misunderstood. Acne is unsightly and can cause scarring with flare ups that have occurred over and over again. Some acne scars are superficial, but in many situations one can end up with a “pitted” texture to the skin. In this blog we will discover a treatment for acneic skin that has scarred over time. This treatment can be the answer to problem skin that is the result of prolonged acne.

SkinPen micro-needling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that helps improve your skin by stimulating its natural ability to produce collagen and repair itself. The SkinPen device is a micro-needling tool that uses small needles to create hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second. This puncturing of the skin stimulates the skin’s natural healing process – causing inflammation, proliferation, and then remodeling – but without causing scar tissue formation, making it a very ideal treatment for acneic skin. In response to these micro-injuries, your body produces collagen and elastin to heal the wound naturally. Best of all, many clients see results after just one or two treatment sessions. 

With SkinPen microneedling, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence! SkinPen is the first FDA (Food and Drug Administration) cleared device and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the face, neck, and to improve acne scarring in patients ages 22 and older. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced one-month apart, SkinPen effectively remodels the underlying tissues while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. 

How should I prepare for SkinPen Microneedling?

Avoid sun exposure/burns twenty-four (24) hours prior to treatment. Discontinue use of retinoids twelve (12) hours prior to treatment. You should not have had a breakout of active cold sores, or open lesions. If this occurs, your microneedling treatment should be rescheduled. As a reminder it is always important to come to your SkinPen microneedling appointments with clean skin.

What is it best to avoid after treatment?

After SkinPen treatment it is best to avoid exercise and sun exposure for 72 hours. It is also best to forego other facial aesthetic treatments for one month following SkinPen. See your aesthetician for a one month follow up visit to check your progress and book the next treatment. Many clients are surprised to find out that they will need to wait at least 48 to 72 hours to apply make up products to the skin. This temporary ban on makeup even applies to a tinted moisturizer or tinted sunscreen. SkinPen treatments can safely be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
