Skin Pen® is a medical grade, a state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars on the face and body.
Skin Pen® treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. This treatment is effective for treating fine lines, photoaging, acne scars and large pores. The micro-channels created also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical grade anti-aging serums and skin lighteners when applied during or immediately after the treatment.
Our esthetician will apply a medical grade numbing cream to ensure comfort during the procedure. You will relax with your phone, a book or NetFlix while the numbing cream penetrates your skin.
The procedure itself takes 30-45 minutes and can be done regionally for problem areas or on the full face for an overall improvement. Following your procedure, the esthetician will apply a tissue repair cream. Our esthetician will also recommend a personalized regimen of serums, creams and an SPF for at home use to enhance your results.
Am I a good candidate for Skin Pen®?
Microneedling has been safely used on both women and men including patients of all skin types. However, patients who have very thin, crepey skin may not be good candidates for Skin Pen®.
What is the recovery like?
There is no downtime with microneedling. The treated area will be pink for up to 48 hours (looks like a sunburn); you will feel sensitive, similar to a sunburn. After 2-3 days you may experience some dryness and flaking. After a few days, you will have a refreshed and radiant complexion! It will take 3-6 months to see the full impact of collagen remodeling and people will require 3-6 treatments.
Dr. de Ramón has a specially trained medical staff to offer personal care throughout the recovery process. Post-op patients are also given his personal cell phone number to contact him in case of problems or questions.
What is the cost of Skin Pen®?
Skin Pen® costs vary by area treated. A regional treatment, for example around the lips, is between $250-275 per treatment. A full-face treatment is between $350-375 per treatment. To get the best results a series of 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is strongly recommended. Some patients will see further benefit from two or three series of 3 treatments spaced 6 months apart. The number of series required is based on the area being treated, the age of the patient and the goals to be achieved. A discount is provided to patients purchasing a series of 3 treatments.Before & After Gallery
