Microneedling with SkinPen™

The other terms for Microneedling are Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PIC). As an innovative aesthetic medicine approach, this technique effectively addresses acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and brings about a holistic improvement on your skin.

The SkinPen is a medical-grade, hand-held device that is used for microneedling.

Excellent anti-aging benefits of Microneedling with SkinPen™

The key benefit of Microneedling with SkinPen™ is the reversal of the harsh effects of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes. A tighter, plumper, and firmer skin with enhanced elasticity is the reason why Microneedling with SkinPen™ is a highly sought-after treatment at Destin Medical Spa.

The SkinPen™ is suitable for use on the face, neck, and other areas of the body. The device has adjustable depth settings that help customize the treatment to the exact area being addressed.

The technique is used to address:
• Signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
• Hyperpigmentation on the face and neck
• Acne scars
• Uneven skin tone or texture
• Chickenpox scars
• Sun damage
• Other trauma, wound, surgery or burns related scars
• Enlarged pores

The results

While our clients notice an immediate “glow” after the treatment, it can take several days for you to observe a visible improvement. As collagen production continues, results gradually improve over the next six months.

How does Microneedling with SkinPen™ restore the texture and volume of your skin?

The skin is not only the largest organ in the human body, but is also unique in many ways. It is the first line of defense we have against foreign invaders and disease-causing pathogens. As an effective barrier, it contains glands, oil, proteins, and other biological compounds that maintain the firmness, elasticity, hydration, smoothness, volume, and structure of the skin.

While the skin has five layers, each layer has a specific role to play in maintaining skin health. The uppermost layer, called the epidermis, contains dead skin cells that are periodically shed, while the middle layer – the dermis – contains skin health proteins called collagen and elastin. Collagen provides structural support while also promoting new cell growth and tissue repair. It is released in response to external injury to accelerate cell regeneration and wound healing.

Low collagen levels can be a result of the natural aging process as well as external pollutants, chronic illnesses, smoking, exposure to ultraviolet rays, and certain medications. Lack of collagen leads to unwelcome side effects of aging or premature aging with fine lines, folds, wrinkles, creases, and under-eye bags.

Microneedling with the SkinPen™ device produces micro-injuries that encourage collagen production. Although superficial, these injuries initiate a cascade of wound healing, stimulating the release of collagen, which in turn, restores the skin’s suppleness, strength, and structure.

Clinical studies have shown that microneedling transforms the skin’s appearance by improving its texture, tone and volume. While it is a minimally-invasive and safe way to erase signs of aging, the technique is the preferred delivery mode for advanced microneedling treatments, topical serums, or other skin health-boosting biological components.

When it comes to microneedling at Destin Medical Spa, cutting-edge techniques are performed by our experienced and skilled aesthetic physician Dr. Wiebe, in a warm and relaxed boutique medspa atmosphere.


The microneedling procedure

During this procedure, Dr. Wiebe uses the SkinPen™, which has tiny needles to create micro-injuries on the facial skin in a precise, controlled way. The SkinPen™ produces superficial micro-channels on the skin that facilitate a more effective absorption of topical serums into the skin.

First, a topical numbing cream is applied to maximize comfort. Then, Dr. Wiebe uses the SkinPen™ device that has a secured tip with tiny micro-needles.

A topical gel is applied while Dr. Wiebe selects the precise treatment depth based on her evaluation of the extent of wrinkles or fine lines and your unique cosmetic needs. The pen is gently moved over the skin to create controlled and precise micro-injuries that promote collagen generation.

The entire procedure can be completed within 15 to 30 minutes, although the exact time taken depends on the area being treated and the extent of treatment required.
