Did you know that treatments with The World’s First FDA-Cleared Microneedling Device are now available at Cosmetic Surgery Center in Virginia Beach?
The SkinPen® is wireless and designed to fit comfortably in the clinician’s hand. The small size of the needling cartridge makes it easy to target small or hard-to-reach areas such as around the nose in order to perform a more comprehensive service for our valuable patients.
What Does the MicroNeedling Pen Do?
The SkinPen® device is used primarily to help revitalize aging skin and soften acne scars by triggering the skin’s natural healing response, resulting in healthy, glowing skin.
Microneedling can be performed anywhere on the body.
It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed in-office by a qualified, trained clinician.
The tip of the pen holds a series of tiny surgical steel needles which pierce the skin. The depth is based on each patient’s specific skin condition. The needle cartridge is disposable, and the SkinPen® itself is designed to minimize contamination.
Will It Hurt?
Most patients say their experience microneedling was virtually painless; however, clinicians may apply a topical numbing agent prior to beginning the procedure in order to ensure the most positive experience for our patients.
There is minimal post-procedure reddening of the skin, which dissipates, so there is no downtime required.
How long does the treatment take?
SkinPen® microneedling procedures are brief, in-office procedures. Our team will typically schedule 90 minutes for each treatment which includes time for numbing, the treatment, as well as post care instructions.
This procedure is gentler than most alternatives, so it may take 3 to 5 sessions to achieve optimal results. It is recommended that treatments are scheduled about 4-6 weeks apart, to give the skin time to rest and heal in between.
Is Microneedling right for me?
Microneedling with SkinPen® is safe and effective for every skin color and type. When performed correctly by a trained clinician, there are is little risk of any side-effects such as scarring, hyperpigmentation or other discoloration.
