Are you looking for a way to firm, smooth, and brighten your skin with minimal discomfort or downtime? Microneedling is an effective technique for triggering collagen production and restoring your skin’s texture and tone. Your Rejuve Med Spa providers are experts in using this form of collagen induction therapy.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that works by restoring your skin’s natural collagen production. Tiny needles penetrate the skin into the dermis, where collagen is formed. Cells called fibroblasts produce this important structural protein. The controlled injury caused by microneedling triggers a powerful healing response that boosts collagen formation. It also brings healthy new skin cells to the surface, erasing damage and pigmentation problems.
Is Microneedling Painful?
Your Rejuve Med Spa team offers the SkinPen® microneedling device. This precision handheld device is FDA-cleared and highly customizable. It gives your provider more control over the intensity of your treatment for maximum comfort.
Most people note that microneedling is not painful, comparing it to a minor prickling sensation. Others describe it as feeling a rough surface pressed against the skin. We offer numbing cream to make your treatment even more comfortable. The needles used by SkinPen® microneedling are so tiny that you can barely feel them. This advanced device works so quickly that most people feel little to no sensation, especially with numbing.

Is There Any Downtime After Microneedling?
Microneedling with SkinPen® uses such precisely controlled damage that it requires little to no downtime. You can return to your usual activities immediately. Your skin will typically feel red and sensitive for a day or more. Avoid irritating products such as scrubs, peels, and retinol for several days after your session. Consistent sun protection will help your skin heal and protect your developing collagen.
What Results Will I See After Microneedling?
Most people will benefit from a series of microneedling treatments Many people will achieve their desired results after three or four sessions. Those treating significant pigmentation or textural issues may need additional treatments. 94% of people treated with SkinPen® felt that their lines and wrinkles looked better one month after treatment, and 80% noted acne scar improvement in the same time period. Results take several weeks to appear, and full results can take up to three months to develop.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling With SkinPen®?
Microneedling, unlike many laser treatments, is safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates want to address issues such as lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and loss of firmness. Microneedling may be right for you if you are in good health and have reasonable expectations. You should not have microneedling if you have a skin infection or active skin condition in the treatment area.
