Who Should Consider Microneedling?

The best candidates for microneedling are men or women of almost any age who are concerned with the appearance of their skin. The most common Dermapen® candidates are people concerned with acne scars, a loss of facial firmness, uneven skin tone or texture, or stretch marks. Microneedling can also improve acne, although candidates should not have an active acne breakout. Dermapen® microneedling is frequently combined with other med spa treatments as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

Procedure FAQ's

What is Dermapen microneedling?

Dermapen® is a fractional rejuvenation treatment that provides men and women with more youthful, healthier and more radiant skin on the face, neck, chest and more. This system essentially replaces older, damaged skin and allows for the generation of new collagen, dermal and epidermal skin. Dermapen® has been approved by the FDA and offers results that can be similar to those offered by fractional laser resurfacing, with a lower price tag and no downtime.

How does Dermapen microneedling work?

This procedure uses a sterilized microneedling device that vibrates several hundred times per minute. The speed is adjustable for customized precision in sensitive areas such as around the eyes and nose, as well as in spots that require extra attention, such as scars. The microneedling device is passed over the treatment area several times, creating thousands of tiny punctures.

Your skin may look and feel slightly inflamed immediately following your procedure. However, no downtime is necessary, and you can return to your normal routine the following day, taking special care to avoid direct sun exposure.

Is microneedling painful?

While the procedure is not painful, a topical numbing cream is first applied to the skin to maximize comfort during your treatment. Because the needle is disposable, new needles are used for each procedure for optimal health and safety.

When can I expect to see results from my microneedling treatment?

Many people see good results after a single Dermapen® treatment, although experiences vary. Dr. Kim recommends a series of treatments spaced four to six weeks apart for the best results. Depending on the extent of skin correction required, you may benefit the most from three to six microneedling appointments.
