What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetics treatment that uses very small (i.e., micro) needles to kickstart a healing and regeneration process in your skin. With this minimally invasive treatment, Jana and her team can minimize the appearance of a range of skin issues and concerns, including:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Large pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Uneven skin

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling triggers a multistep process within your skin that transforms its appearance and texture. It works by first pricking your skin, creating micro-injuries. (Don’t worry, this procedure is designed with your comfort in mind. Most patients report they don’t feel anything except the SkinPen’s vibration.) The pinpricks the microneedling treatment creates are so small you most likely won’t even be able to see them.

Your body, however, does detect these injuries and wants to heal them. To do that, it directs your immune system to them, cleaning them out and increasing blood flow in the area. Then, your body continues the healing process by creating a new network of collagen, elastin, and healthy skin tissue. Elastin and collagen are the proteins in your skin that keep it plump, smooth, and elastic.

As the micro-injuries continue to heal, that new collagen and elastin smooth your skin as the resulting newly generated tissue clears and brightens it.


What is the SkinPen?

Not all microneedling devices are created equal. FIRMASKIN Med Spa has chosen to use the SkinPen, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, to deliver dramatic results safely and comfortably. According to an in-house study from SkinPen’s manufacturer, Bellus Medical, 90% of people who received a SkinPen microneedling treatment would recommend the procedure to their family and friends.

SkinPen treatments usually take about 30 minutes. You’ll most likely experience some redness after the procedure, but it dissipates on its own, revealing clearer, smoother, more vibrant skin. With this minimally invasive treatment, Jana and her FIRMASKIN Med Spa team can eliminate a range of skin issues, helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
