SkinPen MicroNeedling FAQS


Am I a candidate?


All skin types can benefit from microneedling, making it an excellent way to regularly boost your skin’s ability to absorb products and active ingredients. SkinPen Microneedling is a great alternative to invasive procedures for effective rejuvenation. SkinPen can be used regularly as a series of treatments to maintain your results and healthy skin. It can also be paired with other facial treatments such as the HydraFacial or Dermaplaning.

When will I see results?


You can begin to see improvement in your skin around one week after your first procedure. Best results with SkinPen usually appear after a series of three treatments spaced about thirty days apart, depending on your unique concerns and skincare goals.  The skin texture will appear smoother, rejuvenated, and brightened. You can receive additional SkinPen treatments to maintain your results and keep your skin clear and healthy.

What should I put on my skin after microneedling?


Microneedling works best when active ingredients are introduced into the treated skin to specifically address your concerns. This is because your skin can absorb them much more effectively through the micro-channels. After treatment, you should be sure to discuss your regular skincare regimen with your clinician to avoid any products that may be too harsh or drying.  Home care is extremely important when it comes to maintaining your results.  Your clinician can recommend the right products to use for your skin’s recovery period like Alastin Skin Nectar.   Alastin Restorative Skin Complex is another great product to use to clean out your extracellular matrix while nourishing your newly produces collagen and elastin.

What is a Vampire Facial?


The Vampire Facial is an extremely popular skincare treatment that uses the microneedling technique, or collagen induction therapy (CIT). However, the vampire facial also introduces PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, to help further boost cellular regeneration and turnover. PRP is derived from your own blood sample which is spun down to separate the plasma from the red and white cells. This plasma is rich in growth factors and doesn’t come with the risk of reaction or side effects like some products do.  Talk to your clinician or our Patient Care Coordinator if you are interested in adding PRP to your SkinPen treatment.

How is SkinPen different than RF Microneedling?


Both of these treatment options utilize collagen induction therapy, but in slightly different ways. RF stands for radiofrequency, and the device used during RF microneedling emits this type of energy as the microchannels are created. This causes the skin to tighten and firm as opposed to traditional microneedling with SkinPen.  Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa offers the Genius RF Treatment.  During a consultation, we can determine which option fits you best.

At what age should I start microneedling?


Everyone ages differently, so there’s no magic age at which you should start getting treatments. However, there are some benefits to starting treatment once you begin to notice signs of aging. As you age, your body’s rejuvenating systems begin to slow down due to free radical damage that occurs inside and outside of the body.  This means your body becomes less effective at restoring collagen to keep your skin lifted and youthful. Undergoing regular microneedling treatments can help your skin remain firm and healthy as you age, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Also maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle will incur positive changes in your skin.

Can I try microneedling at home?


It’s likely that you’ve seen at-home microneedling devices like dermarollers online or on social media. Although it can be tempting to try and achieve great results at home, it’s not well understood how effective these devices can be compared to professional treatments.  It’s important to keep in mind that professional treatments come with a higher degree of safety and effectiveness versus at-home products and devices where you can’t entirely verify their authenticity and that you can risk infection or damage your skin. If you want to try dermarolling at home, be sure to speak with your clinician first.

How much does SkinPen Microneedling cost?


Skin Pen can be done as a single treatment, but we like to recommend microneedling as a package of treatments for optimal results.  Our Patient Care Coordinator will give you a full recommendation and quote during your consultation
