Offering SkinPen in Minneapolis
One pen, and one hour for rejuvenated skin with medical grade, state of the art micro-needling. SkinPen is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation creating healthier skin and improved appearance. Not just for wrinkles, micro-needling can treat hyperpigmentation, fine lines, scars, sun damage and stretch marks. Patients have not only received treatments on the face, but also the neck, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back, and on all skin types and all skin colors.
This is possible because the outermost layer of skin absorbs the vast majority of damage. Whether that damage is caused by the elements (such as the sun or the wind) or by natural mechanisms of aging, the result is skin that can appear discolored, worn out, and fatigued.
The SkinPen treatment offered by Carillon Minneapolis is specially designed to address these issues in the most comfortable and effective way possible. If you want to learn more about SkinPen, contact us to schedule a confidential consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for SkinPen Treatments?
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for SkinPen at Carillon Minneapolis is to schedule a consultation with our staff. However, SkinPen is capable of treating a wide variety of skin ailments and conditions. Most SkinPen or Microneedling candidates have at least some of the following characteristics:
- Fine lines or wrinkles on the skin, especially in the face
- Sunspots or other damage
- Areas of discoloration on the skin (usually in the face)
- Areas of sun damage or other brown spots
- Uneven skin tone or lack of radiance
- Large or unsightly pores
- Scars from acne
In general, SkinPen and Microneedling procedures will result in roughly a day or so of redness, so some candidates prefer to schedule a day of vacation after the procedure. That said, patients can return to normal activities the day after their Mirconeedling session.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for SkinPen, contact Carillon Minneapolis to schedule a confidential consultation, during which we will discuss the best way to achieve your desired results.
How Does SkinPen Work?
SkinPen can also be referred to as Microtherapy, micro needling, micro pen, derma pen or skin needling. The at home version, called derma roller or derm roller is also classified as Micro needling. As a consumer, the options and info can be overwhelming. Carillon Clinic has done the research and homework for you, and chose the SkinPen for many reasons, most importantly the patient’s safety and sterility.
The at home use of derm rollers or derma rollers can be an breeding ground for bacteria or hepatitis, so we usually advise that patients steer clear of that option. Other in-office devices do not have the patented bio-sleeve technology that eliminates cross-contamination and SkinPen is the only stainless steel medical grade device for needling on the market.
Skin Pen needle stamping creates thousands of micro channels or micro-injuries in the skin, which causes the skin to produce new collagen. The micro-injuries also create channels that allow product to penetrate more effectively into the deeper layers of skin. Essentially, SkinPen can trick your body into producing a large quantity of chemicals that are designed to heal. Because there is no significant injury to your skin, the healing chemicals are usually able to rejuvenate instead.
The SkinPen Procedure
The procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated, number of areas, and the severity of damage on the skin. Most patients do not report any major discomfort. In fact, many patients note that the only sensations they are aware of are the vibrations coming from the SkinPen instrument. We offer all of our SkinPen patients topical numbing prior to the treatment.
On average, patients have some slight redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 1 to 3 days and some patients heal completely in 24 hours. SkinPen treatments can be scheduled a month apart and your skincare professional will determine the number of treatments based on your individual treatment goals for your specific concerns.
Results from SkinPen treatments will generally become visible within 1-6 weeks of your session. However, several factors can influence the prominence of those results after only one session. For example, scarring from acne and the overall age of the skin can both impact your final results. Many patients who have substantial acne scarring or who have more extensive lines and wrinkles will often schedule multiple sessions in order to achieve the best results possible.
In most cases, SkinPen or microneedling treatments will help the skin to appear more radiant and youthful. SkinPen can help to mitigate lines and minor wrinkles, even out skin tone, and diminish scarring and damage of various types. This means that after an appropriate amount of sessions, your skin ma appear smoother and healthier than before.
Many patients have commented that SkinPen helps make them feel livelier and more energetic because they love what they see in the mirror. With this feeling comes a boost of confidence and self-esteem that patients love!
SkinPen usually takes under an hour to perform, so if you’re looking for a quick way to return some vitality to your skin, contact Carillon Minneapolis to schedule a confidential consultation. Your transformation could start right away!
