SkinPen Microneedling is an incredibly effective way to refresh your skin and turn back the clock without surgery or downtime. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we offer cutting-edge SkinPen Microneedling and Fractora Radio Frequency (RF) procedures to kickstart collagen and elastin production and help you achieve radiant, glowing skin.

Stimulate Collagen Production & Reverse Aging

SkinPen Microneedling is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that can work wonders for your skin. It involves using a specialized device equipped with tiny sterilized needles. These needles create controlled micro-injuries in the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This process can improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimize scars and blemishes, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful complexion that’s sure to boost your confidence.

SkinPen Microneedling Treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage and sunspots
  • Age spots and brown spots
  • Skin laxity and sagging skin
  • Sun damage and pigmentation issues

How SkinPen Microneedling Works

SkinPen Microneedling is performed using a specialized device with fine, sterilized needles, which are precisely inserted into the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s innate healing response. As the skin perceives these minor injuries, it produces new collagen and elastin fibers to repair the damage. Collagen is a structural protein responsible for the skin’s strength and elasticity, while elastin provides skin with its flexibility.

As these fresh collagen and elastin fibers develop, the skin becomes firmer, plumper, and more supple, effectively reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Furthermore, the controlled nature of SkinPen ensures the surrounding skin remains undamaged, contributing to a faster recovery process. Over time, the increased collagen and elastin production leads to improved skin texture, reduced pore size, and a more youthful complexion.

Catalyze the Results With Boosters

Take your microneedling results to the next level with our boosters. Adding a booster to your SkinPen Microneedling can supercharge its effectiveness. When applied after microneedling, these boosters penetrate deep into the dermis at the site of the micro-injuries, enhancing the overall results. This helps minimize fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size while addressing concerns like stubborn acne scars. Boosters come in various formulations, including Dermal Builder, Growth Factor Serum, Dermal Repair, Firming, Brightalive, and Rozatrol.

SkinPen Microneedling Treatment in Hampton Roads

When you opt for SkinPen Microneedling, the procedure begins with a thorough consultation with one of our skilled practitioners, who will assess your skin’s specific needs and discuss your goals. Your skin will be cleaned and prepped to ensure it’s free from any impurities, following which topical numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure, making the experience as comfortable as possible.

The specialized SkinPen device, equipped with fine, sterilized needles, is gently moved across the targeted areas of your skin. These tiny needles create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. The procedure is precise, ensuring the surrounding skin remains undamaged. To further enhance your results, you have the option to include boosters like Dermal Builder, Growth Factor Serum, Dermal Repair, Firming, Brightalive, or Rozatrol.

After the procedure, you may experience some redness and mild swelling akin to a sunburn. These effects typically subside within a few days. You can resume daily activities immediately, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a few days. Over the following weeks, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in your skin’s texture, firmness, and overall appearance. Most individuals need around three sessions spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results.

  • Stimulates natural collagen and elastin production
  • Minimal downtime and quick recovery
  • Suitable for various skin types and tones
  • Customizable with boosters for specific skin concerns
  • Minimally invasive and safe procedure
