How It works
Microneedling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment used to treat different skin conditions. The treatment involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. This prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. Microneedling can be used to deposit medication, such as topical tretinoin or vitamin C, deeper into the skin. This can boost the treatment of a variety of issues, including acne scarring.

Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.
Skin Pen is the first and only Class II microneedling medical device on the market that has been studied, cleared and approved by the FDA for treatment of adult facial acne scars. It is great to know Skin Pen has this level of proven effectiveness. However, Skin Pen works on more than just acne scars. Patients see significant improvement in overall skin tone and skin texture with the reduction of fine lines and discoloration as well. It even has shown some benefits in reducing stretch marks.
Skin Pen is a microneedling device that uses a sterile tip containing 12 pinpoint needles to make small controlled minuscule, evenly spaced punctures into the skin. The small wounds created, which sometimes will cause pinpricks of blood to rise to the surface, then induce a wound healing response. This is the key to how microneedling works. Your body rushes in to patch up the injury by growing fresh new collagen and elastin, which gives skin more strength and resiliency. By continuing to stimulate collagen production over multiple treatments, the end result is patients will see fine lines and wrinkles disappear, enhanced improvement in skin tone and texture, and even reduction in large pores and acne scars. It’s also great for other skin surface irregularities like crepe skin and stretch marks. The bottom line is, as we age, we lose collagen (1% per year to be exact) and coupled with genetic changes and sun exposure this leads to wrinkles. If we can stimulate collagen production, we can fight off wrinkles and keep our skin firm, plump and elastic, to create what Skin Pen patients refer to as an “overall youthful glow
Microneedling + PRP
Microneedling treatments can also be combined with PRP to help boost results for an even more noticeable improvement in rejuvenation.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment entails drawing blood from the patient like a standard blood draw at the doctor’s office. This blood sample is then placed into a centrifuge which separates the plasma from the red and white blood cells. Plasma contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to help stimulate collagen and elastin production for youthful-looking skin.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to kick-start the skin’s wound-healing powers (thus unleashing a torrent of collagen and elastin production), while PRP uses a growth-activating serum and your body’s platelets to speed up cellular turnover. PRP can be applied to the skin following microneedling treatments to ensure that the PRP is fully absorbed.
When PRP is used along with microneedling, PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits for optimal rejuvenation. PRP can also help to address puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, so you can look as good as you feel. vPlus, because microneedling with PRP is minimally invasive, there is minimal recovery time needed. In fact, patients can usually return to work later that day.
Are you interested in rejuvenating your complexion, without the incisions, stitches, and downtime? If so, microneedling with PRP could be a good match for you.
