Good Skin is the Best Foundation for Makeup.
If you are interested in rejuvenating your entire face using a non-surgical tool, then Microneedling is a great alternative. Aesthetica utilizes SkinPen, the only FDA approved Microneedling pen, to reduce the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and revive aging skin. The Skinpen quickly creates “micro” skin punctures on the treatment area – the idea here is to execute a controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating micro injuries. This sounds much scarier than in it – in fact, this is very intuitive. Once the body’s natural wound healing process is complete, you are left with new dermal tissue and blood vessels. This specific treatment is especially recommended for patients suffering from acne scars. SkinPen is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.
This is a fan favorite since SkinPen can be used on all types of skin and on all colors of skin. The procedure typically takes 30 minutes with a topical anesthetic applied to the skin prior to the procedure to minimize any discomfort. Most patients will experience slight redness and swelling for 2-4 days. Typically, we recommend that patient receive a 3 treatment series, spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.
How it Works
Microneedling’s promise to boost collagen production is achieved by triggering the body’s healing processes. A microneedling device uses dozens of sterile needles to superficially puncture the skin surface and activate healing.
Microneedling can also help break apart tough scar tissues, giving way for a smoother complexion. Different solutions can be introduced to the skin using a microneedling device, which delivers serums and acids straight to the skin for unparalleled absorption.

Frequently Asked Questions
Nearly anyone can be a good candidate for microneedling, because this procedure has very little to no drawbacks and is minimally invasive. With no wounding of the skin and minimal risks, microneedling therapy can be used on anyone who believes they need it. Doctors like to call microneedling therapy a color blind procedure, as it is effective on any kind of skin.
It is also incredibly affordable, as microneedle devices are much simpler than other more complex medical devices used for the skin.
There are a few things you can expect after your first microneedling session, which can be done every 4-6 weeks. Here are some important things you should know:
- Your skin will return to normal after the inflammation for 1-2 days after the procedure.
- You can expect your skin to begin to peel up to 5 days after the treatment. Keep your skin moisturized and try to avoid .any intense activity that may cause sweating, as you do not want to open your pores. Avoid the sun for up to a week after the procedure.
- Do not take any inflammatory medication such as Advil or Ibuprofen after your procedure, and your body’s inflammation needs to naturally transform during this healing period.
- If you are experiencing too much skin discomfort, fresh pineapples can help with the pain.
- Results are guaranteed to show up. After your skin has recovered, you will be glowing in no time.
Unfortunately, microneedling results won’t last forever, so regular maintenance is advised. Doctors recommend that you have a microneedling treatment session at least once every quarter, or four times a year. This will ensure that you are looking fresh and glowing year-round.
