About SkinPen Microneedling
If you've tried multiple skin care products for aging, but nothing seems to work, try nonsurgical procedures for skin rejuvenation, like microneedling. Our team is pleased to provide microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at our office in Palm Beach, FL. Microneedling uses a handpiece called the SkinPen. The SkinPen has many fine-gauge needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the body's natural production of elastin and collagen. These two nutrients contribute to the health and appearance of your complexion. Easily performed with other treatments, like vitamin serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can help reduce pores, scars, and stretch marks. Make an appointment for a consultation at DeRosa Center Plastic Surgery to hear more about the results of microneedling and ways to personalize your treatment for your skin needs and goals.

Is Microneedling For You?
It's possible you could benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Microneedling treatments can also reduce the look of scars, stretch marks, and pores. Because of the type of treatment, the skin will need time to start generating new collagen and elastin so results are not immediate. Patients will have to wait a while before seeing benefits from your microneedling treatment. Generally, elastin and collagen need a month or longer to have an impact on the skin. After a month, you will have natural-looking results and gain healthier skin.
Microneedling is completed in one of our treatment rooms and takes about 30 – 60 minutes. If requested, we can apply a numbing cream or a local anesthesia, but most patients report little or no discomfort. Before the treatment, we will clean the treatment area. Next, we gently move the SkinPen handpiece evenly across your skin. After the microneedling is performed, a treatment, such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a vitamin-infused serum, may be used for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. Additionally, we will apply a moisturizer and UV protection since the treated skin is more sensitive after the procedure.
What to Expect
You may have light swelling and redness for around a day; however, this should fade on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months because the collagen and elastin levels need to increase before you notice visible improvements in the appearance and health of your complexion. For optimal outcomes and long-lasting skin health, you should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up treatments that we perform every 4 – 6 weeks.
