Bring out your inner beauty with microneedling

Although microneedling is done using a small device, it can create big transformations. This treatment has been shown to improve complexions, reduce neck wrinkles, reduce the appearance of acne scars and reveal smooth, healthy skin.


SkinPen, the first FDA- cleared microneedling device, creates thousands of microscopic channels in your skin. While doing this, it activates the body’s natural healing response to remodel the skin and keep its overall structure intact.


After the skin is gently cleansed, a topical anesthesia may be administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment. The SkinPen device uses one or more needles to mechanically puncture and injure skin tissue for aesthetic use. This process jumpstarts the production of collagen and elastin and encourages the release of growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells. The result is a cascade of healing processes that can continue for months after your treatment.

“Collagen and elastin are the essential protein fibers in the skin that give it support and elasticity,” says Dr. Dawn Hansen of Dermatology Specialists of Mississippi & Aqua Medical Spa. “As we age, these fibers break down and can cause wrinkles. Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level.”


After your treatment, your skin may appear slightly pink to red, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. This is normal and should subside within 24 to 72 hours. Most people see results in as few as three 30-minute sessions. Some people see rejuvenated skin after just one treatment, and results may continue to improve for three to six months following your last treatment.


Microneedling using SkinPen rejuvenates skin from the inside out, and results are natural, safe and effective for all skin tones and types. The procedure jump-starts new collagen without heat or chemicals and is a quick and easy treatment with little to no downtime.

  • 94 percent of patients noticed an improvement in how their neck wrinkles looked at one-month post treatment.
  • 90 percent of clinical trial subjects for acne scarring would recommend the procedure to friends and family.

Treatment sessions last approximately 30 minutes. Depending on whether an anesthetic is used, your entire treatment session may last up to one hour — leaving plenty of time to schedule your treatment before work or during your lunch hour. Be sure to confirm with your provider when you schedule to get an accurate estimate, so you know how to plan your visit.
