The SkinPen treatment temporarily creates thousands of micro-channels which allows for superior penetration and diffusion of topicals during and post-procedure without ablation or introduction of thermal energy. Fractionated injuries are a quick, safe, and effective percutaneous collagen induction therapy.
Treatments with SkinPen are typically tolerated very well by patients, many reporting that they feel little-to-no discomfort during the procedure. DermaSmooth Med Spa will work with you to ensure your comfort during your procedure.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure; however, since the skin is being penetrated there will be some mild effects afterwards. These effects will vary based on needle depth used and intensity of treatment. Typical post-treatment effects are as follows:
- Day 1: Mild to moderate swelling and redness, similar to a mild sunburn. There may be some mild bruising as well.
- Day 2: Some persisting redness may be present, but all redness bruising and swelling should be diminishing.
- Day 3: Most redness, bruising and swelling should be nearly gone. Normal appearance with makeup may be achieved.
- Day 4: Appear mostly normal at this point with some minor swelling.
