Do SkinPen Treatments Hurt?

Posted on July 26, 2016 by: Dr. Rocheford

Did you know that there’s a way to tighten and tone your facial skin, improve facial contouring, and even add a more youthful glow to your appearance – all without the aid of surgery?

Forget skin creams and serums.  This new treatment is known as SkinPen Microneedling – and it’s now available at Rocheford Plastic Surgery in Woodbury, MN.

What is Microneedling?

Board certified plastic surgeon and Rocheford Plastic Surgery founder Dr. Heather Rocheford offers SkinPen Microneedling treatments to patients who are looking to correct the following complexion issues:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Facial scarring
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Skin sagging
  • Loss of contouring

The SkinPen is a small handheld device that creates hundreds of micro-puncture wounds in the treatment area.  Once these punctures have been made, the body immediately gets to work to repair the damage.  To do this, the body increases production of collagen and elastin – the two building blocks for younger, smoother-looking skin.

As a result of just three treatments, clients can see improved skin tone and texture, as well as a minimization of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other complexion concerns.

Sounds Like It Could Hurt.  Does It?

At the first mention of the term “microneedling,” most patients immediately become concerned about any pain associated with the treatment.  However, microneedling feels more like sandpaper; many patients have even compared it to having an electronic toothbrush being rubbed across the skin.

After the treatment, the area will feel like you have a mild sunburn for the next 24 hours or so.  A soothing ointment can be provided to help manage any discomfort with SkinPen Microneedling.  Treatments are typically scheduled six to eight weeks apart.
