Life-Changing Results

SkinPen® Microneedling

Clear, vibrant skin is associated with youth and beauty. Unfortunately, aging, environmental conditions, lifestyle habits, hormone changes, and various other factors can lead to dull or damaged skin.

The expert providers at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery want you to feel comfortable and confident in your appearance, and they understand how important healthy skin is to that goal. Microneedling, also sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, is one of the many effective skin rejuvenation treatments available at BioSpa, our premier MedSpa.


What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a simple, minimally invasive treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing process to revitalize your skin. There are several microneedling devices and techniques used. They all involve using tiny, sterilized needles to cause micro-injuries or microchannels in the skin. 

Your body reacts to the micro-injuries by triggering your skin’s healing process. This causes collagen and elastin production to increase and dead cells to be cleared away, revealing fresh, new skin with fewer imperfections.

Microneedling has been a popular treatment for decades and is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. Microneedling is most commonly used on the face but can also treat several areas of the body like the hands, chest, neck, and more. Additionally, collagen induction therapy can boost the effectiveness of your skincare products, as it allows your skin to absorb the ingredients better.

At Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery, we’re devoted to helping you find the best treatment for your cosmetic goals. During your consultation, one of our BioSpa experts will examine your skin to formulate a treatment plan tailored to your needs. If you are interested, we are also happy to discuss our various financing options to make your treatment as affordable as possible. 

Learn More About SkinPen® Microneedling

Our expert team at BioSpa offers multiple microneedling techniques. Pen microneedling involves using a handheld device with tiny sterilized needles to gently create microchannels in the skin. The SkinPen® was the first microneedling device to be FDA-cleared. It is also made in the United States and is rigorously tested for safety and efficacy.

Before your microneedling session, your BioSpa provider will apply a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort. A SkinPen® microneedling treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Microneedling requires little to no downtime, depending on the techniques used. Deeper treatments may require a small amount of downtime, but many people return to their regular activities the same day.

After your microneedling session, your face may be slightly pink, swollen, and flaky. Symptoms should subside within three to five days. Because your skin will be more sensitive to the sun after treatment, you should protect it by wearing sunscreen.

The benefits of microneedling will appear gradually, as it takes time for your body to increase collagen and elastin production. You’ll likely start seeing results within a week of microneedling, and these will continue to improve over time.

Many patients need more than one microneedling treatment to see optimal results. Your BioSpa provider may recommend three or four treatments for mild skin concerns, while patients with more severe issues may need six to eight microneedling sessions. These treatments should be scheduled 10-14 days apart. After that, you may choose to schedule maintenance treatments every 6-12 months.

Most healthy adults can benefit from skin-rejuvenating treatments like microneedling. Ideal candidates may have one or more of the following skin concerns: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars or surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Large pores
  • Skin laxity 
  • Sun damage

Patients with active skin infections, rashes, or wound healing problems may not be good candidates for microneedling procedures. A skincare expert at BioSpa can evaluate your skin and recommend if microneedling is the right treatment for you.

Your microneedling treatment will be unique to your needs, and the cost depends on the size of the treatment area and the technique used. Factors such as geographic location and provider experience can also influence the price. On average, microneedling costs $200-$800 in the United States.

However, this is only a rough estimate, and it’s important to remember that your total expense will depend on how many sessions you need to achieve your desired results. We encourage you to request a consultation with an expert at BioSpa to develop a treatment plan and receive an accurate quote.
