How does the SkinPen work?
Many people use drugstore products to treat a damaged complexion, but these over-the-counter creams and serums can only do so much – they tend to manage surface issues rather than targeting the deeper layers.
Microneedling treatment is different. It works by creating tiny channels in your skin using microscopic needles. These controlled micro-injuries trigger collagen and elastin production, two proteins often associated with tissue firmness and elasticity. The result is skin that looks and feels smoother and more even-toned.
What to expect from SkinPen microneedling in Dallas
Dr. Dauwe begins each treatment with a discussion of your skin – what you want to improve and what areas require the most attention. Since everyone’s skin is different, we create personalized plans to help meet your needs.
For example, patients can add vitamin-infused serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to their SkinPen appointments. These powerful elements enhance your results and speed up recovery times.
Microneedling treatment is a quick and easy procedure, taking between 30 – 60 minutes to complete. We may provide local anesthesia or numbing cream, so the process is as comfortable as possible. Once your skin is clean and free from dirt or oils, Dr. Dauwe passes a handheld device over the treatment areas. Finally, we apply a hydrating moisturizer or serum to help with any post-treatment sensitivity.
Your radiant skin after microneedling
Most people start to see improvements within a few weeks of treatment, but optimal results take up to three months as collagen and elastin continue to develop. We recommend planning all SkinPen appointments around important events, so minor side effects like redness and swelling are not visible.
The good news is patients report skin that looks and feels younger and healthier after undergoing a short series of microneedling sessions. They also find that fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, acne scars, and age spots simply fade away over time.
How to preserve your new healthy skin
After microneedling treatment, there are a few simple ways to protect and preserve your results long-term. Use gentle cleansers and moisturizers to keep your skin clean and hydrated. Wear SPF 30 sunscreen every day to shield against damage caused by harmful UV rays. Dr. Dauwe is happy to recommend additional SkinPen sessions or products to maintain your outcomes.
