SkinPen Microneedling – A safe, effective and natural way to target the signs of aging!

SkinPen Microneedling

We are all looking for a simple, yet effective and safe way to improve our skin’s health. Eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, using good skin care and having consistent facials is a great way to maintain healthy skin, but what options do we have when we need to make corrections to our current skin situation?

Let me introduce SkinPen Microneedling!  This multi-dimensional aesthetic device is versatile, effective and harnesses the power of our body’s own natural healing processes to garner incredible results. Our experience with SkinPen Microneedling has made it one of Collab Medspa’s most popular treatments and is among the favorites of our Aestheticians!

What is SkinPen Microneedling?

Microneedling has been used for Aesthetic purposes since 1995. Devices and protocols have since evolved to be one of the most effective treatments and also the safest.  The SkinPen device is at the forefront of both.  

Microneedling is minimally invasive and requires the use of the SkinPen device which is equipped with 14 very fine stainless steel needles. Creating 1600+ precise micro-injuries per second to your skin, the procedure stimulates your body’s natural healing process. As your skin repairs itself, it produces collagen and elastin, regenerates the elasticity and health of your skin leaving it more firm, radiant and youthful.

What makes SkinPen Different from other Microneedling Devices?

There are a multitude of device options for microneedling. SkinPen Microneedling stands out as the leader in the aesthetic industry and is the first FDA cleared device with their focus on efficacy and safety.  The procedure can cause pin-point bleeding making safety an absolute necessity. Not only does the device have a plastic sleeve that completely covers the hand piece, protecting it from any spatter during the procedure, butFollowing a thorough skin cleansing, we administer a topical numbing cream to guarantee your comfort throughout the procedure. also has the first and only lock-out system which ensures each and every treatment requires a brand new needle cartridge.  Sadly, there have been instances of reusing needle cartridges in the past which is why it is so important that you not only find a trustworthy and professional place that would never put your health or safety at risk but also uses the SkinPen device which guarantees without question a new, sterile needle cartridge every single treatment.

What You Can Expect on Treatment Day:

It’s always a good idea to consult with an experienced Aesthetician before your SkinPen microneedling treatment.  Understanding the procedure and the importance of post care is pivotal in the success of your treatment!

Following a thorough skin cleansing, a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure your comfort during the treatment process. In a methodical pattern, your Aesthetician glides the SkinPen over your skin, making sure every part of your skin has complete coverage with multiple passes. The depth of the needles are adjusted to target specific skin concerns and areas, providing tailored results for your specific skin type, condition and treatment plan.

We pair our SkinPen treatment with iS Clinical’s Youth Serum.  This clinical grade, advanced serum offers additional immediate and long term visible benefits to our SkinPen microneedling. Microneedling with this serum allows us to drive the product down into the micro-channels created with the SkinPen. Immediate benefits are a visibly tighter and brighter complexion. Meanwhile, a Copper Tripeptide ingredient helps to support long-term skin health.  iS Clinical is known for their Extremozyme technology which combines a powerful blend of antioxidants and growth factors derived from plants that thrive in harsh environments which protects against environmental stressors. Youth Serum packs a second punch against aging and promotes a more youthful, vibrant, and resilient complexion.

SkinPen Microneedling helps to regenerate the production of collagen and elastin to promote the integrity and health of your skin.  Your skin will benefit in more than one way from this multi-purpose treatment!
