SkinPen Microneedling Therapy in La Costa, CA

MedHero offers SkinPen treatments for facial acne scarring and fine wrinkles of the neck to our patients. SkinPen is a microneedling device that can reduce or eliminate acne scarring in all skin types (light to very dark) in just a few treatments. Here is some more information about this groundbreaking procedure for those who are interested.

What is SkinPen?

The SkinPen Precision System is a handheld microneedling device used for treating facial acne scars and fine wrinkles. The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved the SkinPen for use as a Class II medical device in 2018, following two years of clinical trials.

How It Works

The microneedles in the SkinPen device penetrate the outer layer of the skin during a treatment session. This triggers the body’s natural immune system in order to rebuild new healthy skin tissue in the place of acne scars or fine wrinkles.

When the body’s natural immune system is activated like this, it cleanses the wound from the microneedles and removes debris. The wound then rebuilds and heals itself with new cells and a new system of blood vessels. The end result is that acne scars are replaced with clear, healthy and unscarred skin, along with new blood vessels.

The Treatment Process

After discussing your goals with a doctor at MEDHERO, a full course of treatment will be scheduled. An appointment for a SkinPen treatment typically takes around 30 minutes. The doctor begins by applying a topical skin-numbing cream to the treatment area. Most patients report that the microneedling process feels like a mild vibration against the skin.

We will provide you with a soothing gel that can be applied to the treatment area to keep the skin from drying out. The main side effect of this treatment is a slight reddening of the skin, similar to a sunburn, which resolves on its own in about 72 hours. MEDHERO will also provide you with a full aftercare regimen, for optimal results.

You will start to see results immediately after the first treatment. It’s typical for patients to require three to six treatments, spaced out at 30 days apart, for optimal results.
