SkinPen microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment that can treat a wide range of skin concerns. If you want to achieve brighter skin and a more youthful appearance, consider SkinPen microneedling at Lakefront Wellness.
What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen is the first FDA-approved microneedling treatment designed without chemicals or heat. This clinically tested and proven treatment is unparalleled for its commitment to safety and efficacy in microneedling treatments. SkinPen is only performed by leading dermatologists and estheticians in professional settings so that you can rely on safe treatment and consistently great results.
How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
SkinPen microneedling works in three steps: inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. First, the SkinPen device penetrates the skin’s surface with several microneedles. This triggers a natural immune response to disinfect, remove debris, and increase blood flow to the treated area while activating the creation of new tissue. The healing process will also stimulate collagen production to improve the appearance of aging skin. This process of collagen rebuilding is called proliferation and also includes the development of a new network of blood vessels.
Finally, the new dermal tissues rich in collagen and elastin proteins are formed over time, remodeling the skin with a smoother, more youthful look. The new tissues replace damaged skin cells to reduce the appearance of acne scars, neck wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone and skin texture.

Am I a Candidate for SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen microneedling is safe for most men and women in overall good health. You should wait to receive treatment if you have an active skin infection or acne breakout. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also wait to receive treatment. Clients taking Accutane for acne or medications for bleeding disorders should discuss this with our staff prior to treatment.
What to Expect
To start your treatment, our aesthetician will cleanse the skin and apply a topical numbing cream. The SkinPen device is then passed over the skin in the desired treatment areas and the microneedles puncture the skin, creating microchannels or tiny holes. Results can be seen after 1-3 30-minute treatment sessions.
After each treatment, there is little to no downtime, but you may have mild swelling and redness for 2-4 days. Improvements in your skin quality develop gradually as collagen rebuilds but most clients will see the final results within 6 months. You will see visible improvements in fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and the overall quality of your skin.
