A safe & effective way to rejuvenate skin and treat scars & wrinkles
Microneedling is a procedure that involves an electric skin-needling device.
The device contains 9 very fine needles used to break down old scar tissue and push skin cell generation. Cell production leads to the creation of new layers of elastin and collagen fiber and leads to improved blood flow in the skin.
Skin Pen is a Microneedling device that causes smaller controlled injuries that stimulate the skin’s healing process. The injuries trigger the production of cytokines and growth factors that lead to the remodeling of elastin and collagen. The treatment is safe and effective for all skin types.
Venus Viva Microneedling, also referred to as nanofractional microneedling is a special device that resurfaces without having to puncture the skin. The device works to remold the skin from the inside out by repairing signs of damage that are visible on the surface such as acne scarring, sun damage, and deep wrinkles. The treatment is safe and effective for all skin types.
Unlike other Microneedling devices, the Venus Viva uses tiny pins to remold your skin tissue and safely deliver heat without puncturing the skin. This makes the wounds smaller and the treatment more comfortable.
Microneedling is cost-effective and suitable in areas where chemical peels or laser resurfacing are not – for example, around the eyes or mouth.
Patients report overall tolerance to the treatment, which has minimal downtime. Better yet, it is easy to individualize. For instance, areas with skin damage that require a more aggressive approach will undergo treatment with longer needles.
Rejuvenating has never been so easy! Microneedling - sometimes called collagen induction therapy - is a simple, fast, and safe treatment for wrinkles and scars. Because the top layer of skin -a.k.a the epidermis- stays intact, the procedure is safe upon repeated sessions.
When using a microneedling device with topical serums, the skin's absorption of vitamins, enzymes, lipids, and other ingredients is enhanced. The repair process begins almost immediately.
The treatment is completed in as little as 30 minutes or as long as 90 minutes — this time depends on the size of the area you want microneedling.
Multiple treatments are necessary for optimal results. The number of sessions depends on the skin condition targeted for treatment.
There is redness for about 24 hours, yet, most people feel comfortable going out in public after that first day. Laser procedures and chemical peels are more invasive and require more downtime.
Microneedling is safe and effective for people of every skin color. Since micro-needling doesn't produce the heat that lasers do, there is little risk of developing dark spots after treatment.
This process does not remove tissue; therefore, there's little to no risk of infection; this is just another reason the recovery time is so short – and another advantage for those with active lifestyles.
Microneedling pens like the Skin Pen have an ergonomic design, and the needle depth is adjustable. Meaning that just about any part of your body can be treated. It's also able to treat areas on the neck, chest, abdomen, back, hands, arms, and legs. The pen is gently moved across your skin, covering all the treatment area. Topical lidocaine cream makes the procedure virtually painless.
These pens are motorized and allow precise control of the needle depth – from 0.25 to 2.5 mm. Applying a thin layer of hyaluronic acid to your skin, and the practitioner selecting the depth needed, you can be rest assured that your skin is going back in time most safely and comfortably.

It begins with numbing and cleaning the skin using a collagen-stimulating product, Vitamin C serum, or a skin lightener. A small pen with 9 small needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allow for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid is used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
Medical microneedling is safe on all skin types and colors. Skin microneedling can be used on sensitive and fragile areas (eyes, neck, back of hands) that cannot be treated easily with other procedures. Microneedling is not suitable for patients who have used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months, have open wounds, cuts or abrasions, have had radiation skin treatment within the last year, are suffering from any skin infection, condition, or herpes simplex in the area of concern, are pregnant or breast-feeding, have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing.
Some of the conditions that medical microneedling is known to improve include: mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks
Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to a slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take a few months to appear.
