SkinPen Microneedling in San Francisco

As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level. Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin. Microneedling is effective for all skin types.

Microneedling Process

Microneedling is performed using the SkinPen, a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the degree of treatment requested by the patient. A topical anesthetic is applied prior to a SkinPen procedure. This allows for a comfortable experience for most people. Generally, patients report feeling just the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.

Microneedling Recovery

The total healing time depends on each individual. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild to moderate sunburn) for one to three days following the microneedling procedure.

Your results will be enhanced with use of medical grade skin care products. We will suggest recommended products during your initial consultation.

Patients can schedule an appointment for microneedling and other skin treatments in San Francisco by calling or emailing Dr. Kenneth Bermudez, a board certified cosmetic surgeon.
