SkinPen® microneedling stimulates a healing response that visibly renews your skin
SkinPen Microneedling, also called “collagen induction therapy,” can help with problems like those caused by acne, sun damage, pregnancy, and aging. Our SkinPen microneedling device creates tiny openings throughout the treatment area to trigger your body’s healing response, which floods the area with your own natural collagen, elastin, and growth factors.
In the weeks following your treatment, you will see the development of an improved tightness, an even skin tone, and a healthy glow. Because microneedling stimulates the growth of your natural collagen and elastin, this treatment actually encourages your body to continue to rejuvenate long after the procedure.

How microneedling works
Microneedling works by stimulating your body’s natural healing process. 90% of patients recommend SkinPen microneedling to family and friends.
Why choose SkinPen for microneedling?
As the only FDA-cleared device for microneedling, SkinPen offers very consistent results and allows the aesthetician to control the depth of the needle based on the patient’s skin type.
What can I expect during my SkinPen microneedling treatment?
We prepare your skin with a mild, topical anesthetic. After that sets in, we clean and dry your skin. We run the SkinPen over the treatment area to create tiny, invisible openings on the surface. This process may take anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour, depending on the surface area.
What does microneedling treat?
This procedure can help to alleviate many skin concerns, including:
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin
- Sun damage & discoloration
- Dull, blemished skin
- Enlarged pores
SkinPen can be applied to many different areas of the skin, like the hands and chest. If you have a specific concern you want to address with microneedling, we usually recommend a regimen of treatments for optimal results. You are especially likely to see a tangible difference after multiple treatments.
What is a microneedling treatment like?
To get a sense of the microneedling procedure with SkinPen, you can watch Dr. Branman and Crystal demonstrate and discuss SkinPen microneedling on Good Morning Arkansas:
Does microneedling hurt?
Patients report a light tingling or buzzing sensation during the treatment. Most patients find the process to be comfortable, but we do apply a topical anesthetic ahead of your procedure to prevent potential discomfort.
How long will it take to heal after microneedling?
You will leave your treatment with irritation equivalent to a minor sunburn that should clear up in the next day or two. We recommend avoiding makeup or harsh products during the day of your treatment and the day after.
