Primera offers SkinPen® microneedling treatments in Orlando, FL to reduce the signs of aging, minimize acne scars, and improve your skin's texture and appearance. A minimally invasive treatment with little to no downtime, microneedling is safe for all skin types and can be used on many areas of the body.
Dr. Edward J. Gross and his certified physician assistant Eileen use the innovative microneedling tool SkinPen® for Orlando men and women who want to improve their skin's appearance. SkinPen creates precise micro-punctures at the treatment site to trigger the skin's natural healing process, generate collagen, and produce safe and long-lasting results.
Proven Technique, Outstanding Results
SkinPen treats areas that are difficult to target with lasers and other devices. Microneedling with SkinPen is effective for the face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back. It can improve conditions including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Acne and acne scarring
- Chicken pox scars
- Stretch marks
Microneedling with a Facial Aesthetic Specialist
SkinPen is a wireless, hand-held device that uses disposable microneedles to create precise micro-injuries below the surface of the skin. The needle pricks prompt the skin to generate new dermal tissue and blood vessels, which ultimately creates tighter skin in the treatment area.
We typically combine enhanced skin treatments with microneedling to help you achieve more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. These options range from PRP (plasma rich platelets) to chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing to PRP therapy. During your consultation, Dr. Gross and his skilled physician assistants will evaluate your skin and create a customized treatment plan that fits your specific needs.
What to Expect
A topical numbing cream is first applied to the skin and left in place for about 30 minutes. Next the skin is cleansed and dried. Your aesthetician will then move the SkinPen® slowly over the treatment areas. Most patients experience little to no discomfort, saying the sensation feels like mild vibrations. A microneedling treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes to perform on the face. Your appointment will be longer if multiple areas are treated or if the procedure is combined with other treatments, such as a PRP.
Many men and women see improvements after only 1 or 2 sessions. However you may require a series of appointments to reach your aesthetic goals. For deeper scars, we can add injectable fillers after a few microneedling treatments to provide optimal results.
The SkinPen microneedling treatment typically causes mild swelling and pinkness in the first 2 to 3 days following the procedure. It feels similar to a mild sunburn, and any discomfort can be managed without pain medication. Most of the pinkness resolves within a few days, resulting in minimal downtime.
