SkinPen® for Microneedling
Stimulate Collagen and Elastin for a ReFreshed Look in Milwaukee!
The human body heals wounds by boosting its immune system and building new tissue to repair openings in the skin. This amazing ability can be harnessed to improve the overall look of the skin with microneedling. Milwaukee’s ReFresh Aesthetic Center™ uses SkinPen® II for this treatment, which can reduce the appearance of scars, repair damage from ultraviolet radiation, stimulate, collagen/elastin remodeling, reduce pore size, and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. Dermal collagen remodeling will continue to improve for up to six months after your final treatments.
SkinPen® II speeds up natural repair processes by making tiny channels in the skin. Not only do these prompt healing, they also allow for topicals to more easily work their way deep into skin, below the outermost later, for further rejuvenation.
Who Is a Candidate for Microneedling?
Virtually anyone who would like to address skin tone, texture, firmness, acne scars, stretch marks, and similar cosmetic conditions may be a good candidate for microneedling with SkinPen® II. The skin care treatment is suitable for every skin type.
What Areas Can Microneedling Treat?
This treatment is appropriate for addressing cosmetic issues on the face and neck, décolletage, arms and hands, legs, belly, and back.
How Is Microneedling Administered?
First, patients receive a layer of serum, which is spread thinly over the skin to be treated. Once a specific skin type is identified and a corresponding treatment is selected, the SkinPen® II device will be gently guided over the area.
What Does a Treatment Feel Like?
Many patients say that a microneedling treatment is well tolerated with topical anesthetic cream applied prior to the service. The device itself is designed to have multiple settings for a customized experience, which is made even more personal by a trained and experienced provider. Anyone with concerns about how the session will feel can raise them during the initial consultation.
How Long Does a Microneedling Session Take?
A SkinPen® II treatment typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Specifics depend on the area to be treated.
What Is the Post-Treatment Downtime?
Every treatment is different, as is each patient, so recovery and healing can vary from person to person. While some find that they are fully healed in just 24 hours, others will take two to four days for the “pinkness” common to treated skin to resolve. Products are available to promote natural healing processes in the skin.

When Will Microneedling Results Be Visible?
Skin may have a healthy glow right away after a treatment, but since collagen and elastin take time to grow in the skin, the best results will take four to six weeks to reveal themselves. Patients can expect their cosmetic results to improve for up to six months after their last session.
How Many Microneedling Treatments Are Necessary to Get Results?
The course of treatment will be determined by your skincare professional based on your individual treatment goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of three treatments spaced about four weeks apart. For patients with more severe skin issues, additional sessions may be recommended.
