With the ability to address a wide range of skin concerns, microneedling is a highly popular, minimally invasive treatment that also has the added bonus of stimulating the growth of collagen, your body’s natural building block to create firm, youthful-looking skin.
What is Collagen Induction Therapy?
This process of controlled skin injury (also called Collagen Induction Therapy) triggers your skin to kick into repair mode, which, in turn, prompts your body to send collagen and elastin to the injuries. Collagen and elastin work together to build healthy, radiant, younger-looking skin.
The healing process begins almost immediately, and there is no tissue destruction because the tiny holes in the skin close very quickly. Depending on the depth of the micro-needling performed, you may see some redness or pinpoint bleeding, which stops almost immediately.
The outcome of microneedling is improved skin texture and firmness, a reduction in pore size, softened wrinkles, scar removal, and reduced stretch marks.
Rejuvenate Your Skin
Considered one of the safest and most effective skin rejuvenation procedures, microneedling is done at Frankel Facial Plastics with the SkinPen device, which is a state-of-the-art microneedling technology. SkinPen is especially unique because it can be used in very precise, more specific areas, or more broadly over the face and neck.
Microneedling with SkinPen helps minimize wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, and reduces the signs of aging. SkinPen provides smooth skin texture and tone, and effectively treats melasma.
What areas can be addressed with SkinPen?
- chest or décolletage
- arms and hands
What skin conditions and concerns can be addressed with SkinPen?
- sagging skin
- acne scars

- uneven skin tone/texture
- age spots or freckles
- large pores

How does SkinPen work?
The SkinPen device is passed over the skin to cause controlled micro-injuries, or penetrations, to the skin. The process is not particularly painful, but you may feel some discomfort during your short treatment, which will take 20-30 minutes.
SkinPen increases the circulation and boosts the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the process ultimately smoothes wrinkles, tightens the skin and remodels scars.
