SkinPen® Microneedling


It’s no secret that microneedling is one of the most popular and effective skincare treatments available. With its explosion in popularity among celebrities and influencers over the past few years, many patients want to see what the hype is about. At Gilpin Facial Plastics, we strive to offer the best in skincare treatments so you can achieve a healthy glow that leaves you looking awake and youthful. Fortunately, SkinPen® is an excellent treatment for most skin types and can be a regular part of your skincare regimen.


Microneedling is a quick and easy skincare treatment that uses 14 accupuncture-needles to create tiny channels in the skin with a specialized handpiece. These channels trigger the skin’s natural healing processes where collagen is created without damaging the surrounding cells. This process is sometimes called collagen induction therapy (CIT). Although many microneedling procedures use a tool called a dermaroller, SkinPen is a specialized handpiece that “stamps” the skin for greater control and targeted treatment.

Although the methods might seem strange, microneedling can have a lot of benefits. Because the process triggers your body’s collagen production, these healthy new cells give a rejuvenated, youthful appearance to the skin while your skin’s underlying collagen matrix is enhanced. This can make your skin more supple, firm, and supported.

Microneedling works best as a series of treatments so that your skin continues to rejuvenate and repair itself. In particular, microneedling has been shown to improve many different skin concerns like acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, signs of aging, visible pores, pigmentation, and early stretch marks.


One of the biggest benefits of SkinPen is that many different skin types can be treated, and it isn’t limited by things like skin tone or age (whereas treatments like chemical peels can come with a risk of hyperpigmentation with certain skin). It can even be used on some areas of thin or sensitive skin since the SkinPen handpiece can be adjusted for a specific treatment depth. One of the few limiting factors of microneedling is the presence of active infections or conditions like acne or lesions. Similarly, any history of abnormal scarring or keloids can be reason to look at other treatment options. For these reasons, it’s important to discuss your skin and concerns with our skincare specialists.


The procedure begins with a thorough cleanse of your skin and some careful planning so that your treatment will be tailored to you and your concerns. Then, the SkinPen device is applied to the skin where it creates micro-channels. A serum with active ingredients to suit your skincare goals can be applied as well so that it can easily penetrate the skin using the micro-channels. Once the whole area is treated, the skin is soothed, and you can return home.


Immediately after a SkinPen procedure, you can expect some slight swelling and redness, similar to a sunburn. However, this usually lasts for only a day or two. We require you to use only the products supplied by our office for the first 24 hours and then you can begin using your sunscreen and other skincare products.

Most patients begin to see improvement in their skin at one week after their first treatment. Although our skincare specialists can recommend the right treatment package for you, the general recommendation is a series of three to six treatments spaced one month or more apart. This gives your skin plenty of time to recover between treatments so you can maximize your results.


Dr Gilpin and his staff are the absolute best and I had an incredible experience with them before, during and after my procedure. They are knowledgeable and caring and I am very grateful for my experience with them!

I cannot recommend Dr Gilpin highly enough. He is so extremely knowledgeable and considerate in making the patient comfortable with all decisions and during the procedure.

Most of all Dr Gilpin is a true kind and professional surgeon!

Everyone at Gilpin Facial is wonderful! From the front desk, to the nurses to Dr. Gilpin himself.
