Are you tired of acne scars and skin irregularities? Carolina Plastic Surgery offers a transformative solution that will greatly improve the quality of your skin with long-lasting results.Micro-needling is one of the world’s most advanced skincare technologies that effectively targets a wide range of skin imperfections and creates a smoother, softer complexion overall. We utilize the SkinPen – the latest in micro-needling and Collagen Induction Therapy technology.
BenefitsSkinPen micro-needling can help target and reduce the appearance of multiple skin imperfections, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Acne scarring
SkinPen micro-needling typically carries no side effects aside from slight flushing or redness of treated areas, which typically lasts no longer than the first few days.
What is SkinPen Micro-Needling?Using precisely-spaced micro-needles in a small, sterile cartridge, the SkinPen is an automated pen-like device that is moved slowly over treatment areas. The micro-needles create vertical microchannels in the skin that are invisible to the naked eye and penetrate the epidermis as well as the top layer of the dermis. This process, known as Collagen Induction Therapy, stimulates the skin’s natural healing response and increases the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of your skin, to renew, strengthen and improve the skin’s flexibility.

How to Prepare
SkinPen Micro-Needling TreatmentA SkinPen treatment typically lasts twenty to thirty minutes, after which you can return to your regular activities. When you arrive for your treatment, your skin will be cleaned and a topical numbing agent will be applied. Once the numbing agent has taken effect and you are comfortable, Dr. Saini will begin the treatment. A pen-like device with fine needles will be gently applied to the predetermined area. This action will be repeated until all of the treatment areas are addressed. Dr. Saini will give you instructions on how to care for your skin and what is expected of you to ensure your best results.
Post Treatment Care & ResultsWhen you leave your appointment, your skin will be red and may feel similar to a sunburn. You will be given specific instructions on what products will be safe to use on your skin. Dr. Saini may provide or recommend a certain moisturizer that speeds your skin’s recovery. Your skin will be sensitive and exposure to sunlight will need to be avoided to ensure you heal properly and quickly. Intense activity will need to be avoided for the first seventy-two hours as sweating and increased blood flow can further irritate the skin.
Any redness should have diminished after forty-eight hours and a light layer of makeup can be applied after twenty-four hours to help reduce the appearance of redness.This treatment will decrease the visibility of scarring, wrinkles and will lift your skin. Your skin will begin to firm and fill out in the weeks following treatment. Typically, three to four treatments are needed to provide a patient’s best results. Dr. Saini will work with you to determine how many treatments you will need to achieve your best outcome. Your results will be long-lasting and will greatly improve your skin quality.
