Complements What you need to know about microneedling


By Lashelle Kuhlman, licensed aesthetician, reconstructive & cosmetic surgery, Mount Nittany Physician Group

Are you unhappy with the appearance of acne scars and pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles on your face or body? Microneedling by SkinPen® is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared, microneedling technology device that can help you look and feel your best.

How does it work?

By causing controlled micro-injuries to the treatment area, the device stimulates your body’s natural healing process:

  • Inflammation: Your immune system is triggered to disinfect the micro-injuries, remove debris, increase blood flow and create new tissue.
  • Proliferation: Next, new granulation cells rebuild within the micro-injuries and a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Remodeling: The micro-injuries heal and are replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Performed in our office, SkinPen requires no surgery, no downtime and provides incredible results.
