What is microneedling?

Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles that create controlled micro-injuries on the skin. This triggers a natural healing response and stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is responsible for firm and youthful-looking skin, so as levels increase, you'll notice a newfound radiance to your complexion.

The SkinPen is the first FDA-approved microneedling device, and it's widely recognized as a leader in this aesthetic realm. This is why La Touche Élite Aesthetics relies on the SkinPen to deliver amazing results. Allow us to perform an assessment and determine your candidacy for skin rejuvenation with our team.

What issues can be addressed with SkinPen microneedling?

Registered nurse anesthetist Jeanine Christian-La Touche offers SkinPen treatments to manage a wide variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and creases
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Hyperpigmentation and dark spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks

The great thing about microneedling is that it manages one or several of the above issues at the same time. Plus, SkinPen works on most skin tones and types, so you can enjoy the benefits of treatment regardless of your unique complexion.

How is SkinPen microneedling performed?

Microneedling is a generally comfortable process that begins with cleaning and preparing the treatment areas. Jeanine Christian-La Touche then applies the SkinPen device to those areas, gliding it across your skin in a gentle manner.

Treatments in Myrtle Beach, SC take 45 – 60 minutes on average and involve minimal discomfort. We may recommend combining microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to further enhance your results. PRP is known to accelerate wound healing and stimulate the reparative process so you can achieve your cosmetic goals even faster.

Your expected results after SkinPen microneedling

You'll begin to notice results within the first few days of microneedling, but minor side effects like redness and swelling may occur. Your complexion will continue to get better over the following weeks and months as collagen production increases and your skin heals.

We encourage patients to care for their skin and practice sun safety to help maximize their outcomes. Our staff recommends gentle cleansers, sunscreen, and other products designed for your post-treatment needs. Patients report noticing significant improvements after just one session.
