Skinlogic Med Spa was the first medical spa in Seattle to offer this treatment and a leader in microneedling treatments. Dermapen Microneedling is an FDA-approved electronic device that uses multiple fine needles to vertically pierce the skin. This causes collagen remodeling and enhances skin rejuvenation. Unlike needle rollers, microneedling uses a precisely-controlled stamping method to reach a set depth in the skin while minimizing excess damage to the epidermis.

How many treatments are necessary to achieve a good response?
Improvement is seen with each treatment but a series of 6 treatments is best to achieve optimal results.
How far apart are treatments done?
Microneedling treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
Is Microneedling safe for darker skin types?
Since no melanin-absorbing laser and no heat are involved, the Microneedling is relatively safer than lasers, such as IPL, for darker skin types*.
Who performs the treatments?
One of our medical estheticians will perform your treatment.
Is Microneedling painful?
Microneedling uses very fine needles and is relatively comfortable. A topical numbing cream is an option and usually not used for esthetic microneedling but needed for deeper medical microneedling.
How long is each treatment?
For a face, each treatment is 30 to 45 minutes.
How is Microneedling different than a needle roller?
Needle rollers also use needles for skin resurfacing but are often too large and unwieldy for tight areas. They are also dependent on hand pressure, so the depth of penetration varies depending on the amount of pressure exerted and the softness of the skin, while the microneedling depth of penetration is set precisely with an electronic dial. There is also lateral trauma to the skin when the needles on a roller pull out of the skin as the wheel turns. This does not happen with the Dermapen, which relies only on vertical needle action.
What are the immediate after-effects?
There is redness and very minimal bleeding.
