The Benefits of Microneedling with Skinpen

Updated: Mar 6



The term “microneedling” can mean several different things in the beauty industry. While it is meant to refer to a minimally invasive method of renewing and rejuvenating the skin to be performed in a medical setting, the term has been co-opted to include unsafe methods and knockoff treatments. Today, we’ll discuss what Microneedling with SkinPen® means to us at Coco Med Spa in St. Pete and why it’s the best option for safe, effective results that you will love.


What is Microneedling?


Microneedling is a facial treatment that creates micro-injuries in the skin for the purpose of activating the production of new collagen and elastin as your skin heals itself. This results in smoother, firmer skin that appears more youthful.


Who Can Perform Microneedling?


There are many methods by which individuals may attempt microneedling but many are neither regulated nor safe. Tools like derma rollers and other similar items are sold for use at home but they often cause more harm than good and do not possess the ability to produce spa-quality results. Even worse than poor results, tools like these can lead to infection, pigmented marks, and scarring due to the improper angle at which the spikes on a derma roller, or similar tool, enter the skin. Microneedling should only ever be performed by an educated and licensed professional who is well-versed in the procedure itself and proper sanitation.
