Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses collagen induction therapy to help eliminate and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, acne scars, large pores, hyperpigmentation, and hair loss. Microneedling treatment is an ideal, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment for those who want to restore a more youthful appearance.

During microneedling, a tool is used to create thousands of tiny “micro” channels throughout the skin to allow for better absorption of topical products that can help treat and improve the appearance of damaged skin. At GLOW Surgical Arts, the CosmoPen microneedle can help naturally induce collagen production and treat pigmentation thanks to its ability to pierce into the skin using a vertical movement. The device offers the same results as most laser treatments, without any associated pain, downtime, or thermal damage to the skin.
Patients who receive microneedling treatment with the CosmoPen are able to absorb about 80 percent of topical skin care products into their skin, whereas patients who haven’t had microneedling treatment are only able to absorb about 3 percent of the same skin care products. Following treatment, microneedling patients are able to generate higher amounts of collagen and elastin as a result of their skin working to heal from CosmoPen. The end result is a tighter, plumper, and more youthful-looking appearance.
What happens during microneedling treatment?
During a microneedling treatment, your cosmetic surgeon will apply topical products to your face that can help restore your skin to a youthful appearance. Your surgeon will then move the CosmoPen around your face in alternating patterns to ensure that all areas of your skin are being fully penetrated by the tiny needles. Minor bleeding may occur as a result of the needles penetrating your face, but usually stops within just a few minutes.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience minimal discomfort that feels similar to that caused by minor sunburn, for up to 48 hours. Your cosmetic surgeon may advise you not to apply makeup to the treated area for up to six hours following the microneedling procedure.
Microneedling with the CosmoPen is ideal for patients who want to remove and minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other unwanted skin blemishes without undergoing more invasive treatments. The CosmoPen microneedling treatment is also ideal for patients who want a more youthful appearance while reversing the effects of aging on the skin.
