Collagen and elastin are the natural fibrous proteins responsible for supple, youthful skin. One aspect of aging is the reduction of the natural production of these skin-firming proteins. SkinPen microneedling sends a message to your skin to trigger higher levels of collagen and elastin production.

At Balinger Plastic Surgery, you will discover an environment of support, empowerment, and personalized service. We listen, we care, and we deliver a range of skin rejuvenation treatments, including SkinPen microneedling.

We focus on ensuring you are comfortable throughout your procedure. Your microneedling treatment will be performed with precision, using a methodology geared to produce optimal rejuvenation. In the days and weeks following your treatment, you will enjoy seeing your skin becoming firmer, smoother, and more resilient.

Time to enhance your facial skin? Let’s talk about microneedling

SkinPen is an award-winning device. The treatment can make acne scars less visible, rejuvenating and firming aging skin. It is safe for all skin colors and can significantly enhance skin quality on the face, neck, and decolletage. This treatment could be the ideal way to rejuvenate your skin if you have any of the following issues you would like to improve:

  • Acne scars
  • Sagging skin
  • Crepey skin
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Uneven skin color

We invite you to meet with Dr. Balinger to discuss SkinPen microneedling and our other anti-aging, skin rejuvenation treatments. If you are considering a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure, you deserve to experience the results of our custom SkinPen microneedling treatments.

Enhance your skin quality – no surgery required

SkinPen microneedling can be performed on your face, neck, along the jawline, and to firm crepey skin on the decolletage. The results appear over time and include:

  • Reduce large pores
  • Smooth uneven skin texture from acne breakouts
  • Smooth wrinkles and lines
  • Improve the look of stretch marks
  • Reduce the appearance of age spots and sun spots
  • Improve rosacea
  • Enhance skin thickness and firmness

Meet with Dr. Balinger

If you are considering a skin rejuvenating procedure, meet with Dr. Balinger in a private consultation to talk about what you hope to achieve. If you have had microneedling in the past, you have seen the results and love it. If you are new to the process, he will answer all your questions and advise you whether this treatment is the best approach for you.

Many of our loyal patients rely on regular SkinPen microneedling treatments to outsmart nature and keep their skin looking fresh and youthful for the long term. The treatment is fast, reasonably easy to experience, and produces visible skin-firming, lifting results.

Getting ready

Before your appointment, we urge you to stop taking any blood-thinning medications or supplements. The types of medications to avoid include Aleve, aspirin, ibuprofen, ginkgo, vitamin E, and prescribed blood thinners. Speak to your prescribing doctor if you take blood-thinning medications to ensure you can safely stop for one week before your treatment.


The SkinPen microneedling experience

Before your treatment, your skin is numbed with a topical cream or gel to make the experience more comfortable. Once numbed, the device is applied to your skin to create the microchannels, focusing on areas that may need more attention, such as smile lines, acne-scarred areas, wrinkles, crepey skin, or sagging. You will feel the device as it creates the collagen-inducing channels, but most patients find it reasonably easy to experience.

After your treatment is complete, a serum will be applied to soothe your skin, and you are free to return to your usual activities. Your skin may appear slightly reddened, with pinpoint bleeding, but little else. For best results, we advise four to six microneedling sessions about one month apart.
