Natural Foundations Medical Group is one of the most experienced providers to offer this innovative procedure to patients on California’s Central Coast.
What is Micro-Pen Treatment?
The procedure is also called micro-needling or Collagen Induction Therapy, a skin rejuvenating therapy to treat the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars on the body and face. Micro-needling can be safely used in a variety of patients with all skin types.
We offer two devices to perform the procedure: The New Bellus SkinPen and the MicroPen® Elite. These state-of-the-art medical devices induce the self-repair process of the skin and trigger collagen synthesis resulting in younger looking skin – in a natural manner.

How Does Micro-Pen Treatment Work?
For this procedure a topical numbing agent to ensure the patient’s comfort. While the Micro-Pen is working, its tiny needles located on the tip of the device create a large number of small holes and channels in the skin. The microscopic, intended injuries will stimulate your skin’s ability to heal itself. During the natural healing process, the skin is resurfaced by building new collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, your skin will look softer and firmer, show fewer lines or wrinkles, and discolorations, scars or stretch marks start to disappear. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure takes up to 45 minutes.
Typically, the micro-pen treatment is done in six sessions, performed about every 4 weeks for optimal collagen and elastin formation during the natural healing process. Results will continue to improve up to 6 months after the micro-needling treatment.
What Happens After the Treatment?
Patients become red during the procedure due to pinpoint bleeding, which is just temporary and normal. Directly after the micro-needling you will notice increased circulation in the skin. Most patients can expect their skin to be back to normal within 24 to 48 hours. Some may experience redness for up to 4 days, but this is rare.
After the micro-pen treatment, you will look as if you have a mild sunburn, and you will notice an immediate fresh glow to your skin. A feeling of tightness in the skin is common, which most patients actually appreciate – like a mini facelift.
Is Micro-Pen Treatment Right For Me?
This treatment is an excellent choice to rejuvenate skin in general. It is a perfect alternative for laser- phobic patients, or those who are not interested in other skin correcting procedures such as fillers, chemical peels, or prescription products. It is a minimally invasive solution for improving the signs of aging by correcting fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. In addition, micro-needling can be done anywhere on the body.
