Welcome to Renew Med Spa, where we believe that beautiful skin is healthy skin. We introduce you to one of our most effective treatments, microneedling with SkinPen. This non-invasive procedure activates your body’s innate healing processes to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks on the face and body, leaving you with smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
The Ultimate Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This, in turn, helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone. At Renew Med Spa, we use SkinPen, a state-of-the-art microneedling device that is FDA-approved and clinically proven to deliver exceptional results.

How Microneedling Works
Microneedling creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s dermis, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. The tiny needles penetrate the skin’s surface, causing small channels or micro-wounds that stimulate the production of growth factors and cytokines, which are essential for collagen synthesis.
The newly formed collagen and elastin fibers repair the damaged skin, resulting in a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Additionally, the microchannels also improve the absorption and efficacy of topical skincare products.
Optimal Safety & Efficacy with SkinPen
At Renew Med Spa, we use the SkinPen, a state-of-the-art microneedling device that has been approved by the FDA and clinically proven to be safe and effective. SkinPen uses sterile, disposable needles to ensure the highest level of safety and prevent cross-contamination. The device has adjustable needle depth for customized treatments tailored to each patient’s unique skin type. We use SkinPen to minimize side effects and maximize results.
Boost Your Results with PRP & PRF
For patients looking to enhance the results of microneedling, Renew Med Spa offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) treatments. PRP and PRF are derived from a patient’s blood and contain high concentrations of growth factors and cytokines for healing and tissue regeneration. When applied topically to the skin following microneedling, PRP and PRF can stimulate collagen synthesis and improve skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.
The Microneedling Session
At Renew Med Spa, a microneedling session typically takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area and your needs. Before the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to the skin to ensure comfort. The SkinPen device is gently moved over the treatment area, creating tiny microchannels on the skin’s surface. After the procedure, a calming serum is applied to soothe the skin, and you can resume your normal activities immediately.

Side Effects & Recovery
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure with very few side effects. Some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, and tenderness immediately after the procedure, which usually subsides within a few hours to a few days. You are advised to avoid exposure to the sun, strenuous exercise, and applying makeup for at least 24 hours following the procedure. It is also recommended to use a gentle cleanser and avoid harsh skincare products for a few days. You can resume your normal activities immediately — no downtime.
Expected Results & Frequency
You can expect noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance within a few days to a week after your first session. While a single session can yield visible results, we recommend a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments needed may vary depending on the severity of your skin concerns. Our skincare specialists work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.
