A beautiful, glowing complexion free of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and imperfections is possible with a microneedling facial. Chronic Care of Richmond offers this breakthrough aesthetic therapy with the FDA cleared Skinpen® microneedling device. This non-invasive procedure promotes the natural healing properties of the skin to encourage healthy, plump and glowing skin in the face, hands and body.
What are the Benefits of a Microneedling Facial?
While a microneedling facial improves the overall appearance of the skin, it is especially beneficial for those with:
- Fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet
- Sun damage, sun spots
- Uneven skin tone or complexion
- Large, visible pores
- Stretch marks
- Skin sagging and aged appearance of skin
- Acne scars, active breakouts and blackheads
Within a few days of the procedure, the skin appears brighter, firmer and more even-toned. Three to five sessions are recommended for best results. Your Chronic Care of Richmond team will discuss with you the best options for your skin complexion. We are able to offer a comfortable experience and an affordable cost for those searching for microneedling facials.
The Microneedling Process
When you arrive for your microneedling facial appointment, your skin will be cleansed and dried. Next, a gentle numbing cream will be applied to your face to prepare for the microneedling therapy. After 15-20 minutes, the cream is removed and the procedure begins. The SkinPen® has adjustable needle depth, controlled speed and a sterile, single-use cartridge for optimal safety. As the device is passed over your skin, the needles penetrate at varying depths to create the necessary micro-channels. Patients may feel slight discomfort or pin-prick pressure during the microneedling facial. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and downtime is minimal. The face may appear red, similar to a mild sunburn, right after the procedure. Any discomfort will be minimal and patients can continue their normal daily activities.

What is a Microneedling Facial using the SkinPen®?
SkinPen® is the only device that has been cleared by the FDA for microneedling procedures. Shaped much like an actual pen, SkinPen® is a small, slender device with 14 stainless steel medical grade needles that can create up to 1,600 micro-injuries per second in the skin. These controlled micro-injuries create micro-channels in the dermis that encourage the production of new collagen and stimulate the skin's natural wound healing process. This natural healing process, once stimulated by the microneedling facial, can smooth over years of sun damage, wrinkles and other imperfections.
