If home skin products are no longer proving effective, but you don't want surgical procedures, try minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling with SkinPen. Plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office in Encinitas, CA. SkinPen microneedling uses several fine needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that contribute to the appearance and health of your skin. Easily performed with other skin treatments, such as serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can help minimize scars, stretch marks, and pores. Schedule a consultation at Schoemann Plastic Surgery to hear more about the results of SkinPen microneedling and ways to customize your treatment for your needs and goals.
"My Husband recently had a surf accident that broke his Jaw. Dr. Schoemann was our saving grace. He made him self available that night in the ER to meet with us and discuss the surgery. He was able to get surgery done the next day. He was available by phone to answer any questions prior to surgery. He did an amazing job on the surgery and gave us such piece of mind putting us at ease through out the whole process. Every follow up visit has been incredible with not only with amazing care but his office is so friendly and on-time. We never feel rushed we have time to think and ask questions. We feel so fortunate to have had him in our time of emergency. We wanted to let everyone how incredible he is with face and jaw repair."- P.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018

You may be a candidate for microneedling if you have light or mild skin problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Microneedling procedures may also reduce the look of scars, pores, and stretch marks. You need to be willing to wait a while before seeing the results of your SkinPen microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health.
Microneedling is done in a treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if desired; however, most patients feel mild or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being treated will be cleansed before the SkinPen handpiece is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is done, a topical treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sun protection since the treated skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
You may experience mild redness and swelling for about one day; however, this should resolve quickly on its own. It can take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin supply increases until you notice significant improvements in the health and appearance of your complexion. You should schedule about 4 – 6 follow-up treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best outcomes and long-term skin health.
