Skin Pen Microneedling

Microneedling can create drastic results on the skin. With the impactful SkinPen device, we can help induce collagen production in your skin and address skin concerns such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and mild acne scars.

What is SkinPen Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure that reduces the appearance of fine lines, aiding in collagen production by creating micro-injuries in the skin with fine needles. During microneedling, these microchannels are created in the epidermis layer, allowing the effects of anti-aging creams, gels, and serums to be better absorbed into the skin, resulting in softer, thicker skin.

At Smile-Chic, our team works with the SkinPen precision tool, an FDA-approved device that’s designed to work without the need for chemicals, heat, or stress. It is clinically tested and proven to provide the skin with collagen-producing effects and is considered one of the most recommended devices by leading dermatologists and estheticians.

So, how does SkinPen transform the skin? SkinPen microneedling follows a three-step process:

  • Inflammation: The microneedles penetrate the skin’s surface, causing a natural immune response, and then work to disinfect, remove dirt and debris, activate new tissue regeneration, and increase blood flow.
  • Proliferation: By creating micro-channels or tiny holes, the SkinPen helps build new granulation cells that include collagen proteins and cause a network of blood vessels to develop.
  • Remodeling: Due to the microchannels, new dermal tissues form rich in collagen and elastin proteins to improve skin quality, visibly reducing facial acne scars and neck wrinkles, leaving skin younger-looking.

Because of its versatility, it can be used on many parts of the body. At Smile-Chic, we work with SkinPen from the neck up, as the natural repair process can be better managed with your face’s skin and texture. The total healing time for this procedure depends on the individual, and most patients will experience redness for two to four days after the procedure.

At Smile-Chic, we can offer cleanses and topical anesthesia to minimize discomfort during your treatment. The device creates millions of controlled microchannels; this procedure can easily be combined with chemical or enzyme peels to minimize scars, Hydrafacial for extensive hydrating effects, fillers add fullness and volume, and much more.

Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, and med spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Meet our team at Smile-Chic, the premier med spa! We’ll be happy to show you what makes us an excellent choice for all of your treatment needs.

Medical esthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels, and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas and health clinic offices are more intense and offer more noticeable results.

Esthetic medicine includes all procedures in esthetics, except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Medical grade esthetic procedures include dermal fillers, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments, chemical peels, hydrafacials and many more.

To make an appointment at Smile-Chic, please use our online scheduling system or contact us directly by calling 361-356-1116.

We also recommend that you schedule future appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time is available, as nights and Saturdays are the most requested times.

All booked appointments will be confirmed by our staff via a telephone call or text reminder or email a day or two before your appointment. Please provide us with a valid email address. Scheduling an appointment is your acceptance of these policies.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical spa, we require new patients to fill out a brief medical history information and consent form.

If you are scheduled for dermal fillers, laser treatments or special peels we recommend you arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can properly prepare you skin for the treatment.

If you have any additional questions or special need, call Smile-Chic, a Corpus Christi Med Spa at (361) 356-1116 and our scheduling consultants can assist you.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the next patient’s session can begin on time.

If you are not able to be on time we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible.

With some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
