Why consider a DermaPen procedure with Dr. Weber in Denver?

Dr. Stephen Weber, a double board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in Denver, CO, performs customized Micropen procedures to help patients reach their aesthetic goals.

During the Micropen procedure, the device creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin. The skin’s repair processes promote collagen and elastin formation and a thicker and healthier layer of skin gradually forms. Patients can expect results such as:

  • Softened wrinkles
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
  • Improved appearance of scars and stretch marks
  • Smoothing of skin texture

  • Skin responds better to topical skincare products and nutrients
  • Works on the face, neck and chest
  • Reduction in stretch marks

Who makes a good Micropen candidate?

Men and women who would like to improve the appearance of their facial skin by reducing visible signs of aging and/or scars may be candidates for a Micropen procedure with Dr. Weber.

Procedures are usually only suitable for non-smoking patients who are generally healthy and do not have any medical conditions that could impair skin healing.

Patients who scar easily or have sensitive skin may be able to undergo Micropen treatments if special precautions are taken. The definitive way for patients to determine if they are candidates is to schedule and attend an initial Micropen procedure consultation with Dr. Weber in Lone Tree, CO. If you have very complicated skin or trouble healing, we can perform a “patch test” on a hidden area of skin to determine exactly how your skin will respond to treatment. This, however, is rarely needed.

Review - MicroPen

What is Dr. Weber’s approach to using the Micropen?

A Micropen procedure at Weber Facial Plastic Surgery is an outpatient procedure. After the patient is escorted into a Weber Facial Plastic Surgery in-office procedure suite and comfortably positioned in a reclining chair, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin. This ensures the patient feels no pain or discomfort during the procedure.

The Micropen (a handheld device equipped with tiny needles) is gently passed over areas of the face requiring rejuvenation. The tiny needles contained in the Micropen create micro-injuries that are so small they can barely be seen by the naked eye. The total procedure takes approximately 15-30 minutes.

What can I expect from recovery?

Patients can return home shortly after their procedure. Skin redness after the treatment is to be expected. Minor discomfort, swelling, and flaking may also occur. These side effects can be easily controlled by using ice and following Dr. Weber’s post-procedure instructions closely. Patients usually return to work and normal activities the next day. Makeup may be used to cover up any redness. As micro-injuries heal, collagen and elastin are naturally produced, causing skin to shrink and tighten. A new thick and healthy layer of skin forms and results gradually appear.

What can I expect from my initial consultation with Dr. Weber?

Dr. Weber uses a patient-focused approach to deliver natural results. During initial DermaPen consultations, patients receive our undivided attention. The first part of the consultation includes a review of the patient’s medical history and a physical examination. The second part involves an in-depth discussion regarding the patient’s aesthetic goals and the creation of a customized treatment plan. Patients who choose to undergo procedures have their procedure scheduled at a time that is most convenient for them.

Dr. Weber always provides his patients access to before and after photos for microneedling in Denver. This helps you to be aware of what is and isn’t possible with regard to your results. You can also bring in photos of your ideal complexion, so Dr. Weber can get a better impression of your cosmetic goals.

If there are other non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures that are of interest to you, Dr. Weber can discuss these at your consultation as well. These may include Ultherapy, laser skin resurfacing and treatment with dermal fillers and BOTOX.

What is the cost of DermaPen?

DermaPen sessions range from $300 to $700, and around 3 to 5 treatments are usually suggested, depending on your skin’s condition and your cosmetic goals. Dr. Weber will make sure you have a detailed and individualized quote before you leave your consultation, so you can move forward completely informed and confident in your decision.

DermaPen FAQs

Is a Micropen procedure painful?

A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before a Micropen procedure. Ice is applied after the procedure to reduce swelling and inflammation that may cause pain once the topical anesthetic wears off. These precautionary measures drastically reduce the chance of discomfort during the procedure.

Are there risks associated with a Micropen procedure?

There are risks associated with all cosmetic procedures. The risks specific to Micropen treatments are explained to patients during their initial consultation. Because Dr. Weber takes great measures to reduce risks, the overwhelming majority of patients find the benefits of the procedure far outweigh the risks. Micropen treatments are minimally invasive and overall very safe.

How is a Micropen different than other micro-needling devices?

A Micropen is a handheld micro-needling device that is easier to control than other similar devices. The motorized system creates precise micro-injuries that do not hurt the patient. The needle tip can be precisely adjusted to create micro-injuries at various skin depths to treat visible signs of aging and scars according to their severity. Micropen is the ultimate micro-needling device for customized patient care.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed depends on the size of the area(s) being treated and the severity of visible signs of aging and/or scars. In general, patients usually receive 3-5 treatments spaced out over 4 week intervals. Dr. Weber lets patients know how many treatments they will need during initial consultations. Because results are carefully monitored throughout recovery, Dr. Weber is able to give patients very accurate treatment quantity estimations as their treatment progresses.

Can I maximize my Micropen procedure results?

Patients who follow Dr. Weber’s post-procedure instructions should see maximum results. An important part of recovery is protecting the treatment area from the sun. Patients are advised to wear sunscreen when they go outside. Tanning should be avoided until Dr. Weber clears patients to do so. Exercise and physical activity should be avoided for only 24 hours.

Can a Micropen procedure really be used to improve the appearance of acne scars?

Dr. Weber has helped countless patients improve the appearance of acne scars using Micropen procedures. Patients with acne scars are encouraged to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Weber to receive a customized treatment plan.

How is a Micropen procedure used to treat stretch marks?

Micropen procedures can lighten the appearance of stretch marks and reduce their visibility. Procedures are customized to meet the needs of patients. Interested patients are encouraged to contact Weber Plastic Surgery and arrange an initial Micropen consultation specifically for stretch marks.

How do I know if a Micropen procedure is the right treatment option for my condition?

Micropen procedures are used to improve the appearance of visible signs of aging and/or scars. They are not used to change the size and/or shape of facial features. During initial consultations, Dr. Weber gathers information and works with patients to create treatment plans that give them the results they want.

Can I have a Micropen procedure before my wedding?

Patients who are interested in having a Micropen procedure prior to their wedding are encouraged to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Weber as soon as they know their wedding date. This will allow Dr. Weber to create a treatment plan that delivers maximum results before the wedding day.
