SkinPen is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.
The variable depth (.25mm to 2.5mm) of SkinPen and the cordless design provide significant versatility to create change in many areas of the body, including the face, neck, dÃ©colletÃ©, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The actual procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of damage on the skin and results in little to no downtime for the patient
HOW SKINPEN WORKS
HOW SKINPEN MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS WORK
Our bodies have a natural repair and healing process that reacts to injury by producing new collagen and elastin. SkinPen initiates this injury response using microneedling – a technique that creates hundreds of temporary micro channels or openings in the skin without any thermal energy or skin removal. These are called fractionated injuries.
BENEFITS OF FRACTIONATED APPROACH
The temporary micro channels allow for optimal delivery, penetration and diffusion of topical treatments into the skin quick, safe and effective method to induce production of collagen that is non-ablative (no skin removal), requires no thermal energy and promotes quick, scar-free healing safe for all skin types with no risk of fibrosis No significant downtime
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS
Similar to mild sunburn, redness, swelling and tenderness may follow the procedure, but patients can expect no significant downtime with SkinPen. After just one day, patients may return to normal activities and are able to conceal most of the signs of treatment with makeup. Within days, there will be no evidence that any treatment was performed at all.
