What is Medical Microneedling with skin Pen?
SkinPen microneedling creates microchanneling, stimulates new collagen and elastin production. Therefore we can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars, and minimize wrinkles – all with little to no downtime.
What are the conditions treated by Skinpen microneedling?
SkinPen is remarkably effective for:
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Loss of resiliency
- Large pores
- Thin skin
- Lax skin
How SkinPen works
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. Skinpen 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
Expect mild sunburn, redness, swelling and tenderness may follow the procedure. Patients can expect minimal downtime with SkinPen. After just one or two days patients may return to normal activities .
They 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.
