SkinPen®: The Next Advancement in Micro-Therapy
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, chest, 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.
Results using SkinPen®
SkinPen® procedures are beneficial to assist in reducing the signs of ageing, improving the appearance of acne scars, as well as rejuvenate aging skin. SkinPen®’s variable needle depth allows for versatility and therefore it can be used on many parts of the body, including the face, neck, and décolleté. Patients may notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the final result for up to 3-6 months following your final session. *Individual results will vary. Oh and if your worried about wearing make-up after the procedure then remember this: Patients typically can resume their normal makeup regimen 2-3 days following their SkinPen® procedure depending on the area and type of procedure performed.
Number of SkinPen® Procedures
The number of procedures required will be determined by your skincare professional based upon your individual procedure goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of 3 procedures spaced about 4 weeks apart. Your provider will develop a procedure plan specific to you and also a maintenance plan to help maintain the rejuvenating effects.
