SkinPen was awarded “Top Rated Treatment for Acne Scars” and “Top Skin Care Device” in the Aesthetic Everything 2019 Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine Awards.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin. The SkinPen microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process.
The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.
When it comes to beautiful skin, the smallest things can make the biggest difference. In as few as three treatments, SkinPen Precision can improve your complexion, improve the appearance of wrinkles on the neck, and improve the appearance of acne scars.
This will reveal smooth, healthy skin that glows from within.
SkinPen works by creating a series of hundreds of microscopic channels into the dermis to stimulate the skin’s natural production of new collagen and elastin, helping skin to look and feel healthier. SkinPen® needles cycle at 100+ stamps/second, potentially creating 1600+ microchannels per second when moving the SkinPen.
Microneedling can be performed using SkinPen, a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool available only through medical professionals. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the degree of treatment requested by the patient.
SkinPen’s variable needle depth allows for maximum versatility, making it safe and effective to use on many parts of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage. Talk to your SkinPen provider to discuss your specific needs.
A topical anesthetic is applied prior to treatment. Generally, patients report feeling just the slight vibration of the SkinPen® during the treatment.
The total healing time depends on each individual. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild to moderate sunburn) for two to four days following the microneedling procedure. Some people may see their skin return to normal in about 24 hours.
The natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress through 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 six months following your final session. *Individual results will vary.
The number of procedures required will be based upon your individual procedure goals and the overall health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of three procedures spaced about four weeks apart.
