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.
How the SkinPen Microneedling Procedure Works
Each of our bodies has innate processes that will react to injury by producing new cells and extracellular materials (like elastin and collagen) to aid in the healing process that is how SkinPen achieves its results; by taking advantage of that natural process, SkinPen creates temporary micro-sized openings, or micro-channels, in the skin. These “fractionated” micro-channels are created thanks to the brilliant design of the SkinPen’s disposable needle cartridge, which achieves its work without any thermal energy or chemicals applied to the skin.
No major downtime.
What to Expect After SkinPen Procedures
You can expect to experience effects similar to mild sunburns after the procedure; typically some redness, tenderness and some swelling. Despite that, there is no significant downtime after a SkinPen procedure. Patients can return to normal activities and conceal most of the mild side-effects with make-up. In a few days, there will be zero evidence that the SkinPen treatment was performed at all!
