What is SkinPen®?
SkinPen® is a non-surgical, aesthetic microneedling device. It creates tiny punctures in the skin to superficially damage the collagen, which alerts the brain that new collagen needs to be created. Once we reach our 30s, naturally occurring collagen production stops. SkinPen® acts as a messenger to the brain so that new collagen can work to create a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
SkinPen® uses patent-pending, medical grade stainless steel disposable needle cartridges, which reduce the likelihood of cross-contamination. The cartridges have a lockout mechanism ensuring single use. SkinPen® is lightweight and features an ergonomic design which allows the experienced members of our medical team precision and versatility.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
SkinPen® rejuvenates aging skin, as well as improving the appearance of stretch marks and acne scars. Other potential benefits include:
- The minimally invasive procedure means little to no recovery time.
- Noticeable results in less than a day.
- Safe to use on all skin types.
Patients may notice better skin immediately, but collagen production is a process so the finished product may not appear for up to six months following your final session. Depending on the skin’s health and the damage it has received some patients may need more than one treatment to achieve their desired results. Individual results will vary. SkinPen® requires post-procedure care for optimal results. Our medical team will discuss that with you at your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate?
