SkinPen microneedling is used to treat acne scarring, minimize fine lines, reduce the appearance of pore size and stimulate collagen. SkinPen is safe foe all skin types and is not limited to the face, neck and chest it is often used on the torso, thighs and breasts to treat undesirable stretch marks and scars.
What is SkinPen Precision Microneedling?
SkinPen’s mechanical process is a versatile treatment that’s usable year-round, regardless of skin type. SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
How SkinPen Visibly Transforms Skin?
The SkinPen treatment works in three simple steps, designed to activate the skin’s natural healing process. Following each session, the skin begins to heal itself, looking more renewed and rejuvenated over time.
Step 1: Inflammation
Step 2: Proliferation
Step 3: Remodeling
After treatment, you may note that your skin feels tighter and looks brighter than before. You might need several microneedling sessions to achieve the results you want to see.
How should I prepare for microneedling?
When you arrive for your initial SkinPen treatment, a topical numbing gel is applied to the area for comfort during treatment. Most SkinPen treatments take approximately 30 minutes and recovery time is minimal. Many patients return to work the next day. Typically most patients experience a mild redness (similar to a sunburn) that subsides in 1-2 days. SkinFuse post care products are given to the patient to ensure patients have safe products to use post treatment. Most patients receive 3 treatments one month apart for optimal results.
