The SkinPen is a breakthrough device in skin therapy designed to improve conditions including sun damage, fine lines, stretch marks, and scars. It improves the overall health and appearance of the skin in a process referred to as micro-needling. We invite you to learn more about this instrument, the procedure in which it is used, and how it may be able to benefit you.
Micro-needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. A small device called a SkinPen is used to place microscopic openings in the skin; this is the only Class II, FDA-approved micro-needling device marketed in the US. This in-office procedure takes an hour or less to complete and requires no downtime; it prompts the healing process in the body by stimulating the production of collagen, the protein responsible for skin elasticity. This corrects any imperfections such as scars and damaged skin, enabling the skin to rejuvenate and effectively repair itself. The popularity of this procedure is increasing due to the numerous benefits for problem skin.
Two to three months after the original treatment session, you should be able to discern improvement in your skin texture, and any dark spots will likely be less noticeable around this time as well.
The SkinPen improves the look of wrinkles, acne scars, fine lines, and stretch marks on numerous different regions of the body. The SkinPen is also adjustable, enabling the procedure to be customized according to the specific needs and skin thickness of the individual. It’s also worthy to note that the SkinPen is suitable for all different types of skin. The results of the micro-needling procedure can be further optimized by using the right skincare products. These are designed to provide the correct nutrients at the right time.
