SKINPEN MICRONEEDLING

SkinPen Microneedling

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.

  • Reduces the signs of aging; skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles

  • Improves the appearance of acne scarring

  • Minimally invasive procedure performed in-office manageable recovery time

  • Safe for all skin types, light to dark

Hitting reset on your skin can be as simple as a 30-minute microneedling treatment. SkinPen creates micro-channels (microscopic holes) at a rate of 1600 per second. These wounds stimulate your skin, kicking its healing process into high gear. Best of all, SkinPen doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are natural and safe for all skin tones and types. In a clinical study, 90% of patients said they would recommend SkinPen.

SkinPen Follows a Three-Step Process

  1. Inflammation: SkinPen’s microneedles pierce the skin, triggering your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.

  2. Proliferation: The micro-wounds created by SkinPen are rebuilt with new granulation cells that include collagen proteins. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

  3. Remodeling: Remodeling The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels which are comprised of rich collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins improve skin youthfulness.

The Treatment

SkinPen is wonderful because there is no pain and very little downtime. You may have a little redness for a few hours, but within 24 hours you are back to wearing makeup and can resume your normal activities. 30 minutes prior to your treatment, a lidocaine-based topical anesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area. During this time, you may enjoy your favorite Netflix or Amazon show, listen to an audiobook or music, or just relax. Once the anesthetic has taken affect, treatment will begin. Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.

SkinPen with PRP (platelet rich plasma)

Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses the growth factors present in your own blood to rejuvenate your skin. This is why the procedure is also referred to as "vampire facial." During the procedure, a small quantity of your blood is drawn. The platelets and plasma are separated from the red and white blood cells through a process called centrifugation. The platelet-rich plasma concentrate is applied on your skin before the SkinPen microneedling treatment. The microscopic punctures created during the procedure allow your skin to absorb the platelet concentrate completely. The growth factors present in the PRP concentrate stimulate your skin cells to synthesize collagen and elastin fibers, which are responsible for keeping your skin young and healthy. The best part about PRP therapy is that your own PRP concentrate is used to treat your skin problems. So, there is absolutely no risk of adverse reactions or any undesirable effects for that matter. 

SkinPen with Botox: A Powerful Combination

Unlike a traditional Botox injection, this procedure focuses on the surface of the skin rather than going deeper to reach the muscles. Aside from fixing the lines and crinkles, Botox diminishes the appearance of pores, controls sebum production, and makes you sweat less. This helps your skin look smooth, clear, and poreless. It's truly the best of both worlds.
