What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen is a medical-grade micro-needling device that produces effects comparable to laser skin resurfacing without the drawbacks or the lengthy healing time. Skin Pen is ideal for treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne and stretch marks, sun damage/pigmentation, and loose skin. At each session, a custom-made serum specific to the needs of your skin is used to ensure the best results.
What Is It?
SkinPen is widely acknowledged as one of the most effective and technologically innovative skin rejuvenation procedures available. It’s a brand of collagen-inducing therapy that can be used to treat a variety of skin flaws. SkinPen is a minimally invasive, fast-acting device that is highly recommended by skin care practitioners. Furthermore, the medication is the first of its kind to receive FDA approval and is appropriate for people above the age of 22.
How Does It Work?
Thousands of small micro-punctures are created on your skin’s surface by the needles, which allows the serums and applied products during the procedure get absorbed by the skin much faster. It works by causing a small and controlled amount of damage to your skin in order to trigger the body’s natural healing process causing the development of collagen and elastin. The result is firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
How Long Is Treatment?
A SkinPen session will last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour and a half. The length of time it takes depends on the extent of the region that’s affected. Most patients find the procedure to be completely painless and we can adjust certain aspects of the treatment to fit your needs. After treatment, your skin may turn a pinkish hue, this will wear off in a few weeks. In the 3-6 weeks after, you may notice some changes to your skin, but everyone heals at a different pace depending on a variety of factors, like how severe the affected area is, or how many sessions you avail of, or how quickly a person heals in general.
