Microneedling, or “collagen induction therapy,” is one of the most effective ways to enhance, smooth, and firm the facial skin. The body responds to the micro-injuries produced by the SkinPen device to heal, regenerate, and restore from within. The end result? Firmer, smoother, glowing skin.
SkinPen is a fractional microneedling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It’s effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars. Fractional micro-needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) uses needles to pierce the skin in a controlled and precise pattern. Compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, SkinPen is safe on any skin type, has a short treatment time and minimal discomfort with virtually no downtime.
SkinPen is an award-winning device. The treatment can make acne scars less visible, rejuvenating and firming aging skin. It is safe for all skin colors and can significantly enhance skin quality on the face, neck, and decolletage. This treatment could be the ideal way to rejuvenate your skin if you have any of the following issues you would like to improve:
SkinPen microneedling can be performed on your face, neck, along the jawline, and to firm crepey skin on the decolletage. The results appear over time and include:
The SkinPen is an automated microneedling device, with a disposable tip cartridge, that uses 11 micro-needles to vertically stamp the skin at high speed. The stamping action of the SkinPen’s vertical tip creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating new collagen production. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes.
Before your appointment, we urge you to stop taking any blood-thinning medications or supplements. The types of medications to avoid include Aleve, aspirin, ibuprofen, ginkgo, vitamin E, and prescribed blood thinners. Speak to your prescribing doctor if you take blood-thinning medications to ensure you can safely stop for one week before your treatment.
Prior to the treatment, your skin is cleansed and a strong topical numbing cream is applied for 25-30 minutes. Your skin is then cleansed again and the SkinPen is applied to the treatment areas. The device uses an automated stamp method very much like microscopically aerating your skin. It allows deeper absorption of topicals that are applied to your skin and stimulates your body’s own repair mechanisms that creates more collagen.
After your treatment is complete, a serum will be applied to soothe your skin, and you are free to return to your usual activities. Your skin may appear slightly reddened, with pinpoint bleeding, but little else. For best results, we advise four to six microneedling sessions about one month apart.
