A new innovation in aesthetic medicine, SkinPen is the first and only Class II microneedling medical device on the market approved by the FDA to treat adult facial acne scars. It is also great in working to improve the overall skin texture and appearance by reducing the fine lines and discoloration. SkinPen is even effective in reducing stretch marks too.
During the procedure, an experienced practitioner creates micro-injuries to the skin with the help of the SkinPen to aid and enhance the production of collagen and elastin. The micro-channels created by the SkinPen allows creams, topical gels, and serums to be absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin, giving more effectiveness. The repairing process from the procedure helps the patients achieve a thicker yet softer appearance of the skin.
Your skin care professional will attach a cartridge containing 24 micro-points to the SkinPen microneedling device. An appropriate serum is applied to your skin, and the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while gliding in one direction until the complete desired area has been covered. Due to to the speed of the reciprocating tip, the treatment is more comfortable than other microneedling machines.
Downtime and Results
Redness will be noticed immediately after the treatment, and on average, patients usually experience redness for 2-4 days after the procedure. The healing time differs for each client, however. An immediate glow will also be noticed after the treatment. Visible changes occur over the course of several weeks and continuously approve up to six months post-treatment.
