SkinPen® is a micro-needling rejuvenation treatment to help improve the appearance of your skin. It is a handheld micro-needling tool with tiny sharp needles that make small holes in your facial skin. These are called micro-injuries, and they stimulate your body to produce collagen and elastin to heal the wound naturally. You may feel a slight tingling during your treatment, so a topical numbing cream is applied beforehand to minimize any discomfort and maximize your results.
There are no chemicals, heat, toxins, or injections with the use of SkinPen®. By stimulating collagen production, the tissues are forced to repair themselves. SkinPen® is a non-invasive facial treatment with minimal side effects and downtime. By creating micro-injuries, it boosts your body's natural wound-healing process, all while minimizing cellular damage.
It is the very first micro-needling device approved by the FDA that is clinically proved to safely and effectively treat acne scars. It is effective, and with as few as three (3) treatments about one (1) month apart, you will see and feel the difference in your skin. With SkinPen®, the results are active remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping your overall facial and skin structure intact. If you've been insecure about acne scars or imperfections, you can regain your confidence with the cost affordable SkinPen® treatment.
In addition to improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it also helps to reduce stretch marks and acne scars. SkinPen® has a lot of versatility and is used in many different body parts, including:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is obtained by drawing your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge. The platelets, which are rich in growth factors, can be isolated and applied during your SkinPen® treatment. The growth factors penetrate the small perforations in your skin to not only speed recovery but also to provide extra stimulus to promote healing.
The tiny micro-needles in the SkinPen® device allow for adjustment of different lengths to be customized to your treatment based on the thickness and specific needs of your skin.
