Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses short, fine needles to penetrate the skin, causing ‘micro-injuries’. The purpose is to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, that activates collagen and elastin production. Microneedling can be used to treat acne and other various scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and large pores.
SkinPen is the only FDA cleared microneedling device that can help significantly improve acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin texture.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
SkinPen is an excellent option for anti-aging treatments and scar reduction. Because of its abilities to increase collagen production, SkinPen is most effective for:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimize pore size
- Healthy and glowing complexion
- Tone, tighten, and strengthen the skin
IS THERE DOWNTIME AFTER A SKINPEN TREATMENT?
Patients should expect mild to moderate edema and erythema, similar to a mild sunburn. There may be some mild bruising in some patients as well. This will begin to minimze after 3 – 7 days, post treatment
CAN PRP BE PAIRED WITH A SKINPEN TREATMENT?
Adding PRP to a SkinPen treatment is an excellent method for maximizing the skin’s wound healing process. Your skin will experience an ultimate rejuvenating treatment, as the PRP supplies the skin with proteins and other growth factors that speed up the recovery process
