Micro-needling is a skin rejuvenation procedure. This procedure helps improve your skin’s appearance by stimulating its ability to produce collagen and repair itself. The SkinPen device offers five features that makes this non-invasive procedure the right choice for problem skin.
Natural. SkinPen is a micro-needling tool that uses sharp needles to create tiny holes in your skin. Your body produces collagen and elastin to heal the wound naturally in response to these micro-injuries. SkinPen does not use chemicals, heat or toxins to burn or remove layers of your skin.
Safe and relatively comfortable. There are minimal side effects and downtime after the procedure. You may experience slight swelling and redness in the treated area. This typically lasts for two to four days. SkinPen has a small risk of scarring or infections. To make you comfortable your provider will usually apply a topical anesthetic before the procedure.
Versatile. SkinPen can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars. It can be used on many areas of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. SkinPen needles adjust to different lengths, allowing your provider to customize your procedure based on yours skin’s thickness and your specific needs.
Effective for all skin types. SkinPen can be used on all skin types because it doesn’t affect the epidermis (where the skin pigment resides).
Cost-effective. SkinPen is a cost-effective choice to other skin procedures such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing or Botox.
