SkinPen® is a microneedling device designed to encourage natural process of skin rejuvenation. It encourages skin to rejuvenate and by doing so it reduces wrinkles, stretch marks and scars, achieving tighter and healthy looking skin. Besides its uses for wrinkles and scars, it is useful for treating dark circles under eyes or tear through. SkinPen® requires little to no recovery time so it is recommended for individuals from all walks of life, regardless of their age and skin condition. It works by creating a series of microscopic channels into the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.
SkinPen® is an excellent treatment for under eye wrinkles and dark circles. Since the skin around eyes is particularly sensitive, the needles used in this area need to be short. It is of crucial importance to have this done by an experienced provider. To deliver great results for under eye circles, it is crucial to use growth factors with SkinPen®. The area around eyes may take a longer time to heal than other areas on your face and body.
The results depend on the age of the patient, their skin, number of treatments and of course the aftercare. Your provider should evaluate your skin before the procedure and offer you treatment and aftercare that suits your individual case in order to obtain desired results. Some people can see their results right away after the first procedure. Still, for the majority of patients, it usually takes few treatments to achieve desired results.
For best results, it is important to stick to the aftercare regimen prescribed by the provider. Besides aftercare products, it is important to avoid using products that induce inflammation and may worsen your healing process, reversing the effect of the SkinPen®. The most important daily skin regimen should always consist of sunscreen and hydrating lotion.
