SkinPen stimulates your skin's natural ability to repair itself, creating new collagen and elastin that diminishes or eliinates the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as stretch marks, acne scars and more!
SkinPen is minimally invasive, using a "microneedling" technique to create tiny channels in the outer layers of your skin that create the opportunity for new skin to rise in it's place with little to no downtime. Your skin will look and feel healthier almost immediately.
The Science Behind the Magic
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as microneedling, is the science on which SkinPen is based. Teh process works in three general phases:
Phase 1- Inflammation: By Piercing the skin, the body sends healing factors to clear the "micro-injuries" and begin the production of fresh, new younger looking skin.
Phase 2 - Proliferation: Healthy skin around the edges of the channels proliferates to "fill the gaps". Your epidermal cells multiply, generating new collagen and elastin.
Phase 3 - Remodeling: once the "wounds" are closed the new dermal layers and elastin and other growth factors tighten, creating a shrink-wrap effect that tightens and tones the appearnace of the new skin layers.
Full recovery is typically 2-4 days, depending on the depth of the channels created, and the recovery is similar to the effects of a mild sunburn. During that time, you may have varying degrees of redness and minimal swelling.
As always, our highly trained staff will consult with you on your treatment options and help determine the best course of action to help you get the results you desire.
