SkinPen: Stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself

The cutting-edge technology of the SkinPen, a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool, uses micro needles to stimulate your body’s natural ability to produce new collagen. Collagen is a component of the connective tissue within your skin that helps keep skin firm, supple, and rejuvenated. With age, collagen production slows; your skin thins and becomes easier to damage, sag, and wrinkle. By having a SkinPen treatment, this simple procedure generates fresh, healthy collagen from the skin’s dermal layer and helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and facial scaring. We all know aging is unavoidable; but maintaining healthy, youthful skin is not.

Through consultation with a licensed esthetician, the specificity of your SkinPen treatments will be determined based your beauty goals and unique skin type. A topical serum will be applied to your skin, with the option to also include a numbing agent, based on your individual preferences. Once the product has been applied to your skin, the appropriate micro-channeling treatment depth is selected by the esthetician to achieve your desired outcomes. With a gentle hand motion, the SkinPen glides across the targeted treatment areas, stimulating new collagen. The repair process of your skin is accelerated by the SkinPen through the creation of microscopic channels, which also allows products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin resulting in better outcomes. This can reverse years and enhance the overall appearance of your face. Patients of all skin types are invited to experience the benefits of cell regeneration.

The unique design of the SkinPen allows for individualized settings, making the treatment comfortable with minimal downtime. Immediately following treatment, patients experience a healthy, pink glow to the treated skin area that lasts for a short time. Many people receiving the SkinPen treatment return to their usual activities the same day or following day.

The number of treatments required to achieve your natural beauty goals will be determined by your skincare professional based upon your individual desired outcomes, and the overall health of your skin. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3 treatments in approximately 4 weeks intervals. In the meantime, your skincare professional will recommend product protocols to aide with your skin’s natural healing process.

SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, decolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes SkinPen helpful when addressing acne scars on the back and stretch marks on the body.
