What is SkinPen?
SkinPen is the very first FDA approved collagen induction therapy. It is the premier microneedling device designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. It begins with cleaning and numbing of the skin. A collagen-stimulating product, Vitamin C serum, and/or skin lightener is also used. A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allows for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
What are the benefits of SkinPen?
SkinPen is a quick, minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment which is very safe and effective on ALL skin types and tones. It improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks. This treatment is not only effective for your face, but neck, hands, arms, back, and legs as well.
How many treatments will I need?
At your consultation, the Aesthetician will assess your skin to determine how many treatments will be needed and what treatments would be the most effective to help achieve your goals. SkinPen requires at least 3 treatments to see results. Scar reduction requires between 3 and 6 treatments. Treatments are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. The number of treatments needed depends on each individual case. Micro-needling can be used on all parts of the body (neck, hands, arms, legs, etc). Usually results do begin to appear after the first treatment.
Are SkinPen treatments painful?
You may feel some discomfort, which will be minimized as much as possible with our topical anesthetic (numbing cream).
