What is SkinPen?
SkinPen stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin. SkinPen accelerates this repair process by creating microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. New collagen and elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.
What Areas of the Body Can be Treated?
SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
SkinPen is remarkably effective for:
- Sun Damage
- Uneven Skin Tone
- Lax Skin
- Large Pores
- Thin Skin
- Acne Scarring
How is the Procedure Done?
A topic numbing cream is first applied for 20-30 minutes. Then, a thin layer of serum is applied to the skin, and the appropriate treatment is selected for a particular type of skin. Then the pen is glided across the repair areas in a gentle motion. The actual procedure typically takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the severity of skin damage.
What is the Downtime?
Immediately following the treatment, you will notice a healthy pink glow. Products to aid your skin’s natural healing process will be recommended. Total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the repair process required. On average, patients are pink for two to four days and may experience some shedding of the skin in areas. It is recommended that no make-up, creams, sunscreen, etc. be applied to the skin until the day after your treatment.
When Will I See Results?
Most people notice healthier-looking skin immediately, and the natural repair process of the skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time, and it will continue to improve for up to six months after your final treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The course of treatment will be determined based upon your individual treatment goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of three treatments spaced about four weeks apart. For patients with more severe skin issues, additional session may be necessary.
