SKIN PEN MICRONEEDLING
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a procedure using a device that creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage.
HOW SKIN PEN MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS WORK
Each body is unique and has a natural healing system that allows repair of injury by stimulating production of both collagen and elastin. With the micro-needling system, Skin Pen initiates this response by creating hundreds of transient micro channels into the skin, called fractionated injuries. Skin Pen Microneedling helps to promote healing and regeneration mechanically, and without the use of heat energy or any cutting of the skin.
Three to six treatments are usually recommended to achieve the best results, however you may see positive changes in your first couple of sessions. Each treatment is generally performed 4 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the area and skin type that is being treated. Downtime is minimal, making the Skin Pen a convenient alternative to traditional facial peels and laser treatments that may take several days to recover.
These micro-injuries result in effective remodeling of the tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. This tissue remodeling equals more collagen and elastin which equals beautiful skin!
