The Aesthetic Everything® 2019 Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine Awards recognized SkinPen® with two prestigious awards: “Top Rated Treatment for Acne Scars” and “Top Skin
Care Device”. This device is used for microneedling, a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the creation of controlled micro-injuries on the skin surface. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, can help to reduce the appearance of aging signs, minimize acne scars, and rejuvenate aging skin.
When the SkinPen® microneedling device is used, it creates small wounds on the skin that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This process triggers the release of cytokines and growth factors that promote the remodeling of collagen and elastin fibers, which are crucial for healthy and youthful-looking skin.
This procedure can effectively reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. It can also improve the appearance of acne scarring. The SkinPen® microneedling device is safe for all skin types and can be used on various body parts, including the face, neck, and décolletage. This minimally invasive procedure can be performed in-office with a manageable recovery time.
What can I expect during treatment?
Before the SkinPen® treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the target area to minimize discomfort. In most cases, patients report experiencing only a slight vibration sensation from the device during the procedure.
Is there downtime after treatment?
Following microneedling, most patients experience mild to moderate swelling and redness, similar to that of a mild sunburn, for a period of two to four days. However, in some cases, the skin may return to its normal state within 24 hours.
When will I see results from my treatment?
As your skin undergoes its natural healing process, it continues to repair itself over several weeks. However, it’s important to note that damage that has accumulated over a prolonged period of time will not vanish overnight. It may take up to six months following your final session to see the ultimate outcome. It’s crucial to keep in mind that every individual’s experience will be unique, and results may vary.
