SkinPen stimulates your skins natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin. SkinPen accelerates your skins 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.
SkinPen can be used on all types of skin and treat a wide range of problems. One of the most common problems SkinPen is used for is the treatment of acne scars. What areas of the body can be treated' SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body including the face, neck, arms, hands legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes SkinPen especially helpful when addressing acne scars and stretch marks.
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 area in a gentle motion.
The unique design of SkinPen allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment comfortable for most patients.
The procedure typically takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area and severity of the damage to the skin.
Immediately following the treatment, you will notice a healthy pink glow. Your skincare professional will recommend products to aid your skin's natural healing process. Total healing time depends on the damage of the skin and the depth of the repair process required. On average, patients are pink for two to four days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
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.
The course of treatment will be determined by your skincare professional 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 sessions may be necessary.
