Skin Pen microneedling is a new and exciting skin rejuvenation treatment that we offer at the Aesthetics Center of SCS. Microneedling is based on the notion that the skin repairs itself naturally when injured. The microneedling device creates micro-injury points that bring about collagen synthesis, and cell renewal.
What is Skin Pen?
Skin Pen micro-needling is a non-invasive, medical-grade skin restoration treatment that uses innovative micro-needling technology. It is a pen-like device that is fitted with tiny needles that penetrate the skin, to promote skin health. Skin Pen micro-needling is safe enough for use on several parts of the body including the face, neck, hands, arms, and legs.
What does it treat?
Since Skin Pen rejuvenates the skin, it is the ideal treatment for skin issues such as stretch marks, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
How does it work?
The micro-needles contained in Skin Pen create tiny puncture wounds in the dermal structures of the skin. This triggers the skin’s natural repair process, causing cell regeneration and new collagen formation. Collagen is a vital protein needed for firm, youthful skin.
Does it hurt?
Most patients tolerate Skin Pen treatments very well.
Are there any side effects?
There will be some redness after treatment, but this usually resolves within a few days.
How many treatments will you need?
A series of 4 treatments done at 4-week intervals is generally recommended.
What results can you expect?
The stimulation provided by Skin Pen pulls nutrients into the skin cells, resulting in smoother, firmer, more radiant skin. It also boosts the tone and health of the skin. Some results will be seen immediately, but improvements will continue over the following weeks, as collagen remodeling takes place.
