The SkinPen is the first ever FDA-cleared microneedling resurfacing treatment that creates millions of micro-channels in the skin to help promote natural collagen production and a new network of blood vessels that are composed of rich collagen and elastin proteins. The collagen and elastin proteins improve skin texture and tone for younger looking skin. The SkinPen treatment does not require heat so it is safe for all skin types and skin tones.
If you are dealing with facial acne scars then the SkinPen can improve the look of your skin leaving a healthier and smoother glow from within. The SkinPen also improves fine lines and wrinkles, crepey skin, mild laxity, melasma, rosacea, scarring, stretchmarks, and irregular skin tone.
The treatment is quick, simple and comfortable taking as little as 30 minutes from start to finish. There is very little to no downtime following the treatment. You may be red and inflamed which is totally normal and should subside in 24-48 hours.
The SkinPen treatment can also be combined with your own platelet rich plasma (PRP) by utilizing the bodies healing process from the growth factors and cytokines present in our blood to supercharge the microneedling benefits.
Your skin can be renewed and rejuvenated in as few as three treatments spaced one month apart. Our providers at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Specialists will customize a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. Most people see improvement within the first month with continued effects six months after a SkinPen treatment.
