Microneedling with SkinPen?
SkinPen is a minimally invasive, in-office, skin rejuvenation procedure that improves fine lines and acne scars by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
Available only through skincare professionals, SkinPen is a state-of-the-art tool that works by creating a series of microscopic channels into the skin to assist in the production of new collagen and elastin. Your skin may look and feel healthier with little or no downtime!
SkinPen is extremely versatile and may be used on most parts of the body.
How Microneedling Works
SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.
The SkinPen causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
- Inflammation: Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
- Proliferation: The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Remodeling: The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
