Collagen and elastin are key elements in our skin that help to create a youthful appearance. When these stores begin to deplete as we age, our skin starts to show signs of aging. The SkinPen® works to stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate your complexion.
What is the SkinPen®?
SkinPen is a new state-of-the-art treatment tool that works by creating hundreds of microscopic punctures into the skin to stimulate the natural production of new collagen and elastin. SkinPen treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and skin texture. It is a safe, in-office procedure that is quick and simple, and results in healthier looking and feeling skin with no downtime.
During treatment, most patients feel a slight vibration, though a topical numbing cream can be applied to ensure your comfort. The SkinPen will then be used to create micro skin punctures to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. This collagen generation will then reduce signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
Who is a Good Candidate?
The SkinPen can treat a variety of skin types, with little recovery time. Patients who wish to improve skin appearance on the face, neck, and décolleté can often benefit from the SkinPen. A consultation can help to best determine if you can benefit from this procedure.
Post treatment, the skin will appear slightly pink, and may resemble a mild sunburn. Our skincare specialist will apply Skinfuse® RESCUE Calming Complex after treatment to calm the skin after the SkinPen treatment. There is little to no downtime needed, and makeup can be worn on the second day. A course of 4-6 procedure will be recommended for optimal results.
