As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Microneedling using SkinPen, the first FDA approved microneedling device, comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
SkinPen microneedling has been safely used in a wide variety of patient-types including patients of all skin-types. Treatment time is around 30 minutes to an hour and spaced 6 weeks apart. 3-4 treatments are required for best results with up to 6 treatments for more severe scarring and stretch marks. 1-2 treatments per year are recommended for anti-aging.
