SkinPen Microneedling is an excellent treatment when you want great results with virtually no downtime. SkinPen Microneedling uses the body's natural healing system to fill tiny holes in the skin surface with new collagen. The result is firmer, smoother, younger looking skin. The SkinPen's design is clean and safe for every treatment by adding several safety and sanitation procedures to prevent cross contamination.
Body Beautiful uses Bellus Medical's SkinPen Microneedling, a medical-grade device, to perform micro-needling for skin rejuvenation. A new, sterile tip is used for each treatment. A disposable bio-sheath is placed over the device to ensure a sterile treatment. Micro-injuries are created by the ultra-fine needles that puncture the skin. This causes micro-channels in the skin, stimulating the body's healing response to regenerate collagen,elastin and new cell production.
SkinPen Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, decollete, hands, arms, legs, back, and even on the abdomen. SkinPen Microneedling is an excellent in the treatment to reduce the signs of aging, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Micro-needling with the SkinPen is an affordable and effective skin rejuvenation treatments with virtually no downtime.
FDA cleared for patients 22 years of age and up.
Your SkinPen Microneedling treatment begins with application of a topical anesthetic to help ensure your comfort. Your treatment area is then cleansed with a gentle cleanser. A new, sterile bio-sheath is applied over the pen and a sterile tip is attached to the SkinPen for each treatment. A thin layer of Skinfuse Lift HG Hydro gel is applied to help the SkinPen glide across the skin and to protect the skin from friction and abrasion.
The tip of the SkinPen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction across the treatment area. Often, multiple passes are performed to deliver the most effective treatment.
After a SkinPen micro-needling treatment, you will have some reddening of the skin. Redness typically fades over the next few hours. You will notice visible improvements over the course of several weeks. These include:
The feeling associated with SkinPen Microneedling is similar to gentle sandpaper being moved across the skin. While everyone is different, and some areas treated can be more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment more comfortable. This also means minimal discomfort and minimal downtime, with some patients healing completely in 24 hours, and redness on average lasting no more than 2-4 days.
Patients notice an immediate "glow" to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommend to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
