Does your skin need to feel refreshed without much downtime? SkinPen is a microtherapy procedure that rejuvenates the skin.
What is SkinPen Microtherapy?
SkinPen is the only FDA-approved microtherapy that utilizes collagen induction therapy (CIT) to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen. This development of new collagen reduces wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars. Microtherapy also creates new channels for topical skincare treatments which allows them to penetrate to a deeper skin level, boosting the effectiveness.
Why the SkinPen?
Wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scarring should not stop you from showing off your skin. SkinPen microtherapy is a new procedure used to stimulate the production of new collagen in the body which can reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation of the skin. SkinPen Microtherapy can enhance the overall appearance of the skin.
How is SkinPen Procedure Performed?
The SkinPen procedure begins by applying local or topical anesthetic to the skin area being treated. A sterile pen with fine needles is used to create thousands of microscopic channels into the dermis of the skin. Micro-needling allows for a controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin. This procedure automatically triggers new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. The body’s response releases cytokines and growth factors that lead to healthy collagen and elastin. The newly formed tissue is replaced with stronger collagen, creating a tightening effect on the skin.
Will SkinPen Work for Me?
SkinPen has been clinically proven to improve skin appearance for both men and women who have skin tones ranging from light to very dark. SkinPen Microtherapy is used for patients who are 22 years or older. Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas recommend as few as three procedures, spaced 30 days apart, to see optimal results. When properly administered and given enough time between treatments, SkinPen can be used for years.
