SkinPen™ is a skincare treatment that is specifically designed to stimulate your skin’s ability to regenerate new skin cells and repair itself. SkinPen™ works to encourage natural production of collagen and elastin, which offers a bright, rejuvenated look to your skin. You will notice your skin looks healthier and younger than ever.
SkinPen™ can be used on any part of the body where repair is needed, but it is very appealing to individuals with acne scarring or blemishes on their face. The SkinPen™ procedure generally lasts about 15-30 minutes per treatment and has individualized settings to offer the patient a comfortable procedure. Your specific condition and our team’s treatment recommendation will determine your individual treatment time.
Patients who receive SkinPen™ treatments notice a healthy pink glow immediately following the procedure. You may be advised to utilize skincare products to help aid the healing process and ensure the treated skin heals properly. The healing period following a SkinPen™ procedure varies by patient and depends on the kind of treatment was received. Most patients notice their skin has healed in two to four days.
The number of SkinPen™ sessions you need to achieve your aesthetic goal will be determined during your initial consultation. Your specific course of treatment will depend on the extent of skin damage and the nature of the results you wish to receive. Most patients undergo a series of three treatments that are spaced about four weeks apart. Additional treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of your current skin condition.
SkinPen™ is extremely safe and effective. This treatment appeals to a wide variety of patients because minimal downtime is necessary following each session and it can be used on all skin types. If you are looking for an effective treatment to repair skin damage due to scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, large pores, or even sun damage, the SkinPen™ treatment system may be right for you.
