Microneedling with SkinPen®

Skin Pen is the first and only Class II microneedling medical device on the market that has been studied, cleared and approved by the FDA for treatment of adult facial acne scars. It is great to know Skin Pen has this level of proven effectiveness. However, Skin Pen works on more than just acne scars. Patients see significant improvement in overall skin tone and skin texture with the reduction of fine lines and discoloration as well. It even has shown some benefits in reducing stretch marks.

How Does SkinPen® Work?

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), or microneedling, is the procedure by which the body’s natural response to healing is used to increase the amount of extracellular matrix such as collagen or elastin in the skin. The micro-channels created by the SkinPen allow for leakage of blood, serum, and lymph in a controlled and temporary manner. These “injuries” are enough to initiate the wound healing cascade which is composed of three basic phases.

INFLAMMATION: Your immune system causes increased blood flow to your skin to make it inflamed. It removes debris and disinfects the tiny wounds.

PROLIFERATION: Your skin begins rebuilding itself with granulation cells. New blood vessels develop to nourish your skin in the area.

REMODELING: Dermal tissues like collagen and blood vessels rebuild your tissues stronger than before.


What are the Benefits of SkinPen

SkinPen offers a wide range of benefits to your skin’s appearance and texture. It helps reduce many common skin imperfections that make your skin look less healthy and smooth. Not long after a SkinPen treatment, you’ll notice fewer:

  • Large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Other small scars
  • Age or sun spots
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks

Overall, your skin feels smoother and has a more even tone. If you continue to take care of it and protect it from the sun, you can enjoy the results of your SkinPen treatment for months at a time. Generally, the team recommends getting three treatments spaced out a month apart for the best effects.
