SkinPen: A State-of-the-Art Skin Treatment
Sun damage and aging can make a person’s skin look rough and weathered. Many products and procedures claim to be able to heal skin damage, but they’re often unable to live up to their promises. For clinically proven results that are natural-looking and effective, we offer SkinPen treatments.
The SkinPen is a device used to restore clear, smooth, and youthful-looking skin. It can address numerous types of skin damage. Because its penetration depth can be precisely calibrated, it can treat light, moderate, and harsh skin issues. These include age lines, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and acne scars.
This device is safe and effective for all skin types. It can be used on areas like the face, abdomen, hands, and legs.
How It Works
The SkinPen triggers the healing process through precisely created micro-injuries in the skin tissues. No permanent damage is created, and skin function is preserved. With the help of the new collagen and elastin, the skin layers beneath the superficial skin contract, making the superficial skin look tighter and more attractive.
The Treatment ProcessTypically, the SkinPen treatment process requires around 30 to 45 minutes to perform. This varies as a result of factors like the size of the treatment areas and the number of areas treated.
At the start of the process, the target areas are numbed to any pain or discomfort with the help of a topical anesthetic. This numbing takes around 30 minutes.
Following this, a serum is applied to the skin in the numbed regions. This serum allows the SkinPen device to glide across the skin effectively. It also contains antioxidants to make the skin healthier.
The SkinPen device is passed over the skin, creating a number of controlled micro-injuries at various depths. The micro-channels this creates allow the serum to permeate the skin tissues, creating healing at a deeper level.
After the treatment is completed, minor swelling or discoloration may occur, but these issues are only temporary.
Patients usually require three to eight SkinPen treatment sessions to achieve their revitalization goals. Treatments should occur every four to six weeks.
