The Science behind great skin

SkinPen microneedling, otherwise known as collagen induction therapy, is a treatment that works deep within the epidermis and dermis to rejuvenate the skin’s natural appearance by regenerating the production of new collagen and elastin while stimulating the production of healthy new cells.

SkinPen needle cartridges host 14 tiny sterile needles that create microscopic punctures to the skin, whereby the body works naturally to repair these wounds. While the body responds to the wound healing, new capillaries are formed to increase the blood flow, and new collagen and elastin begin to improve the overall texture of the treated skin.

SkinPen® microneedling is a safe treatment, with zero risks of cross-contamination. The results are gradual, with some visible results seen within the first several days. The recommendation is to have a minimum for three treatments to maximise full results, depending on the patient’s goal. This might be to reduce the signs of ageing or acne scarring. Procedures are done every 4-6 weeks over a three to four-month period.

  • Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase III: Remodelling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
  • Little Downtime: It is a perfect treatment for patients with a busy schedule
  • Natural Recovery: SkinPen’s mechanical process is versatile and usable year-round
  • Safe for all Skin Types: Clinically proven effective on all skin types, Fitzpatrick 1 – 6
  • Safe and Sound: The First FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market
  • Comfortable: A light numbing cream may be used to minimize discomfort
Unlike most alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically shown to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from skin-types light to very dark . Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh peels. In addition, when you properly space treatments that are overseen by myself, the procedures can be administered year-round.
