Smoother, Healthier Skin with SkinPen

All skin types can benefit from this in-office, minimal downtime procedure. SkinPen uses 14 tiny, stainless steel, medical-grade needles to create thousands of micro-channels in the skin. These controlled injuries disrupt the skin barrier, which stimulates wound healing. The result is skin that is smoother, thicker, firmer, and more youthful. 

What Does SkinPen Microneedling Do?

  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Decreases the appearance of large pores
  • Lightens acne scarring
  • Provides a good skin maintenance program 
  • Promotes elastin and collagen
  • Assists in overall skin health

The Proven Safety of SkinPen

SkinPen has gone through 90+ validation studies in order to become FDA approved, and has been clinically proven to be safe and effective. The device is mechanical rather than heat- or chemical-based, which means that it’s great for all skin types and doesn’t require a long recovery.

In fact, most patients only have 1-2 days of social downtime after their treatment. The cartridges used are disposable, so every patient gets their own. This provides an added level of hygiene safety. In addition, the depth and speed control of the micro-needles is extremely precise, adding even more protection. 

Why Patients Love SkinPen

  • Minimal downtime required
  • Great for all skin types
  • More comfortable than traditional microneedling devices
  • Can be done any time of year
  • Treatment time is only about one hour
  • Minimally invasive

What to Expect During a Microneedling Treatment

We do everything we can to make you as comfortable as possible during your SkinPen microneedling treatment. We use a superior topical anesthetic to numb your skin prior to treatment. This takes 15-30 minutes. We make your environment as relaxing as possible, offering your personal choice of music or television.

Once you’re numbed and prepped, your aesthetician will pass the SkinPen handheld device over the area to be treated. The device is approximately the size of a fat magic marker, and gel will be applied to help it glide more easily.

As the SkinPen passes over the treatment area, the micro-needles penetrate the deeper layers of skin, creating 1,600 tiny penetrations per second. The depth and speed control with SkinPen is incredibly precise, which is helpful because different areas of the face have varying skin thickness. The sensation of the SkinPen feels like a small vibration, and the level of discomfort will depend on each patient’s personal pain threshold. Most patients find the treatment to be very tolerable, but if you feel uncomfortable, please let us know. A typical SkinPen appointment takes about one hour.

How the SkinPen Wound Repair Process Works

As the SkinPen device creates tiny channels deep within the skin, the body’s healing response kicks into gear. This healing response includes disinfecting the injuries, increasing blood flow, and stimulating brand-new dermal tissue growth. The injuries are rebuilt with new granulation cells, collagen, elastin, and a new network of blood vessels. The end result is skin that is smoother, firmer, and thicker — therefore, more youthful-looking and helpful in reducing the appearance of acne scars, pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Results from Microneedling

After your SkinPen procedure, your skin will appear flushed anywhere from 1-2 days. Some patients also experience dryness, itching, peeling, tightness, tenderness, or slight burning, but these side effects are uncommon and subside quickly. Once your skin returns to its normal tone, you’ll notice that you have a radiant glow which will continue to look better and better over the course of the following weeks. For the best results, we usually recommend a series of 3-6 SkinPen treatments scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. Be sure to always combine microneedling treatments with a quality home skincare regimen.

SkinPen Microneedling Candidates

SkinPen microneedling is an excellent option for nearly anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin. However, there are some patients who we do not recommend this treatment to. This includes those who:

  • Are pregnant or nursing 
  • Are allergic to stainless steel
  • Have any kind of bleeding disorder
  • Are taking medications that include isotretinoin
  • Have active skin cancer, open sores, or skin irritation in the treatment area

SkinPen Microneedling with Exosomes

Exosomes are nanoparticles that contain various growth factors integral to the body’s healing processes and signals between cells in the body. Superior to PRP, exosomes provide a more reliable and potent combination of sources needed to repair our skin.

An Exosome Facial is an impressive treatment, which uses SkinPen Microneedling to deliver the exosome complex into the skin for a more youthful appearance. The micro-wounds caused by the needles stimulate the body to produce more growth factors for healing while also increasing collagen and elastin production. These controlled wounds allow exosomes to penetrate the deeper skin layers to increase treatment effectiveness and enhance results.

Exosomes boost the body’s natural healing so the skin can rebuild itself in a natural, healthy way from the inside out. The Exosome Regenerative Complex + is the most cutting-edge breakthrough for clinically proven skin rejuvenation and regeneration. This serum harnesses the power of:

  • Over five billion stem cell-derived lyophilized exosomes
  • Potent growth factors
  • Peptides
  • Coenzymes
  • Minerals
  • Amino acids
  • Vitamins
