The SkinPen is the next advancement in skin regeneration. The treatment stimulates your skin’s natural ability to repair the effects of ageing and damaged skin.
It is a microneedling procedure for the treatment of ageing, wrinkles and scarring and uses Collagen Induction Therapy for beautiful looking skin.
SkinPen is a medical class mechanical micro-needling device, which is FDA approved and globally ISO and BSI accredited, for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
SkinPen organically stimulates the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. As we age the architecture of our skin deteriorates. This deterioration can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. SkinPen comfortably creates thousands of controlled micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This process results in skin remodelling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The result is more youthful, smoother and tighter looking skin.
The Process – What To Expect
The process is a relatively comfortable, short procedure, taking approximately 30 minutes. You may experience mild post procedure effects, similar to mild to moderate sunburn. There is little to no downtime with a quick 48 hour recovery time. This procedure is suitable for all skin types, light to dark and can be carried out any time of the year giving you beautiful lasting results. For optimal results you would typically need 3-6 procedures.
The Dermapen Microneedling Pen provides an unparalleled response through the segmented delivery of microneedles, creating micro injuries to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the inner layer of skin). As a result, the micro injuries encourage the body’s innate ability to repair itself.
