Are you unhappy with the way your skin looks and are looking for a minimally invasive procedure that will help with fine lines and wrinkles, texture and discoloration? People of all ages can benefit from the results that can be achieved with micro-needling. SkinPen® II is a safe, effective, vertical micro-needling device, which reduces the appearance of skin imperfections and stimulates collagen and elastin remodeling.
Micro-needling is a safe, quick and minimally invasive treatment. The process works by passing a device, containing many tiny micro-needles, over the surface of the skin. These needles create micro-injuries, which trigger the body into producing collagen and elastin; two components of healthy, youthful skin.
People who get micro-needling treatments continue to see results in the weeks and months following treatment. Old skin cells will turn over in favor of new, fresh skin cells. The skin will appear more youthful and radiant.
What is the SkinPen® II?
The SkinPen® II is an advanced micro-needling device that is ideal for rejuvenating tired skin. The treatment is fast, safe and effective. The treatment process produces significant results, such as the minimization of wrinkles, discoloration and acne scars or scars due to trauma. The process is not considered to be uncomfortable, although a topical numbing agent is applied to ensure your comfort during your procedure.
The results of SkinPen® II vary based on age, the condition of the skin, the number of procedures provided, and the extent to which post-procedure care is followed. Additionally, everyone’s body reacts to injury based on several factors (e.g., genetics, diet and lifestyle), yet everyone can still benefit from this service. While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal micro-needling results, noticeable changes may be seen just one week following the procedure and gradually improve as the body’s healing process promotes collagen remodeling. Patients with uneven skin-tone and fine lines will achieve optimal results in a series of three procedures. Other patients may require several procedures.
