SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.

It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

SkinPen is FDA approved to improved acne scarring. In addition, we are seeing results for anti-aging, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening, minimizing scars. Microneedling helps with the overall appearance of your skin.

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, 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: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Here’s what you can expect from a SkinPen treatment:

A plan for optimal results:  We recommend a series of 3 treatments at the very least. Each treatment is performed at a minimum of 4 weeks apart.

A comfortable procedure:  We will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area and let it sit for 30 minutes.

A short procedure time:  The treatment will likely take about 60-75 minutes including numbing time.

A mild sensation:  Most clients report feeling only the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.

Minimal post-procedure effects:  The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. This can last from 3 hours to 24 hours and for some a little longer. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over time without any further complications.

Soothing aftercare:  We will provide Skinfuse® LIFT, a clean, non-cytotoxic hydrogel used to prevent the skin from drying out post-treatment. This is the only product that can be used within 24 hours post-procedure. Lotion, soap, makeup etc… should be avoided.

To avoid post-procedure: Working out within 24 hours. Facials, wrinkles relaxers, dermal fillers, prescribed skincare for 2 weeks.

An effective post-procedure protocol:  We recommend “On The Mend” post procedure healing lotion by ClarityRx.
