What Is SkinPen?
SkinPen refers to a dermaroller device used in microneedling treatments. It creates many tiny micro-injuries in the skin in order to encourage the skin to heal itself. This revolutionary device has several advantages over the competition. Primarily, it is the only FDA-approved dermaroller. This means the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has thoroughly vetted this medical-grade device through rigorous third-party testing for safety and efficacy.
Safety is one of the most incredible benefits offered by SkinPen. This medical device is revolutionary in that it uses disposable needle cartridges. Thus, there is no risk of infection from needles which are not sterile. Combined with the sterile environment in our state-of-the-art facility and the thorough skin cleansing you receive before the treatment, there is no need to take antibiotics before or after the treatment to mitigate the risk of infection.
SkinPen is generally more comfortable than other microneedling devices on the market. The needles used are so fine that you should not feel any real discomfort as they penetrate your skin.
Results are another factor separating SkinPen from alternative microneedling devices. At-home dermarollers do not penetrate the deepest layers of your skin. Rather, these only offer a superficial cosmetic treatment. Results vary from patient to patient, but generally speaking, you will not get the same results at home as you will enjoy when you come in for a professional treatment session.
With your SkinPen microneedling treatment, you may receive skin care products formulated specifically to address various aesthetic concerns. These may include the treatment of:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
SkinPen is universally accepted. Some cosmetic treatments are only recommended for people with fair skin and dark hair. However, this excludes a significant portion of the population. This treatment is safe and effective for various skin types. It can also be beneficial to older clients because of how safely and effectively it promotes cellular regeneration – a phenomenon which slows down drastically with age.
Nobody likes looking in the mirror and seeing acne scars. SkinPen is the only microneedling device that has been FDA-approved to rejuvenate the skin and improve the appearance of acne scars.
