SkinPen Precision is the leading microneedling device and it works to remodel the skin by creating temporary microscopic channels in your skin. This simple procedure activates your body’s natural skin-healing power to increase collagen and elastin so your skin returns to a healthier looking and youthful appearance
What is collagen?
Collagen and elastin are the essential protein fibers in the skin that give it support and elasticity. As we age, these fibers break down and can cause wrinkles. Regenerating the collagen and elastin in the skin can help to give you a more youthful appearance overall. Collagen also plays a key role in scaring, such as those resulting from acne. Skin remodeling can have an important role in the improved appearance of this condition.
What should I expect?
Topical anesthesia may be administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment. Following your treatment your skin may appear slightly pink to red, similar to a mild sunburn. You will see some results immediately after treatment, and will continue to improve three to six months after. We may recommend a series of procedures based on your individual goals.
For acne scaring, we recommend what is sometimes called the "vampire facial." This is a combination between microneedling using the SkinPen and PRP. There is a reason celebrities like Kim Kardashian swear by this treatment! The combination of both services stimulates collagen production to improve skin elasticity, texture and tone as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and large pores. If you are looking for dramatic results, this is definitely the treatment for you!
