With summer on the way, everyone wants to look great. But if you’re battling wrinkles and acne scarring and pitting, you know you’ve got your work cut out for you. Fortunately, there’s a way to treat these types of skin problems safely, quickly and effectively. It’s called SkinPen.
SkinPen is a microneedling device that is the market-standard for creating a more youthful facial appearance. In fact, it’s the only device of its kind that is cleared by the FDA for marketing and use in the U.S. Here are some details.
What it is SkinPen?
SkinPen provides minimally invasive treatment through a device that looks a lot like a pen. Therapy is designed to create a youthful facial appearance by targeting fine lines and other wrinkles as well as acne scarring and other facial blemishes.
When administered by a trained provider, SkinPen is very safe and requires little downtime after the procedure. Because there are no drugs involved in the treatment, it’s a perfect tool for ongoing maintenance to keep your new youthful facial appearance looking great year-round.
How does SkinPen work?
The magic of SkinPen works through small, disposable needles that cause micro-injuries to the skin and kick the body’s healing process into gear. This process leads to the remodeling of elastin and collagen when various growth factors are released beneath the treated areas of the skin.
FIRST: Inflammation is caused, then the body’s immune system gets to work to disinfect the damaged areas, remove debris, generate more blood flow and create new skin tissue.
SECOND: Wounded areas are re-constructed with temporary collagen and elastin as well as new granulation cells. During this process, new blood cells develop.
THIRD: This is the remodeling phase. New blood vessels and dermal tissues replace the wound, and a stronger type of collagen appears to tighten the skin.
After the procedure
The best way to assist and preserve your new youthful facial appearance is to use products in the Skinfuse line post-treatment. Ingredients in these formulas give the skin what it needs throughout the remodeling process and help to reduce inflammation during the first few days after the procedure.
The Skinfuse line of products introduce important nutrients into the new skin cells to bring about optimal results. New skin needs the proper nutrients, and when you use these after-treatment formulas, you’ll know you’re getting the exact nutrients in the proper amounts to support the youthful facial appearance SkinPen was designed to produce.
