SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.
Microneedling is the use of tiny needle punctures to stimulate collagen production and help treat scarring, wrinkles, and acne.
How does the treatment work: First the skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic, then the microneedling is performed. This minimally invasive solution involves insertion of very short, thin needles into the surface of the skin. In response to the controlled wound caused, the skin makes new tissue that is more even in both texture and tone.
Who is a good candidate: Microneedling can be used on a wide range of skin types and tones. Specifically for people that have acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, reduced skin elasticity and uneven skin tone.
Recovery:The most common side effect is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure. You may also see redness for a few days
Appointment Time: 60 Minutes
Cost: $300 (Includes the face and neck)
Recommended to do this treatment in a series of 3-6 treatments with follow up 1-2 times a year depending on skin concerns. A minimum of 4 weeks apart.
