What Is Skinpen Microneedling?

SkinPen, by Bellus Medical, is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S Food and Drug Administration. This technique is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for clients aged 22 and older. It works for all skin types, dark to fair skin, and requires little to no downtime.

With as few as three non-invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, we can improve your skin for 6 months after your last treatment.

What Does It Do?

Microneedling is used to treat and improve skin condition such as:
For the FACE

For the BODY

How Does It Work?

This treatment creates micro-injuries to the skin that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing capabilities, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

There are 3 phases to the wound-repair process.

  1. Inflammation
  2. Proliferation
  3. Remodeling

In the first phase, microneedling the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue. In the second phase, the wounds begin to rebuild with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix, increasing collagen and elasticity. A new network of blood vessels develop. Finally in the last phase, the wounds are healed with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

How Long Does It Take?

Treatment length varies by client and also the area being treated, but the average session is 20 to 30 minutes. Including consultation and numbing, sessions may run 60 to 90 minutes.

Is It Painful?

We will apply topical numbing cream before the treatment to minimize pain and maximize comfort. We believe everyone has different pain tolerance but most of our clients report that there is no pain and they feel only the sight vibration during the procedure.

After Treatment

You may experience redness, peeling, swelling, irritation, bruising, itching for 2 hours to 3 days following treatment.

For 24 hours following treatment:
Avoid make up.
Do not use hydroquinone (it is the ingredients often used in skincare to brighten and whiten the skin).
Avoid swimming and vigorous exercise.
Avoid waxing and tanning booths for at least 2 to 3 weeks.
Do not use any other skincare product for 24 hours. Only use the one we provide.
Avoid waxing and tanning booths for at least 2 to 3 weeks.
The use of physical sunblock from the day following the treatment is important.

When Can I Expect To See Results?

Every patient is unique but typically you can expect to see the result in as few as 3 treatments. It is possible to notice improvement in your skin after just 1 treatment.

How Often Does Microneedling Need To Be Performed?

The required number of treatments varies by client, area treated and the goal. It is safe to repeat treatment every 30 days. It is possible to see improvement in your skin with the first treatment but for better results we recommend 3 to 6 treatments.

How Long Do The Results Last?

For scar reduction / stretch marks, once healed the result will be semi-permanent. For the best, long lasting results, maintain a lifestyle and good skincare routine.
