Micro-Needling with skin pen

New collagen and elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars, decrease the appearance of pores and enhance the overall appearance of healthy skin.

Micro-needling, defined as “collagen induction therapy,” is a safe, chemical-free method triggering new collagen production. It is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure using a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization (new/repaired blood vessel formation) and neocollagenesis (new collagen formation), there is improvement in skin texture and firmness. New collagen and elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars, decrease the appearance of pores and enhance the overall appearance of healthy skin. Topical numbing cream and the unique design of Skinpen allows for individualized settings, making the treatment quite comfortable for most patients.
