SkinPen / Microneedling

What is SkinPen?

An Nd: YAG laser penetrates the skin into the superficial blood vessel.  The heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the spider vein, causing it to collapse and seal.  Over the next 4-6 weeks, the spider vein will disappear and all the blood will be removed by the body’s scavenging cells.  These laser treatments allow the delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel without injuring any nearby tissue.  Depending on the size and number of veins, an average of 2-6 treatments will be needed.

How Microneedling Works

SkinPen creates controlled, micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage.  The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue and stimulation of collagen production, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

Why use SkinPen?

SkinPen is clinically shown to reduce the appearance of acne scars.  It improves the texture of the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates collagen production.  It is a fabulous anti-aging treatment. In fact, 90% of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the treatment to friends and family.  It is also minimally invasive with little downtime.  Some clients are even comfortable going to work the next day. As the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen sets the industry standard for safety.

Will it work for me?

Unlike most alternative treatments, SkinPen has been clinically proven to be effective for both women and men with skin types ranging from light to very dark.  Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh chemical peels.  With treatments properly spaced, the procedures can be safely administered year-round.
