Would you like the skin on your face to appear smoother, brighter and more youthful? Unfortunately, our faces tend to be the very first area of our body to undergo changes related to our advancing age. This is largely due to its constant exposure to free radicals caused by pollution, a bad diet and UV damage from the sun. Fortunately, there are treatments that can reverse the effects of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines, scarring, and wrinkles. One of the most popular is known as micro-needling, which we are pleased to offer using the revolutionary SkinPen.
SkinPen is the first micro-needling device that has been cleared for approval by the FDA. SkinPen works by creating countless controlled micro-injuries in the skin in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing process by minimizing damage at a cellular level. Your body will recognize that damage has occurred to the skin and this prompts the production of collagen to repair it. Collagen is one of the key building blocks of healthy skin, being the protein responsible for skin elasticity. When collagen production is boosted, it helps to keep skin smooth and supple, as well as diminishing the appearance of marks and scars. This includes acne scarring, pigmentation damage and more.
There are a variety of advantages to choosing SkinPen in order to enhance the appearance of your skin.
As we know, SkinPen works by creating hundreds of tiny wounds into the skin. A topical anesthetic is provided before undergoing treatment so that you aren’t in any pain. This enables patients to achieve great results without the need for invasive surgery.
There are countless topical products that can enhance the health and cosmetic appearance of our skin. Microneedling enables these products to be absorbed more quickly and easily, as well as ensuring even coverage across the entire face, leading to a more consistent result.
SkinPen has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is the world’s first FDA-cleared micro-needling device.
SkinPen has been proven to be an effective treatment for patients of all ages and all skin types.
Patients love SkinPen because there is absolutely minimal downtime associated with the procedure. Your skin may feel a little tender for up to 48 hours after, with many people likening the feeling to mild sunburn. Fortunately, you will be able to go back to your usual activities immediately after your appointment. There are no concerns about photosensitivity and the top layer of the skin remains intact, meaning that you can spend time outdoors. However, we would still recommend SPF is worn irrespective of your SkinPenÒ treatment as this is the best way to protect your skin against the harmful effects of the sun.
