The SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is the first FDA cleared, non-surgical, cosmetic micro needling device used to improve and rejuvenate skin appearance through micro skin punctures. The Microneeding process works by stimulating the skin’s own self-repair system for new collagen production. The SkinPen® can improve skin texture irregularities that can occur with the aging process, as well as reduce the appearance of acne scars, lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This technique can be used on all skin colors and skin types. The SkinPen® procedure is performed using just topical anesthetic and typically takes approximately 40 minutes to complete.
This quick, safe, minimally invasive procedure is ideal for those looking rejuvenate their skin, increase their natural collagen and elastin, decrease signs of agin, and improve overall texture and smoothness to the skin of the face, as well as the stomach, thighs, neck, and buttocks. Most patients will need a series of 3 procedures of the SkinPen® treatments, 4 weeks apart, to achieve their goals.
