SkinPen MicroNeedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, is a customizable treatment that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. This creates smoother, brighter more youthful skin.
The SkinPen is equipped with a sterile, disposable tip, with 12 tiny oscillation needles that can be adjusted to your skin type and condition. The treatment tip is gently glided over the surface of your skin, creating micro-channels in the skin that trigger a healing response resulting in the production of new collagen and increased circulation. An added benefit of this treatment is the enhanced absorption of your anti-aging skin care products for greater efficacy.
The SkinPen’s ability to deliver a customized treatment produces results you can see after just one treatment. It is ideal for treating a variety of skin concerns:
- Fine lines and moderate wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Coarse, uneven skin texture
- Sun damaged, or hyper pigmented skin
FAQ’s SkinPen Collagen Induction Therapy
How many treatments are needed?
That will depend on you, your expectations and the condition of your skin. Generally we recommend a series of four treatments, one month apart. However, even one treatment will make a difference in your skins appearance.
Is Collagen Induction Therapy painful?
There is some discomfort involved, and it can sting a bit. We use a potent topical numbing agent to reduce sensitivity, so for the majority of patients it is entirely tolerable.
What will I look like after?
You will have some redness and mild swelling after your treatment that could last for 1-2 days.You are able to apply make up soon after the treatment and most patients feel like they are able to cover any evidence of treatment.
