THE MICRONEEDLING SKINPEN PROCEDURE

SkinPen is the only globally FDA approved micro-needling device (SkinPen Precision) which is clinically proven with visible results seen after one treatment. SkinPen Precision creates controlled micro injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response which initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue.  Collagen Induction Therapy assists in the rejuvenation of the epidermal integrity resulting in improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. SkinPen Precision can effectively remodel scar tissue whilst maintaining the overall structure of the skin. SkinPen can be used on all areas of the face and body and can treat a number of concerns.

There are three phases involved in the wound-healing process:

Phase I  (Inflammation phase) – The piercing of the skin triggers a response in your immune system which disinfects the wounds, increases blood flow and initiates new tissue formation.

Phase II (Proliferation phase) – A new network of blood vessels develop in addition to wound rebuilding involving new granulation cells.

Phase III (Remodeling phase) – The wound is replaced with new blood vessels and Dermal tissues.
