SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the only microneedling device approved by the FDA, and we have it! Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment aimed at rejuvenating the skin. It is primarily used to minimize signs of aging like age spots, wrinkles, any scarring, and other forms of hyperpigmentation. The microneedling device has fine needles which create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
Microneedling is ideal for clients who desire improved texture, firmness, reduction in acne scarring, poor size and stretch marks. A series of three treatments, four to six weeks apart is recommended to see optimal results. The downtime associated with microneedling is minimal. There is likely to be some redness due to the small punctures but those go away within 24 to 48 hours.
**Contraindications to microneedling include: keloid prone, cystic acne, facial eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, herpes simplex infections, diabetes, raised moles, lesions or warts at the treatment site.
