Skin Rejuvenation With SkinPen

When it comes to science, versatility, and recovery time, the SkinPen advantage is clear. SkinPen’s state-of-the-art technology is designed to rejuvenate a variety of skin types with little downtime.

How do you know if microneedling is right for you? This treatment is a good solution if you’re interested in:

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • A safe solution with little recovery time
  • A minimally-invasive procedure
  • Ongoing maintenance of healthy skin

Some patients may prefer skin rejuvenation treatments with AquaGold®, a microneedling alternative that injects a customized skincare solution directly into the skin. Others may benefit from Plasma Pen treatments, which use energized plasma gas to create precise microinjuries in the skin. Or ask about Dermalinfusion, a noninvasive treatment that can treat a range of skin conditions from head to toe.

What to Expect

What can you expect from a microneedling procedure?

  • A comfortable procedure. Based on your specific needs, your provider may apply a topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  • A short procedure time. Procedure time may range from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • A mild sensation. Most patients report feeling just the slight vibration of SkinPen® during the procedure.
  • Mild post-procedure effects. The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn.
  • Soothing aftercare. Your clinician will apply Skinfuse® RESCUE Calming Complex immediately post-procedure. RESCUE was formulated by Bellus Medical as part of the Skinfuse® post-procedure protocol specifically for post-microneedling to calm the skin.
  • A plan for optimal results. Your clinician will recommend a course of procedures (typically 3 to 6) appropriate for your skin’s needs and request you return within 4 to 6 weeks for your next procedure to ensure optimal results.
  • A post-procedure skin care regimen to optimize your results. Your clinician will provide you with a concise, easy-to-use skincare regimen formulated specifically to your needs.
  • Beautiful, lasting results.

Results With Little Downtime

You can return to normal activities and conceal most of the mild side effects with makeup, if desired, after just 1 day. In a few days, you should see the beautiful results from your SkinPen procedure.
