MICRONEEDLING - SKIN PEN

Microneedling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. It's also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI). Microneedling is typically performed in a series of four to six sessions, spaced about a month apart.

At Health4life, we have choisen to use the first FDA approved device in the world, SkinPen, to provide our patients with the most accurate needle depth insertion

WHAT IS THE 'SKIN PEN'?

SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is clinically proven to improve the appearance of facial acne scars for people aged 22 and above in all skin types1. Can any other microneedling device make a similar claim? In a word, no.

Here’s another claim no one else can make: That their device is the first ever cleared by the FDA. Because that’s SkinPen.

SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. 

Procedures take about 30 minutes, depending on the area treated and the desired results. Due to their non-invasive nature, microneedling sessions usually require little downtime for patients.

The SkinPen makes tiny columns of trauma in the dermis and the body is forced to make new collagen to fill them in and heal these areas. This new collagen makes skin look and feel slicker, tighter, and more youthful. The sun breaks down collagen and our skin naturally makes less collagen as we age. Any interventions that encourages increased collagen synthesis can make our skin look and act younger!

HOW IT WORKS

SkinPen® microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cell damage. More specifically, SkinPen starts the three-phase wound-repair process:

  • Phase 1: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.

  • Phase 2: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells. Plus a new network of blood vessels develops.

  • Phase 3: Remodeling. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound.

The SkinPen makes tiny columns of trauma in the dermis and the body is forced to make new collagen to fill them in and heal these areas. This new collagen makes skin look and feel slicker, tighter, and more youthful. The sun breaks down collagen and our skin naturally makes less collagen as we age. Any interventions that encourages increased collagen synthesis can make our skin look and act younger!

When we add PRP to the process, it creates an even more amazing results. This is also referred to as a 'VAMPIRE FACIAL'. We draw your blood and then spin it in a centrifuge to extract the platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your blood. We then brush this directly onto your skin. The PRP contains protein and other nutrients that help stimulate skin cell growth and collagen. We microneedling on top of the PRP pushes the growth factors and other nutrients into deeper layers of the skin.
