What Is SkinPen?
CE Mark – Medical device Class II a: Medical Purpose: SkinPen® Precision Microneedling System is a medical device intended to treat facial acne scars in adults aged 22 years or older. Aesthetic Purposes: SkinPen® Precision Microneedling System is also intended to help improve the cosmetic appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical scars, enlarged pores and pigmentation conditions (dyschromia).
How Does It Work?
SkinPen, also known as microneedling with a dermaroller, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. The specific mechanism of action for SkinPen can be outlined as follows:
- Microneedling Technique:
- The SkinPen device contains a set of tiny, sterile needles that are adjustable in length.
- During the procedure, the practitioner moves the SkinPen over the skin’s surface, causing controlled micro-injuries.
- The depth of penetration can be customized based on the specific needs and goals of the treatment.
- Stimulation of Collagen and Elastin Production:
- The micro-injuries created by the needles trigger the body’s natural healing response.
- This response includes the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, essential proteins that contribute to the skin’s structure and elasticity.
- Tissue Remodeling:
- As the skin heals, the newly formed collagen and elastin help to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin quality.
- Microneedling induces a process of tissue remodeling, leading to smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
- Enhanced Absorption of Topical Products:
- The micro-channels created by the needles also improve the absorption of topical skincare products applied during or after the procedure.
- This can enhance the effectiveness of serums, creams, or other products used to address specific skin concerns.
- SkinPen is versatile and can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and other areas with skin concerns.
Benefits of SkinPen include its ability to address a range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and overall skin texture. The controlled nature of the treatment and minimal downtime make it suitable for many skin types.
