Success, effectiveness, and popularity fueled the refinement of injectables for restoring and maintaining the magic of youth. Botox went from leading-edge to mainstream. Juvéderm joined the anti-aging fight by making laugh lines, wrinkles, and folds disappear. The former serves as a neutralizer of wrinkling nerves, while the latter is part of the array of dermal fillers that plump the foundation under the skin’s surface.

Then came the breakthrough of microneedling, an application process that most consider far more nuanced and articulate than a series of simple injections. Microneedle treatments stimulate the skin’s ability to produce its own collagen. It’s minimally invasive and requires no down time. As a means for applying beneficial compounds to the skin, microneedling was a true breakthrough.

Better than Breakthrough

Yet, like many breakthroughs, microneedling offered room for further improvement, and here is where the magic of SkinPen microneedling appeared. Today, SkinPen is the only FDA-cleared, medical-grade microneedling device for treating sun damage, age spots, stretch marks, brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.

With SkinPen microneedling, hair-thin hollow channels top a vial containing an anti-aging treatment compound. They make tiny perforations that deliver the treatment at depths and dermal layers where it can do the most good. People who’ve experienced both say that SkinPen microneedling is painless, with even less of an “ouch factor” than microneedling rollers.

People report a luminous skin surface – an immediate dewiness – from the SkinPen microneedling treatment. And the results continue to grow more evident as the skin’s own processes join in, producing collagen more avidly to shrink pores and smooth wrinkles. The skin is better hydrated and reflects a smoother texture.

Treating the Areas You Need

The SkinPen microneedling vial/applicator is unique in the field. Used just once, each patient is assured of a sterile and safe treatment. It is particularly well suited for treating whole areas, including the face, neck, and chest. Women who’ve noticed wrinkles, dark spots, or sun damage on the décolletage find that SkinPen microneedling is effective where other treatments found it hard to achieve reach and coverage. Because the vial, with its hair-thin channels, does not create micro-tears or cause any bleeding, people leave the office with their skin refreshed, and the results appear more and more as the skin’s own collagen joins in the treatment.

This quick pick-me-up, followed by results that stem from the body’s own processes, offers patients an experience they can feel good about on several levels. As in any careful, professional procedure, it starts with a considerate conversation about your own goals. We would welcome the chance to begin the process having just such a conversation with you.
