Reduce Fine & Deep Wrinkles For A More Youthful Glow
What is SkinPen?
SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up. It is also well known to reduce fine and deep wrinkles, increase collagen production, and provide a more youthful glow to the skin. SkinPen is minimally invasive, stimulates your skin’s own ability to repair itself, and has little to no downtime associated with treatments.
How Does SkinPen and Microneedling work?
SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours. Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
Does SkinPen and Microneedling Hurt?
Though SkinPen treatments could be tolerable without medication, we aim to provide a comfortable experience for our patients. We provide each patient with numbing cream prior to each treatment. This cream has been tested and formulated to ensure that your treatment is virtually painless. Please plan on arriving approximately 30 minutes early to allow enough time for the cream to be applied.
Is SkinPen and Microneedling Safe?
SkinPen and Microneedling are very safe procedures when done correctly. SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures. No other manufacturer can make that claim, which is part of the reason SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the only FDA-cleared microneedling device. Botanica Wellness Sanctuary always strives to meet the highest standards of health and safety, which is why we chose SkinPen as our microneedling device.
Who Should Not Receive SkinPen or Microneedling Treatments?
There are very few patients who are not good candidates for SkinPen or Microneedling Treatments. Unlike some alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically proven to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark. Absolute contraindications include; skin cancer; scleroderma, collagen vascular disease or cardiac abnormalities; blood clotting problems; active bacterial or fungal infection; immunosuppression. We recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our expert providers to determine if SkinPen is right for you.
