SkinPen precision micro-needling, known as collagen induction therapy (CIT) is an FDA approved, non-surgical procedure for skin rejuvenation. SkinPen is a mechanical micro-needling device for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, UV damage, hyperpigmentation, loss of skin thickness and also acne scaring.
As the skin ages the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates. This deterioration leads to fine lines, wrinkles , large pores and uneven skin texture
SkinPen comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This process results in skin remodelling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin.
Any product applied to the skin during or immediately after a SkinPen Treatment is absorbed into the basal layers of the skin. It can be used any time of the year and is a short procedure time of approximately 30 minutes.
There are mild post-procedure effects, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, with a quick 24 hour recovery time. We recommend 3-6 procedures for optimal results for the face, neck, décolletage, and body and it is safe for all skin types.
SkinPen Mechanical Micro-Needling V Manual Derma Rollering
The difference between manual dermal rollers and the Mechanical SkinPen device is the more micro-punctures a device is able to achieve, the more dramatic the results will be. With the majority of dermal rollers, the maximum achievable number of holes is somewhere between 300 and 400 holes per second. SkinPen Precision has its 14-tip needle head and the Smart Advantage motor that produces 7000 revolutions per minute, producing 98,000 channels per minute.
Dermal rollers are simply outdated consisting of a rolling pin covered with tiny needles. During a Derma roller treatment, the roller is rolled across the skin, leaving behind a trail of microscopic punctures. While the needle roller is effective, the rolling action causes the needles to enter and exit the skin at an angle, creating lateral epidermal tears, this makes the treatment much more uncomfortable, and often causes a longer downtime for you.
