Microneedling helps with skin texture, tone, and complexion, and is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat acne scars for ages 22 and up.

With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment – and step out with confidence.

SkinPen by Bellus Medical, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

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

  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

  • Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Best of all, SkinPen works.
Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.

Here’s what you can expect from a SkinPen treatment:

  • A plan for optimal results. I will recommend a plan based on your individual goals; Maintenance of your procedure might require multiple treatments.

  • A comfortable procedure. Based on your needs, I will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area.  Wear a tank top or v-neck that is comfortable and can get wet/dirty.

  • A short procedure time. Plan an hour for the visit; the microneedling will likely take about 30 minutes.

  • Virtually pain-free. Most report feeling only the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.

  • Minimal downtime. The skin will appear slightly pink immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild sunburn. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over time without any further complications. 

  • Soothing aftercare. You will be provided Skinfuse® LIFT, a clean, non-cytotoxic hydrogel used to prevent the skin from drying out post-treatment.
