The SkinPen uses 12 surgical-grade stainless steel needles to create thousands of micro-channels in the treated skin. This fractionated approach allows for two main benefits:
Temporary micro-channels allow for superior penetration and diffusion of topicals during and post-procedure, allowing for optimal delivery
Fractionated injuries to the dermal tissues without ablation or introduction of thermal energy allows for quick, safe, and effective percutaneous collagen induction therapy, even in patients with darker skin types.
These benefits allow for the cosmetic microneedling treatment of many skin conditions which may require either collagen remodeling (i.e., photo-aging, acne scarring, stretch-marks), optimization of topical drug delivery (i.e., acne, melasma) or both.
The SkinPen Advantage
SkinPen is the safest, most effective vertical microneedling device as it offers state-of-the-art skin rejuvenating technology. By creating a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the dermis, SkinPen stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin.
SkinPen & Sculptra Combination
Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.
Rather than instantly filling or smoothing lines like their counterparts, collagen-stimulating fillers are longer-lasting and add volume that actually lifts the soft tissues, ultimately diminishing lines. The boost in collagen is essentially an immune reaction to the injected material that helps plump the area from within. Applied topically after SkinPen in Austin, Sculptra is able to use the open microchannels as a pathway into the dermis, enhancing the collagen production.
