Introducing SkinPen™

The Next Advancement in Micro-Therapy, and now available at Renew Facial Plastic Surgery

SkinPen™ is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.

SkinPen by Bellus Medical is a state-of-the-art micro-needling tool available through skincare professionals only. SkinPen is designed to assist in the process of your body's natural remodeling process.

Immediately following an injury, our skin begins the process of dissolving tissue damage and replacing it with new cells. Micro needling allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin to automatically trigger new collagen and elastin.

SkinPen procedures are beneficial because they can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the look of acne scars.

One of the most exciting things about SkinPen is that it can be used on all types of skin.

SkinPen’s variable needle depth allows for versatility and therefore it can be used on many parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

The procedure typically takes 30 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas where microneedling is to be performed. The unique design of SkinPen allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment very comfortable for most patients.

Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Individual results may vary.

Many patients notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Keep in mind dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the final result for up to 3-6 months following your final session. Individual results will vary.

The number of procedures will be determined by your skincare professional based upon your individual procedure goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of 3 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. Your provider will develop a maintenance plan tailored to your needs.

Patients typically can resume their normal makeup regimen 2-3 days following their SkinPen procedure, depending on the area and type of treatment performed.

Consult your physician to see if SkinPen is an option for you.
