Hitting reset on your skin can be as simple as a 30-minute microneedling treatment. SkinPen is our microneedling device of choice here at Beacon Face & Dermatology not only because it is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device but also due to the fact that it does not rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are natural and safe for all skin tones and types.
SkinPen rejuvenates from the inside out, by stimulating the skin to naturally repair and regenerate.
SkinPen is a quick and easy treatment with little downtime, delivering results that last up to six months.
How does it work?
SkinPen’s microneedles pierce the skin creating microscopic holes referred to as micro-channels which stimulate your skin, kicking your body’s natural healing process into high gear. Your skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow. As a result the wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels which are comprised of rich collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins are what helps to improve the appearance of the skin.
How Quickly will I see results?
Results can be seen from 1 week post treatment. Depending on the skin concerns you are looking to treat, a minimum of 3 treatments a minimum 6 weeks apart are advised for optimal results and once completed, results can be seen for 9 – 12 months.
Is this treatment painful?
Prior to your treatment we apply a local anaesthetic cream to ensure your comfort.
Am I a candidate?
Anyone looking to deal with fine lines, wrinkles, acne scaring, enlarged pores, pigmentation, rosecea and uneven skin texture will benefit from Skinpen. Regardless of skin tone or colour, this treatment is safe for all.
