What Is SkinPen And Why Should You Have It Done?

At birth, skin cells turn over every seven days; new cells are born, rise to the surface, die off and form a protective layer around the face and body. Unfortunately by age 30 blood flow to your skin (along with your body’s natural exfoliation process) begins to slow down resulting in uneven skin texture, acne, discoloration, and dull lifeless skin. While the methods for exfoliation vary – from scrubs and masks to chemical peels – the desired end result is the same. Some methods can be quite harsh but good exfoliation need not be a painful experience. 

SkinPen is the safest, most effective vertical micro-needling device that 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 and treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks while improving skin texture. 

Here are some of the reasons why you should have SkinPen done:

1. It's Natural
SkinPen is a micro-needling tool that uses sharp needles to create tiny holes in your skin. In response to these micro-injuries, your body produces collagen and elastin to heal the wound naturally. SkinPen doesn’t use chemicals, heat or toxins to burn or remove layers of your skin or paralyze your facial muscles.

2. It's Safe and Comfortable 
There are minimal side effects and downtime following a SkinPen procedure. Slight swelling and redness/pinkness in the area (like that from a mild sunburn) usually last only two to four days, so you can return to work or social activities quickly. SkinPen has minimal risk of scarring or infections.

3. It's Versatile
SkinPen can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars. SkinPen can be used on many different body parts, including face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. SkinPen needles adjust to different lengths, allowing us to customize your procedure based on skin’s thickness and your specific needs.

4. It Works On All Skin Types
Because SkinPen doesn’t affect the epidermis (where the skin pigment resides), it can be used on all skin types. 

Our highly trained and certified estheticians will help you make an informed decision on which skin rejuvenation techniques are right for you given your particular skin type.
