SkinPen is a medical device that uses microneedling technology to improve the appearance of skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. The SkinPen device uses multiple tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin, which trigger the body’s natural healing process and the production of new collagen and elastin.
Microneedling with SkinPen can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture and tone. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires little downtime, making it a popular option for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing more invasive treatments.
SkinPen technology is FDA-approved and is typically performed by a licensed medical professional, such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. As with any medical procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects associated with SkinPen microneedling, including temporary redness, swelling, and bruising. It’s important to discuss these risks with your healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.
