The MicroPen® provides our skin care clients in SouthWest Florida with an effective method for naturally revitalizing the look and feel of their skin. The MicroPen activates the natural restorative processes of the body to transform blemished and damaged tissue into smoother, clearer, more vibrant skin. Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Each patient has unique skin needs and requirements. The variable pen position feature allows MicroPen® professionals to customize a treatment for best clinical results.
How Is MicroPen® Different From Dermal Needling Rollers?
Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Unlike Automated Micro-needling the roller does not create a precise vertical action. The lack of precision can contribute to greater discomfort and inconsistent effects to the skin.
What Are The Benefits?
The benefits of micro-needling can included a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. MicroPen® may also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
What Areas Of The Body Can be Treated?
MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How Is MicroPen® Different From Lasers?
No heat also equals less downtime! Most MicroPen patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.
How Is The Procedure Done?
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the MicroPen. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of saline solution to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered.
What Is The Downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
When Will I See The Results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months .
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
