The SkinPen II Microneedling treatment builds collagen, reduces scarring, and creates a micro-channelled path for deep product penetration. A series of at least 3 treatments is recommended to achieve desired results. Downtime is 2-5 days.
Our client's skin is numbed prior to treatment for comfort. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or H-Lyft (a proprietary blend of antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid) is applied liberally for the skin's absorption of nutrient rich, anti-aging healing properties, and to ensure ease and comfortable gliding of the microneedling pen. A single use needle cartridge is used for each client, per treatment for sanitary and health purposes. The Skin Pen is then glided across the skin's surface several times so that the ultra fine needles may make tiny punctures in the skin at a controlled depth. These “canals” allow for deeper penetration of either PRP or H-Lyft gel which help build collagen and speed up the healing process. As the needles glide over and punctures through the skin, they break through scar tissue and hyperpigmentation, promoting collagen production and skin cell regeneration. The appearance of pinpoint dots and slight bleeding are the goal of this treatment. The regenerative (collagen building) and healing (breaking down of scar tissue and hyperpigmentation) effects from this treatment happen for up to 6 months so full results take time to see.
