WHAT IS SKINPEN®?
SKINPEN® is the only FDA approved device designed to perform a cosmetic procedure that utilises the technology of automatic skin micropunctures using sterile needles contained in a disposable end.
WHAT DOES SKINPEN® MICRO-NEEDLING TREATMENT INVOLVE?
During the SkinPen® treatment, thanks to fractional micro-needling, we can insert active substances into the skin, stimulating the skin to remodel and create networks of new collagen fibres.
The micro-injuries intentionally caused during the treatment initiate natural mechanisms of skin regeneration and renewal and speed up its cell divisions.
The preparations delivered into the skin are a cocktail of vitamins, amino acids, micronutrients, hyaluronic acid and plant extracts. Hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen fibres and imbibes water, making the skin optimally moisturised. Thanks to improved vascularisation, the skin is better oxygenated, fairer, healthier.
Also PRP (Platelet Reach Plasma) can be delivered to the skin with SkinPen®.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING SKINPEN® TREATMENT?
The treatment is proceeded by a consultation with a specialist, who gives the patient a referral to the treatment. After the qualification, the therapeutic agent can be applied on the skin that has been prepared and desinfected. Than we dynamically move SkinPen® a few times over the treatment area performing micropunctures .
WHEN DOES THE EFFECT APPEAR AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Effects usually become visible after the second or third treatment in the series, although in some patients they are visible already after the first treatment. The full effect will be stabilized within one month after the last treatment of the series.
Reaction of the body to the treatment is varied and individual.
- Stimulation of collagen and elastin production
- Stimulation of fibroblasts by platelet origin growth factors
- Improved skin density and elasticity
WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS FOR THE TREATMENT?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dilated pores
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven tone
- Surgery and burn scars
- Thin skin
- Atonic skin
- Rejuvenation of hands
- Alopecia and support to hair loss therapy
WHAT EFFECTS CAN BE EXPECTED AFTER THE TREATMENT?
After a series of SkinPen® treatments, the main effect is stimulation of the skin for natural production of collagen and elastin. The treatment helps in absorption of active ingredients into the skin leaving it nourished. It also leads to improvement of the skin tightness leaving it significantly younger. SkinPen® is also used in treatment of acne scars and alopecia. It reduces fine lines and creases, narrows pores and eliminates stretch marks.
Perfect results can be achieved on neck, decolette and back of hand skin as well as other part of the body.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED EFFECT?
The series depends on the skin type and problems reported by the patient. The best effects are achieved after a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart. The therapy is arranged on an individual basis.
WHAT AFTERCARE IS NEEDED?
Immediately after the treatment, the patient may experience mild burning and the feeling of heat. Eight hours after the treatment, the skin should be washed with a delicate cleaning agent for sensitive skin. For skincare, you should use our natural Revieve Clinic™ Skincare products. These products will speed up skin healing and reduce redness and swelling without inhibiting inflammation. You should absolutely apply high-factor sunscreen at least two week after the treatment.
IS THIS A PAINFUL TREATMENT?
You may experience slight discomfort - immediately after the treatment you can feel a slight itching and short-term burning sensation. Reddening and swelling of the treated area may be visible for a few days after the treatment. This is a normal reaction of the body to the treatment, it does not require special care and will disappear on its own.
As after any treatment involving punching of the skin, development of hematomas is possible.
