Smart Skin Technology: How technology differentiates SkinPen and Skinfuse
The SkinPen micro-needling device is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and acne scars. SkinPen®’s state-of-the-art technology is designed to stimulate your skin’s ability to repair itself.
By creating hundreds of vertical microscopic channels in the dermis, SkinPen® stimulates the natural remodeling of the skin, driving skin rejuvenation results with little downtime. Smart Skin Technology includes the Skinfuse line of skincare products—specifically formulated to be used after the SkinPen procedure—as Skinfuse optimizes skin rejuvenation results.
The SkinPen/SkinFuse Advantage
SkinPen can be used on all skin types. Because SkinPen only penetrates but doesn’t significantly damage the epidermis, the melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) in the epidermis don’t increase pigment production causing hyperpigmentation. Therefore, SkinPen is appropriate for all skin types in the Fitzpatrick Skin Type (FST) scale, including people with dark or tanned skin who are particularly susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
Recovery time is minimal. With SkinPen, the risk of infection and scarring is minimal. Slight swelling and pinkness/redness (like a mild sunburn) may last two to four days after the SkinPen procedure.
Skinfuse post-procedure protocol augments the skin rejuvenation process. Skinfuse delivers essential nutrients into the skin to optimize the results of the SkinPen micro-needling procedure. In addition to nutrients received from a proper diet, Skinfuse products directly give the skin what it needs to repair itself and restore its natural balance after micro-needling. Skinfuse post-procedure products contain ingredients that assist in tissue remodeling:
- Vitamin C: essential for collagen production; strong antioxidant
- Vitamin A: promotes skin turnover (thickens skin); decreases collagen breakdown
- Copper peptides: essential for collagen production
- Vitamin E: strong antioxidant
- Magnesium: increases circulation; strong antioxidant
- Zinc: anti-inflammatory; collagen production
- Ginger extract: inhibits the destructive enzyme elastase (activated in the skin by UV rays)
What Skinfuse doesn’t have
Skinfuse products don’t contain ingredients that may hinder or reverse the benefits of the SkinPen micro-needling procedure by causing inflammation or delaying wound repair. Skinfuse products are free from:
- Artificial colors
- Artificial fragrances
- Sodium lauryl sulfate
- Propylene glycol
- Chemical sunscreen
When used together, SkinPen and Skinfuse work better. The Skinfuse products were designed to complement the SkinPen procedure by helping to further promote tissue remodeling and wound repair, optimizing the results of the micro-needling procedure.
