Microneedling with SkinPen®
Beauty below the surface
Since everyone’s body reacts to injury based on several factors (e.g., genetics, diet, lifestyle), SkinPen® results will vary. The number of sessions required and the depth of the procedure will depend on what skin conditions your practitioner is working to address.
Produce radiant results with SkinPen®
The results of SkinPen® vary based on age, the condition of the skin, the number of procedures provided, and the extent to which post-procedure care is followed.
- Age of the skin: Younger skin cells may respond to SkinPen® quicker and with fewer procedures. Dynamic results may also be seen in older skin, particularly with multiple procedures and a strong commitment to the use of a topical skincare regimen designed to feed the skin cells the nutrients they need.
- Condition of the skin: Skin cells scarred by acne, trauma or surgery may take longer to respond than healthy skin cells. Your SkinPen® provider will evaluate your skin to determine the appropriate course of procedures and post-procedure skincare to allow results in the damaged skin cells, while optimizing your healthy skin cells.
- Number of procedures: While results may be seen as early as one procedure, a series of three procedures are recommended to see results and achieve your goals. Your SkinPen® clinician will evaluate your skin and prescribe a course of procedures appropriate for your needs and goals. As the skin continues to age and we continue to battle skin conditions and environmental stress, a plan for continued skin maintenance is advised. Maintenance typically consists of a periodic (e.g. once per quarter) SkinPen® procedure and the use of appropriate topical skincare products such as Skinfuse®.
- Post-procedure care: Your skin cells need the right nutrients at the right time to provide the highest opportunity for results. In addition, the avoidance of topical ingredients known to induce inflammation in the skin or affect the skin’s natural repair mechanisms is critical to the results and should be avoided. The carefully selected formulations of the Bellus Medical Skinfuse® post-procedure protocol deliver the key nutrients to tend to your skin.
Skinfuse® was intentionally created with specific forms of each nutrient to allow them the best chance of reaching the target tissues to receive optimal benefits.
Custom Sessions Produce Desired Results
While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal microneedling results, noticeable changes may be seen just one week following the procedure and gradually improve as the body’s healing process promotes collagen remodeling.
Patients with uneven skin-tone and fine lines will achieve optimal results in a series of three procedures. Other patients may require several procedures.
