All About SkinPen
SkinPen is not like the usual way you take care of your skin. During microneedling sessions, it reduces the look of fine lines, moderate-to-severe wrinkles, deep folds, and scars all over the body.
It is a medical-grade device that the FDA has approved. It has become the best way to do microneedling. This precise tool lets you start your skin’s natural healing process in a controlled manner.
It also helps by making thousands of tiny cuts, or “micro-injuries,” in your skin. This causes the body to produce new, healthy collagen without making scars.
SkinPen at Arabella Medical Aesthetics
SkinPen Treatment at Arabella is guaranteed safe for all skin types and rejuvenates them. It also makes more collagen, which softens the look of stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The number of treatments you need depends on your skin’s condition and goals. Most people see results four to six weeks after their last treatment. Our tool for microneedling is the most effective one on the market.
What can I expect when I use the SkinPen?
Tiny needles will go about 1 mm deep into your skin during treatment with this new, cutting-edge device. If you are treating a large area, like the abdomen, or more than one area, like the face, neck, and hands, this skincare treatment usually takes about an hour.
But the time it takes to treat skin problems will depend on what you’re trying to fix, how bad it is, how healthy your collagen is, and other things. Most anti-aging treatments for wrinkles, lines, folds, and loss of volume only need to be done once or twice a year.
You may need three to four treatments spaced six weeks apart to get the right results in the first year. If you have deep scars or stretch marks, you may need up to six treatments before seeing a big difference.
Is SkinPen Safe?
There are a few things that make this thing stand out. But the fact that it is safe is one of the best reasons to get treatment with such a high-quality device. In the United States, the highest safety standard is approved by the FDA.
This device has also been approved by Health Canada, marked with the CE mark in Europe, and approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and ISO. Therefore, there’s nothing for you to worry about its safety.
What to Look Forward to After a SkinPen Treatment
Even though each client’s experience is different, the following is what most people can expect after a SkinPen session:
- Mild redness and swelling for a few days after treatment.
- Slight pain for the first 24 hours.
- Mild bruising A few days of minor crusting and scabbing after each session.
- Skin that is dry and tight.
When will you see changes?
Though most patients feel better immediately, the full results won’t be seen for up to 4 weeks, and they will keep improving for up to 6 months. Most people undergo a series of 3 to 4 treatments, each about four weeks apart.
Medical studies have shown that patients’ skin generally improves by 45–55%. The patients notice that their skin feels and looks smoother. There is also a decrease in fine lines and crepey skin; acne scars, brown spots, and stretch marks can also improve.
Usually, patients say that their skin tone and texture have changed noticeably.
The risk associated with the treatment
Like any other medical procedure, microneedling has some risks. Still, it has been used for a long time and seems relatively safe with few side effects. Even though a numbing cream is used before the procedure, you might feel minor pain or discomfort during the process and sunburn for a day or two afterward.
Patients need to do what they are told about how to take care of their skin after the procedure to avoid infection. The needle holes are small and heal quickly, but if they aren’t cared for properly, they can let bacteria in.
Discoloration can happen for a short time after the procedure. This is more likely to happen to people with darker skin. Still, it is usually only temporary and goes away quickly. As microneedling has evolved, different substances have been used during the procedure to improve results.
However, since absorption is so much higher, allergic or irritant reactions are possible, though these seem rare. Clinical tests have shown that 90% of people who used the Skin Pen were happy with the results and would recommend it to their family and friends.
This says a lot about how safe this device is, which is why patients who do their research choose Skin Pen.
Is SkinPen a good idea for me?
The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for microneedling with this cutting-edge device is to meet with a skin expert for a consultation.
But because the device is so safe, almost anyone could be a good candidate. For instance, it is safe for all skin types, including oily, sensitive, and normal skin. Again, even better, it is safe for all skin tones.
