What Is SkinPen / Microneedling?
SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. The SkinPen has also proven to help reduce fine line & wrinkles, tighten skin and increase collagen. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.
What kind of skin conditions does SkinPen treat?
The SkinPen can be used for a wide range of dermatological treatments which include:
Acne scar improvement
Skin tone and texture
How does the treatment work?
SkinPen provides correct and controlled coagulation and hemostasis to help stimulate collagen production and provide skin tightening and rejuvenation. The microneedle depth can be adjusted accordingly for each and every treatment area, especially for delicate areas such as under the eyes, the forehead and cheek bones.
Can SkinPen be used on all skin types?
SkinPen, unlike laser treatments, can definitely be used on all skin types.
Is there downtime after the procedure?
Patients usually experience very minimal to no downtime after the SkinPen procedure. Only a few restrictions are common after any microneedling procedure. The treated area may be red for up to a full day. Your downtime may increase if the magnitude of the procedure is deeper. Be sure to ask your specialist for a detailed estimate of downtime. You may apply makeup after the 24 hours.
How long does it take to perform the SkinPen procedure and how many treatments will I need?
The SkinPen procedure normally lasts about 20 minutes. It will take an additional 30 minutes if the treatment area needs to be prepared. Obvious results are generally seen after just one procedure. A three-treatment series is highly recommended to help you achieve maximum benefits. After the initial three treatments it is recommended to receive one treatment every 3 to 6 months to maintain results and continue as a preventative for anti-aging. Can be used in conjunction with injectables such as Botox and/or fillers.
Why add STEM CELLS to your Microneedling Treatment?
Stem cells are the building blocks of the entire body. They form the foundation of our body’s repair and regeneration system, and actually predate every other type of cell during birth. Before brain cells, heart cells, or lung tissue cells develop, stem cells are present. Stem cells are incredibly versatile, capable of changing themselves into almost any other type of cell in the body to help repair and regenerate damaged areas. They can rebuild bone, tendon tissue, muscle tissue, skin tissue and more. These cells have also been linked to the aging process. That is, as our bodies age, the number of stem cells within them decreases. While stem cells can renew themselves, they do eventually die. With fewer stem cells to repair damage, our skin begins to show signs of what we call aging. Adding stem cell serum to your microneedling treatment can increase your results by thickening and tightening your skin.
