SkinPen is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.
The variable depth (.25mm to 2.5mm) of SkinPen and the cordless design provide significant versatility to create change in many areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The actual procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of damage on the skin and results in little to no downtime for the patient.
Advanced Microneedle Cartridge
SkinPen offers the most advanced microneedle cartridge on the market today. This is the differentiator between SkinPen and other technologies. Patient safety is the number one concern at Bellus Medical. Within months of market introduction of SkinPen, Bellus Medical launched the Advanced Microneedle Cartridge, a single-use disposable tip, with these unique features:
- Patented Bio-Sleeve technology to prevent cross-contamination
- Exhaust port to prevent suction and reduce risk of broken capillaries
- 12 sterile 32-gauge medical grade steel needles to minimize epidermal destruction and maximize results.
The Bio-Sleeve feature on the SkinPen microneedle cartridge is pivotal to the safety of patients. This component allows you to perform a SkinPen treatment confident that fluids, serums and blood generated during the procedure do not penetrate the cartridge and enter the body of the device, significantly reducing the risk cross contamination.
Bella Rosa’s Collagen Induction Therapy Technique
image010Research has shown that collagen induction therapy with a microneedling device such as the SkinPen alone will tighten skin, resolve fine lines, reduce stretch marks and scars and overall improve the skin through collagen synthesis. At Bella Rosa Rejuvenation Clinic, we have discovered that our unique combination of SkinPen with other products and treatments yields better results. Depending on your skin concerns, we can combine SkinPen treatments with the use of topicals, lasers, or other aesthetic procedures to create a safe and effective treatment plan geared to optimize your results. SkinPen can also be done during your scheduled surgery or office visit with Dr. Schusterman.
With minimal to no downtime, this treatment can be done without extensive planning or hibernation. SkinPen is safe to use on all skin types without the chance for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or other adverse side effects typically associated with more aggressive forms of resurfacing. Collagen Induction therapy is gaining nationwide attention as being the “go-to” procedure for patients ready for an effective treatment, but not quite ready for a major resurfacing procedure.
