SkinPen Microneedling In The Woodlands

WHAT IS SKINPEN?

SkinPen is the safest, most effective vertical micro-needling device that offers state-of-the-art skin rejuvenating technology.

How does it work?

SkinPen stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin. By creating a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the dermis, which allows for superior penetration and diffusion of topicals both during and post-procedure, without ablation (heat, or introduction of thermal energy). These fractionated injuries are quick, safe, and effective percutaneous (through the skin) collagen induction therapy.

What’s more, SkinPen is different than older, traditional micro-needling technologies. Traditional micro-needling dermarollers can bend, break, or even rust. As a result, infection or scarring may occur with reuse. SkinPen is different. Through an optimized micro-channel creation, SkinPen uses straight, medical-grade needles to penetrate at a 90 degree angle to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin formation, encouraging your skin to look and feel healthier.

This Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), or micro-needling, is the procedure by which the body’s natural response to healing is used to increase the amount of extracellular matrix – such as collagen or elastin – in the skin. The micro-channels created by the SkinPen allow for leakage of blood, serum, and lymph in a controlled and temporary manner. These “injuries” are enough to initiate the wound healing cascade, which is composed of three basic phases: Inflammation, Proliferation, and Remodeling.

Phase One | Inflammation: Activated by piercing the dermal tissue, platelets release cytokines and growth factors that act as signals for the body’s immune system. Neutrophils and macrophages cells are sent in to disinfect the wounds, clear the debris, increase the blood supply (a process called angiogenesis), and begin the creation of fresh, new cellular and extracellular materials (the granulation process).

Phase Two | Proliferation: In this stage, the fibroblasts (cells that make up much of the dermis and create the extracellular matrix), keratinocytes, and epidermal cells continue to divide to populate the areas of damage and secrete growth factors and extracellular matrix, such as elastin and collagen.

Phase Three | Remodeling: At this stage, the wound has been replaced with new dermal tissues, and the newly formed vasculature is now matured. The collagen in the newly formed tissue is now replaced with the stronger collagen, and the tissue contracts to cause a “shrink-wrap” effect on the skin.

In short, the SkinPen Advantages are: 1) offering results to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, and skin texture; 2) a minimally invasive, non-ablative treatment; 3) a skin rejuvenating treatment with a superior safety profile, and 4) an in-office procedure that is quick and simple.
