Microneedling

Microneedling causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage.

SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.

There are three phases to the wound-repair process. The first phase is Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue. Phase two is Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops. The third and final phase is Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment – and step out with confidence.

Microneedling FAQs

Will microneedling work for me?

Unlike some alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically proven to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark. Likewise, unlike lasers or chemical peels that can damage skin over the long term, SkinPen treatments, when properly spaced and overseen by a physician, can be used for years.

How does it work?

SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation.2 Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.

What can I expect?

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
