SkinPen is an aesthetic medical device manufactured by Crown Aesthetics. The product is designed to improve scaring and discoloration by creating controlled microinjuries to the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The microinjuries trigger the three-stage wound repair process which benefits the skin with a more even-looking and flawless appearance. Furthermore, treatments with SkinPen are rejuvenating and stimulates collagen, softens fine lines, improves acne scarring, leaving the skin firmer, and smoother.
Treatments with SkinPen take approximately 30 minutes dependending on the area treated and the desired result. The downtime after a SkinPen treatment is minor due to its non-invasive nature.
HOW MICONEEDLING WORK
When doing microneedling treatments with the SkinPen it creates controlled microinjuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The result is the effective regeneration of scar tissue while maintaining the overall structure of the skin unbroken.
There are three stages to the wound repair process
1st stage: Inflammation. The micro-injuries activate the immune system to disinfect the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.
2nd stage: Proliferation. The wounds will rebuild with new granulation cells, which are a part of the extracellular matrix and a new network of blood vessels grows.
3rd stage: Remodeling. The wounds will be replaced with new dermal tissue and blood vessels.
