The SkinPen by Bellus Medical is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool available through Art Of Wellness. This tool stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation, creating healthier, younger-looking skin. The SkinPen accelerates your skin’s repair process by creating microscopic channels that allow products to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers, resulting in better product outcomes. SkinPen can be used on all skin types at any time of the year for most patients and has minimal downtime.
What are the benefits of SkinPen?
The benefits are that you can reverse years of sun damage and address acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. In short, the SkinPen enhances the overall appearance of aging skin.
What areas of the body can I treat with SkinPen?
The SkinPen is versatile and can be used on all parts of the body, face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back, making it especially helpful with addressing acne scars on the back and stretch marks on the body.
How is the SkinPen procedure performed?
A sterile and disposable cartridge containing 9-11 micro-needles is attached to the tip of the SkinPen. After applying topical serum, the appropriate micro-channeling treatment depth is determined for your unique skin type. Next, in a gentle motion, the pen is glided across the targeted repair areas.
How long does the SkinPen procedure take?
The procedure takes 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated and the severity of the skin’s damage.
What is the downtime after a SkinPen procedure?
Immediately following the treatment, you will notice a healthy pink glow. Your skincare professional will recommend product protocols to aid with your skin’s natural healing process. The total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the repair process’s depth. On average, patients are pink for 2-3 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see the results of SkinPen?
Many patients notice healthier-looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your skin continues to progress over several weeks. Keep in mind dermal collagen remodeling takes place over several months; it is not realistic to expect damage that has occurred over an extensive time to disappear immediately. You may not see the final result until up to 3-6 months following your last session.
How many SkinPen treatments will I need?
Most patients receive a series of 3 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. A person may need 6-8 sessions; this is for patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, or acne scars. We recommend developing a maintenance plan with our skin care professional to help maintain the glow and rejuvenating effects of your personalized SkinPen treatments.
