SkinPen® (microneedling/collagen induction therapy) restores your skin’s natural architecture. This consists of collagen, elastin, and extracellular matrix, which form the support framework of your skin, just like the springs support a mattress. The same way a mattress sinks as the springs wear out, your skin develops fine lines, wrinkles, laxity as your collagen and elastin get depleted.
Microneedling helps us tap into the skin’s repair mechanism but without an actual injury. We are tricking the skin into thinking its injured with a MICROinjury which turns on the repair process resulting in healthy collagen and elastin structures being produced.
The skin regeneration process needs to be supported and maintained for 4-6 weeks before results become visible on the surface. During this time, you will be advised on how best to protect and nurture your skin.
Studies have shown microneedling to boost collagen production by up to 300% over a course of 3-6 treatments.
