SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
Bellus Medical’s SkinPen® microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cell damage. More specifically, SkinPen starts the three-phase wound-repair process:
- Phase 1: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.
- Phase 2: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells. Plus a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase 3: Remodeling. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound.
Procedures take about 30 minutes, depending on the area treated and the desired results. Due to their non-invasive nature, microneedling sessions usually require little downtime.
