What’s a SkinPen® and What’s it For?

When it comes to treatments that help maintain a youthful and radiant complexion, there are a lot of options. But the important thing to keep in mind when doing your research is to make sure you choose a doctor who understands your skincare needs and goals. As a dermatologist in Deerfield Beach, Dr. Green is always on a constant search to offer his patients the best anti-aging procedures, the best skin care treatments, and the best skincare products on the market.

One of those skincare procedures offered at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center is micro needling with SkinPen®. This treatment has become very popular to deal with fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. During this rejuvenation treatment, the SkinPen®, a device that has 14 tiny needles, is used to penetrate the superficial layer of your skin. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by producing collagen to heal itself, which is why this procedure is also called a collagen inducing therapy.

We are very proud to be able to offer SkinPen® to our patients because it is the only FDA-approved option on the market, and it has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of facial acne scars in all skin types.  It’s the ability to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, combined with its ability to minimize cellular damage is also what sets it apart from the rest of the microneedling devices.

The way it works is that first, the SkinPen® pierces the skin, which triggers your immune system to disinfect the wound, increase blood flow and create new tissue. Then, the wound is rebuilt with new cells and a new network of blood vessels. Finally, new dermal tissue replaces the wound giving you healthy, new skin.

It should be mentioned that there are at-home microneedle devices that you can purchase. However, because you’re dealing with needles, it’s best to let medical professionals conduct the procedure. At-home devices can be harder to clean thus they may have a higher risk of causing an infection —something you definitely don’t want.

The microneedle with SkinPen® in-office procedure itself takes about 30 minutes depending on the area being treated and the desired results. Microneedling with SkinPen® is one of the least invasive treatments offered, which allows you to go back to your daily life faster and with less downtime than other procedures. It’s also safe for all skin types and colors.

Let Dr. Green and his dedicated professional medical team help you reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars or stretch marks with this state-of-the-art treatment. Microneedling with SkinPen® is one of the best choices to achieve and maintain your healthy, youthful glow.
