SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first FDA-cleared micro-needling device.
It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is the effective remodelling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound repair process:
The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
The needle lengths used range from 0.5mm to 2.5mm, which allow for making a selection according to the patients need and concerns.
SkinPen can be used to treat and improve the appearance of:
– fine lines and wrinkles
– stretch marks
– enlarged pores
– skin rejuvenation
The effect of Microneedling on hair growth
The microneedles in the Microneedling cartridge create tiny injury sires across the skin. The blood vessels are located in the dermis layer of the skin. When needling to a certain depth, we can help activate the blood supply to the area to create a better environment for hair growth.
