Common skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, dull and weary skin, skin laxity,
acne, and acne scars affect both men and women as they age.
Although these skin concerns can be addressed using different aesthetic treatment
options, choosing one that can best address your problem can be quite daunting.
Luckily, with SkinPen Microinfusion, you can get the skin rejuvenating and skin resurfacing benefits of microneedling and power serums in one treatment.
What is a SkinPen Micro Infusion?
A SkinPen Micro Infusion is the combination of two clinically proven and advanced skin resurfacing and rejuvenating treatments (i.e., SkinPen and Micro Infusion).
- SkinPen – It is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device that can address fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne scars, and rejuvenate your skin in as little as three treatments.
- Microinfusion – delivers a mix of skin resurfacing and renewing ingredients such as, fillers (HA) or Botox to make your skin appear more youthful.
How Does This Combination Work?
The SkinPen uses tiny needles to make hundreds of micro-injuries in your skin. These micro-injuries trigger a series of healing responses, such as boosting the collagen production in your body to heal and repair the skin, increasing skin cell turnover and resurfacing a healthy new layer of skin.
On the other hand, these micro-injuries also act as microchannels that allow the skin rejuvenating ingredients from the micro infusion to penetrate deeper into the skin. As a result, your skin heals and repairs itself, appearing younger and more radiant from within.
Am I An Ideal Candidate For a SkinPen Micro Infusion?
- Anyone who’s over 22 years of age can get microneedling. However, the minimum age for micro infusion varies based on the ingredients used.
- A SkinPen micro-infusion is ideal if you’re looking to address:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne and acne scars
- Mild skin laxity
- Uneven skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Moreover, both treatments are safe for all skin types and tones.
What To Expect From The Treatment
The treatment is non-invasive and quick (i.e., it takes anywhere between 30 to 45 minutes to complete).
Unlike more invasive skin resurfacing treatments, it doesn’t require any downtime and you can go back to your daily routine as soon as you leave the office, but it’s important to keep in mind your skin could be pink for a few to 24 hours after the treatment.
The number of treatments required to achieve optimal results varies from person to person. However, ideally, it takes up to 3 sessions spaced 30 days apart to get the most out of your SkinPen and micro infusion treatments.
The procedure is safe and the risk of side effects is minimal to none at all. The SkinPen itself comes with a sterile needle set and a sheath that covers it to reduce the risk of contamination and infection.
The results of SkinPen microneedling usually last up to 6 months. However, with micro infusion, you can continue to see an improvement in your skin over a long period of time.
In the right hands, a SkinPen Micro Infusion can treat different skin concerns while improving the overall health and quality of your skin from within.
