SkinPen® Bellus Medical is the only FDA approved microneedling device on the market. And Devenir Austin is thrilled to provide its benefits to our patients!
SkinPen® microneedling is minimally invasive, quick, and performed in office. It is an effective and affordable aesthetic procedure that may be used on all skin types and on most parts of the body, including face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
Without lasers or heat, there is little recovery downtime – making it an ideal treatment for a busy lifestyle!
SkinPen® procedures are beneficial to assist in reducing the signs of aging, improving the skin’s appearance, and rejuvenating skin cells.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling is great for treating:
- Acne, chicken pox, and surgical scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Hyper pigmentation and sun damage
- Large pores
The positive results are generated from your own skin’s natural collagen remodeling and elastin.
What is a treatment like?
First, the area is cleansed and a topical anesthetic is applied to minimize any potential discomfort. The sensation is often described as feeling like sandpaper or a cat’s tongue.
How can I expect to look immediately after a treatment?
Immediately following treatment with the SkinPen you will experience slight swelling and redness. This will subside over the next few hours. It is normal for there to be areas that are redder than others as the treatment can be performed deeper depending on the concerns of the patient and the provider’s expertise.
How many treatments will I need?
It’s difficult to put an exact number on how many treatments you’ll need because we have to take many factors into account. We do recommend that you have at least three SkinPen treatments for optimum results, in most cases.
What results can I expect to see?
You’ll notice a visible glow shortly after treatment. Then, as your skin heals and collagen and elastin are produced by your body, you’ll see further effects like smoother, more uniformly toned skin. It may take 3-6 months post treatment to see full results, and you will need multiple treatments for maximum benefits as the treatments have a cumulative impact.
What is SkinPen?
SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the only FDA-cleared microneedling device in the world, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up. With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment – and step out with confidence.
Why do you use SkinPen?
SkinPen is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of acne scars. In fact, 90% of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the treatment to friends and family. It’s a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office with little to no downtime. As the only FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen sets the industry standard for safety.
Will it work for me?
Unlike some alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically proven to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark. Likewise, unlike lasers or chemical peels that can damage skin over the long term, SkinPen treatments, when properly spaced and overseen by a physician, can be used for years.
How does it work?
SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
Is it safe?
Yes, by design. SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures. No other manufacturer can make that claim, which is part of the reason SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the only FDA-cleared microneedling device. Learn more by reviewing our patient labeling document.
Who should not use it?
SkinPen should not be used on patients who have active skin cancer in the treatment area(s); open wounds, sores, or irritated skin in the treatment area(s); an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetics; a hemorrhagic (bleeding) disorder or hemostatic (bleeding) dysfunction; are pregnant or nursing; or are currently taking drugs with the ingredient isotretinoin (such as Accutane).
