Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure that typically uses derma rollers or other devices, containing tiny sterile needles that temporarily creates small microscopic channels in your skin. This prompts the deeper layers of the skin to rebuild, essentially kickstarting the body’s natural healing process.
How is micro-needling with SkinPen different?
SkinPen has changed how we see micro-needling. Its 12 point disposable needle cartridges make it more sanitary than traditional derma rollers, whilst the depth of these needles can also be adjusted, ranging from 0.25mm to 2.5mm. Its design also means that clinicians are able to easily reach smaller areas, as it is wireless and lightweight, meaning you can safely treat more sensitive areas, such as round the eyes.
This allows for tailored treatment plans for each patient’s personal needs, making it safe for all skin types. Alongside it’s precise results, the FDA approved SkinPen is the only 100% sealed cartridge currently on the market and operates a single-use lockout feature, preventing cross-contamination, making it more sterile and safer than other derma pens.
The full SkinPen procedure doesn’t just involve the device itself. It combines advanced mechanical technology with innovative skin care products that are specifically formulated to enhance the patients experience, to soothe and nourish the skin, without using ingredients that can interfere with or interrupt the skin’s healing process.
The way micro-needling and SkinPen vary, is that the SkinPen is tailored to your skin as it is more versatile in its depth and the range of areas it can cover. SkinPen also comes with a full skincare routine to optimise the results of the procedure.
‘I would highly recommend microneedling if you are trying to stay away from fillers. I wanted to age more naturally by building collagen from the inside out. So I have chosen to do different types of laser procedures in the last 10 years. By far…. microneediing has shown me the fastest results after only two treatments on a two month time frame. They recommend three treatments and I still have one more treatment to go. I am a happy camper.’ Realself review – Review has been edited for length and clarity.
