SkinPen – Safe for all skin types with little to no downtime

SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is a transient, non-surgical, cosmetic micro-needling device for the creation of “micro” skin punctures to improve the appearance of the skin. SkinPen® is an automated microneedling technology device designed for use by medical professionals.

The SkinPen stimulates the skin’s natural ability to repair itself.  As we age and battle chronic skin conditions such as acne, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates.  The deterioration leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin textue.  SkinPen comortabley creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing process.  This process results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominately responsible for the structure of the skin.  The result is more youthful looking skin.
