About the Procedure
The procedure requires numbing of the skin so that it can reach tough areas of the skin that are often hard to treat like the eyes and around the lips. The treatment takes about one hour. Side effects are minimal and include redness and slight swelling. Most patients say you just look sunburned. After about three days, skin will look normal. Results are immediate and skin shows great improvement!
This new device uses tiny incisions that can make your skin younger looking with a better complexion. Inside the SkinPen II are 12 stainless steel needles that are rotating to create thousands of tiny incisions. The incisions are so microscopic that the wound that it creates gives your skin a huge boost of collagen from the dermal layer and that boost heals the wounds and thickens the skin.
Medical Aesthetician, Lina Valiukaite, says, “unlike lasers that can thin your skin, the SkinPen II will build the skin back up by tightening skin, reducing pore size, and eliminating dark pigmented spots to create better tone and texture .” Lina also says, “The procedure has had great success for reducing acne scaring. It helps to dissolve the scar and break up that tissue.”
How Long Do the Results of Treatment Last?
The results of a treatment are long lasting. Schedule treatments every 4 to 6 weeks for best results.
Aftercare and Recovery
Generally, patients will see some redness/pinkness for about 24 hours after treatment. To assist in the recovery process, Medical Aesthetician, Lina Valiukaite, suggests that patients do the following:
- Avoid sun exposure and wear a hat for 7 days
- DO NOT use sun screen for 12 hours after treatment
- DO NOT wear make-up for 12 hours after treatment
- Cold sore patients may want to take medication
- Skin will be dry and slightly red for 2-3 days after the procedure. Use a moisturizer that works well with your skin type.
