Naturally remodeling your skin with SkinPen®
What is SkinPen?

SkinPen is the leading microneedling device and it works to remodel the skin by creating temporary microscopic channels in your skin.

This simple procedure activates your body’s natural skin-healing power to increase collagen and elastin so your skin returns to a healthier looking and youthful appearance.

 

Watch your skin look more youthful and rejuvenated with SkinPen.

What are collagen and elastin?

Collagen and elastin are the essential protein fibers in the skin that give it support and elasticity. As we age, these fibers break down and can cause wrinkles.

 

Regenerating the collagen and elastin in the skin can help to give you a more youthful appearance overall.

 

Collagen also plays a key role in scarring, such as those resulting from acne. Skin remodeling can have an important role in the improved appearance of this condition.

 

SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.

How does it work?

How does microneedling work? It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

Phase 1 - Inflammation

 

Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

Phase 2 - Proliferation

 

The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase 3 - Remodeling

 

The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

SkinPen Microneedling Pre & Post Procedure Instructions
How to Prepare for Your Upcoming Appointment:
  • Avoid sun exposure for 24 hours prior to the procedure. If you have been overexposed to the sun (sunburn) in the days preceding your appointment, please call our office to reschedule. 

  • Allow 2 weeks after spray or self-tanning lotions before your SkinPen procedure. 

  • Discontinue the use of topical products containing Retin-A, Retinol, or Vitamin A for 7 days prior to your SkinPen procedure. 

  • Wait at least six months post isotretinoin (Accutane) use before your SkinPen procedure, as isotretinoin use may impair wound healing and increase risk of scar tissue formation. 

  • lf you are on autoimmune therapy, ask your Physician if you should refrain from taking any medications prior to your SkinPen procedure.

  • If you are prone to herpes simplex infections, such as cold sore, please contact the office to see if prophylactic treatment is needed. 

  • You are advised to keep your skin clean of cosmetics or sunscreen for 48 hours post-procedure. 

  • This procedure may not be performed on active breakouts or open lesions.

  • The treated area may be pink and mildly inflamed (similar to the appearance of a mild sunburn) for 24-48 hours following your SkinPen procedure.

Post-Treatment Guidelines:
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or excessive perspiration for the rest of the day, as excess blood flow and sweat can cause discomfort and irritation to compromised skin. BUMP up your water intake.
