Few things are more frustrating than watching your skin go from soft and supple to wrinkled and weathered. Unfortunately, in most cases, it’s only a matter of time.
The good news is there’s a way to take back your skin with the help of SkinPen® microneedling by Crown Aesthetics.
Our dermatology specialists at Sanford Dermatology are proud to offer our patients this groundbreaking technology that provides the safest and fastest way to flawless skin.
Here’s a closer look at how it works.
Getting to know SkinPen
SkinPen is the first microneedling product with the FDA’s stamp of approval and clinical studies to boot. The tiny needles in the SkinPen create hundreds to thousands of micro-injuries in your skin. That may sound brutal, but it’s necessary to kick-start your body’s natural wound-healing process.
When your body senses an injury, it responds in a variety of ways, including repairing and rebuilding damaged tissue by boosting collagen production.
And that’s exactly what your worn-out skin needs to snap back to its former glory. Over time and at the hands of sun damage, chronic acne, and even pollution in the air, your skin starts to lose its stores of collagen and, with it, its structure and silky smooth texture.
SkinPen treatments effectively reverse the damage your skin has sustained over the years, making it smooth and soft once again.
Why SkinPen is better
There are more than a few reasons to opt for SkinPen over other options, but one of the best things about SkinPen is that it’s safe for all Fitzpatrick skin types and tones. We’re excited that virtually all our patients can benefit from this revolutionary technology.
But the good news doesn’t stop there.
Unlike chemical peels and laser treatments that wreak havoc on your skin and cause long-term damage, SkinPen treatments (when performed by a licensed professional and appropriately spaced) can be used for years.
Heard that aesthetic treatments are painful and require downtime? After a clinical trial, 90% of the subjects said they would recommend SkinPen to friends and family. Bonus: We perform this minimally invasive treatment right in our office, and you don’t need to spend tons of time in recovery. In fact, most of our patients can get back to their routines within the first day.
SkinPen is also a trailblazer when it comes to safety. The device comes with sterile, single-use cartridges designed to keep everyone safe. A built-in mechanism called a BioSheath provides a barrier to prevent cross-contamination, and Skinfuse™ Life HG hydrogel protects your skin during your treatment.
The ideal candidate
SkinPen addresses two of the most frustrating skin concerns: neck wrinkles and acne scars. We don’t recommend SkinPen treatments for anyone with:
- Active skin cancer in the treatment areas
- Open wounds, sore, or irritated skin in the treatment areas
- An allergy to stainless steel or aesthetic
- Any bleeding disorders
Pregnant and nursing women and those taking prescription medications with the ingredient isotretinoin should also reconsider SkinPen treatments.
Don’t worry. Before we recommend SkinPen, we thoroughly review your health status to ensure you’re a good candidate.
