SkinPen® by Crown Aesthetics is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA.  This medical-grade, state-of-art precision tool is used to address acne scars and the symptoms of aging.  SkinPen® Micro Therapy is a highly effective treatment that helps to reduce the signs of aging and enhance your skin’s appearance by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin.  SkinPen® is also used to decrease the appearance of stretch marks on the body.

How Does it Work?

Each of our bodies has innate processes that react to injury by producing new cells and extracellular materials to heal the damage.  The SkinPen® achieves results by taking advantage of this natural process through the use of a finely-tuned micro-needling pen.  SkinPen creates controlled micro-punctures or micro-channels to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage.  The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.  These “fractionated” micro-channels are created thanks to the design of the SkinPen®’s disposable needle cartridge, which achieves results without the use of thermal energy or chemicals applied to the skin.  SkinPen is also effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and stretch marks.  The SkinPen has also recently been approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles on the neck.

What are the benefits of a fractionated approach with microneedling?
  • A fast and safe method for inducing the production of collagen
  • Requires no thermal energy and is entirely non-ablative
  • Promotes care free healing
  • Safe for all skin types
  • No major downtime
What should I expect during my treatment?

After thoroughly evaluating your skin and explaining the treatment to you, your Aesthetician will begin by using a topical anesthetic on the treatment area to avoid discomfort.  Then, using the SkinPen, the Aesthetician will make a series of small pricks under the skin.  These are typically not visible after treatment.  The pricks put your body’s defenses into action, stimulating the production of collagen and other healing compounds, which, in turn, smooth the skin and add volume, producing a fresher, younger look.  After this part of the treatment, a soothing and healing serum will be applied.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal microneedling results, noticeable changes are typically seen just one week following treatment and gradually improve as the body’s healing process promotes the production of healthy new cells and extracellular substances.  Patients with uneven skin tone and fine lines may see SkinPen® results after just one procedure, while those looking to soften the appearance of acne scarring may require a series of treatments.
