Mesotherapy with SkinPen is a technique used to revitalize the skin by boosting the fibroblasts responsible for synthesizing collagen.
How does Skinpen work?
SkinPen is a pen comprising around ten needles that very rapidly pierce the skin at a predetermined speed and depth. This technique, also known as « microneedling », is combined with the application of a hydrating serum containing a mixture of vitamins and free hyaluronic acid that will penetrate the microscopic holes created by the microneedling.
By stimulating the fibroblasts in the skin, Dermapen mechanically stimulates the production of collagen. The skin is firmer, hydrated, and plumped, fine lines are improved. Firmed and hydrated, the skin is more beautiful and more radiant.
The treatment is carried out at the office. There is no specific preparation and a session lasts about 30 minutes. For sensitive or anxious patients, an anesthetic cream can be applied 30 minutes before the treatment for greater comfort during the session.
There is no real downtime in the days following the treatment with SkinPen but redness can last for a few hours after the treatment and sometimes the following 3 or 4 days.
The treatment can be carried out as often as you feel the need. In general, it is recommended to start with 3 or 4 sessions 3 weeks apart to boost revitalization. Some patients sometimes undergo treatment once a month for maximal skin hydration and revitalization throughout the year.
Mesotherapy with SkinPen improves the quality of the skin (tone, elasticity, and radiance) but in no way treats the architecture of the face (hollows, jowls, or bags).
