What is Microneedling?

 

SkinPen is the first FDA cleared micro needling device. It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your 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.

There are 3 phases to the wound-repair process:

 

Phase 1: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds and 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
