SkinPen® Precision –
The only FDA approved microneedling device.
Mainstreet Skin & Laser is proud to introduce one of the industry’s leading medical skin rejuvenation treatments.
What is SkinPen Precision (Microneedling)
SkinPen Precision is a Health Canada approved medical device to treat fine lines and wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, surgical and acne scars. SkinPen Precision produces tiny micro channels that cause tissue remodeling to encourage collagen formation. SkinPen is made in the USA and is the safest pen on the market due to its Ergonomic design and its 100% sealed tips. The needles are high end stainless steel tips with a sharp point so you don’t have any dragging or pulling.
SkinPen is not only Health Canada approved but it is also FDA, Australian/New Zealand approved and European approved.
What does the Skin Pen Treat?
The ease of using the Skin Pen device allows me to quickly and efficiently change the depth settings as well as the speed setting- this enables us to treat more surface areas quicker and all over the body.
- Textural improvements & skin tone
- Melasma & Pigmentation discolorations
- Reduce pore size
- Lip wrinkles
- Increased product penetration
- Superficial facial wrinkles
- Acne/Trauma scarring
The treatment is generally done on the face; however, the skin needling therapy can be successfully used on any area of the body.
How does skin needling work?
The theory is actually quite simple- create a small controlled wound and the skin will respond by triggering your body’s own natural collagen production and new skin cells. Depending on the depth we choose during your complimentary consultation, the Skin Pen can offer the skin a rejuvenating treatment by increasing product absorption or the more advanced treatments of wrinkles and scars.
How long until I can see results?
Each patient’s healing time is different and will recover at different speeds, though most start to see results in one to seven days after the first treatment. Immediately after the treatment, patients may notice a redness in the treatment area that resembles a minor sunburn and in some cases, there will be pin-point bleeding depending on the length of the needle penetration. Even a light treatment can enhance the appearance of skin texture and brighten your complexion.
What about Downtime?
Day 1- There may be some Erythema (red appearance) and that will depend on how aggressive the treatment was performed along with some mild swelling.
Day 2- A red hue or pink tone may be present much like mild sunburn. Swelling may be a bit more noticeable on the second day.
Day 3- Skin may still have a slight pinkness to it but should return to a normal colour. Swelling subsides, and you will be prescribed with post-procedure home care.
The only Microneedling Device APPROVED for sale by Health Canada, Australian TGA and the European Union as a medical device.
