SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is the first microneedling device in the world cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), clinically shown to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.
With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence. It’s a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office with little downtime.
SkinPen® creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage. This, in turn, causes the production of collagen and elastin. The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
SkinPen® is clinically shown to reduce the appearance of acne scars. In fact, 90% of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the treatment to friends and family. It is also used to improve fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
As the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen sets the industry standard for safety. Unlike most alternatives, SkinPen® has been clinically shown to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark. Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh chemical peels. In addition, when you properly space treatments the procedures can be administered year-round.
SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen® is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination between procedures. Safety measures like these are part of the reason SkinPen® is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA.
Once the procedure is completed the skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over time without any further complications.
