Best dermatologist I've ever had....well taken care of...
Wrinkling, skin thinning, and sagging are caused by a lack of collagen, the skin’s most important structural protein. Collagen production starts to decline in our 30s, and once we reach our 50s, it slows to a crawl.
Collagen is an important substance in our skin because the more collagen you have, the firmer and tighter your skin will look. So, we’ve put together the two biggest collagen-boosting beauty treatments, which will enhance your collagen production synergistically!
Introducing Skinpen with Sculptra Boost, a combination of Microneedling and Sculptra!
Microneedling is a painless anti-aging treatment that pricks the skin with very fine needles, stimulating your body’s natural wound healing process to increase collagen production, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that reduces wrinkles and folds, adds volume to thinning skin, and restores definition to the face. Usually, Sculptra is injected into the skin’s deep layers, but with Skinpen with Sculptra Boost, Sculptra can be applied topically like a serum.
This technique works because microneedling creates thousands of invisible micro channels into your skin, and when Sculptra is applied topically, the micro-channels allow your skin to absorb the Sculptra like a sponge.
Applying Sculptra in this way also allows it to penetrate into the outermost layers of the skin, where it can improve the appearance of fine lines, increase hydration, and give your skin a gorgeous glow.
Skinpen with Sculptra Boost is also great for treating lines around the eyes and mouth, acne scars, and improving the appearance of crepey skin.
SkinPen® is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.
The microneedling process works by creating 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 three phases to the wound-repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: 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 III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
A plan for optimal results. Your physician may recommend a course of procedures based on your individual goals. Maintenance of your procedure might require multiple treatments.
A comfortable procedure. Based on your needs, your physician will likely apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area.
A short procedure time. The treatment will likely take about 30 minutes.
A mild sensation. Most patients report feeling only the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.
Minimal post-procedure effects. 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. Please see patient labeling for detailed safety information.
Soothing aftercare. Your clinician will provide Skinfuse® LIFT, a clean, non-cytotoxic hydrogel used to prevent the skin from drying out post-treatment.
An effective post-procedure protocol. Our team will recommend products and a treatment protocol that will help you achieve optimal results!
