SKIN PEN – MICRONEEDLING
Offered exclusively at our Albury clinic – Skin Pen Microneedling visibly transforms skin appearance and texture including such things as:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Skin tone
• Skin texture
• Acne scars
• Hyperpigmentation
• Stretch marks
• Sun damage
The SkinPen treatment works in three simple steps, designed to activate the skin’s natural healing process. Following each session, the skin begins to heal itself, looking more renewed and rejuvenated over time.  SkinPen is only used in professional settings and delivers dramatic results without the use of heat or chemicals.
How Does Microneedling Work?
SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
Why Should I Use it?
SkinPen is clinically proven to fight the appearance of neck wrinkles and reduce the appearance of acne scars. In fact, 90% of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the treatment to friends and family. It’s a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office with little to no downtime. As the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen sets the industry standard for safety.
What Does The Treatment Involve?
A plan for optimal results. Your Practitioner 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® Precision 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 labelling for detailed safety information. 
• An effective post-procedure protocol.Your provider might recommend an aftercare regimen.
