How Cosmetic Skin Treatment Can Do Wonders for You

If you want radiant glowing skin, DGMD has the treatment for you. The latest advances in microneedling, such as SkinPen® by Bellus Medical, have taken this popular procedure to the next level. To decide if it’s right for you, consider these frequently asked questions: 

How Does Microneedling Work? 

Microneedling devices cause controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. As the skin begins to heal, it goes through a three-phase wound repair process 

  1. Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers the immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.  
  2. Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix.  
  3. Remodeling. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound. 

Why Choose SkinPen for Microneedling? 

SkinPen is the first microneedling device in the world cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and older. It’s a versatile treatment that can be performed on patients year-round, regardless of skin type. 

 

How Well Does SkinPen Work? 

With as few as three treatments spaced 30 days apart, patients can improve their appearance and step out with confidence.

What do Patients Think of SkinPen? 

Patients are singing the praises of microneedling. With SkinPen, the procedure is not only fast, but also effective. In fact, 90% of clinical trial subjects would recommend SkinPen treatments to friends and family.1 The aesthetics industry likes SkinPen too: The device was recently awarded Innovation of the Year in the U.K. 

How Long Is the Typical Treatment? 

Most SkinPen procedures take about 30 minutes. That makes microneedling a good fit for busy patients.
