FAQ

What is SkinPen®?2024-05-27T15:43:53+00:00

The SkinPen® Precision system by Crown Aesthetics is a microneedling
device intended to be used as a treatment to improve the appearance of
wrinkles, stretchmarks, hyper & hypo pigmentation, facial acne & surgical
scars. The simple procedure activates your body’s natural skin-healing power
to increase collagen and elastin so your skin returns to a healthier looking
youthful appearance.
It is the first FDA- approved micro needling device in the world!
SkinPen® is trusted by leading dermatologists, aestheticians, and other
skincare professionals.

How does the SkinPen® work?2024-05-27T15:45:35+00:00

The SkinPen® treatment works by following 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.
Best of all, SkinPen doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are
natural and safe for all skin tones and types.
1.Inflammation
SkinPen®’s microneedles pierce the skin, at a rate of 1600 per second,
triggering your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris,
increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.
2.Proliferation
The micro-wounds created by SkinPen® are rebuilt with new granulation
cells that include collagen proteins. Additionally, a new network of blood
vessels develops.
3.Remodelling
Remodelling the wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood
vessels which are comprised of rich collagen and elastin proteins. These
proteins improve skin youthfulness.

Why is collagen so important in medical aesthetics and skin rejuvenation?2024-05-27T15:46:50+00:00

Collagen and elastin are the essential protein fibres in the skin that give
support and elasticity.
As we age, those fibres break down leading to fine lines, wrinkles, sagging
sin and large pores.
Regenerating collagen and elastin can also help in getting a more youthful
appearance overall!
Collagen plays a key role in scars, such as those formed from acne or
surgery. Improper signals in pigmentation lead to dyschromia (hyper or hypo
-pigmentation conditions). Skin remodelling can have an important role in
the improvement and appearance of these conditions.

What can I expect during my treatment?2024-05-27T15:47:45+00:00

1.Light Numbing: Topical anaesthetic is applied to assure maximum
comfort during the treatment.
2.Simply treat: SkinPen® Precision creates thousands of controlled
microchannels in the skin to elicit your body’s natural wound healing
cascade.
This healing process works at the site of treatment to remodel the tissue
resulting in new collagen and elastin to give your skin a younger firmer and
radiant appearance.
3.Hydrate to Protect: The LIFT hydrogel is applied to the treatment area to
help reduce friction for easy gliding and comfort.

How often will I need to have my treatment & how many treatments will I need?2024-05-27T15:48:35+00:00

Results are often seen after just one treatment, 3-6 treatments 4-6 weeks
apart are usually required to achieve the full desired results.
Your provider may recommend a course of procedures based on your
individual goals. Maintenance of your procedure might require multiple
treatments.

What is the downtime after my SkinPen® treatment?2024-05-27T15:49:14+00:00

The SkinPen® microneedling treatment typically causes mild swelling,
peeling, flaking and redness. It is similar to that of sunburn with most of the
swelling and redness gone within 3-4 days of treatment.

Will it work for me?2024-05-27T15:50:31+00:00

Unlike some alternatives, SkinPen® has been clinically proven to be effective
for women and men with all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I – VI.
Likewise, unlike lasers or chemical peels that can damage skin over the long
term, SkinPen® treatments, when properly spaced and overseen by a
physician, can be used for years.

Is it safe?2024-05-27T15:51:03+00:00

Yes, by design. SkinPen®’s patented – and single-use – sterile needle
cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen® is also surrounded by a
custom-designed BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross
contamination between procedures. That’s part of the reason SkinPen® by
Crown Aesthetics is the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device.

Is SkinPen® microneedling painful?2024-05-27T15:51:45+00:00

To help reduce discomfort during your treatment, a topical numbing cream
is applied to the area for treatment. While you may still feel pressure or a
sensation similar to scratching during your procedure, you shouldn’t feel any
actual pain.

Who should not use it?2024-05-27T15:52:42+00:00

SkinPen® should not be used on patients who have active skin cancer in the
treatment area(s); open wounds, sores, or irritated skin in the treatment
area(s); an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetics; a hemorrhagic (bleeding)
disorder or hemostatic (bleeding) dysfunction; are pregnant or nursing; or
are currently taking drugs with the ingredient isotretinoin (such as
Accutane). Talk to your doctor to see if this treatment is right for you.

Are the results from SkinPen® Microneedling permanent?2024-05-27T15:53:51+00:00

The results will definitely last several months. In some cases, the results can
be permanent. How long the results last depends on a number of factors,
including the severity of your concern, the type of concern you have and how
well you care for your skin after treatment.
