For texture improvement, collagen stimulation & acne scars. It is comfortable and ready for this…No Downtime…No Kidding!
Micropen is much safer and more effective in because of its unique vertical needle technology. It has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. Active ingredients are directly supplied to the deeper layers of the skin. Micropen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depths allows the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees and increases the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the absorption of products. On the other hand, it reduces pain and patient downtime.
Micropen can effectively treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Because of the vertical delivery, the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue. Micropen promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime.
How Does This Treatment Work?
The Micropen fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled collagen induction via fragmented delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis.
These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction. The Micropen’s controlled precision allows for the three phases of CIT mechanics of new collagen growth to occur. The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes culminating in the second of three phases of CIT mechanics where collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, GAG’s and angiogenesis occur. The last phase of CIT and the Micropen treatment results in the tissue remodeling process where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing product and because the process never involves heat or thermal energy or other chemicals or unnecessary trauma, the skin can quickly heal with almost zero downtime.
