Created by Bellus Medical, SkinPen represents the world-class, gold standard in microneedling.

Three years of proactive work in design and development have given SkinPen sole possession of a new FDA classification in the microneedling category making the device truly unique.

How Does SkinPen Work?

The SkinPen microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cell damage. More specifically, SkinPen starts the three-phase wound-repair process:

  • Phase 1: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.
  • Phase 2: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells. Plus a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase 3: Remodeling. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound.

The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

SkinPen procedures typically take about 30 minutes, depending on the area treated, the type of skin condition, and each patient’s desired results. Multiple sessions may be recommended, about 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal outcomes.

The Benefits of SkinPen

Due to their non-invasive nature, SkinPen microneedling sessions usually require little to no downtime for patients and provide long-lasting, tangible results. Some of the other benefits patients can expect from SkinPen include:

  • Effective for all skin types, light to dark
  • Offers a comfortable experience with only mild sensation during treatment
  • Short procedure time
  • Ideal any time of the year
  • A natural and minimally invasive procedure
  • Clinically proven to be safe and effective
  • 90% of subjects in a clinical trial said they would recommend SkinPen treatment to friends and family

With SkinPen, patients will have minimal post-procedure effects. The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately after the procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, which usually resolves after a day. Overall, SkinPen microneedling treatment enhances the appearance of the skin by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening the skin, and giving a more plump appearance.

Dr Patel saved my vision. I cannot thank him enough! The first week of January I suffered a pretty horrific eye injury playing Dek Hockey. I was struck directly in my left eye by a hard plastic ball traveling at 30-40mph. I was immediately blind in my left eye as it filled with blood. I went to the ER at ORMC and Dr Patel was called when it was determined by CT scan that I had a 5mm tear on my eyeball on the back side. He arrived to the hospital very quickly after they called him. He took me to surgery and repaired my torn eyeball. Discharged me at 330am and saw me back at his office for a follow up 7hrs later. He referred me to a retina specialist for further evaluation. I’m happy to say that not only has my vision returned as of yesterday I’m 20/25 in an eye that I was blind in not too long ago. He’s amazing. Thank you Dr Patel for being there 24/7 for those in need of your services!!
