MarSha MedSpa is the only Medical Spa in Southeastern Wake County, Johnston County and Eastern NC to be offering the SkinPen Treatment!
WHAT IS SKINPEN?
SkinPen is the first FDA approved microneedling device. It uses ‘collagen induction therapy’ to treat melasma – also known as skin discoloration – as well as acne and surgical scars.
With as little as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, clients can experience noticeable improvement in the appearance of their skin. Procedures take about 30 minutes, depending on the area treated and the desired results. Due to their non-invasive nature, microneedling sessions usually require little downtime for patients.
HOW MICRONEEDLING WORKS
SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This results in effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA- setting industry safety standards
Works for all skin types – dark to light.
Most procedures take about 30 minutes, and results can be seen in as few as three treatments.
Microneedling procedures tend to cost less than alternatives. (The cost varies depending on the size and number of treatment areas).
WILL IT WORK FOR ME?
Unlike most alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically shown to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark. Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh laser treatments.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. The device is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures. Safety measures like these are part of the reason SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT POST-PROCEDURE?
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.
