Bellus Medical SkinPen

Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, scars, and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. It also has a positive effect on hyperpigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, traumatic scars, and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance and glow to the skin. The procedure can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

What should I expect?

During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams, and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin.

Does it hurt?

Prior to your treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area.  You may feel the vibration of the pen, but very little if any discomfort.

What are some of the benefits?

  • Dramatically Improves Texture and Skin Tone
  • Affordable and Non-invasive
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Improves the appearance of Scars
  • Long lasting


Micro-Needling

To enhance the results and make them longer-lasting, we offer Micro-Needling  The Micro-Needling opens the skin, encouraging collagen production and facilitating the opening of microchannels. 

This treatment is good for all skin types.

Acne can be caused by several known factors. Hormones, stress, diet and other variables can lead to acne breakouts. Untreated or poorly managed acne can lead to scarring. The three most common types of acne scars are Ice pick scars, boxcar scars and rolling scars.

Acne-Scars

Ice Pick Scars

Ice Pick scars, being the most common, get their name from the actual formation of the scars and as the name suggests. They are shaped like the hole left from an ice pick.

The scars are deep and narrow, which makes it difficult for them to be filled up naturally with collagen and some are too deep to heal entirely. Ice pick scars are usually less than 2mm across and usually caused by inflamed comedones (blackheads) or acne vulgaris (whiteheads).

Boxcar Scars

Boxcar scars are similar to Ice Pick scars, however the Boxcar scars are wide and more rectangular with vertical edges. Boxcar scars are usually found on the temples and cheeks and they can be deep or shallow, but the majority of Boxcar scars are not as deep as Ice Pick scars.

Rolling Scars

Rolling scars are the least common of the three and they are usually shallow and wide.

Caused by damage under the surface of the skin, rolling scars are round and give the skin a rolling, wave-like appearance.

Fine lines and wrinkles are the often the first signs of aging.

Repeated muscle movement over time and sun exposure are the main contributing factors.  Other factors like smoking, stress, fair complexion and poor diet can also contribute to accelerated aging of the skin. Eventually, everyone has to confront the fact that fine lines wrinkles are inevitable.

Fortunately, There Is A Solution

With MicroPen, we can face the problem head-on and reduce fine lines, or we can treat healthy skin to prevent them from form as quickly.

Here’s How It Works

The production of collagen and elastin can continue up to 6 months which leads to newer, healthier skin. Fine lines are reduced as new skin replaces old. Repeating this process several times per year and combining it with a healthy skin care regimen will dramatically improve your skin health.
