Microneedling with CosmoPen

Most people can probably think of a million things they’d rather do than poke their skin with a series of needles, but medical professionals are actually embracing this “microneedling” as a more comfortable way, believe it or not, of collagen induction therapy or CIT.  Such therapy stimulates collagen, a supportive protein in the skin, which “plumps / thickens” the skin, thereby reducing textural changes.  It has been used since the mid to late 1990s and may have evolved from Ancient Chinese Acupuncture and French “Nappage” treatments.
Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of dermatologic concerns, including (but not limited to):
  • facial rejuvenation
  • acne scars / keloids
  • fine lines / deep expression lines
  • stretch marks
  • hyperpigmentation / melasma
  • alopecia

We are now offering patients microneedling treatments with CosmoPen, a “state of the art, medical grade, and high speed” microneedling device that serves as an alternative to fractional laser, IPL, and chemical peels.  CosmoPen offers a microneedling experience for all skin types and is both a more comfortable and cost-effective means to beautiful skin with little to no downtime.  Depending on the condition being treated, patients may experience redness and / or swelling for only 12-48 hours post-procedure. While patients may begin to see results after the first or second treatment, the most significant results are generally seen after 4-6 treatments 2 weeks apart and may continue to be seen 6-12 months down the road.
