Collagen induction therapy with SkinPen™ is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device by Bellus Medical. Microneedling is a gentler anti-aging therapy than other forms of skin resurfacing, including lasers and IPLs. SkinPen™ works by stimulating the production of new collagen to renew and revitalize skin, but all done naturally. SkinPen™ is designed to combat years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation while overall enhancing the appearance of aging skin.
Extensive training by our aestheticians allows for controlled induction of the skin’s own self-repair process. Thousands of precise micro-injuries to the top most layer of dermis are made which spontaneously triggers the synthesis of new collagen without forming scar tissue. The variable depth (.25mm to 2.5mm) of SkinPen™ provides flexibility to create specific changes in multiple areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
The actual procedure typically takes 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of existing damage to the skin. The results are evident with little to no downtime for the patient. Under the careful supervision of Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ravi Somayazula, Body by Ravi Med Spa is proud to offer this revolutionary skin rejuvenation technology. Our certified aesthetician will formulate a comprehensive skin plan once your goals have been thoroughly discussed and a skin analysis has been performed. In some patients, peels and facials with SkinCeuticals products may also be recommended.
