SkinPen® Microneedling

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.

We understand your multiple concerns and anxieties, and we want to assure you that as a medical practice, we are here for you.

Our office is open and ready to serve you. We have restarted performing elective surgeries at an Ambulatory Surgery Center, and in office elective surgical procedures will resume after May 8th. In order to decrease viral spread and to minimize utilization of medical supplies during this time of need, we have implemented a strict screening protocol. As far as non-surgical procedures, we are slowly rolling out these procedures. We are currently offering Botox and other non-surgical in office procedures, such as miraDry and Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling. We tentatively will be restarting filler treatments on May 18th. All staff and all patients are required to wear masks at all times. We are also not allowing any additional guests at this time. We are taking extra time and extra steps to make sure all contact surfaces, such as door handles and counter tops, are cleaned around the clock with appropriate cleaning solutions. Your safety had always been, and will continue to be, of utmost importance.

Dr. Ravi Somayazula and Dr. Swapna Gopathi, both board certified physicians, will continue to offer both complimentary virtual consultations via a HIPAA compliant and secure platform and in person office consultations. We are happy to provide these two options so that you can choose the option that is most comfortable for you.
