SkinPen Precision System Microneedling

The concept of microneedling for facial rejuvenation, also known as collagen induction therapy, is not a new technique. In fact, microneedling was first described in the 1950’s by the French physician, Michael Pistor, who advocated for the procedure to increase collagen and elastin, or substances in the skin that improve the youthfulness of the skin. The technique is minimally invasive and painless, using tiny needles to penetrate the top layer of skin hundreds of times in order to wound the skin and trigger the healing process. The precise small needle punctures in the skin induce your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, or the building blocks of youthful and rejuvenated skin. Collagen and elastin are important because they are proteins in the skin that provide structure, support, and strength. These are all key components of youthful skin and attributes that we lose as we age, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.

The microchannels that are created are also beneficial because they allow the penetration of topical skin products such as growth factor serums and or when microneedling is combined with plasma rich protein (PRP).

The SkinPen precision system is the only FDA cleared device for microneedling in the US and is the only microneedling device used at the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago.
