Bellus Medical’s SkinPen® microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cell damage. More specifically, SkinPen starts the three-phase wound-repair process:
- Phase 1: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.
- Phase 2: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells. Plus a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase 3: Remodeling. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound.
The results? Clinically proven improvements in the appearance of facial acne scars for people aged 22 and up.1
