You want to grow your practice, but that doesn’t mean every procedure or product that becomes available is a good fit for you and your patients. So what about microneedling? The latest advances in microneedling delivery, such as the SkinPen® device, have transformed this procedure. Considering these frequently asked questions will help you decide if SkinPen® microneedling will fit into your practice.
What kind of practice do you have?
Microneedling with SkinPen® is appropriate for plastic and cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and properly trained medical spa clinicians.
What kind of training is available?
SkinPen® is easy to use, but it still requires specialized training, Bellus Medical has you covered, with onsite and/or online initial instruction as well as ongoing advanced information and training.
What kind of patients do you serve?
Microneedling is ideal for reducing the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles, so it gives your practice another weapon in the fight against aging. Needle depth can be custom-tailored for each patient’s specific needs, so microneedling is also ideal for reducing the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. Microneedling with the SkinPen® is versatile and may be used on the body. It's also safe and effective for every skin type and color.
How much time does it take?
SkinPen® microneedling sessions can be very short, though they generally run between 30 and 60 minutes. That makes microneedling a good fit for your busy practice, and also for your patients’ busy personal schedules.
Will my patients like it?
Women and men are already singing the praises of microneedling. With SkinPen®, the procedure is not only fast, but it focuses on diminishing the look of your patients aging skin. The procedure may also be used with a topical numbing agent, so it’s virtually pain-free. With little to no downtime, skin improvement is visible right away and continues to improve gradually. It may take multiple sessions to achieve desired results.
How is SkinPen® so different?
SkinPen® is light and comfortable in the hand, wireless, and so very maneuverable. Batteries recharge quickly, so the device is always ready to use. Single-use, disposable needle cartridges ensure sterility and prolong the life of the device. Needle depth can be adjusted between 0.25mm and 2.0mm with the click of a button on the SkinPen® device.
In addition to the device itself, the SkinPen® difference comes from its holistic approach to skin rejuvenation. The Skinfuse® regimen of post-procedure skin care products has been scientifically formulated to supply needed nutrients to the skin post microneedling. The patient’s skin receives essential nutrients to stimulate natural healing, but no ingredients that could interfere with that process.
You may already have patients asking about microneedling. The SkinPen® procedure offers distinct opportunities to grow your practice while helping patients rejuvenate their skin.
