The pen consists of a sterile head that allows for adjustment of the needle depth thus we can treat a variety of conditions in all skin zones be it the thinner areas under the eye or the more robust areas of the cheek.
Micro needling is also known as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is an aesthetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny sterile needles in order to induce production of cutaneous collagen ( skin collagen).
Medical Micro needling with the Cosmopen aka fractional micro needling has been shown to increase the remodeling of the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels in the skin thereby activating the body's wound healing cascade creating new and potentially stringer collagen which is reflected in the skin with a decrease in scars, fine lines and wrinkles. The process will also reduce the severity of inflammatory acne.
What is the principle of MicroNeedling?
The Cosmopen , a form of Collagen Induction therapy non ablative ( no skin loss) device that by creating sterile channels through the skin creating a non thermal injury to the dermis. This induces the body to create new tissue layers of elastin , collagen fibers and capillaries thus increasing blood flow and oxygen to the tissues. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus , ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines, blemishes and other aspects of sun damage.
Will Micro Needling help deliver rejuvenating serums to the skin?
Yes! The channels created will allow for delivery of antioxidants such as Vitamin C and rejuvenation serums. After your treatment we add a small amount of patient specific adjuvants that are massaged into the skin. These include anti-oxidants, pigment reducers and emollients. PRP ( platelet rich plasma ) and PRF ( platelet rich fibrin) can also be added which have been shown to significantly improve the results.
Remodeling of the dermal collagen from microneedeling
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles as well as softens scars.
Several sessions spaces 2 weeks to a month apart are required for optimal results.
Cosmopen therapy when coupled with PRP ( platelet rich plasma ) or PRF
( platelet rich Fibrin ) offer even greater results especially when performed under the eye.
