SkinPen Microneedling Treatment in San Diego
Dr. William Umansky and Dr. Jeffrey Umansky are excited to offer a revolutionary skincare treatment at Umansky Plastic Surgery and U Laser MedSpa – San Diego: SkinPen Microneedling Treatment.
Transform your skin with microneedling here in San Diego. We are proud to offer Bellus Medical’s SkinPen, the only FDA-cleared microneedling device. Clinically proven to safely and effectively treat deep or pitted facial acne scars in as few as three treatments scheduled a month apart, with improvements continuing to appear over the next 6 months, the SkinPen can also be used to treat and improve the appearance of fine lines, pore size and overall skin tone and texture, and can be used across the face and body.
Microneedling (Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) involves the use of medical grade micro needles, which are used to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This stimulates the skin’s own healing response in a highly targeted manner, kick starting the production of new collagen and elastin in the deeper dermal layers of the face. As the skin heals, the appearance and quality of your skin will be greatly improved, looking firmer and smoother.
With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance – and step out with confidence. Improvements will continue to develop for up to six months after your last treatment.
What Are The Benefits?
SkinPen microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Because the micro-injuries trigger the body’s own natural healing process, the treatment will not trigger any allergic responses. Compared to other microneedling devices, SkinPen offers unbeatable safety, minimizing cellular damage while still inducing collagen production. A SkinPen microneedling treatment is 100% natural, and involves less downtime than other microneedling devices while also delivering outstanding results. While some patients may notice a little flaking of dead skin cells a day or two after treatment, there will not be any significant peeling.
These are some of the conditions that can be improved through medical-grade microneedling:
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose and lax skin
- Large pores
- Surgical scars
- Hair loss
A SkinPen treatment is inexpensive compared to laser treatments and can be used anywhere on the body to help with scars, age-spots and aging skin. Our highly competitive pricing allows our patients to reap the long lasting benefits of a SkinPen microneedling procedure at great value. Medical grade microneedling treatments transform the structure of the skin from the inside out, making it an excellent complement to fillers and other injectables as well.
After two weeks of receiving a SkinPen Treatment, most patients notice:
- Forehead lines are dramatically softened
- Pigmentation is significantly lighter and overall skin tone is more even
- A reduction in pore size
- Acne scars become less visible
- Improved appearance of the fine lines around the eyes
- Softened lines around the mouth area
- Tightened jaw line and improved lines and wrinkles in the neck area
