Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 04, 2013
SkinPen by Bellus Medical, a medical grade, state of the art micro-needling tool used to improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, is going to be featured this Friday, October 4th on The View, as part of Dr. Doris Day’s “Beauty Breakthroughs” segment on the latest in skin treatments.
“SkinPen meets a need in today’s aesthetic market for a treatment that delivers significant results with little or no downtime,” said Joe Proctor, President and CEO of Bellus Medical. “SkinPen can reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin,” added Proctor.
Micro-needling allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin, which automatically triggers new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. In addition, the mechanical creation of microscopic channels into the deep dermis allows for the temporary penetration of topicals normally not absorbed by the skin.
This allows micro-needling to be an effective treatment not only for scar revision and skin revitalization, but also opens the door for use in conjunction with other topical therapies.
“SkinPen takes this proven technique to the next level, allowing for the automated creation of thousands of microscopic channels into the skin in just seconds,” said Dr. Thomas M. Hitchcock, PhD and Scientific Advisor to SkinPen. “This is a huge improvement in treatment time over traditional micro-needling rollers where you would have to make dozens of passes over the skin to come close to the same coverage.”
The versatility of SkinPen, with its ability to easily change needle depths depending on what area of the face or body is in need of treatment, offers significant advantages to both patient and practitioner over traditional dermal rollers.
“One of the best features is the disposable, variable-depth needle cartridges, allowing repeated use and a variety of applications without having to worry about cross-contamination or damaged needles that can cause injury,” Dr. Hitchcock said. “On top of all this, micro-needling is not sensitive to any Fitzpatrick skin type, a truly color-blind treatment.”
The procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated, number of areas and the severity of damage on the skin. After one treatment, patients see marked improvement in scars, wrinkles, skin discoloration, stretch marks, or large pores.
