Microneedling creates microscopic openings in the surface of the skin, causing the tissue to develop new collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, firmer skin, and helping with hyper pigmentation, sun damage, acne scars, large pores, rough skin, and dull skin.
How SkinPen® Micro-Needling Treatments Work
Our bodies have a natural healing system that allows repair of injury by stimulating production of both collagen and elastin. With the micro-needling system, SkinPen® initiates this response by creating hundreds of transient micro channels into the skin, called fractionated injuries. Without the use of heat energy or cutting of the skin, SkinPen® is able to help promote healing and regeneration mechanically.
ACHIEVING BEST RESULTS
In order to achieve best results, typically three to six treatments are recommended. Although, the patient may see results in their first few sessions. Depending on the area and skin type being treated, each treatment is typically performed four to six weeks apart. The downtime of this treatment with the SkinPen® is minimal making it a convenient alternative to traditional facial peels and laser treatments that may take several days to recover.
Check out some of the benefits of SkinPen®'s Unique Approach to Skin Rejuvenation.
Transient microchannels promote skin healing and rejuvenation naturally and effectively
Safe to perform for all skin types, no risk of fibrosis
Less invasive means to promote collagen formation without the use of more aggressive options such as thermal techniques and surgically excising skin tissue, and with scar-free healing
Minimal downtime, minimal to no peeling post-treatment
What is MINT™ PDO & Is It Safe?MINT™ is an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) barbed suture indicated for use in soft tissue approximation. With a decade worth of safety track record in surgery, PDO is a safe raw material that has been used for orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. As a safe raw material that is completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis, PDO causes minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma. Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of clinical studies for its efficacy and safety and is the first and only PDO suture in the US market to have received two FDA clearances.
Is MINT™ FDA Cleared?In 2013, MINT™ received 510(k) clearance from the FDA as a Class II medical device, by demonstrating that the device to be marketed is safe and effective. MINT™ received global registrations for lifting indication from seven countries, such as the Korea MFDS, Europe CE, and China CFDA, to assure its excellent technological capabilities and reliable safety. In 2020, MINT™ became the only PDO suture in the US market to have received dual FDA clearances and is the only device of its kind to receive clearance for a lifting indication for nasolabial fold depth reduction.
How Does It Work?MINT™ PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia nor big incisions for your patients. There are tiny barbs strategically placed and molded all around the thread. Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look. Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO (polydioxanone) can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.
How is MINT™ Different From Cut Threads?Unlike conventional sutures that cut the barbs from the integral core of the thread, MINT™ is manufactured through an innovative patented technology where the barbs are press-molded on the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity. The 360 degrees of helically positioned barbs are designed to maximize tensile and anchoring strength in order to securely anchor onto the 3D structure of the soft tissue for effective and powerful approximation.
