The MD Pen™ is used to perform mircodermal needling, a new, non ablative skin regeneration therapy. It is an innovative way to give a fresh look to your skin by encouraging the generation of new skin cells. This results in a more elastic epidermis, diminished scar tissue, and a more uniform complexion. It is suitable for multiples applications and skin types. The MD Pen™ delivers real results in less time and with less discomfort than more aggressive, high-energy treatments.
Some of the treatments that can lessen with the MD Pen includes acne, scars, stretch marks, photo-ageing, fine lines, hair loss/balding, uneven skin texture and complexion, and discoloration.
How does MD Pen help to improve the skins appearance?
MD Pen rapidly creates a pattern of mirco channels in the treatment area. These mirco channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. Mirco channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical grade topicals, like anti-aging serums and skin lighteners, when applied during or immediately after the procedure by a practitioner.
How long will it take to complete a treatment?
A full face and neck anti-aging treatment is normally completed within 20 to 40 minutes. Other skin condition treatment times will vary depending on the size and number of the area(s) being treated.
How many treatments should I have?
Depending on your treatment goals and your skin condition, you may decide to have a single treatment, or the practitioner may advise you to have a series of four to eight treatments spaced two to six weeks apart.
How will my skin feel after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment your skin may be sensitive to touch and appear red and flushed, similar to a moderate sunburn. Usually, within 4 to 6 hours, redness and sensitivity will diminish, and within 24 hours the mirco channels will feel healed. Normally, after 2 to 3 days, the redness and sensitivity will end, allowing a new, radiant complexion to shine through.
Is there any downtime?
MD Pen treatments do not cause the same trauma to the skin as laser or IPL treatments, so there is no downtime. It may cause only minimal discomfort. Sun sensitivity is also less of an issue.
Are there any potential side effects?
MD Pen mirco-needling does not involve injections; therefore, regardless of race or color, our patients have shown no adverse skin reactions or post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
How do I care for my skin afterwards?
Internal and external hydration of the skin is essential. Drink lots of water and carefully follow the skin care regimen prescribes by your practitioner.
