The pen depth is adjusted based on the treatment area and your needs The Pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. The Pen will have a vertical motion to a preassigned depth.
What does it feel like? It will feel like a light sandpaper being moved across the skin Some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort The soothing gel applied also makes the treatment tolerable.
What is the downtime? Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days, some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
When will I see the results? Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need? Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals
