Recently, RealSelf, an online community for sharing information on all things aesthetic, asked members to predict the top aesthetic trend for 2016. Polling over 500 board certified doctors, the top trend was clear—amongst the bounty of procedures, microneedling was most often mentioned. An active member and frequent RealSelf contributor, Dr. Robinson is pleased to perform microneedling with the help of SkinPen.

SkinPen, a form of microneedling, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a specially designed pen-like hand piece. With its tiny needles, SkinPen applies a series of controlled, microscopic micro channeling to the underlying layers of the skin. Encouraged to repair itself, the skin naturally produces new collagen and elastin. Increased collagen smooths and plumps the skin—leaving one with a healthier and younger looking complexion.

3 Reasons that Explain SkinPen’s Popularity

Great for all skin types: Unlike lasers and other aesthetic treatments, SkinPen can be used on all skin types. Even those with sensitive skin can benefit from SkinPen’s gentler treatment—working below the skin’s surface, SkinPen does not aggravate sensitive skin.

Long and lasting glow: Having stimulated your body’s own healing response system, the skin will continue to produce collagen and elastin long after your SkinPen treatment.

Betters product efficacy: Serving as micro-channels, SkinPen enables skin care products to work deep within the skin—increasing their effectiveness and encouraging the skin to better absorb the products’ nutrients.

Don’t take our word for it, schedule a consultation with Dr. Robinson to see the benefits of SkinPen and microneedling for yourself!
