The micropen is all about swiftly and comfortably “needling” the skin so that it builds collagen in response and repairs itself! This new treatment tightens, lifts, minimizes pore size and helps break up melasma and other hyper pigmentation.
A pen-like device moves swiftly over your skin, briefly injecting tiny needles below the surface that cause the skin to “repair” itself from deep within. You will feel only like a small bit of sandpaper is being moved comfortably over the area.
Expect to be flushed for a few days, and very dry too. It will feel a bit like a sunburn. Special topical lotions will speed your recovery.
Micropen elite does all this, but adds special serums below the skin where they can be especially effective.
Avoid topical acids or Retin-A for five days before your treatment.
BEFORE, AFTER AND DURING TREATMENT
Allow about 30 to 40 minutes for your appointment. Your skin should be clean and make-up free for the treatment. Avoid alpha-hydroxyl or Retin-A products 12 hours prior to treatment. Micropen therapy is not advised if you have had prolonged sun exposure or sun burns to the treatment area 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. If you are prone to cold sores, take your prescribed medication prior to your appointment and continue use for 48 hours after treatment.
Immediate results can be seen after one treatment. However, a total of 5-6 treatments may be recommended for maximum results, allowing approximately 4-6 weeks between each treatment. Neocutis Bio-Serum/Bio-Restorative Serum with PSP is recommended post treatment to help heal the skin and to promote collagen stimulation.
