What is the SkinPen?
As we age, collagen production begins to slow naturally, which causes the skin to lose elasticity and sag and wrinkles to form. In addition, as we age, there is increased sun and environmental pollution exposure, which can make the pores appear enlarged with age. These changes can prematurely age our skin. However, thanks to new technology in the SkinPen and PRP serum, you can turn back the hands of time and keep your youthful glow.
We utilize a tool called the SkinPen, which is the only device cleared by the FDA for Class II microneedling. SkinPen uses revolutionary technology to create micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production, enhancing the skin’s youthful appearance.
Essentially, these micro-injuries cause minor stress to the skin. However, the process boosts collagen as the skin heals, which also improves its texture and tone. The increase of collagen helps to fade the look of scars, plump the skin enough to diminish the appearance of fine lines, and evens out the tone and texture of the skin. Microneedling is commonly used on the face, and it can also be used to treat the neck and chest.
At Coastal, we combine the impressive effects of the SkinPen with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), which is a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation method that uses your growth factors to stimulate healing and repair.
