Microneedling in Bellevue has been gaining in popularity as more patients begin to understand the benefits it has on the skin. Because of this, many microneedling devices are entering the market, but the SkinPen is the only FDA-approved device so far. Keep reading to learn what sets the SkinPen apart!

What is the SkinPen® Microneedling Device?

The SkinPen is a handheld microneedling device that contains many tiny needles. In case you’re new to the microneedling world, the treatment involves creating tiny puncture wounds in the skin, stimulating the body’s healing process. Blood flow is increased to the area and the formation of new collagen and elastin is developed, resulting in stronger, healthier skin with reduced lines and wrinkles, acne marks, and other blemishes.

The SkinPen® Difference

There are many microneedling devices on the market from rollers to smaller at-home devices, but only the SkinPen has been approved by the FDA. A number of risks have been uncovered involving the use of non-FDA-approved devices. Because the needles of the device are penetrating the skin, it is and should be considered a class II medical device. The SkinPen is the only device that has been verified as using sterile, straight needles, with precise depth control. Other non-approved devices have shown to have hooked or jagged needles, making them less effective.
