Innopen Medical micro-needling anti-aging treatment
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a new treatment in regenerative aesthetic medicine. It is used for the treatment of fine lines and acne scars. Above all, it improves the skin’s overall appearance. You may have seen or heard of the “Vampire Facial”, and this is our version of that! This is a minimally invasive way to focus on natural anti-aging without toxins, fillers or surgery!
How the Treatment Works
The Dr. uses tiny needles during the procedure to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to stimulate Collagen and Elastin production. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles and less obvious marks and scars. The needles create superficial micro-channels in the skin. These channels help the skin absorb topical gels, creams, and serums more effectively.

Common Questions relating to our Innopen Treatments
What are the Benefits of Innopen Treatments?
The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Innopen also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation and on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
What areas of the body can I treat with Innopen?
We primarily use Innopen on the face, neck, decollete, and hands.
What does micro-needling feel like?
After topical anesthetics,the sensation feels like minimal pressure on the skin. The speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
How long does the Innopen procedure take?
The procedure takes about 60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated and the overall health of your skin.
What is the downtime?
Downtime is minimal as compared to its more invasive counterparts. You will experience redness surrounding the treatment areas immediately after. The redness will fade over the following several hours. Most redness will have subsided by 24 hours the procedure. Some patients may notice redness that continues a few days following treatment. Tinted moisturizer and foundation minimize the appearance of the lasting redness.
Most patients will 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 require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, we recommend for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. Moreover, patients with deep wrinkles, advanced aging, stretch marks, or acne scares, may require 6-8 sessions spanning over 6 weeks. All of this can be determined through talking with the doctor in person about your goals and what you are hoping to improve.
