Beautify Your Skin with COSMOPen Micro-Needling
NEW! Add platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for enhanced anti-aging benefits and faster results
Perfect skin may be difficult to come by, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have your best skin ever. COSMOPen is a new, medical-grade micro-needling system that provides results similar to fractional laser resurfacing—without the downtime, cost, or discomfort.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling, also referred to as skin needling or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive non-surgical treatment that utilizes a small device housing incredibly fine needles. During a micro-needling treatment, the skin is punctured with these tiny needles to create a controlled “micro injury.” This effectively triggers your body’s natural healing response, prompting an increased production of collagen and elastin in the area. This improves firmness and texture of the skin, minimizes blemishes, and reduces the appearance of scars without removing the top layer of skin.
The COSMOPen Difference
COSMOPen is a high-speed, powered micro-needling device that precisely and gently creates a non-thermal trauma just underneath the skin’s surface. This not only forms new tissue with elastin and collagen fibers, it also creates new capillaries which improve blood supply. This causes the skin to plump, thicken, and tighten, effectively improving the appearance of scars, fine lines, and uneven skin texture.
COSMOPen‘s adjustable speed and depth allow for a completely customized treatment with twelve 32-gauge needles. The controlled punctures are delivered at a 90 degree angle, avoiding common risks of other devices, such tearing or infection. The device was designed to provide very precise treatment and can be used virtually anywhere on the body. Patients who have multiple treatments may see results comparable to laser skin resurfacing.
What Does COSMOPen Treat?
Treatment with COSMOPen alone can be beneficial, though many patients benefit from the combination of micro-needling plus the application of a topical solution. Used in conjunction with COSMOPen, these solutions or biological materials can be delivered into the dermis for the most benefit.
COSMOPen is a great solution for:
- Visible signs of aging
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring
- Surgical scarring (including keloid scars)
- Stretch marks
- Reducing pore size
- Male pattern baldness
In addition to treating specific skin concerns, COSMOPen will improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
Enhance your COSMOPen treatment with platelet-rich plasma, and make it a PRP Facial!
Microneedling and PRP are the perfect pair! Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP contains an ultra-high concentration of molecules known as growth factors that your body needs both to replace damaged skin cells with healthy, new cells and to make new collagen and elastin.
We take a small blood sample from your arm, spin it to extract the PRP, and then apply it in a thin layer over the skin in the area receiving microneedling, just before treatment. The COSMOPen then pushes the PRP down into the skin as it works, supplying the treated area with extra growth factors, helping your skin heal more quickly and become even smoother, firmer, and more youthful in an appearance vs. microneedling alone.
Adding PRP to your microneedling treatment takes only about 15 additional minutes, and because your own blood is the only “ingredient” used, there is no risk of allergic reaction and the effects are 100% natural.
What to Expect from Treatment with COSMOPen
After an evaluation of your skin to determine if COSMOPen is the right fit for your concerns, we will tune the device settings to your needs, with needle depth and speed adjusted accordingly. We will thoroughly cleanse the treatment area before beginning, minimizing the risk of infection and allowing us to have a clear view of your skin. During treatment, you may experience very slight discomfort, but most patients report that pain is minimal.
Immediately after your treatment, we will moisturize and hydrate the skin to promote healing and nourishment. You may feel like you have a slight sunburn, but this sensation should improve quickly, as will any redness—expect your skin to be slightly pink for around a day or so. Most patients return to work the following day, and makeup may be worn at this point.
