MicroNeedling with SkinPen
Microneedling is a popular way to address your skin’s signs of aging at the cellular level. Microneedling – also known as collagen induction therapy – comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in your skin. This triggers your body’s natural wound healing process and results in skin remodeling, including the formation of new collagen and elastin
In accordance with Genesis Lifestyle Medical’s philosophy of providing the safest, most effective procedures, we use the only FDA-cleared microneedling device – SkinPen. Make no mistake, all microneedling devices are not created equally. We follow protocols established by SkinPen in accordance with their FDA clearance to provide you the safest microneedling experience possible. Each treatment uses a single-use sterile needle cartridge and the entire device is covered with a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures. We also ensure that the depth of your treatment is precisely controlled for optimal effect without risking adverse effects
If you are looking for an effective way to improve your skin’s overall texture and appearance, then microneedling with SkinPen may be the perfect treatment for you. Call us at 801-281-0022 to schedule your free microneedling consultation.
