Resurface and restore your natural beauty with the revolutionary SkinPen® for microneedling

Like true artists, The Nest Day Spa & Aesthetic Center professionals in Russell, Kentucky, see your face as a canvas. We use the latest technologies and products, like SkinPen® microneedling, to beautify the skin’s texture, surface, and tone. In doing so, we restore your natural beauty and resolve many common signs of aging and environmental damage. These “treatable” conditions include: 

  • Fine lines
  • Sun or UV damage
  • Big, visible pores 
  • Uneven skin tone 
  • Hyperpigmentation or brown spots
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles
  • Lines, creases, and folds on the neck 

Many patients love microneedling procedures because this category of cosmetic therapy triggers the body’s natural healing process and the beneficial production of fresh collagen. This natural protein is responsible for the skin’s firmness and plump appearance; however, collagen production naturally falls off as we age. 

SkinPen® is the first device of its kind to be cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating facial acne scars among patients aged 22 and older, and it is also an appropriate treatment for the myriad other conditions listed above. So, it presents an exceptionally versatile and revolutionary approach to treating individuals with scarring from past acne outbreaks, surgical procedures, and other injuries to the skin – in addition to signs of aging and sun damage. 

Due to many built-in safety and quality controls, the SkinPen® is also designed to prevent potential concerns such as double usage or cross-contamination and to ensure a precise treatment that also helps to minimize concerns over “drag” from the device and possible damage to the skin. In fact, the SkinPen’s medical-grade needles and ability to precisely adjust the needle depth all support optimal treatment outcomes and the best possible experience with microneedling at our medical spa.

So, think of SkinPen® for scars and other concerns as offering all of the wonderful aspects of microneedling without the risks posed by devices that:

A. haven’t been validated to this degree for safety or

B. feature needles not classified as “medical-grade” 

The micro-injuries or controlled channels, precisely and gently created by our skillful application of the SkinPen® device, stimulate beneficial wound healing. Accordingly, collagen is produced to “fill in” those tiny, controlled wounds. Since many acne scars are the result of insufficient collagen production after an acne outbreak, SkinPen® addresses the root cause of scarring to “lift” depressed areas or pits as effortlessly as it resolves folds and other surface depressions caused by a loss of elasticity and firmness with time. 

Treatment is safe for all skin types, only requires about 30 minutes, and is tolerated well with a topical numbing product like lidocaine. Afterward, the skin may be dry, pink, or red. Healing can be further helped with specialized aftercare products, such as the AnteAGE Growth Factor Serum, EZPRF, or AnteAge Exosomes. 

The Nest Day Spa & Aesthetic Center may recommend a bundled package of three to four treatment sessions for best results. Call our Russell, KY office today at (606) 388-2399 for more information.
