The CosmoPen provides a stunning way to rejuvenate your skin naturally through a minimally invasive treatment called Microneedling (or collagen induction therapy). The CosmoPen activates the natural restorative processes of the skin to produce firmer, clearer, brighter, and happier skin.
CosmoPen microneedling combined with our growth factors, AQ Recovery Serum, has greatly improved our clinical outcomes versus traditional microneedling. We see better results using the Recovery Serum because it enhances the skin’s natural process of regeneration by promoting collagen production, supporting healthy circulation, and encouraging cellular renewal. The serum is ideal when paired with microneedling.
How does it work?
We use a precise, gentle device called the CosmoPen to create tiny micro channels in the skin. This triggers the body to create new tissue layers of collagen and elastin fibers, as well as new capillaries for improved blood supply that imparts a notable glow to treated areas. The skin plumps and thickens in response, reducing fine lines, scars and other textural changes . The micro channels created then allow for precise delivery of concentrated growth factors and hyaluronic acid to the skin which further plump and hydrate the skin, improving your results!
What does CosmoPen treat?
CosmoPen has the ability to be used for multiple skin corrections. At Expert Aesthetix, we use microneedling to treat the following:
- Prevent signs of again
- Correct fine lines
- Reduce acne scarring
- Maintain results from deep laser peels or facial surgery
- Decrease pore size
- Smooth uneven skin tone
- Diminish stretch marks
Typically you’ll see improved texture and firmness, reduced appearance of wrinkles, scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
What can I expect during treatment?
While the CosmoPen does use tiny needles, the actual sensation is more similar to sandpaper scratching your skin than a single injection. There is actually very little discomfort during the procedure. To begin, we will cleanse and apply a topical numbing agent to the skin 30 minutes prior to your treatment. We will then apply the hyaluronic acid gel to the skin and the gel will be gently microneedled into the skin. While the treatment takes just about 30 minutes, at Expert Aesthetix, we designate an hour for your appointment to accommodate topical numbing.
When can I expect to see results?
Our patients typically will see some immediate results, but will start to see actual results several days to a few weeks post treatment. Even more results will be noticed up to 6 months later.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends on your desired results and personalized treatment plan. Typically, at Expert Aesthetix, we recommend 3-5 CosmoPen treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results. You can maintain results with a treatment every 3 months.
