Still in Seattle. Shocker, it hasn’t rained. It floods near my home in Lubbock, but we haven’t seen a drop in Seattle! I don’t mind though, I’m not a very big fan of the rain anyway. Plus, it’s so wonderful to be able to walk around and see beautiful produce and high-quality products surrounding you.
Then I get this text from my husband, and I almost die:
I have had the SkinPen on my mind during this trip. It’s really a neat gadget.
The SkinPen stimulates your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. If you come to BodyScapes Medical Spa be ready to say good-bye to acne and other scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmented lesions and large pores.
During a SkinPen procedure, one of our skilled, trained aestheticians will use the SkinPen device (which does resemble a writing instrument, hence the nickname “skin pen”) to create vertical, “micro-perforations” in your skin.
These microscopic holes are invisible to the naked eye, but because they are technically tiny wounds, your body reacts much as it would in response to a “real” injury.
Your skin’s natural healing systems are triggered, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. These two substances are vital for the creation of new skin. Since there is no true injury, the result will be stronger, thicker skin.
Over time and subsequent procedures, you will notice firmer, tighter, smoother skin. The appearance of your acne scars, stretch marks, and other imperfections will fade.
We can also use the SkinPen to deliver treatments like topical creams and gels, lotions and serums more effectively—using the same tiny openings created by the needles.
Instead of simply applying products like hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, hydrogenated collagen and peptides to the epidermis, we can boost their effectiveness by using them in conjunction with your SkinPen procedure. This allows these treatments to be absorbed much more deeply—and evenly—into your skin.
Best of all, there is little to no downtime involved in a Skin Pen procedure. Discomfort is minimal to none, the procedure is done in 30 minutes or less, and the most common effect is mild reddening for a day or two following the procedure.
You will begin to see more beautiful skin within two weeks and maximum results will be visible within six months.
I would be happy to discuss how a SkinPen procedure can benefit your skin. Please call me at
