Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons worldwide are constantly searching for the most efficient, painless, and non-invasive procedures to turn back the clock. Now, The Meso-Pen shows promise in perfecting fine lines and skin texture and tone.
January 20, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is also known as dermal rolling or micro-needling. CIT is a process to create invisible, vertical, micro-perforations into the epidermis and dermis. The body responds by healing itself in a natural way from the inside out. As a result, collagen and elastin are produced which leads to skin tightening and rejuvenation.
CIT can be used to address fine lines, wrinkles, hypertrophic scars, acne scars, stretch marks and skin texture. The procedure is also used to treat sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
The Mesopen® is the only patented micro-needling pen and cartridge that is both cleared as an FDA Class I Medical Device and with CE Mark. The Mesopen® uses 12 precisely spaced, sterile micro-needles to create vertical, micro-perforations into the epidermis and dermis.
The speed and depth of the perforations are controlled by the operator. The Mesopen can be used on all skin types and on all areas of the face, neck and body.
The Mesopen was just launched and is already receiving many positive reviews. Patients love the fact that it can be used on all skin types, and there is very little downtime. Mild redness occurs just after the treatment but is usually resolved by the next day.
Many plastic surgeons and physicians themselves are fans of microneedling. According to Sylvia Silvestri, an Registered Nurse in Beverly Hills who has been treating patients with CIT, or collagen induction therapy... "It is the only treatment that the doctors ask me to do on them! My patients skin looks brighter, tighter, and have improved skin tone and texture after just one treatment."
