What is COSMOPen Microneedling?
COSMOPen is a state-of-the-art medical grade high speed microneedling system. It offers the same results as a fractional laser without the pain, downtime, or thermal damage. COSMOPen is a safe and effective alternative to laser treatment, and offers skin rejuvenation with minimal recovery time and a decreased risk of side effects. It can be used to treat acne and surgical scars—including keloids—as well as wrinkles, stretch marks, pore size, and signs of aging.
How does it work?
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally-invasive procedure in which tiny, sterile needles are used to puncture the skin to create controlled injuries in the form of thousands of microscopic channels. This activates a healing response in the skin leading to the formation of fibroblasts, release of growth factors, and ultimately the creation of new collagen and elastin. After a series of treatments, visible results include: skin firming, tightening, improvement in skin texture, and a reduction in wrinkles and scarring.
Am I a candidate?
Unlike fractional laser therapy, Microneedling does not cause thermal (heat) damage to the skin. As a result, there is less redness, swelling, and downtime, and a minimal risk of side effects. This makes it a suitable treatment for all skin types and skin colours, and is an excellent choice for those patients who are seeking results without downtime.
