What Acne Scars?
SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first micro-needling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration & Health Canada, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.
With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve the appearance of acne scarring allowing you to step out with more confidence.
Microneedling causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodelling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

The Wound Repair Process
Here are three phases to the wound repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation
Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation
The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling
The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Best of all, SkinPen works! Ninety per cent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
