COSMOPen is an advanced medical grade micro-needling system utilized to induce collagen formation offering an excellent non-surgical facial rejuvenation option. Micro-needling is also referred to as skin needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). This advance aesthetic technique is performed by puncturing the skin with mirco-sized sterile needles, which create micro channels, thereby stimulating the body to produce new tissue and collagen leading to tighter and more firm skin. This technique treats the deeper layers of the skin with minimal trauma and without thermal damage to the superficial layers of the skin, resulting in a faster recovery and optimal results. The COSMOPen is an excellent non-surgical skin tightening system that treats scars, fine lines/wrinkles, acne scars, depigmentation, and photo damage to the skin. The amount of skin damage or depth of wrinkles will determine the number of treatment sessions, which generally range from 5-8 treatment sessions with 1-2 weeks between treatments to optimize results. Prior to the procedure a topical aesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort during the procedure. Patients can expect some mild redness for 12-48 hours following the procedure with minimal to no discomfort. Initial results are typically seen after two treatments, more significant results are seen after 4-6 treatments, and you will continue to have collagen remolding between 6-12 months following the procedure. The COSMOPen procedure can be performed either in the office setting or in the operating room in combination with other surgical procedures.
