Skin Pen vs. Laser

The most effective treatment for anti-aging is the stimulation of your body’s natural collagen production. Both the SkinPen, which is a microneedling device, and the 1540 laser, which is a fractional resurfacing device, work together to promote the development of collagen on a cellular level. The SkinPen works by creating controlled “micro-trauma” to the tissues. This signals inflammatory markers, which in turn stimulates collagen production. The 1540 laser works by creating controlled thermal energy, which also promotes collagen growth. Both mechanisms are using the “shock factor” against the skin, resulting in collagen genesis. It is important to combine different “shock factor” mechanisms such as these to prevent the skin from reaching a plateau in which it no longer reacts to treatments. Therefore, the concomitant use of both the SkinPen and the 1540 laser will provide the most optimal cosmetic benefits for skin resurfacing and textural irregularities.
