SkinPen Micro-Needling Can Reverse the Signs of Aging and Repair Damaged Skin
SkinPen® is a micro-needling technology used to rejuvenate the skin by treating minor acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and age spots. Dr. Joseph Galitzin believes in taking a holistic approach to skincare to bring out the best in our patients and create natural-looking, healthy results. At Skin Care at 5th Ave in Peachtree City, GA, this minimally invasive skincare treatment creates tiny punctures on the skin’s surface at varying levels of penetration to stimulate collagen and elastin production below the skin. As the skin heals and reproduces healthy tissue, it reduces cosmetic concerns and refreshes your overall appearance.
The SkinPen is a handheld device that can help heal damaged skin.

What is the SkinPen?
The SkinPen is an innovative handheld device used for performing micro-needling. During the procedure, the SkinPen pricks the surface of the skin and uses the body’s natural ability to heal itself to reverse the signs of aging and repair damaged skin.
The SkinPen pricks the surface of the skin and uses the body’s natural ability to heal itself to reverse the signs of aging and repair damaged skin.
Within the device is a sterile cartridge containing 12 microscopic needles powered by AOVNTM technology, designed to motorize the pen at a high rate. Once the needles prick the skin, they instantly stimulate collagen production below the surface. Compared to traditional manual micro-needling, SkinPen technology allows Dr. Galitzin to select the best setting for your unique needs and deliver faster treatment with better precision.
The overall treatment can generally be completed in about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size and amount of areas being treated. As the pen glides along the surface of your skin, you will feel a slight tingling sensation much like sandpaper rubbing against your skin.
How Soon Can You See Results?
For the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, you may experience some slight redness and skin sensitivity. But almost immediately you will notice a smoother texture and healthier glow that will only continue to improve over the next two to three months. To help achieve and maintain desired results, Dr. Galitzin can provide follow-up sessions every six to eight weeks.
