What is the Bella SkinPen Experience?

The Bella SkinPen is a hand-held device used in a microneedling treatment. There are many devices available today but the Bella SkinPen stands out for several reasons:

Hygienic. The needle head is disposed of after each use, reducing the risk of infection. At Self Care LA, we put a priority on our client’s health and well-being. The Bella SkinPen allows us to provide an extra measurement of care for you and your experience with us.

Precise Movements. The microneedling device is the shape of a long, thick pen. Its shape allows your skin care expert to move the device in precise movements, effectively treating the areas you are concerned about. These specific motions also diminish the likelihood of trauma to surrounding tissues, reducing your recovery time.

Personalized Treatment. The depth of the Bella SkinPen needles are adjustable from 2mm to 0.2mm, allowing your specialist to customize the treatment based on your specific needs and goals.

Quick application. The microneedling device provides rapid application and can create thousands of microlesions in one minute. This fast application allows for a quick, efficient appointment that will have you back to your regular activities in no time!

Applicable almost anywhere. The Bella SkinPen comes with different needle head sizes that enable your specialist to reach difficult areas. No matter where your scars, acne or skin imperfections, the Bella SkinPen will likely be able to reach them!

Microneedling procedures are effective at resurfacing the skin, reducing wrinkles, lines, and creases. The Bella SkinPen treatment will reduce these imperfections and improve the quality of your skin by boosting your collagen and elastin levels. Collagen and elastin are both building blocks of the skin. They contribute to the health and structure of the skin.

These elements will keep your skin firm and glowing. A Bella Skin treatment will quickly and effectively improve your appearance!

Personalized Skin Care Consultation

In your private meeting with one of our skin-care experts, you will get the opportunity to discuss the concerns you have regarding your skin and how the Bella microneedling treatment will help you achieve your aesthetic goal.

Your skin-care specialist will discuss the benefits of the Bella SkinPen treatment, the procedure, potential risks, and expected outcome. They will then examine your skin and ask about your past treatments, skin-care routine, allergies, and current medication regimen. This information will help them decide if the Bella treatment is ideal for you and your skin. They may offer an alternative solution that better addresses your concerns and will help you achieve your skin goal.

Together, you and your skin-care expert will develop a treatment plan that is healthy, safe and effective. We encourage our clients to ask lots of questions so they can be well-informed and confident in their procedure.

Your skin-care specialist will take the time to answer your questions and address any concerns. At the end of your treatment, your skin-care expert and you will schedule a date and time for your appointment. They will then tell you how to prepare for the treatment and recovery period.

How to Prepare

In anticipation of your treatment, you will want to clean the predetermined area and avoid putting any products or moisturizers on it. It is also important not to exercise the morning of your procedure as sweating may dehydrate your skin, causing irritations to develop in your microneedling treatment.

On the morning of your appointment, you will want to stay hydrated and wear comfortable clothing that will not apply pressure to the treatment area when being removed. For a positive experience, follow all the instructions given to you by your skin-care specialist.

SkinPen Procedure

Before your treatment begins, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin. Once the topical agent has taken effect and you are comfortable, your skin-care expert will begin your microneedling procedure.

Gentle circular movements will be performed with the Bella SkinPen. The tiny needles will rapidly apply micro-wounds over the treatment area. Once all of the predetermined areas have been treated, your skin-care specialist will cleanse and moisturize your skin. They will remind you of how to care for your skin in the following days and what to expect.

The complete session can take as little as half an hour, with additional time allowed for the numbing cream to set.

Recovery & Results

Your skin may be red and sensitive in the days following your treatment. These are common symptoms and will diminish as your skin heals. You will need to avoid strenuous activities and exercising for the first few days of your recovery because sweating will irritate the microlesions.

Direct sunlight will also need to be avoided as your skin heals. Once the initial healing has taken place we recommend you wear a high level of SPF to protect your skin as it will be sensitive to sunlight for a while after the treatment.

Do not apply any products other than the ones provided by your skin-care specialist. If your face was the area treated, a thin layer of makeup can be applied after the initial healing process.

You will notice improvements in your skin quality after four to six weeks. At this point, your skin will have generated a new layer that is smoother, tighter and firmer than the previous layer. You may need multiple microneedling treatments before you see your ideal outcome. Your skin-care expert and you will discuss your options and develop a plan that provides your best end-result.

These results are relatively long-lasting and will remain consistent with good skin-care practices.

What is PRP with Bella SkinPen Treatment?

PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a concentrated serum of the platelets found in your blood. This serum is natural, with no added foreign ingredients to cause an allergic reaction. The serum is made from your own blood to apply after the microlesions have been administered with the Bella SkinPen. PRP works to reduce your healing period by using the concentrated platelets to increase your skin’s growth time and work as an anti-inflammatory.

Platelets naturally help with healing in the body, so when they are concentrated and applied directly to the micro-wounds, they shorten your healing period and greatly improve the quality of your skin.

This procedure is very simple. Before your microneedling treatment begins, your skin care specialist will take a sample of your blood. The blood will then be prepared by separating the red blood cells from the platelet rich proteins. The serum will be prepared and ready by the time your microneedling treatment is complete. The PRP serum will be applied directly to your treated area and will soak into the tiny lesions, penetrating to the deep layer of the dermis. This treatment will help to heal and regenerate your skin quickly while also improving the long-term health of your skin!
