Micro-needling is done right.
SkinPen microneedling offers tailored solutions to address your individual skincare issues. SkinPen is FDA–cleared and raises microneedling to the next level.
This treatment is ideal for treating fine lines, enlarged pores, coarse and wrinkled skin texture, acne scars, and other blemishes.
Our bodies possess a self-healing mechanism that stimulates the creation of both collagen and elastin to facilitate the healing of wounds.
The SkinPen microneedling system activates this response by forming hundreds of temporary micro-channels in the skin, also known as fractionated wounds.
SkinPen encourages healing and regeneration without using heat or harsh chemicals. Lift years off of your appearance and expose your best skin with SkinPen at The Edge For Men in St. Louis.

Stimulate your body’s collagen production
The SkinPen stimulates collagen production by causing minor damage to the skin surface, which ignites a cascade of events, including fibroblast production of collagen.
The micro-wounds brought about by the SkinPen are then restored with new granulation cells that contain collagen proteins, leading to a more long-lasting result.
Penetrates the skin with growth factors
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is packed with more than 30 different growth factors that are designed to repair the effects of aging, scars, and pigment irregularities.
The SkinPen serves to penetrate the deep layers of the skin with these restorative factors. This enhances the development of collagen growth and increases the rate of cell regeneration.
How it works
SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound–healing process.
These punctures result in injury which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in a reduction of acne scars and wrinkles. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
What it Treats
Microneedling is a treatment designed to address acne and acne scarring, sun damage, wrinkles, loose skin, and enlarged pores.
SkinPen microneedling in St. Louis utilizes a process that encourages fibroblast cells to reactivate. The device is run along the surface of the skin, creating micro-wounds.
Due to this, the fibroblast cells begin to repair the skin in response, leading to an increase in collagen production. This provides lasting results.
Combine with PRP
For more positive results from your treatment, the inclusion of your own PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is recommended.
Combining PRP with SkinPen allows growth factors to reach the deeper layers of your skin, enhancing collagen growth and cell turnover effects.
In combination with SkinPen, PRF gives your complexion a radiant and youthful appearance with minimal downtime as the PRf accelerates the healing process.
