Skin Rejuvenation Using Micro-Needling
Micro-needling (collagen induction therapy) using the ACS-Pen (Advance Cell Stimulation)
offered by Mederm Esthetics & Laser is a gentle, minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate
the skin. The ACS-Pen is a state-of-the-art European dermo-cosmetic device and first of its kind
manufactured in Germany.
The ACS-Pen is the result of 30 years of scientific research, advanced technology, precision
engineering, scientific clinical studies and practical use combined with numerous published
reports showing impressive results in skin physiology. Nordic Selfcare Institute products are
exclusively distributed in Canada and Mederm Esthetics & Laser is proud to be among their supporters.
The device is unique and distinguishes itself from other needling products. It incorporates the
precision Linear Needle Module design and uses fine needles to created minuscule punctures in
the top layer of the skin. This process sets up a trigger for the body to create healthy, new
This advanced design allows practitioners a more accurate and intensive control for medical skin
needling without the use of topical anesthetics. The ACS-Pen results in real improvement you
can see and feel with maximum skin improvement. Because it is the only sterile single-user
Linear Needle Module with 10 micro needles, you’ll experience painless minimal tissue damage
and gain a multitude of benefits to help restore your skin to its youthful glow.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
With repeated treatments, you get increasing benefits such as improvement in skin thickness and
a more transparent epidermis, reduced wrinkles and fine lines for a more youthful appearance.
How Does the ACS-Pen Work?
It is proven to stimulate both neo-collagenases and neo-angiogenesis. This combination creates a
more youthful, firmer and healthier-looking skin. Because it is the only LNM, it guarantees a
precise number of micro-needling for a quicker, safer healing process without any tearing. It
promotes the stimulation of new healthy tissue growth.
What Should I Expect?
There are four major phases created by physiological wound response using the ACS-Pen.
- Day 1-3. An inflammatory response that promotes chemotaxis and proliferation of fibroblast. Debris and bacteria are removed by the Platelets during this cell migration. It is in the first phase the next proliferation is stimulated.
- Day 3-5. The proliferation continues and multiplies for the new fibroblasts, monocytes and keratinocytes. During this phase, new collagen is laid down and new tissue creation is formed.
- Days 5-20. Next fibrotic response occurs and growth factors are released with fibroblasts releasing more new collagen.
- 28 days-1 year. New, healthy skin occurs during the final maturation stage. An 80% of mature collagen and new tissue matrix is formed and stiffens for strength and youthfulness.
What Main Benefits Will I See?
You will see a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles in addition to better tone and tightening of
sagging skin. Scars and stretch marks will diminish. You’ll also notice a reduction in enlarged
pores plus a lifting and smoothing out effect on sun-damaged skin. An overall improvement on
skin pigmentation will be evident for a younger, smoother and vibrant appearance.
