Crown Aesthetics this week said it received FDA clearance for its SkinPen Precision device for treating wrinkles on the neck.
The SkinPen Precision microneedling technology is safe for use with a depth of up to 2.5mm on the neck, according to the company. It is intended to be used as a treatment to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck for Fitzpatrick skin types II-IV and improve facial acne scars in adults with all Fitzpatrick skin types aged 22 years and older.
In a single-center clinical study, the device demonstrated clinical improvement of dermal lines on the neck and high patient satisfaction at 1-month and 3-months post-treatment. The study also found that 94% of patients noticed an improvement in how their wrinkles looked in their treated area one month post-procedure and 88% of patients were satisfied with their SkinPen Precision treatment one month post-procedure.
“This new and expanded indication will completely change the way the industry has been treating wrinkles on the neck,” president Joe Proctor said in a news release.
“With SkinPen’s microneedling technology, we continue to set a higher standard in patient care as the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device. SkinPen has been clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars in patients ages 22 and up, and we are excited to now add the expanded indication to treat wrinkles on the neck.”
