With the number of various skin treatments available out there, it can be a little confusing at times when there are multiple “pen” devices. So what is the difference between RevitaPen and SkinPen?
First of all, SkinPen is the brand name of one of the top skin needling devices. The reason for its popularity is because it has been FDA-cleared for all skin types and conditions. RevitaPen on the other hand is made by a skincare brand called Osmosis. RevitaPen does not utilize any needles, therefore is not in the category of a skin/micro needling device.
Instead of micro needles attached to the tip of a single-use-only cartridge, it has 100 nano-sized spheres at a height of only 0.015mm. Compare this to a skin/micro needling device which uses needles of adjustable heights. Our SkinPen can go anywhere from 0.25mm to 2.5mm in needle depth. For more information on SkinPen, click here.
The RevitaPen is very similar to SkinPen in the sense that it create pathways (nano-sized; smaller than micro) in the skin but at a more superficial level, just penetrating the upper-epidermis only. It is deep enough to improve delivery of the encapsulated ingredients of the Osmosis’s dermal facial infusion without causing inflammation or skin trauma.
