You may be aware of the buzz surrounding microneedling and the FDA as of late. One of the most serious issues is that of transmission of blood-borne diseases from one person to another. Microneedling is not currently regulated by the FDA, but the FDA did issue a statement on it to define what standards devices need to meet in order to maintain patient safety.

The majority of microneedling devices used in the medspa setting are designed to break the skin in order to stimulate new tissue healing, resulting in a more youthful look. They can also smooth wrinkles, scars and cellulite. However, when a device is designed for use on different people, it must be able to be cleaned and not transmit tissue or blood from one person to another. You shouldn’t have to think or worry about this when you come in excited for a youth-enhancing treatment, but unfortunately the majority of devices being used today do not meet this standard and will place you at risk.

Here at the Genesis Medspa, we offer the only FDA-approved microneedling device, SkinPen. This device has a totally isolated disposable needle attachment, with no possibility of tissue or blood retained in the handpiece. We at Genesis are proud to offer the best services with the best safety for our clients.
