SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared Microneedling device! It is a state-of-the-art, medical-grade device created to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars on the body and face. This skincare device also specifically aims to target acne scarring. The procedure delivers thousands of micro-injuries to initiate the body’s wound healing process. Your body begins to break down damaged tissue and produce healthy new cells. These cells repair and remodel the injured tissue, producing organized, healthy dermal tissue such as collagen and elastin. SkinPen Microneedling Technology activates collagen induction therapy for beautiful, youthful-looking skin, plumping it up and smoothing out wrinkles.
SkinPen can be used on all body parts including the face, neck, chest, back, arms, hands, abdomen and legs. As we age the architecture of our skin begins to deteriorate. This leads to wrinkles, large pores and fine lines. Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is the perfect way to resolve these signs of ageing at the cellular level. Microneedling creates thousands of ‘micro-injuries’ in the skin to begin the healing process. This starts the formation of collagen and elastin. These proteins are the foundation of the skin. Our treatment creates youthful, beautiful skin. Clients will see healthier-looking skin immediately, but results will continue to improve over time. Remember dermal collagen takes time. The device uses your body’s response to rejuvenate. You can see the final results in 3-6 months following your final session. This shows the process is natural and long-lasting!
How long does the procedure take?
About 30-60 minutes depending on the area being treated.
Will I have any downtime?
Most clients will have what looks like a mild sunburn for 2-4 days. A little bit of swelling may follow. There is downtime from normal activity. Most patients can resume their normal makeup and skin regimen within 2-3 days.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will be based upon your goals and the health of your skin. It is recommended for most clients to receive a series of 3 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-ageing, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4-6-week intervals. We also recommend creating a maintenance plan to maintain the glow and rejuvenating effects of your personalized SkinPen treatments.
Does the procedure hurt?
The unique design of SkinPen allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment very comfortable for clients.
