SkinPen is a micro skin treatment designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. It is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool available only through skincare professionals.

By creating a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the dermis (the top layer of your skin), SkinPen stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin – producing excellent skin rejuvenation results with little or no downtime. Your skin will look and feel healthier!

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is the procedure by which multiple tiny, sterile needles are used to create microscopic, closely spaced holes in the skin in order to induce the body's natural healing response to produce fresh, new dermal tissues.

How Does Microneedling work?

  • Microinjuries allow for release of serum containing cytokines and growth factors, important for cell renewal
  • Promotes deposition of fresh new collagen without scar formation
  • Creation of microchannels in the skin with minimal damage to epidermis
  • Microchannels allow topicals to penetrate deeper than typically possible, but only temporarily (<1 hr>)

Microchannel Formation

Creation of microchannels in the skin with minimal damage to epidermis. Microchannels are open for a short time, which allows for more efficient penetration of topicals. Minimal damage to tissue equals minmal downtime

Post-treatment Expectations

  • Day 1: Patients should expect mild to moderate swelling and redness, similar to a mild sunburn. There may be some mild bruising in some patients as well.

  • Day 2: Some persisting redness may be present, but all redness, bruising and swelling should be diminishing. Nothing some clean, mineral based makeup wouldn't cover.

  • Day 3: Most redness, bruising and swelling should be nearly gone. Normal appearance with makeup may be achieved

  • Day 4: Patient should appear mostly normal at this point with some minor swelling.
