What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours. SkinPen is clinically proven to fight the appearance of neck wrinkles and reduce the appearance of acne scars. It’s a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office with little to no downtime. As the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen sets the industry standard for safety. The signs of aging can be visibly reduced. Clients report smoother looking skin, immense improvement in the appearance of their fine lines, and a visible reduction in pores.

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions About SkinPen
What about the recovery period of my skin and wearing makeup?
SkinPen may cause redness, dryness, and flaking skin. This will resolve within a few days. You will be able to wear makeup after 24 hours.
What will be the treatment interval?
We recommend a series of at least three treatments performed every 4-6 weeks. After the series, a periodical maintenance treatment to maintain the achieved result is recommended. The full facial treatment takes approximately 60 minutes.
Are there any contraindications to SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen should be avoided if there is an active skin infection or cold sore. You should not have this treatment if you have used any Retinol product in the last thirty days. You should use caution if you have thin skin, Diabetes or take blood thinners.
Why should I choose SkinPen Microneedling instead of a Needle Roller?
SkinPen is the only way to get consistent depth and coverage to the entire treatment area. Needle rollers can cause tearing of tissue with bleeding. This can cause more harm than good.
