SkinPen is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars on the face and body.
SkinPen stimulates your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. It allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-pricks to the skin, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis but without causing scar tissue formation.
SkinPen microneedling has been safely used in a wide variety of patient-types, including patients of all skin-types.
The variable depth of SkinPen and the cordless design provide significant versatility to create change in many areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
The actual procedure typically takes about 30 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of damage on the skin, and results in little to no downtime for the patient.
Because the downtime is minimal, especially when compared to a laser or Fraxel treatment, SkinPen is an ideal procedure to do 4-6 days prior to an event or instance when you want your skin to look especially fresh, smooth and glowing.
Immediately following the procedure, patients should expect a significant amount of redness and swelling in the face and treated areas. Redness/swelling will fade dramatically over the next 24 hours, and most patients saw completely recovered skin by their 3rd day post-treatment.
