The SkinPen is an advanced microneedling device designed to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating natural collagen production. It uses fine, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s healing response. This process enhances skin texture, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes scars and stretch-marks, and improves overall skin tone. The Skin Pen Precision is safe for all skin types, offers adjustable needle depths for customized treatments, and requires minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for achieving smoother, younger-looking skin.

With as few as three treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your skins appearance for six months after your last treatment!

The SkinPen works by utilizing a precise, automated microneedling technology to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. Here’s now the process works:

  1. Preparation:
    • The skin is thoroughly cleansed, and a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure comfort during the procedure.
  2. Microneedline Process:
    • The SkinPen device, equipped with fine, sterile needles, is gently glided over the treatment area.
    • The needles create tiny micro-injuries, or channels, in the skin at a controlled depth and speed.
  3. Stimulation of Healing:
    • These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural wound healing response, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers.
    • This process, known as collagen induction therapy helps to improve skin texture, firmness and elasticity.

1. Your provider gently but thoroughly cleanses your skin.

2. A topical anesthesia is applied to minimize discomfort (topical will be left on for 30 minutes for your comfort)

3. Lift hydrogel is applied to your neck, to help SkinPen glide smoothly across your skin.

4. SkinPen creates millions of controlled microchannels to target natural collagen and promote your body’s natural healing process.

5. After your treatment you may notice some redness or inflammation, which is totally normal and should subside within 24 hours to 72 hours.
