Results with little or no downtime!

As each person's biology and needs are different, treatment requirements and response to treatments will vary. The number of sessions required and the depth of treatment will vary based on what each individual would like to achieve.

SkinPen Can Help Achieve Your Goals

Custom Sessions, Desired Results

While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal results, noticeable results are typically seen just one week following treatment and gradually improve as the body's healing process promotes the production of healthy, new cells and extracellular matrix (e.g., collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid).

Patients with uneven skin-tone and fine lines may see a result after just one treatment, while those looking to soften the appearance of acne scarring may require several treatments.

SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, decolletage, arms, hand, legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes SkinPen especially helpful when addressing acne scars on the back and stretch marks on the body.

Promoting Radiance

SkinPen helps minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne or body scars while also reducing pore size and promoting that radiant, even skin-tone that everybody wants.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), or microneedling, is the procedure by which the body's natural response to healing is used to increase the amount of extracellular matrix such as collagen or elastin in the skin. The micro-channels created by the SkinPen allow for leakage of blood, serum, and lymph in a controlled and temporary manner. These "injuries" are enough to initiate the wound healing cascade which is composed of three basic phases.

 

 

 

About Treatments

Treatments with SkinPen are typically tolerated very well by patients, many reporting that they feel little-to-no discomfort during the procedure. Your SkinPen provider will work with you to ensure your comfort during your procedure.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure; however, since the skin is being penetrated there will be some mild effects afterwards. These effects will vary based on needle depth used and intensity of treatment. Typical post-treatment effects are as follows:

 

  • Day 1: Mild to moderate swelling and redness, similar to a mild sunburn. There may be some mild bruising as well.
  • Day 2: Some persisting redness may be present, but all redness bruising and swelling should be diminishing.
  • Day 3: Most redness, bruising and swelling should be nearly gone. Normal appearance with makeup may be achieved.
  • Day 4: Appear mostly normal at this point with some minor swelling.
