SkinPen is a device which contains tiny sterile needles, used to create measured and controlled micro injuries in the skin. This in turn, stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, increasing collagen production in the treated areas, resulting in smoother and more radiant skin. Collagen is an essential protein fibre in the skin that provides support, firmness, and elasticity.
SkinPen is an excellent option for treating a range of different conditions and concerns, and even for those just looking to revitalise tired or dull looking skin. SkinPen can deliver dramatic results in natural, non-invasive skin rejuvenation promoting the restructuring and remodelling of the skin, improving the overall look, tone, texture, and integrity of the skin.
There are different stages to the body’s wound healing process. Initially, piercing the skin triggers our immune systems to send white blood cells to the area and disinfect the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to produce new tissue. The affected area is then rebuilt with new cells before being replaced with fresh dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Usually between 3-6 sessions will be recommended in order to obtain best results. Results can often be seen after just one application, with full final results visible usually around three months post treatment; results will depend on each individual.
Before any treatment is carried out, you will usually require a consultation with one of our clinicians in order to provide you with a personalised treatment plan, and ensure SkinPen is the right treatment for your needs.
SkinPen is a very safe and effective treatment with very mild side effects, if any.
You may experience some redness or mild flushing after treatment, this can last for around 24 hours, but usually clears up very quickly. Rarely you may feel a slight tightness in the skin, those with extremely delicate skin types may note mild bruising or swelling, however this is uncommon.
