What Is SkinPen Microneedling?

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.

What Can SkinPen Be Used For?

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Tired and dull looking skin
  • Minimizing pore size

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.

What Should I Expect from A SkinPen Treatment?

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.

Step 1 - Your clinician will apply a topical anaesthetic at the start of your session to ensure that the treatment areas are numb before she begins, keeping the treatment comfortable and pain free.

Step 2 – SkinPen treatment is very quick, usually taking no more than 30-40 minutes per session. Most patients report a pain-free experience, you may note a vibration like feeling from the device during the procedure.

Step 3 - Immediately after treatment your skin may appear slightly pink or red, some compare it to the look of a mild sunburn. Additionally, you may note some tightness, itching or tenderness, all of which resolve quickly and would not be cause for concern.

Step 4 - After the treatment is complete, your clinician may recommend after care products which will help keep your skin in the best possible condition between sessions, or once the treatment is complete.
