The Microneedling SkinPen Procedure

Superior to traditional needling the SkinPen penetrates the epidermis at greater speed and is the only FdA micro-needling device. The principle of the SkinPen is that the "micro-needles" only penetrate through the epidermis and does not remove it, so the epidermis is only cleft and will rapidly heal. This injury, minute as it might seem, does cause some localised damage and bleeding. Percutaneous induction of collagen results from the natural response to wounding the skin, even though the wound is miniscule.

What you can expect from your Skinpen Precision microneedling procedure:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles including upper lip wrinkles are smoothened
  • Skin is tightened, returning to its original thickness and elasticity restored

  • Lessen dilated blood vessels
  • A comfortable experience
  • Quick 48 hour recovery, Little to no downtime

  • Procedure is suited to all skin types (including laser-resurfaced skin). However, 'micro-needling' is not suitable for use on Active acne, Eczema, Rosacea, Psoriasis, solar keratosis and raised moles or warts
  • No permanent epidermal damage is caused as no skin layer is removed compared to deep peels, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing
