How SkinPen® Microneedling Works

Microneedling, sometimes known as collagen induction therapy, operates on a simple principle. By triggering the skin’s self-repair process with repeated micro-injuries to remodel and rejuvenate your skin. The SkinPen® uses a series of 14 microneedles to start this process, in turn leading to the release of growth factors that help remodel your skin’s natural collagen and elastin content.

But what does this mean for your skin? In short, a lot!

By triggering this response, SkinPen® microneedling helps reduce the visible signs of aging, especially acne scars. Ideal for all skin types, SkinPen® is an amazingly versatile treatment that offers fantastic results in as little as 30 minutes. There’s little-to-no downtime, meaning you can return to your day quickly and comfortably. You will also continue to see improvements in treated skin in the 3 months following your initial treatment

The SkinPen® uses adjustable length disposable straight needles, allowing for optimal treatment across varying skin thickness and type with unmatched precision.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is treatment only used on the face?

SkinPen® offers unmatched versatility for microneedling treatments, making it a safe and effective treatment option for the face, neck , and décolletage, to name a few.

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on your individual skin care goals. During your initial consultation, we’ll recommend a course of treatment to help you achieve your goals.

Am I a good candidate for SkinPen® treatment?

SkinPen® is a fantastic treatment option for all skin types and colours. Chances are you’re already an ideal candidate for treatment. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your needs, goals, and whether SkinPen® microneedling is a good fit for you.

When will I see results?

You’ll notice healthier looking skin immediately, but the repair process started by microneedling typically progresses over the course of several weeks. Depending on the level of damage, you might not see final results for up to six months.

What can I expect during treatment?

We start each treatment with the application of a topic anesthetic. This helps reduce any potential discomfort during the treatment. The average SkinPen® session typically lasts 30 minutes, and you can expect some mild redness and swelling for 2 to 4 days after treatment, not unlike a very mild sunburn, though many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Individual results may vary.
