SkinPen is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.
*For optimal results book a series of 3 or more at a discounted rate. This service can also be performed on neck, décolleté, hands, etc.
Q: How long does the procedure take and will it hurt?
A: This procedure typically takes 30mins. Most SkinPen users apply a topical anesthetic to the skin prior to the procedure. This allows for a relatively pain-free experience.
Q: What is the downtime and what side effects should I expect?
A: The total healing time depends on each individual patient. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Some patients may heal completely in 24hrs. *Individual results will vary.
Q: When will I see results?
A: Patients may notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. *Individual results may vary.
Q: Can I wear make-up immediately following a procedure?
A: Patients typically can resume their normal makeup regimen 2-3 days following their procedure.
Q: Can I get a SkinPen procedure if I’m pregnant?
A: SkinPen is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
