SkinPen is an advanced, medical grade microneedling device to enhance facial skin appearance through reduction of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. Safe and controlled microneedling with SkinPen will trigger the self-repair process in the treated areas.
Following high precision microscopic injuries in the skin with this device, new collagen synthesis will begin to rejuvenate the skin. No scar tissue will form with the targeted and controlled microneedling technique of SkinPen. The technology is safe and effective for all skin types.
SkinPen microneedling device is versatile, and provides customized treatment to match with your unique skin care issues. The shallow depth adjustment (0.5 mm) is ideal for treating fine lines, enlarged pores, rough and crepe-like skin texture, minor scars and other superficial skin imperfections and blemishes.
Medium depth adjustment (1.0 mm) can treat mild to moderate wrinkles, mild stretch marks, and acne scars and small surgical scars. Deeper depth adjustments (1.5 to 3.0 mm) are effective in improving wrinkles and creases, deeper acne scars, traumatic and surgical scars, and stretch marks.
For skin care problems that require deeper penetration without surgery, medium and deeper depth SkinPen solutions can be quite effective. SkinPen microneedling not only works well in the face, but can also create change in areas such as the neck, chest, hands, arms, back, legs and abdomen.
Treatment Duration and Frequency
One treatment session with Microneedling SkinPen can take about 30 minutes to one hour depending on the number and size of areas to be treated and the extent of skin damage. While the number of treatments will depend on your skin condition and your personal aesthetic goals, most patients achieve best results in three to four treatment sessions.
To resolve deeper scarring and stretch marks, you will need as many as six treatment sessions. For mild anti-aging treatments and skin maintenance, you may do well just one to two treatment sessions in a year. Each treatment session is spaced about one month apart. The treatments are minimally invasive and will involve little to no downtime.

Treatment with PRP
You have an option to undergo SkinPen microneedling along with PRP therapy or without it. If you choose microneedling, it will create tiny micro-channels in your affected areas of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. In this condition, your deeper tissue is most receptive to absorb PRP (platelet rich plasma) growth factors.
Your provider can prepare PRP using a small sample of your own blood, and rub it into the micro-channels already created with SkinPen microneedling. The dual effects of PRP and microneedling will help you achieve more effective and sustainable results for various skin care issues.
