A Revolutionary Breakthrough for Beautiful Skin and the Only FDA Approved Micro-Needling Device
Not an actual patient. Results may vary.
SkinPen is a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It’s effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars. Fractional micro-needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) uses needles to pierce the skin in a controlled and precise pattern. Compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, SkinPen is safe on any skin type, has a short treatment time and minimal discomfort with virtually no downtime.
The SkinPen is an automated micro-needling device, with a disposable tip cartridge, that uses 11 micro-needles to vertically stamp the skin at high speed. The stamping action of the SkinPen’s vertical tip creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating new collagen production. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes.

As the SkinPen glides over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process.
Your skin normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are repaired, but with the SkinPen micro-needling treatments, the skin is tricked into repairing itself. Although results can be seen within 3-7 days, the process of skin remodeling can go on for months after each SkinPen treatment.
The concept of micro-needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin dissolves old damaged tissue and replaces it with new. SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. SkinPen’s expertise is in optimizing this process to improve results and minimize complications and discomfort.
Prior to the treatment, your skin is cleansed and a strong topical numbing cream is applied for 25-30 minutes. Your skin is then cleansed again and the SkinPen is applied to the treatment areas. The device uses an automated stamp method very much like microscopically aerating your skin. It allows deeper absorption of topicals that are applied to your skin and stimulates your body’s own repair mechanisms that creates more collagen.
