Maximum results. Little or no downtime.
SkinPen is a microneedling procedure that stimulates the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin.
How It Works
SkinPen works by creating tiny channels or micro-injuries in the skin to accelerate its natural wound-healing process. The controlled placement of the channels also allows products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.
What to Expect
This safe, minimally invasive treatment helps reverse years of sun damage, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and give you noticeably healthier, younger-looking skin.
How is the procedure done?
During the procedure, your practitioner will apply a thin layer of serum onto your skin and select the appropriate treatment for your skin type. The pen is then gently glided across the target area. The pen uses disposable, adjustable-length straight needles to penetrate the skin at a 90-degree angle.
What parts of the body can be treated with SkinPen?
Because of its variable needle length, SkinPen can be used on the face, neck, and chest area as well as on other parts of the body, including the hands, arms, legs, abdomen, and back.
Will the treatment hurt?
Due to SkinPen’s individualized settings, most patients report little discomfort during treatment. Depending on your needs, your practitioner may apply a topical numbing agent just before treatment.
How long will the procedure take?
The procedure may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Procedure time will depend on the size, number, and the condition of the skin areas to be treated.
Will there be any downtime?
For most patients, the procedure will require little to no downtime. Healing time will depend on a number of factors, such as needle depth, aggressiveness of the treatment, and severity of skin damage.
Will there be any side effects?
Some patients heal within 24 hours; however, the average patient will experience symptoms similar to a mild sunburn (slight swelling and redness) for two to four days.
When will I see results?
Some patients see visibly healthier skin immediately after treatment; however, dermal collagen repair is a gradual process that takes several weeks. In patients with more severe skin damage, it may take three to six months for results to be noticeable.
Will I need follow-up treatments?
Your practitioner will be the one to develop your maintenance plan and determine whether or not you will need further treatment. This will depend on your skin’s health, how well you heal over time, and your individual treatment goals.
The average patient undergoes three treatments at four-week intervals. More severe skin issues—such as acne scarring, stretch marks, and deep wrinkles—may require six to eight sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.
Does SkinPen require that I use a specific product line post-treatment?
Your practitioner may recommend the Bellus Medical Skinfuse post-procedure protocol, which was especially developed to aid in the cell renewal process. You may, however, use any product line of your choice two to three days after the procedure.
The two- to three-day “rest” period also applies to makeup.
Is SkinPen Treatment for Me?
Your DermaTouch RN practitioner will advise you on whether SkinPen will suit your needs and treatment goals.
The SkinPen microneedling treatment can be performed on all types of skin to address a wide range of skin problems, such as acne scars and other areas that require intense repair or cell regeneration.
SkinPen is not suitable for use on patients with an active fungal or bacterial infection or who have a history of hemorrhagic disorders, hemostatic dysfunction, keloid scars, collagen vascular diseases, scleroderma, or cardiac abnormalities.
It is also not recommended for pregnant women.
