How Does the SkinPen Device Work?

The SkinPen uses a sterile microneedling technique to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. The device contains a disposable cartridge with 12 stainless steel micro-needles that oscillate rapidly, creating tiny vertical channels in the skin’s surface and deeper layers. These micro-channels act as injury sites that trigger the body’s natural wound-healing cascade. Growth factors rush to the site of injury, new blood vessels form, and fibroblasts produce new collagen and elastin.

Over 4-6 weeks, the skin remodels this new collagen to gradually smooth, firm, and regenerate the treated areas. The SkinPen’s needle depth is adjustable from .25 mm to 2.5 mm for customized treatment. Deeper channels allow better penetration of serums. Shallow punctures treat delicate areas. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes depending on the targeted area.

SkinPen vs. Other Microneedling Treatments

Unlike at-home rollers, SkinPen lets your provider customize the needle depth for your unique skin goals, whether it’s smoothing acne scars or plumping up fine lines. The single-use cartridge keeps things sterile – no risk of bacteria buildup!

Skin Pen’s motorized stamps deliver way more micro-injuries versus gliding a manual device across your skin. More micro-injuries mean better collagen stimulation and faster healing. Plus, it is is the only device with FDA clearance to improve facial acne scarring. No other microneedler has the smart tech that auto-adjusts needle speed based on your skin’s thickness.

If you want fast and effective, SkinPen’s superior engineering gives better results than any derma roller, dermapen, or DermaFrac. Imitation devices might have side effects. SkinPen is an innovative leader!

The Benefits of SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen microneedling offers numerous benefits for revitalizing the skin’s appearance and achieving a more youthful, radiant complexion. Here’s an overview of what this innovative treatment can do:

Stimulate collagen production

The micro-injuries created by SkinPen’s motorized microneedle tip trigger your body’s natural healing process, including increased collagen synthesis. More collagen means plumper, firmer skin.

Improve skin texture

By activating collagen renewal, SkinPen’s microneedles smooth out rough skin patches, scars, fine lines, and enlarged pores for improved overall skin tone and texture across the treatment area.

Reduce signs of aging

SkinPen reduces common signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sunspots by stimulating new skin cell growth and collagen.

Minimize acne scar

The SkinPen’s microneedling action helps fill in depressed acne scars through collagen remodeling for a smoother appearance.

Fade stretch marks

SkinPen’s microscopic wounds rebuild the extracellular matrix and increase elasticity to fade stubborn stretch marks.

Non-invasive procedure

As a non-surgical treatment, SkinPen offers rejuvenating results with no anesthesia or incisions required. There is no laser thermal damage.

Little to no downtime

Most patients report minimal downtime with perhaps slight redness for 24-48 hours after treatment before returning to normal activities.

Safe for all skin types

SkinPen is safe and effective for all skin types and colors unlike laser treatments that can damage darker skin.

List of Areas That Can Be Treated with SkinPen

One of the major benefits of SkinPen microneedling is its versatility for use on many areas of the face and body.

Here are the top treatment areas:

1. Face – SkinPen can be used to improve the overall appearance of the face by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and signs of photodamage. It is safe for use around delicate areas like the eyes, lips, and neck.

2. Neck – SkinPen is effective for treating crepey skin and horizontal neckline spaces. The collagen stimulation helps restore firmness.

3. Décolletage – This delicate area can be safely treated to minimize sun spots, improve creepiness, and tighten loose skin.

4. Body – SkinPen can address stubborn cellulite dimples, stretch marks, and surgical/traumatic scarring anywhere on the body including the arms, legs, back, abdomen, and buttocks.

5. Hands – SkinPen is fantastic for the thin skin on the hands to reduce age spots and improve skin texture for a more youthful look.

 

Treatment Areas Skin Concerns Addressed

Treatment Areas Skin Concerns Addressed
Face Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars
Neck Crepey skin, neck lines
Décolletage Sun spots, crepiness
Body Cellulite, stretch marks, scars
Hands Age spots, loose skin

With adjustable needle depths from 0.25 mm up to 2.5 mm, SkinPen can be adapted to treat mild to moderate skin concerns on any area of the face or body. It is always best to consult with an experienced provider on recommended treatment areas and depths to achieve your desired results safely through the optimal healing process.

How long do SkinPen Treatment Results Last?


One of the great things about SkinPen microneedling is that the results continue improving over time and last quite a while with proper care.

Here’s an overview:

Gradual improvements – You won’t see the results overnight. Improvements are gradual over the course of 3-6 months as your skin fully remodels collagen.

Short-term effects – Some initial effects like glow and plumping last 1-2 weeks before fading as swelling subsides.

Long-term improvements – Deeper improvements in tone, texture, fine lines, and scars continue evolving over months.

1-2 years – With appropriate home care and sun protection, most patients enjoy visible SkinPen results for 1-2 years before considering maintenance.

Annual touch-up – An annual Skin Pen microneedling session helps maintain results. This stimulates your body’s healing process to generate a fresh supply of collagen.

Lifestyle factors – Results last longer when patients eat a healthy diet, stay hydrated, avoid excessive sun exposure, don’t smoke, and consistently care for their skin.

Timeframe Expected Results
1-2 weeks Temporary glow, plumping
1-3 months Gradual improvements continue
1-2 years Longer lasting rejuvenation
Annual Collagen renewal maintenance

SkinPen’s medical-grade microneedling device triggers longer-term regeneration for visibly improved skin. Follow the post-treatment recommendations to help extend your youthful SkinPen results.

Who is a Good Candidate for SkinPen?


The SkinPen microneedling treatment is suitable for most patients who want to improve their skin’s appearance without surgery. Good candidates include:

  • Adults of any skin type or color seek overall skin rejuvenation and anti-aging benefits.

Why do you need SkinPen Microneedling Treatment

Pre-treatment Care Guidelines

Proper preparation is essential to achieve optimal results from your SkinPen Precision microneedling treatment. Here are some tips to help you prepare for your treatment:

1.) Avoid sun exposure to the treatment area for 2-4 weeks before the treatment to minimize sensitivity reactions.

2.) Discontinue retinoids, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, and acid exfoliants 3-5 days before the treatment to reduce irritation.

3.) Arrive with clean, dry skin – do not apply lotions, makeup, sunscreen, or other products beforehand.

4.) Numbing cream can be applied for 30-60 minutes before the treatment for added comfort as the needles penetrate your skin.

5.) Shave your beard at least 24 hours beforehand if treating the face or neck in men.

6.) Inform your provider if you have a history of cold sores to receive prophylactic antivirals.

7.) Take over-the-counter pain relievers beforehand if you are very sensitive or anxious about any discomfort.

Following these tips can help you optimize the results and comfort of your SkinPen Precision microneedling treatment.

What Does the SkinPen Treatment Feel Like?

During a SkinPen microneedling treatment, you will feel the tip of the device gliding over your skin. Many patients describe the sensation as vibrational. Others feel a pricking sensation as the needles penetrate the skin. Your provider will adjust the needle depth and speed to maximize results while keeping you comfortable.

Here are some common experiences patients report:
• A vibration feeling over the treatment area

• Brief pricking as the needles enter the skin

• Mild heat at times as the collagen induction process is activated

• Minimal to no pain, especially with numbing cream

• Temporary redness for 24-48 hours post-treatment

Keep in mind, that results will vary. Your individual experience depends on your pain tolerance, the areas treated, and whether a topical anesthetic was used. Overall, the SkinPen Precision device allows for a well-tolerated, minimally invasive microneedling treatment that rejuvenates the skin without significant discomfort for most patients.

What is The SkinPen Recovery Time?

One of the benefits of SkinPen microneedling is the very minimal downtime required after treatment. Here’s what to expect:

1.) Immediately after your session, your skin will likely be red and flushed from the natural wound-healing process being activated.

2.) In the first 24 hours, you may notice some minor pinpoint bleeding, bruising, or swelling around the treated areas. This is temporary.

3.) Redness and sensitivity generally subside within 24-48 hours after treatment.

4.) Most patients feel comfortable returning to normal activities right after their appointment.

5.) Avoid sun exposure, sweating, and wearing makeup for at least 72 hours post-treatment.

6.) After 3-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart as part of your customized treatment plan, your skin will look younger and more revitalized.
SkinPen’s non-invasive approach enables you to achieve significant skin rejuvenation with virtually no downtime and minimal side effects.

Follow your expert’s post-care instructions to ensure proper healing.

How Much Do SkinPen Treatments Cost?

The cost of a SkinPen microneedling treatment depends on your geographic location, the provider’s expertise level, and the size of the area being treated.

Many providers offer package pricing if you purchase a series of treatments upfront at a discounted rate. For most patients, three to four treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart provide optimal collagen induction and skin rejuvenation.

While not covered by insurance, SkinPen’s affordable per-treatment cost provides dramatic anti-aging benefits and improved appearance without the high expense of surgery or lasers.

FAQs

 

How is SkinPen different than at-home microneedling tools?

Unlike over-the-counter rollers and pens, SkinPen’s motorized stamps penetrate at faster speeds for more controlled injuries and better results. The adjustable needle depth of up to 2.5mm enables deeper collagen induction. Only SkinPen is an FDA-cleared medical device.

What about pain – does SkinPen hurt?

Most patients tolerate the treatment well, feeling only mild vibration or pricking sensations. Your provider can customize the speed and depth to maximize your comfort. Numbing cream is also available 30 minutes prior to keep you comfortable.

When will I see results/changes in my skin?

Improvements occur gradually over weeks as your collagen remodels. Some initial plumping fades after 1-2 weeks. Deeper improvements in tone, texture, and scars continue over the following months.

How many treatments do I need?

Most providers recommend 3 to 6 sessions spaced about 4-6 weeks apart for optimal new collagen stimulation and visible rejuvenation. After the initial series, annual touch-up visits help maintain results.

What kind of downtime is there after SkinPen?

There is minimal downtime with perhaps some redness and swelling for 24-48 hours. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately but should avoid sun, makeup, and sweating for 72 hours post-treatment.

Can SkinPen remove deep wrinkles and advanced sun damage?

While SkinPen can help reduce fine lines and improve photodamage, the best results are seen with milder skin aging. Severely wrinkled or sagging skin may require surgery or laser resurfacing.

Is SkinPen safe on ethnic skin tones?

Yes, SkinPen is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. It does not carry the same risk of hyperpigmentation or scarring as laser treatments on darker skin tones.
