SkinPen Needling is a skin rejuvenating treatment which stimulates new dermal collagen production. The SkinPen comfortably and safely produces high density skin needling with a recovery time of 1 – 2 days. It is indicated for lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and anti-ageing, and can be used on all areas.

As for all collagen inducing therapy, it is best done as a series of treatments initially with regular maintenance.


What is SkinPen Collagen Induction Therapy?

One of the main causes of wrinkles as we age is the reduction in new collagen and elastin being produced by the skin. Most modern wrinkle treatments (aside from wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers) aim to correct this by stimulating collagen production. When the skin is damaged, the body naturally works to repair it. By causing controlled damage, the SkinPen boosts the production of collagen and elastin under the skin to make wrinkles less noticeable and the top layer of skin look fresher.

What is a SkinPen treatment like?

Thanks to the rapid motion, SkinPen Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is quick and comfortable. After this the treatment feels like a slight scratching across the skin, and most people find it very tolerable. Our Registered Nurse then cleans the area thoroughly before applying a thin layer of hydrating gel. This gel helps allow the SkinPen to glide across your skin easily while creating the micro-injuries designed to rejuvenate the skin. The gel also helps soothe the skin to and is absorbed into the small holes created to help hydrate and repair the skin. The depth of the treatment is carefully controlled, and is adjusted depending on the skin condition, concern targeted and the area to be treated.

As the SkinPen is moved across the skin, hundreds of superficial micro-channels are created every few seconds. The SkinPen procedure takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on the treatment area. Once finished, your skin will be pink and warm, like a mild sunburn. This will fade over the next 24 hours.

Makeup should be avoided for the first 6 hours after treatment, until the skin closes. If possible we ask that you leave your skin clean until the day after your treatment. We use and recommend Jane Iredale mineral makeup, as it will not harbour bacteria or block pores – and nothing covers redness like it.

How many SkinPen skin needling treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed depends on the condition being treated and the individual response. For a general rejuvenation and freshen up, you may be very happy after one treatment. To reduce lines and wrinkles, mild acne scarring or the appearance pores, best results are usually seen after a course of treatments. For maximum benefit, we recommend at least three treatments, done 4 – 6 weeks apart.

While you’ll usually see a lovely glow right away, best results are seen after 30 days, though results will vary from person to person.

How much does SkinPen Cost?
