Common Questions

SkinPen works by creating a series of hundreds of microscopic channels into the dermis to stimulate the skin’s natural production of new collagen and elastin, helping skin to look and feel healthier. SkinPen® needles cycle at 100+ stamps/second, potentially creating 1600+ microchannels per second when moving the SkinPen®.

Microneedling can be performed using SkinPen®, a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool available only through medical professionals. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the degree of treatment requested by the patient.

SkinPen’s® variable needle depth allows for maximum versatility, making it safe and effective to use on many parts of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage. Talk to your SkinPen® provider to discuss your specific needs.

Generally most patients will experience redness and heat to the area post treatment. Heat tends to subside within 1-2 hours and redness tends to reduce within 24-48 hours.

The natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress through the course of several weeks. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the final result for up to six months following your final session. *Individual results will vary.

Multiple treatment sessions will be recommended depending on the skin concern being targeted. We recommend treatments to be 4 weeks apart and is a great treatment option that can be intermittently used in conjunction with other treatments. 

Due to the nature of the natural healing process, results will continue to improve in the weeks following treatment, with optimum results being visible at around 3-6 months post the final treatment session.

We recommend going makeup-free so we can get the best possible view of your skin.
