SkinPen® is a microneedling treatment that harnesses your body’s natural powers of rejuvenation to improve complexion concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration and stretch marks. This treatment offers a less aggressive alternative to Fraxel® laser resurfacing . The SkinPen® microneedling tool creates controlled micro-injuries that trigger your body’s healing response for smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

The best candidates for microneedling with SkinPen® are men or women hoping to minimize complexion imperfections such as fine lines, scarring, uneven texture and age spots. SkinPen® works by boosting collagen and elastin production, refreshing and rejuvenating your appearance for skin that’s clearer, firmer and healthier. SkinPen® can be used in combination with other surface treatments, such as chemical peels, which allows the treatment to penetrate more deeply into the skin and achieve greater results. Microneedling can be used virtually anywhere on the face or body, including the neck and décolletage.
There are several specific complexion concerns that can be addressed with SkinPen® microneedling:
Microneedling with SkinPen® stimulates your skin’s natural healing process by causing temporary cellular inflammation. As the skin heals from your treatment, the production of collagen and elastin promote a youthful plumpness that minimizes the appearance of acne scars.
SkinPen® treatments activate collagen and elastin production in the skin, encouraging facial skin to tone, tighten and firm. Microneedling can help prevent sagging skin before it starts or improve minor skin sagging. Some people may choose to use microneedling treatments to enhance their results from a facelift.
Just as SkinPen® can be used to improve acne scars, stretch marks are also commonly reduced with the use of microneedling. SkinPen® can be used on most areas of the body where stretch marks can be found. The microneedling treatment helps stretch marks fade into your natural skin tone and offers the best results after a series of sessions.
Microneedling with SkinPen® promotes collagen and elastin production, both of which help to smooth and strengthen the sensitive skin around the eyes. SkinPen® can be particularly effective for fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet.
SkinPen® helps stimulate important proteins that contribute to tighter, firmer skin. A series of SkinPen® treatments can help restore stronger tissue in the lower face for better resistance against signs of aging, including deep wrinkles in the lower face.
Right after your appointment, your skin may look red or feel tender, but this should fade within 1 to 2 days. Some minor swelling during the first few days following treatment is also normal. Since SkinPen® is minimally invasive, you can expect to return to your normal daily routine immediately after your appointment.
While many men and women see improvements after only one or two appointments, a series of treatments is often recommended for the optimum outcome. To minimize the appearance of deeper scars, you may wish to use injectable fillers to provide the finishing touch for a smooth, polished complexion. SkinPen® treatments are also commonly combined with Clear + Brilliant to further rejuvenate the skin.
