What Does SkinPen Do?
SkinPen transforms skin in this 3 step process
As the microneedles pierce the skin, you immune system automatically disinfects the small wound, removes debris, increases blood flow, and begins to create new tissue.
Your skin will rebuild with new collagen cells and a new network of blood vessels develop.
The micro-wound causes a replacement of new dermal tissues and blood vessels full of rich collagen and elastin proteins to improve the skin’s youthful state.
Is SkinPen Painful?
You will numb topically for 30 minutes prior to treatment with medical grade numbing cream. This will decrease the mild discomfort.
How Long Is Each Treatment? How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A consultation with our medical skin aesthetician is required prior to treatment. Treatment time lasts 1 – 1.5 hours, including numbing with topical numbing cream. The number of treatments needed will depend on the skin condition you wish to treat.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
You will experience slight swelling and redness for 24 to 48 hours.
Results: diminished fine lines under the eyes + improved skin tone and texture
