SkinPen Microneedling for skin remodelling & rejuvenation


SkinPen Microneedling for skin remodelling & rejuvenation

Are you looking for a non-invasive treatment to reduce fine lines and wrinkles? How about an effective treatment for acne scarring, enlarged pores and pigmentation? Let us introduce you to SkinPen, the world’s leading microneedling treatment, available at our aesthetics clinic in Bromley.

What is SkinPen?

SkinPen is the Medical Class 11 Mechanical Microneedling device that has taken the aesthetics world by storm. Clinically proven with visible results after just one treatment, SkinPen is suitable for all skin types and can be used safely all year round – even in the summer!

What does a SkinPen treatment do?

Remember when dermarolling was a thing? SkinPen is the newer, safer, faster, more sophisticated and more effective upgrade. Instead of manually moving a rolling pin covered in tiny needles across the skin, your aesthetician will power up the SkinPen, and use its 14-tip needle head to produce 98,000 micro-punctures to the skin per minute.

These temporary small micro-punctures, or micro-injuries as we call them, will activate your body’s natural wound-healing process and increase collagen and elastin production – both integral to your skin’s structure. As a result of this remodelling process, your skin will look brighter, healthier and more youthful after just one treatment.

What can SkinPen treat?

SkinPen Microneedling is incredibly versatile and used to address various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, trauma and surgical scarring, enlarged pores, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. By controlling the induction of the skin’s self-repair process, we can soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten a dull complexion, lift and remodel sagging skin and speed up cellular renewal to smoothen and refine scarring.

SkinPen is safe to use on all areas of the face and body. We will tailor the treatment, and number of sessions you require, for the best results.

SkinPen: What to expect during your treatment

If you are interested in SkinPen Microneedling in Bromley, we’ll first book you in for a consultation. Our SkinPen consultations cost £15, which we’ll deduct from your first Microneedling treatment. During the consultation, we will assess your skin and establish if it’s the right treatment for you, talking you through the entire process and expected results.

You’ll have the option to apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before the treatment. It isn’t essential, but it does help some clients feel more relaxed and comfortable during the SkinPen Microneedling treatment. With numbing cream applied, the treatment will take approximately 45-60 minutes. If you skip the numbing cream, your appointment will take around 30 minutes.

SkinPen: The Treatment

Before we begin, we will apply a specially formulated gel to the treatment area to allow the SkinPen handpiece to glide smoothly across the skin. Once you’re happy to start, we’ll turn the machine on, and you’ll notice it sounds like an electric toothbrush. The tiny needles will pulse out of the handpiece and create thousands of tiny micro-injuries as it’s moved over your skin. Most clients report minimal discomfort from SkinPen Microneedling and say it feels like a light scratch on the skin’s surface. We’ll check in with you throughout your treatment to ensure you’re still comfortable and happy.

SkinPen: Post-Treatment & Results

One of the benefits of SkinPen Microneedling in Bromley is that downtime is minimal. In most cases, you will look like you have a little mild sunburn. Your skin may also feel tighter and more sensitive than usual. This feeling is perfectly normal and should subside (along with any redness) within 24 hours.

To be on the safe side, we recommend that all SkinPen clients avoid drinking alcohol or participating in vigorous exercise for 48 hours post-treatment. Please don’t sunbathe or expose your skin to sun or extreme temperatures for at least 14 days. Avoid aspirin for 12-47 hours post-treatment, and if you have any concerns, please feel free to contact our friendly team.

One of the things we love most about SkinPen Microneedling is that results are visible after just one treatment! However, skin healing doesn’t happen overnight, and it can take up to 4 weeks to see noticeable, lasting improvements.

While one Microneedling facial might be enough for some, additional treatments will yield even better results! We’ll discuss how many SkinPen Microneedling sessions to book at your consultation, though it’s likely between 3-6 sessions, depending on your skin concern.

SkinPen Microneedling in Bromley starts at £199 for a Microneedling facial. Please visit our appointments page for further price details and book a consultation with Becky.
