SkinPen Microneedling

Precision Microneedling

The SkinPen®Advantage

SkinPen is a Medical Class 11 Mechanical Micro-Needling device for the treatment of FINE LINES | WRINKLES | SCARS

As the skin ages the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates.

This deterioration leads to fine lines, wrinkles , large pores and uneven skin texture

SkinPen comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This process results in skin remodelling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin.

Any product applied to the skin during or immediately after a SkinPen Treatment is absorbed into the basal layers of the skin.

SkinPen Mechanical Micro-Needling Vs Manual Dermarolling

  • The difference between manual dermal rollers and the Mechanical SkinPen device is the more micro-punctures a device is able to achieve, the more dramatic the results will be.
  • With the majority of dermal rollers, the maximum achievable number of holes is somewhere between 300 and 400 holes per second. SkinPen Precision has its 14-tip needle head and the Smart Advantage motor that produces 7000 revolutions per minute, producing 98,000 channels per minute.
  • Dermal rollers are simply outdated consisting of a rolling pin covered with tiny needles. During a Dermaroller treatment, the roller is rolled across the skin, leaving behind a trail of microscopic punctures. While the needle roller is effective, the rolling action causes the needles to enter AND exit the skin at an angle, creating lateral epidermal tears, this makes the treatment much more uncomfortable, and often causes a longer downtime for the patient.

How the process works

After a full consultation topical numbing cream can be applied to make it a comfortable experience.

A specially formulated gel is applied to the skin to allow the SkinPen to glide over the skin. If anything you will feel a light scratch on the skin.
