What is SkinPen?

SkinPen is a small device with 12 microneedles which can go to a depth of between 0.25mm to 2.5mm depending on the treatment area. This means the practitioner can treat more areas of the face and body and get more targeted results especially for the eye, mouth and nose areas. As it is a pen, it uses vertical movement only for the needling process. This means there is less drag on the skin in comparison to other microneedles especially those on rolling devices, which causes drag and trauma to the skin.

The SkinPen, which is the device used at Health & Aesthetics can produce 1300 holes per second in the skin which massively enhances the effectiveness while giving a safe rejuvenation to the skin.

SkinPen can be used on all skin types so is an excellent option for those with darker skin who are unable to treat their skin conditions with laser due to the high risk of pigmentation.

Frequently Asked Questions

In general, we recommend a course of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. However, for those looking to treat acne scars we would likely recommend a longer course of up to 5 sessions to give the best results to our patients.

After the procedure, your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin. Your body will form new collagen and elastin, generate new skin cells and enhance the blood supply.

It can take up to 12 weeks before you will experience visible signs of regeneration and repair and the process will continue over the following months resulting in gradual and long-lasting improvements to your skin.

To further improve the skin, we would recommend that the patients use ZO Skin Health to further improve the skin’s quality and incorporating Retinols into their routine to further reduce lines and wrinkles or improve the appearance of scars.

Skinade is an excellent choice for those looking to improve their skin’s quality. There are  fantastic cases whereby the patients have massively diminished the appearance of scars while improving their skin’s quality.

Dermalux LED light therapy is excellent at helping to rejuvenate the skin and boost collagen production to boost the SkinPen results, while helping with healing.
