Regenerate, soften and repair

This is often referred to as collagen induction therapy and is an advanced micro-medical skin-needling procedure that works by promoting natural collagen reproduction without scarring thus creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

SkinPen® can be used to significantly improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged and ageing skin, acne scars and general scars.

Video – Skinpen explained

SkinPen® uses 14 state of the art smooth adjustable length needles that pierce the skin and cause thousands of micro-injuries into the skin’s surface. The body is then tricked into producing collagen to heal the damage, resulting in a significant improvement in the texture and tone of your skin. Collagen production slows down with age so any boost that can be given is beneficial. Wrinkles and lines will fill out and fade over time. Pigmented areas will be repaired due to the growth of new skin providing even colouring, tone and texture. Fibrous and uneven scar tissue will be broken up enabling the skin to become smoother and the scar to become less noticeable. Downtime is minimal, usually consisting of a slightly red face, or other treated area, similar to moderate sunburn. It is not uncommon to experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch which will diminish significantly after a few hours and should be completely healed within 24 hours. Other possible side effects are itching and stinging which normally only last up to 48 hours. There will be barely any evidence three days post-treatment. Results should be visible after six to eight weeks and continue to improve further over time.

In order to achieve the best results more than one SkinPen® procedure might be recommended, a course of three is an effective and economical way to have this treatment.
