SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen for the face is a microneedling treatment that is quickly gaining popularity among dermatologists, aestheticians, and other providers. It uses fractional radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of the skin. Microneedles penetrate the skin and deliver RF energy to the deeper layers during a session. This process results in a decrease in wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and other common complexion concerns.

What Is SkinPen?

The SkinPen® Precision system is a microneedling device and accessories intended to be used as a treatment to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck for Fitzpatrick skin types II - IV and to improve the appearance of facial acne scars in adults with all Fitzpatrick skin types.

SkinPen® uses microneedling technology and radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help improve skin tone and texture.  

What Skin Concerns Can SkinPen Treat?

The SkinPen® treatment is suitable for all skin tones and requires little or no downtime. Various skin concerns can be addressed with SkinPen® treatments. When handled by an experienced individual, it can:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Improve the appearance of sagging skin by firming and tightening it 
  • Ensure smooth skin 
  • Ensure that pores do not appear large 
  • Relieve acne scarring and hyperpigmentation 
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks 
  • Remove a small amount of fat just beneath the skin (not enough to reduce facial volume significantly) 

SkinPen® works by creating microscopic channels, which allow the device to deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. This energy then helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are proteins that support smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

What Happens During a SkinPen Session?

Prior to treatment, numbing cream may be applied to the area to make it more comfortable. 

On the treated area, 1-3 passes will be conducted with the SkinPen® device. Using the special applicator with coated pins, fat and connective tissue will be gently warmed, resulting in tighter skin, reduced wrinkles, and overall rejuvenation.

SkinPen Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery from SkinPen® is relatively easy, with only a few days of social downtime involved. For approximately one to three days following treatment, you may experience redness, itching, and swelling. 

You can take care of your skin after a SkinPen® treatment by:

  • Turning over scabbing and crusting with exfoliating cleansers and enzymatic masks 
  • Staying away from anything that irritates your skin until it has healed 
  • Avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30
  • Utilizing products containing growth factors, peptides, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and retinol to maintain your results after the initial healing process is complete

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Typically, patients will see initial results within a few days after their treatment. However, full results may take three to six months to appear, as collagen production takes time. But the results from SkinPen® are long-lasting, and patients can expect to see a gradual and significant improvement in the appearance of their skin with maintenance sessions.
