SkinPen is a medical grade micro-needling treatment that enables your skin to produce NEW collagen. This helps to treat acne scarring, uneven tone or texture, hyper-pigmentation (brown spots), stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, and large pores. SkinPen can be used on the face or the body to target a wide variety of problem areas.
You will notice healthier looking skin immediately and your skin will continue to improve and produce new collagen up to 6 months post treatment following your final treatment. A series of 3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for most clients, however, we do recommend a consultation to determine the number of treatments recommended.
How should I prepare for my treatment?
If you are in the sun for a prolonged period of time, use a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and liberally reapply it throughout the day in all of your treatment areas that are exposed. Avoid exfoliating products for 48 hours before your treatment. If you are unsure about any products you are using please contact our office.
How should I expect to feel after my treatment?
After your treatment, you can expect to be red (like a sunburn). This redness can last 2-4 days depending on skin sensitivity and makeup can be used the day after your treatment.
You may experience peeling or light flaking a few days after your treatment. Every client is different. Any additional post care that pertains to you will be given to you at the time of your appointment.
