The SkinPen Precision is a non-surgical skin regeneration procedure, which significantly improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks. The micro-needling device stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin.
The procedure works by causing tiny micro-traumas to the skin, which stimulates the wound healing response, and collagen and elastin production, to help regenerate the skin. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration are seen and the process will continue over the following months.
Immediately after your SkinPen treatment you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.
Frequently asked questions
What is the SkinPen?
The SkinPen is a micro-needling device, with 14 very fine needles. It is FDA approved and CE Marked, meaning it has passed rigorous testing, and is validated to prevent the risk of cross contamination. It is used to stimulate skin cells, so they proliferate and form new layers of elastin and collagen fibres.
How is the SkinPen procedure performed & does it hurt?
The skin is cleaned and afterwards numbed with a cream so it should not hurt at all. The pen passes over each area 4 times, and can be altered to different depths for a comfortable and effective experience. A hydrating gel is applied during the procedure to enhance the results, and a moisturising cream is provided to apply afterwards to protect the skin.
