What are the benefits of microneedling?

There are some major benefits of microneedling that have made it the treatment of choice for many skin concerns, including:

  • Reducing the look of scars
  • Improving skin texture and elasticity
  • Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Preventing the visible signs of aging (best combined with effective, medical-grade skincare products)
  • Improving the appearance of stretch marks

How does it work?

Microneedling makes tiny wounds on the skin that the body then works to heal. In turn, this helps treat and improve other skin issues in the process because your body is triggered to produce new collagen and elastin.

How many SkinPen Precision Microneedling treatments do I need?

For many patients, it takes only three treatments spaced 30 days apart to improve the look of your skin for six months after your last treatment! The best part is, SkinPen services are affordable and non-invasive.

Is microneedling safe?

The SkinPen Precision Microneedling has many safety features built in, including what’s known as ingress protection. Ingress protection ratings (or IP ratings) refer to how much protection an electrical enclosure has against solids and liquids. For a microneedling pen, it’s paramount to ensure blood and fluids from a procedure don’t make their way into a device.

The SkinPen has three different methods for ensuring there’s zero cross-contamination during a procedure. First, the cartridge head is 100% sealed so there’s no leaking. Second, the base has an ultrasonic watertight seal so no bodily fluids can enter. Finally, a Bio-Sheath covers the entire device for added protection.
