Micro-Needling

With SkinPen

Skin and Collagen Regeneration

The safest and most advanced Microneedling

SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimising cellular damage. The result is effective remodelling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

Suitable for the treatment of
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone / texture
Pigmentation due to sun damage or ageing
Dull skin
Scarring from acne or chicken pox

The SkinPen system is considered a highly beneficial, safe and natural choice for the resolution of various skin concerns, involving no heat, toxins, or chemicals to remove layers of the skin.

As the only FDA and BSI approved microneedling device available today, SkinPen is unlike any other devices in its offering of the next generation of derma or skin needling.

With all the benefits of disposable microneedling pen systems, SkinPen’s ‘ingress protection’ prevents fluids from passing through the cartridge into the pen. This makes the system both contamination and risk free.

Procedure

Following the application of a topical anaesthetic approximately 30 minutes prior to treatment, the medical-grade microneedling tool is applied to targeted areas of the face or body.

These tiny punctures – or ‘micro-injuries’ – stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal wounds, encouraging the production of collagen and healthy new tissue – minimising cellular damage and change to the structure of the skin.

Treatment Areas

Skin: SkinPen can be used to improve the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars

It can be used on many different body parts, including:

  • Face + neck
  • Décolletage
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Back.

SkinPen needles adjust to different lengths, allowing your SkinPen provider to customize your procedure based on skin’s thickness and your specific needs.

Side Effects

There are minimal side effects and downtime following a SkinPen procedure. Slight swelling and redness/pinkness in the area (like that from a mild sunburn) usually last only two to four days, so you can return to work or social activities quickly. SkinPen has minimal risk of scarring or infections.

After Care

We will fully discuss aftercare with you, and make sure all of your questions have been answered. Many of us prefer to have things written down as a reminder, so you will also receive a copy of the advice to take away with you.

Some examples include:

  • Avoid applying makeup or sunscreen for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours.
  • After 24 hours, apply a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a minimum of SPF30 for 2 weeks.
  • Avoid gym environments for 72 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid direct sunlight or tanning for 48 hours
    • For at least 72 hours after treatment, do not use:
    • Alpha Hydroxy Acids
    • Beta Hydroxy Acid
    • Retinol (Vitamin A)

No Obligation Consultation

Your first step is a no-obligation Visia consultation at Skintique Clinic with one of our skin specialists.

Meeting your Practitioner and the Consultation

Meeting your practitioner for your one-to-one consultation.

This will include:
• A full assessment your skin, concerns and desired results.
• Details about the procedure, likely outcomes and costs.

After taking a full medical history and reviewing your Visia Gen8 images your practitioner will discuss the range of treatments available at Skintique Clinic for your skin concerns. Your practitioner will design a bespoke plan with you based on your expectations. You will also be provided with detailed information on the procedures, the likely outcomes and the approximate timescales. Should you then wish to go ahead with the treatments a future appointment will be made.

Treatment

On arrival for your treatment, you will be asked to check over your medical history form to confirm that nothing has changed. You will be then asked to complete a treatment consent form.

The treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour or more depending on the treatment.

Results Review

Many of our treatments are progressive and require a course of treatment for the optimal result. Some conditions will need maintenance treatments to maintain the final result. Your practitioner will indicate the approximate number of treatments with you at the start. But as everyone is different this can only be used as an approximate guide and not as a guarantee.

The skin cycle on a health individual who has regular treatments is approximately 6 weeks.

Next Appointment

Our team will arrange your next appointment before you leave the clinic.

Frequently asked questions

Is this treatment Suitable for me?

SkinPen is suitable for all skin types, and can effectively treat:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone / texture
Pigmentation due to sun damage or ageing
Dull skin
Scarring from acne or chicken pox

How does the treatment work?

SkinPen is used to perform microneedling. This process is also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy. It uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These tiny points of contact encourage the body to create a wound-healing response, which renews the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.

How is the treatment performed?

Following the application of a topical anaesthetic approximately 30 minutes prior to treatment, the medical-grade microneedling tool is applied to targeted areas of the face or body.

How does the treatment feel?

The treatment is generally described as mildly uncomfortable at most, due to the nature of the procedure – and is considered to be more comfortable than many other micro-needling treatments due to the SkinPen’s high-speed needle motor for swift skin penetration.
