Everything You Need to Know About SkinPen
If you struggle with acne scarring, pigmentation or would like to give a boost of youth back to your skin, then our new SkinPen micro-needling treatment is for you. Take a look at our quick guide below for all the information you need before you book your first appointment.
What is the SkinPen?
The SkinPen is a cutting-edge device that delivers collagen stimulation therapy (CST) to the skin. More commonly known as micro-needling, the SkinPen creates microscopic punctures in the skin via the insertion of fine, short, sterilised needles. This process stimulates the body’s natural wound healing process, which causes an increase in collagen and elastin production. Don’t fret if you have a low pain threshold, the sensation is akin to a pinprick!
What are the benefits?
As the SkinPen rejuvenates from the inside out by triggering the skin to produce growth factors this treatment really is the ultimate for total rejuvenation of the skin.
SkinPen stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, which in turn sees an increase in both collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are key components to preventing signs of ageing by plumping the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and increasing the skin elasticity to deliver a lifted tightened complexion.
Also known as scarless healing, SkinPen can replace damaged scar tissue with new healthy collagen meaning this is the ultimate treatment for most types of scarring, enlarged pores and also pigmentation
SkinPen is the treatment that keeps on giving as you see a plumper fresher skin after about 7 days but the ultimate results come through after about 3 months. After your first session, your skin will look instantly more plump, refreshed, and luminous. As with all skin treatments, your desired results will depend on your skin concern, which will determine the number of sessions you will need. Our lovely skincare expert Katherine is on hand to advise on how many sessions you will need.
At Home vs. In Clinic?
Although you can use micro-needling rollers at home like our Cosmetic Gold Roll CIT these at-home treatments work to enhance penetration of product rather than rejuvenating the skin.
If you want to correct a particular skin concern, we recommend a course of treatments in the clinic. The SkinPen utilises slightly sharper needles, that when used correctly by a professional, can deliver more effective results. The SkinPen also increases the efficiency of your skincare, allowing the different steps in your routine to penetrate deeper into the skin’s surface.
