What is Microneedling?
SkinPen is the first FDA-approved micro needling device that causes tiny perforations in the skin to stimulate collagen production. The result is a remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the skin intact.
How does Microneedling work?
Phase I: Inflammation
Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation
The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. A new network of blood cells is created.
Phase III: Remodeling
The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Only Stings a Little. Most patients report feeling slight vibration from the microneedling pen.
Minimal Post-Procedure Effects. While the skin will appear red immediately after treatment similar to a mild sunburn, this is an expected result and will soon begin to clear up. See our SkinPen Aftercare Guide for more information.
WHAT ELSE CAN MICRONEEDLING HELP?
The SkinPen, the only FDA approved microneedling device, can help diminish the appearance of large pores. The SkinPen creates micro injuries in the skin triggering the body's own immune response. This response naturally produces collagen and elastin. The collagen and elastin help to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of large pores.
Facial scarring, and especially acne scarring, can be a problematic issue for many people. The SkinPen helps scarring by causing micro-injuries to the skin to trigger the body's immune system to remodel the scar tissue. The scar remodeling occurs while still ensuring the skins overall structure is still intact. During a six month clinical trial the use of the SkinPen helped to improve acne scars in 90% of patients.
