SkinPen Precision Microneedling

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as microneedling, is an aesthetic medical procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny sterile needles in order to induce tissue remodelling via internally producing collagen to directly affect the skin.

SkinPen Precision is the only 100% completely sealed cartridge device on the market to prevent fluid intake. This is essential for client safety as no body fluids can enter the SkinPen’s base. It has undergone long clinical trials to get the American FDA approval and is the only pen to have done that.

There are 14 precision medical grade needles with no hooks or varying lengths to tear the skin. Around 98,000 micro channels are created per minute. Unlike Dermaroller, the micro channels created by SkinPen cause the right type of injury to the skin.

Blood flows to the treated area, neutrophils and macrophages clean out any debris or bacteria. New blood cells form from pre-existing blood cells, this physiological process is known as Angiogenesis.

The process then stimulates the migration of fibroblasts from surrounding areas as well as stimulating new fibroblasts.This new tissue development is Type III collagen, wound healing collagen, which is immature collagen. This collagen is still maturing 30 days later, it peaks at day 30, as it turns to Type I collagen.

This is the best form of collagen for anti ageing that we need for our skin.

SkinPen microneedling is considered the latest technology. Post treatment there is a quick 48 hour recovery period, with little or no downtime.

Ideal to treat fine lines, wrinkles and scars. It is also safe for all skin types.

This is an organic, natural way to improve your skin's health, with the skin glowing two weeks after treatment.

The skin looks healthier without heavy make up, a good broad spectrum sunscreen with a tint is all you need. Alumier's Moisture Matt or the tinted Sheer Hydration would be ideal products to use post treatment.

FAQs about SkinPen Precision Microneedling

Is the SkinPen treatment painful?

A topical cream is applied to numb the area around 45 minutes before the treatment is carried out, there may be slight discomfort during the procedure.

What can you treat with the SkinPen Precision Device?

The treatment works well on acne scarring, pitted skin, ageing skin, pigmented skin or stretch marks. Results depend on the severity of the condition. The face, neck, décolleté are popular areas to treat, but the SkinPen could also be used to treat ageing skin on the backs of the hands or stretch marks on other parts of the body. If you are unsure then this can be addressed in the consultation for the treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Generally a course of 3-6 treatments are needed to get the best results. For treatments such as those on deeper acne scarring, pitted skin or stretch marks treatment are normally carried out at 6 weekly intervals as there is a longer recovery period, and these issues generally take longer to see overall results. For general skin rejuvenation the treatments are at 4 weekly intervals.

Will I be able to go back to work after treatment?

The skin will appear very red after treatment and may feel sensitive, if an area such as the décolleté was being treated then this could be covered and you may return to work. You are not able to apply make up to the face for 24 hours after the procedure so you may not wish to return to work until the skin had returned to normal. This normally happens within 24-48 hours.

What is the aftercare advice?

Always make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area, the holes remain open for several hours post treatment and may give rise to infection from non sterile contact.

Use a soothing cleanser on facial area following treatment. The skin may feel drier than normal post treatment. Hyaluronic Acid is used during and after the treatment, it’s an ideal ingredient to hydrate and restore the skin balance. No make up to be applied for 24 hours post treatment. Make sure the area is covered with a broad spectrum SPF 40 to protect the skin.

No active skincare such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids or Retinol (Vitamin A) should be used for at least 2 days post treatment.

Will there be much blood?

The SkinPen Precision device does not need to draw blood to get the results, there is very little blood during or post treatment.
