Pre Treatment Care:
  • Do not use any sun-sensitive medications such as Retin-A, Retinol, Tretinoin or more  for at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
  • Patients should not have any makeup, lotions, creams, etc. on treatment area the day of the treatment.
  • The treatment area should not be sunburned or tanned.
  • If the patient has an acne breakout right before treatment, the micro needling will need to be delayed until it clears.
 
  Post-treatment effects:  
  Day 1: You will experience mild to moderate swelling and redness, similar to a sunburn. There may be some mild bruising. Do not ice after, apply sunscreen or makeup for 12 hours after treatment because the skinís channels are open.  
     
  Day 2: There still may be some persisting redness, but all redness, bruising and swelling should be fading.  
     
  Day 3: Most redness and swelling should be almost gone. You should appear normal with makeup applied.  
     
  Day 4: Skin should appear normal at this point with some minor swelling, some feel that this is an initial boosting benefit.

Other important post-care information:
  • The SkinPen may trigger cold sores. Please keep this in mind and have medication prior or on hand if you are prone to cold sores.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 1 week.
  • Do not use Retin-A or other sun sensitive medications for 3-4 days.
 
Technique Benefits
Opposed to other skin rejuvenation techniques, the SkinPen uses the bodyís natural power of healing. It uses the bodyís natural healing process to enhance collagen production, achieving amazing results. The process may take less sessions than other methods.
 
     
  The SkinPenís Design  
  The SkinPenís needles range from .25mm - 2.5 mm in length. This is key because the technician can adjust the treatment based on the patientís skin condition and treatment (deeper penetration is needed for acne, burn or surgical scars).

  • Micro Needling is also known as CIT or Collagen Induction Therapy, which is an FDA-approved anti-aging treatment
  • Micro Needling can be done almost anywhere on the body

  • The Skin Penís microneedles help treat wrinkles, stretch marks, clogged pores and age spots with no injections
