How does Skin Pen work?
Skin needling creates micro channels within the skin using tiny sterile stainless-steel needles, these needles penetrate the skins surface triggering the wound healing response, stimulating collagen elastin production. This treatment not only helps to reduce scars and wrinkles but has incredible capabilities to help restore integrity and strength to the skin making its suitable for even sensitive skins.
How many treatments do I need?
3 treatments 30 days apart which can continue to show improvements in the skin up to 6 months after your last treatment. (Please note some skin conditions may need more treatment and this is determined in your initial consultation).
How long is the downtime?
First 24 – 48 hours: skin can be pink/red and feels tight and dry. Some blood spotting can also be present depending on the depth of the treatment.
72 hours – Day 14: only use mild/gentle cleansing, hydrating serums physical SPF and moisturizer. During this downtime period it is normal to feel dryer as the skin recovers, and everyone’s skin will recover differently.
