MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses thin needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of your skin.

The automated SkinPen device utilizes a disposable tip containing 11 microneedles. This cartridge is used to vertically stamp the skin at high speed to stimulate collagen production. The SkinPen tip creates micro-injuries that encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes. The SkinPen is as safe and effective as a fractional laser or intense pulsed light but with significantly shorter recovery period. You can treat your face, neck, décolleté, or any area of concern. A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended, spacing each treatment 4 weeks apart.


  • The damage helps stimulate your skin’s healing process, so it produces more collagen and elastin. These proteins keep your skin firm and smooth.

  • Safe for all skin types.

  • Creates thousands of microchannels in the skin for maximum product penetration.

  • Great option for skin with severe melasma.

  • Minimal downtime! 24 hours of redness (comparable to a sunburn).

  • Recommend 3-4 treatments, spaced 1 month apart.
