Micro-needling is a process whereby controlled micro-injuries are created to initiate breakdown of damaged tissue and stimulate the production of healthy new cells, organised collagen and elastin. As collagen starts to decline in our mid 20s, micro-needling with SkinPen can help optimise cellular function and revitalise our skin. It is suitable for all skin types and can help to support a variety of skin rejuvenation concerns including:
- Ageing (face, neck, hands)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Melasma (persistent pigmentation)
- Hair thinning ◦ Stretch marks
SkinPen can therefore be used as a standalone treatment or as a combined therapy alongside your usual injectable treatments, chemical peels and Obagi Medical Skincare. Multiple treatments are recommended at an interval of 4-6 weeks apart. This may range from 2-6 total treatments depending on your skin concerns and goals. SkinPen is the first completely sealed micro-needling device on the market to prevent fluid intake, which puts your safety at the forefront due to zero chance of cross-contamination. SkinPen is also the only FDA cleared, CE Certified 1 device that is also ISO compliant and holds the BSI Kitemark certification. No other micro-needling device in the UK holds all four of these certifications together.
