SkinPen® is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art, pen-shaped device that is only available to licensed skincare professionals. The disposable tip of SkinPen® is made of 14 surgical-grade stainless steel needles, which are very small and fine. These needles create a latticework of uniform, controlled micro injuries to your skin to stimulate collagen production and smooth the skin's surface as it heals.
During a SkinPen® treatment, your provider will first apply topical numbing to the treatment area. She will then move the pen across your skin as the needles vibrate to create hundreds of microscopic channels into the dermis. These minor, controlled injuries encourage your skin to begin a healing cycle that boosts collagen and elastin production, two components of our skin that enhance its volume and smoothness. As the skin heals, it becomes firmer, smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking.
SkinPen® can be used to treat the following skin concerns on the face and body:
- Fine lines and wrinkles

- Scar revision (scars must be over one year old)
- Uneven skin texture
- Stretch marks (stretch marks must be over one year old)
