As our skin ages, our production of elastin and collagen decreases, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skintone. SkinPen is a clinically proven treatment used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as for acne scarring, stretch marks, and melasma. Your skin will have an amazing glow, with skin and pore tightening effects as well.
Our SkinPen device is the only TGA-approved device in Australia that is clinically proven to treat skin concerns. It utilises microscopic medical-grade steel to penetrate the skin and create micro-injuries while minimising cellular damage. This in turn induces the repairing process to stimulate collagen and elastin to your skin.
A thorough history will be taken and your skin will then be assessed to recommend a customised plan for you by our Cosmetic Physician and Registered Nurse. Before starting your treatment, your skin will be cleansed twice and degreased with alcohol. A single-use needle tip will then be attached to the SkinPen before doing passes on your skin. Numbing cream can be applied 30-40min before your procedure, however, this is optional as the treatment can be quite tolerable. A post-care kit is prescribed after every session to ensure your skin is properly managed after treatment. Depending on your skin type, your skin may need to be prepped at least 2 weeks before your first treatment with a customised serum to reduce complications such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Your skin should appear smoother with a more even skintone. Fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation will also be improved, as well as tighter and more taut skin. Acne scarring will also dramatically improve, with amazing results in pore tightening as well.
Expected side effects include erythema and mild petechiae that may last 2-3 days. Your skin may feel slightly warm to touch which is expected, and you may experience mild breakouts as the SkinPen is stimulating your skin.
Results vary depending on your skin type, condition, desired results, and lifestyle. Generally, 3 treatments are required every 4 weeks for rejuvenation, and potentially more than 6 treatments for acne scarring, stretch marks, deep lines, and melasma. Yearly maintenance treatments are recommended to maintain results as the ageing process is inevitable.
Avoiding sun exposure is essential to maintain results and prevent complications, as well as reapplying SPF 50+ sunscreen every 2 hours when outdoors. Do not apply sunscreen for 24hours after your treatment. Avoid strenuous exercise and heat-inducing activities at least 2 days after treatments, and avoid other dermal treatments for 2 weeks as well after treatment. If needed, brightening serums need to be continued 5 days after treatment to maintain results and prevent complications. Active skincare (Vitamin A, Vitamin C, acids etc) is also essential to enhance and maintain results, however, do not apply active skincare for 5 days after treatment.
