Micro-Needling offers maximum results with less downtime than other more invasive procedures. Skin Pen II stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin.
Skin Pen II accelerates this repair process by creating microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. New Collagen and Elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.

One of the most exciting things about Skin Pen II is that it can be used on all types of skin for a wide range of problems, including acne scars and any area requiring cell regeneration or an intense repair process.
Skin Pen II is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes Skin Pen II especially helpful when addressing acne scars and stretch marks.
A thin layer of serum is applied to the skin and the appropriate treatment is selected for each particular type of skin. Then the pen glides across the repair area in a gentle motion.
The unique design of Skin Pen II allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment quite comfortable for most patients.
Our qualified staff applies a numbing agent to the skin for about 30 minutes which increases comfort during the procedure. Once that is removed the treatment typically takes 15-30 minutes, depending upon the size of the area and the severity of skin damage.
Immediately following the treatment, you will notice a healthy pink glow. Your skincare professional will recommend products to aid your skin’s natural healing process. Total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the repair process required. On average, patients are pink for two to four days.
Most people notice healthier looking skin within five to seven days and the natural repair process of the skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal Collagen Remodeling takes place over time, and it will continue to improve for up to six months after your final treatment.
The course of treatment will be determined by your skincare professional based upon your individual treatment goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of three treatments spaced about four weeks apart. For patients with more severe skin issues, additional sessions may be necessary.
