We could all use a little extra help when it comes to the health of our skin. It’s why we love SkinPen. The SkinPen device is the first microneedling device in the world cleared by the FDA. Learn more about it by reading the FAQs below.
It’s ultimately a pen, where the tip is made up of tiny needles that is glided across the desired treatment area to create micro injuries which then stimulates the body’s natural process to produce more collagen and elastin. Topical anesthesia is typically applied to skin prior to treatment.

The tiny channels that are created in the skin also make it easier for better product penetration into the skin. Your certified aesthetician will review your products with you at the time of consultation and make any recommendations necessary for you to get the most out of your treatment.
