What is SkinPen?

SkinPen Precision is the worlds leading skin remodelling (microneedling) medical device that creates temporary small microscopic channels in your skin. This simple procedure activates your body’s natural skin-healing power to increase collagen and elastin, so your skin returns to a healthier-looking and youthful appearance. Watch your skin look younger and rejuvenated with SkinPen Precision.

How does it work?

SkinPen Precision creates hundreds to thousands of ‘Micro’ skin punctures per
second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process in three simple steps

inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. Together this activate’s the skin’s natural healing process allowing the skin to heal itself, looking more renewed and

Phase 1 – Inflammation
SkinPen’s microneedles penetrate the skin’s surface, triggering a natural immune
response to disinfect, remove debris, increase blood flow, and activate the
creation of new tissue.

Phase 2 – Proliferation
The micro-channels or tiny holes created by SkinPen are rebuilt with new
granulation cells that include collagen proteins. Additionally, a new network of
blood vessels develops.

Phase 3 – Remodeling
New dermal tissues form, rich in collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins
improve skin quality, visibly reducing facial acne scars and neck wrinkles, leaving
skin more smooth, radiant, and younger-looking.

Is it Safe?

Yes, by design. SkinPen’s patented and single use sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind.

SkinPen is also surrounded by a custom-designed BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures. That’s part of the reason SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device.

Does it hurt?

Most people have no problem and say they feel nothing during the treatment as the numbing cream has done its job! However, this depends on the client’s pain threshold and sensitivity levels as sometimes it be slightly uncomfortable but completely manageable.

What does the SkinPen Treatment involve?

Stop using Vitamin A, AHA’s/BHA’s.

Topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) will be applied for 20-30 minutes prior the treatment for additional comfort.

One of our Skin Specialists will carefully assess your skin to establish if you are a candidate and will thoroughly explain the procedure, risks and benefits prior to treatment. The SkinPen is carefully glided across the area of concern using the Skinfuse LIFT HG (Allergy free from cytotoxic) to create hundreds of microscopic puncture wounds which stimulates the natural repair process and activates collagen and elastin production. Erythema should be visible with possible signs of blood spotting, this gives us indication that the depth is at its correct point in order to penetrate deep enough into the skin.

You should avoid touching the area or applying any products onto the skin for 24 hours in order to prevent infection. Post treatment Skinfuse LIFT HG can be applied to help soo* the the area. After 24 hours Skinfuse RESCUE Calming complex can be used to help support remodelling of the skin. The treatment area can be red and warm for 24 to 48 hours post treatment but most patients see a reduction in erythema after 24 hours of treatment.

What is the healing process?

The healing process is the stages the skin goes through after having the treatment. When first having the SkinPen treatment (depending on the area treated), you may experience swelling, heat under the skin, moderate to severe redness and maybe a slightly uncomfortable feeling, depending on the depth of needle used. After 4 hours this will reduce to moderate sunburn, after 24 hours this will reduce to mild sunburn. This will follow with dryness and possible flaking, all will subside over a few days.

What is the aftercare advice following the treatment?
