The Benefits of SkinPen You Need to Know

Microneedling has been gaining popularity in recent years as a safe and effective cosmetic treatment that can dramatically improve the skin’s appearance.

It works by creating tiny microinjuries to the skin surface in a controlled manner. These microinjuries are not visible to the naked eye, but they are enough to trigger the body's healing response, which includes the production of new collagen and elastin.

Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin, as they help to support the skin's structure and keep it firm, bright, plump, and smooth.

With a wide range of benefits, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin texture and tone, and boosting product absorption, microneedling has become a go-to treatment for those looking to achieve visible skin improvement.


SkinPen is a medical-grade microneedling device that is designed to meet strict safety standards. While there are other microneedling devices on the market, we choose SkinPen because it offers several benefits that set it apart from other options:

SkinPen has undergone extensive testing to ensure that it is safe and effective for use on all skin types and colours and is the only mechanical microneedling device to hold all 4 certifications: FDA-approved, CE Mark Medical Grade Device, ISO certified for quality and assurance & British Standards Institute certified.

Adjustable depth settings to customise the treatment for each patient's unique needs. This allows for precise targeting of specific areas of concern.

High-quality, sterile needles that are only used once and then discarded, which helps to minimise discomfort and reduce the risk of infection. SkinPen is the only microneedling device with an ultrasonically sealed base, therefore preventing bodily fluid from entering the pen, eliminating the risk of any cross contamination.

Can be used on all areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, and back.

While our SkinPen Precision can be used to simply refresh the skin, improve overall texture and give a year-round glow, it’s also the only FDA-cleared microneedling device in the world that has the CE Mark to treat the following conditions for all skin types:

Acne scars
After a breakout, many are left with depressed scarring, which can be filled and smoothed out by new collagen induced by SkinPen's controlled micro-channels.

Surgical scars
Speed up your skin’s natural wound healing process with SkinPen to reduce the appearance of post-surgery scars.

Fine lines and wrinkles
One of the most significant benefits of SkinPen is its ability to stimulate collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

SkinPen stimulates the skin’s turnover of keratinocytes to reprogram hyperactive melanocytes in the pigmented areas - in other words, it  reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation by stimulating the production of new skin cells and breaking up pigmented cells.

SkinPen Precision induces the activation and migration of melanocytes into vitiligo patches to reduce the appearance of hypopigmentation.

Sun & age spots
As with melasma, SkinPen lightens the appearance of these dark spots by promoting the skin’s keratinocyte turnover.

SkinPen Precision  is a non-invasive procedure that doesn't require downtime, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. It can provide long-lasting results, as the new collagen and elastin fibres that are produced during the healing process can continue to improve the skin's appearance for several months after the treatment.
