Improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars

SkinPen Microneedling


What is SkinPen Microneedling?

SkinPen is medical grade microneedling that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and smooth out wrinkles. It is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars (for ages 22+) and it is safe and effective on all skin tones and skin types.

The microneedling “pen” creates “micro” punctures in the skin that utilizes the body’s healing response which boosts the production of collagen and elastin. SkinPen is a minimally-invasive treatment with little downtime.


At least three SkinPen treatments are recommended for best results, typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Your medical provider can help you decide how many treatments would produce optimal results.

Patient's Story

"My before photo was March 2020 and the after photo is 11/25/20. I’ve had Botox done 3 times so far and my deep 11 line is gone!!! That was my worst wrinkle and the doctor said Botox would fix me. I thought I was going to need filler for it. Very happy I look less angry lol!"

Frequently Asked Questions


  • SkinPen is minimally invasive, with little downtime.
  • It can treat a range of issues, from acne scarring and large pores to fine lines and hyperpigmentation.
  • Unlike some other microneedling devices, SkinPen can be safely used on all skin tones and skin types.
  • With a range of needle sizes and depths, SkinPen is extremely customizable and can be altered to address different issues.


  • Your skin will be red immediately after treatment, and you might experience dryness, tightness, itchiness, and burning as side effects. 
  • The procedure is not recommended for people with active acne or people taking certain acne medications.

Prior to your SkinPen treatment, your medical provider will put topical numbing cream on the treatment area. Most patients feel that the microneedling treatment is well-tolerated with numbing cream.

Immediately after the treatment you may experience effects similar to a mild sunburn – redness, tenderness, and some swelling. After 24 hours, most patients can return to normal activities and conceal any side effects with a mineral-based sunscreen. Some patients may experience a very mild peeling 3 or 4 days after the initial treatment. Your medical provider will give you instructions on how to care for your skin when it is healing.

Initial results can sometimes be seen within a week of your first treatment, but since the skin conditions often being treated—acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation—are often rooted deep in the dermis, it can take longer to see optimal results. Plus, it takes time for your body to undergo its skin-rejuvenating repair process. More dramatic results will not be visible until 4 or more weeks after treatment.

After your series of treatments is complete, continued maintenance is recommended, which might mean doing a SkinPen treatment quarterly or biannually, to maximize and extend results.
