SkinPen® Microneedling

Using SkinPen® technology, we stimulate your body’s natural healing ability to help improve the health and appearance of your skin from the inside out.

What is Microneedling?

With ageing, the outer skin layer (epidermis) thins, forming fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and uneven skin texture.

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses thin needles to make tiny holes in your epidermis. These needles create micro-injuries, which trigger the body to produce collagen and elastin – two proteins that contribute to skin firmness and smoothness.

The skin’s natural healing process results forms new cells that support the skin’s underlying tissue. The goal of microneedling treatment is an improved skin appearance and texture without causing scar tissue formation.

SkinPen® for Collagen Stimulation Therapy

At SKIN2, we use an innovative microneedling device called SkinPen®. This clinically-tested and proven device provides safe collagen stimulation therapy to promote your body’s natural healing without using chemicals, heat, or stress.
SkinPen® microneedling treatment is our skin rejuvenation modality of choice. It can achieve visible results in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, repairing sun-damaged skin, treating scarring, tightening slackened skin, evening out skin tone, and reducing the visibility of dilated blood vessels.

The Skin's Natural Healing Response

As the SkinPen® penetrates the skin surface, this triggers the skin’s natural wound-healing process to increase blood flow and activate the creation of new tissue. Additionally, tissue remodelling of new skin is rich in collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins improve skin quality, visibly reducing facial acne scars, neck wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation, leaving skin more smooth, radiant, and younger-looking.

Which Areas Does SkinPen® Microneedling Treat?

SkinPen®‘s variable needle depth allows for maximum versatility, making it safe and effective on many parts of the body, including the face, neck, hands, and décolletage.

SkinPen® Treatment at Our Wokingham, Berkshire Practice

Patient comfort guides every treatment at SKIN2 – we always have a consultation to pair you with the best cosmetic treatment that suits your needs. A trained practitioner performs each of our facial aesthetics treatments, and your appointment takes place in a relaxed atmosphere.

We apply topical anesthetic to the treatment area during your appointment to numb the discomfort. Generally, patients report feeling only the slight vibration of the SkinPen® during the treatment.

We carefully and skillfully glide the SkinPen® across the treatment area using the Skinfuse LIFT HG. This non-cytotoxic hydrogel supports wound healing, hydrates the skin, and balances pH during and after your microneedling appointment.

We Often Recommend Multiple Treatments

We typically recommend six SkinPen® Treatments spaced at least four weeks apart over nine months to achieve the optimum results.
You should continue to see improvement in your skin for three to six months after treatment as new collagen grows, giving your skin a healthier appearance. To maintain your results after your first series of treatments, we recommend a SkinPen® treatment every four to six months.

Is There Downtime After Microneedling?

Following your microneedling appointment, many patients can return to their normal activities within 24 hours. The total healing time following the appointment depends on the individual. Most patients have slight swelling and redness/pinkness, resembling a mild to moderate sunburn. Often, this complexion lasts for two to four days following the procedure.

Full Results Take Time

The natural repair process of your skin continues to progress over several weeks. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period will not disappear immediately. Many patients say they notice an improvement approximately a month post-treatment. However, you may not see results for up to six months following your final session. Individual results will vary.
