SkinPen is a medical micro-needling device. Only available to clinics with medical supervision.
Micro-needling is a form of collagen induction therapy, using tiny needles to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response. In this response, new tissue and skin cells are formed, producing significant improvements to the tone and texture of the skin.
SkinPen is the only needling device recognised by the TGA and cleared by FDA, ensuring the highest class of sterility and depth precision. Compared to other needling treatments, SkinPen is safer, producing more dramatic results, with less downtime.
BENEFITS OF SKINPEN:
- Stimulates cell multiplication and collagen remodelling.
- Breaks down scar tissue to repair acne scarring or surgical scars.
- Harmonises pigmentation and discolouration.
- The treatment can be performed at different depths to target specific problem areas.
- Minimal downtime required after the treatment compared to other rejuvenation treatments.
- As SkinPen does not use any active ingredients or laser/light therapy, it is a recommended treatment for sensitive skins, darker skin tones and acne.

HOW MANY SKINPEN TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments required will depend on your individual skin type and concern. Generally, best results come from 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. A custom treatment plan that's right for you will be advised at your consultation.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY SKINPEN TREATMENT?
Firstly, you'll speak to one of our trained skin technician about your background and medical history. Your skin will be assessed and the skin technician will ensure that the SkinPen treatment will fulfil your goals.
AT YOUR SKINPEN APPOINTMENT:
Our skin technician moves the SkinPen hand-piece around the face, gently stamping the skin to stimulate cell production and skin repair. Unlike other micro-needling treatments, SkinPen does not promote bleeding. Redness is normal, indicating a good result and will subside quickly. The procedure takes 30 minutes in total.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY SKIN PEN TREATMENT?
After your SkinPen session you may notice redness, some tingling and the sensation of heat, similar to that of mild sunburn. This will subside within 24-48 hours. The real results become evident after a week, with improvement in skin tone and texture. Effects on pigmentation and scarring will continue to improve with every treatment.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST TREATMENT?
You should avoid the following for at least 24 hours:
- Strenuous exercise
- Consumption of alcohol
It is also recommended to avoid the following for two weeks:
- Extended exposure to sun or uv light
- Extended exposure to heat or freezing temperatures
Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching on the treatment area. If you have swelling you can apply an ice pack for a brief period to help with discomfort.
We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent sun damage to the skin. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or above should be used daily. If you are under the sun for prolonged periods of time, sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least once every two hours.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR:
Chronic skin disorders
Blood clotting problems
Severe solar keratosis
Raised moles or warts
Herpes outbreaks or any other skin inflammation
Areas of sunburn, open cuts or other sore and tender areas
