The SkinPen® is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, stretch marks, scars, pore size and texture on the face and body. It can also improve hyperpigmentation as well, but to a more limited extent.
The SkinPen microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin, giving the skin a more refreshed appearance.
