Who is it suitable for?
SkinPen® microneedling is recommended for all skin types 1-6, including the most sensitive of skins.
The optimal number of treatments depends on the condition you’re seeking to address. Some conditions may require 3 treatments, while others such as scarring require a minimum of 6 treatments. For best value and results, our Skin Journeys™ combine in-clinic treatments with at-home skincare.
Post treatment, your skin may look as though it has sunburn. How long the redness lasts depends on the individual, but most clients see a reduction after 24 to 48 hours. Some dryness, pinpoint bleeding and bruising may also be present, which is entirely normal and will resolve within a few days. Your treatment includes an aftercare take-home kit to soothe, calm and heal the skin.
Does it hurt?
SkinPen® is an intensive treatment that creates incredible results, and for some clients it does come with some discomfort. Topical numbing cream is recommended 30 - 60 minutes prior to the treatment
How long between treatments?
Procedures are spaced 4 weeks apart. Clients usually begin to see the initial results within a week of their first procedure. Radiant skin is apparent as the deeper skin continues its natural healing process.
Avoid excessive sun exposure two weeks before and after your SkinPen® treatment.
Cosmetic Injecting clients should leave two weeks between their last cosmetic injecting treatment and SkinPen®. If you’re prone to hay fever or eczema, take anti-histamine medication prior to treatment.
We recommend applying a topical numbing cream 30 - 60 minutes prior to your treatment to make it more comfortable, which can be purchased from your local pharmacy.
Following your SkinPen treatment, the following aftercare will help to heal, hydrate and protect the skin.

What are the benefits of SkinPen®?
SkinPen® is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks and pigment issues. SkinPen® triggers the skin’s natural healing response, resulting in skin rejuvenation through collagen induction and cell regeneration.
What skin types does SkinPen® treat?
Unlike many other skin renewal options, SkinPen® is safe and effective for almost every skin colour and type. The SkinPen® treatment can be tailored to your skin’s needs and has minimal side effects.
What should I expect after my treatment?
There may be pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising for a couple of days. Within a few days, you will notice a smoother, brighter and more radiant appearance – however, the full effects of the treatment do not appear until several months later.
Does SkinPen® hurt?
It does depend on your individual pain threshold. Some people don’t find it hurt at all, while others can find it uncomfortable. Topical numbing cream is recommend for your comfort.
Is SkinPen® safe?
Yes, SkinPen® is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration. The tip of the pen holds a series of tiny surgical steel needles which pierce the skin. The needle cartridge is disposable and individual to each client, and the SkinPen® itself is designed to minimise the risk of contamination.
What is the treatment time and frequency?
SkinPen® microneedling is an intensive 30-minute procedure. Results may become visible after the procedure, however most clients will require multiple treatments for best results. Some conditions may require three treatments while something like acne scarring most likely requires a minimum of 6 treatments.
