Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses your body’s healing powers to break down old skin and rebuild it with healthy new proteins. The SkinPen®’s single-use surgical needle cartridges create precise, vertical wound channels in your skin that stimulate your body’s healing processes.

The SkinPen only uses disposable single-use needle cartridges, so it’s always sanitary and safe.
The SkinPen harnesses your body’s own healing powers to rebuild stronger, newer, and healthier skin with new collagen and elastin. The process occurs in three phases:
Your body sends blood to the wound channels to disinfect them and remove toxins, debris, and old proteins. The increased circulation helps your skin rebuild itself.
Your skin rebuilds the wound channels with a special type of skin cell called granulation tissue. It also creates new blood vessels to nourish your healing skin.
