What is MicroNeedling (SkinPen)?

Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is the process of  creating microwounds in the top layer of the skin. These tiny wounds stimulate cell turnover and collagen and elastin production, which results in firmer, more supple skin.

SkinPen®  by Bellus Medical is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up. With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment – and step out with confidence.1

What to Expect?

A plan for optimal results
Your physician may recommend a course of procedures based on your individual goals. Maintenance of your procedure might require multiple treatments.

A comfortable procedure
Based on your needs, your physician will likely apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area.

Soothing aftercare
Your clinician will provide Skinfuse® LIFT, a clean, non-cytotoxic hydrogel used to prevent the skin from drying out post-treatment along with Medical grade skin care to help speed healing time and promote more effective collagen rebuilding during and in between treatments.

A short procedure time
The treatment will likely take about 30 minutes.

A mild sensation 
Most patients report feeling only the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.

Minimal post-procedure effects 
The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over time without any further complications. Please see patient labeling for detailed safety information.

How it Works?

It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.1

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

  • Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.1


More FAQs

Is it safe?

Yes, by design. SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures.1 That’s part of the reason SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device.

Who should not use it?

SkinPen should not be used on patients who have active skin cancer in the treatment area(s); open wounds, sores, or irritated skin in the treatment area(s); an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetics; a hemorrhagic (bleeding) disorder or hemostatic (bleeding) dysfunction; are pregnant or nursing; or are currently taking drugs with the ingredient isotretinoin (such as Accutane).
