As we age, the production of collagen and elastin naturally diminish, leading to wrinkles, skin laxity and other signs of aging.
The SkinPen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool to address acne scars and the symptoms of aging. SkinPen Micro Therapy is a highly effective treatment that helps to reduce the signs of aging and enhance your skin's appearance by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. In this way, SkinPen can also be used to decrease the appearance of stretch marks on the body.
How SkinPen Microneedling Procedures Work
Each of our bodies has innate processes that will react to injury by producing new cells and extracellular materials (like elastin and collagen) to heal the damage. That is how the SkinPen achieves its results; by taking advantage of that natural process through the implementation of a finely tuned microneedling device, the SkinPen. This device initiates your natural healing process by creating hundreds of temporary micro-sized openings, or micro-channels, in the skin. These “fractionated” micro-channels are created thanks to the brilliant design of the SkinPen’s disposable needle cartridge, which achieves its work without any thermal energy or chemicals applied to the skin.
Benefits of Fractionated Approach
- Fast and safe method for inducing the production of collagen
- Requires no thermal energy and is entirely non-ablative (no removal of skin)
- Promotes scar-free healing
- Safe for all skin-types
- No major downtime
What to Expect After SkinPen Procedures
You can expect to experience effects similar to a mild sunburns after the procedure; typically some redness, tenderness and some swelling. Despite that, there is no significant downtime after a SkinPen procedure. Patients can return to normal activities and conceal most of the mild side effects with make-up after just one day.
Microneedling Results with SkinPen
Since everyone’s genetic makeup and needs are different, procedure requirements and SkinPen results will vary. The number of sessions required and the depth of treatment will depend on what goals/results you would like to achieve.
Custom Sessions Produce Desired Results
While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal microneedling results, noticeable changes are typically seen just one week following treatment and gradually improve as the body's healing process promotes the production of healthy, new cells and extracellular substances (e.g., collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid).
Patients with uneven skin tone and fine lines may see SkinPen results after just one procedure, while those looking to soften the appearance of acne scarring may require several procedures.
- Minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars.
- Reduce pore size.
- Produce radiant, even-toned skin.
- Diminishes the appearance of scars and stretch marks on the body.
MesoPen Microneedling can help turn back the hands of time! This service can address wrinkles, fine lines, age and sun spots, uneven skin tone or even scarring on your face.
During the procedure, tiny needles create controlled micro-injuries to the skin which triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal damage.
The Vampire Facial is a non-surgical, no downtime form of facial rejuvenation that uses your own natural blood cells to lift and restore the healthy glow to the skin of the face.
The Vampire Facial improves your skin without invasive surgery. It aims to make the skin appear younger with more volume, better color, and a healthy glow. Although some may have a subtle change the results can be impressive leaving you with a more youthful complexion and a radiant glow in the twilight!
Good candidates for this procedure are men and women who are not looking for the dramatic results of a face lift or would never consider any other injectable fillers. Clients who are looking to give their face a more youthful and natural appearance are ideal candidates for the Vampire Facial.
How does the Vampire Facial work?
The procedure starts with blood being drawn from the patient. The blood is taken the same way it would be for a normal blood test. Once blood has been collected, it is then centrifuged and the platelets are separated from the red blood cells.
The platelets are then introduced to a calcium chloride solution which causes the platelets to release growth factors. A microneedling system is then used to re-introduce the formula into your skin, resulting in a radiant glow and more youthful appearance.

Many skin imperfections, that might have otherwise been treated with lasers or IPL, can be addressed with a series of microneedling treatments. Treatments are non-ablative, do not cause trauma to the skin, and are a safe, effective tool in an anti-aging skin care regimen. Sun avoidance is not required after treatment, however sun protection is always recommended.
Each treatment is administered using an individually packaged needle cartridge that features a patented silicone sleeve which prevents cross-contamination of the pen, ensuring the highest safety for both the user and you. The procedure creates superficial micro-channels which allow better absorption of topical gels, creams and serums.
A series of 4 treatments, each spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended for best results. Some patients may require less treatments while those with deep wrinkles or acne scars may need more treatments.
