Say goodbye to wrinkles and acne scars!

What is it?  The SkinPen® Precision System is the first FDA-cleared device clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles on the neck and facial acne scars. 


How does it work?  The SkinPen Precision System delivers its results by creating millions of controlled micro-injuries in the skin, eliciting the body’s natural wound healing cascade this process begins with injury and inflammation, then tissue proliferation, and ultimately results in tissue remodeling, including new collagen and elastin. SkinPen is approved for use on patients 22 years old and above.

  • After numbing we will begin treatment targeted to your specific concerns and needs.
  • Some discomfort is expected but we have multiple tools to help guide you through the treatment.

Post Care

  • Immediately after treatment, most patients will experience erythema (redness) for 1-3 days, however for more aggressive treatments this may last longer. Slight to moderate edema (swelling) and a mild to moderate sunburn sensation are also common post treatment and may last 1-3 days. Skin may crust and peel for 2-7 days depending on treatment settings.
  • Before discharge a topical ointment may be applied to the face. No bandages or wraps are necessary.
  • There are no restrictions on bathing except to treat the skin gently, avoid scrubbing or trauma to the treated area.
  • Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation.
  • The use of a zinc oxide sunblock SPF 30+ at all times after 24-48 hours.
  • Multiple treatments over a period of several months may be required to achieve the desired response.
  • Avoid icing the area for 48 hours.
What should I expect following the treatment? 

Possible treatment responses include dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions will resolve over time without any further complications. Within the first 72 hours post-treatment you should avoid sweaty exercise and sun exposure. Exposure to these conditions could lead to: itching, burning, stinging, and tingling), scaling/dryness, redness, swelling, and tenderness/discomfort.

How many treatments will I need?

You should discuss treatment goals with your provider.  Depending on the desired results, we recommend a series of 3 – 4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
