Micro-needling is a procedure to trigger the body's natural ability to repair itself. As we age we lose collagen and this results in lines, wrinkles, large pores an uneven texture and dull looking skin.
By using SkinPen Precision we create thousands of controlled micro-injuries to the skin surface to stimulate the natural healing process.
SkinPen is excellent for improving fine lines, wrinkles in those areas that are prone to ageing, such as the face, neck decolletage and hands.
SkinPen is also shown to dramatically improve acne scars over a course of treatments.
SkinPen Precision is the only Microneedling pen that is FDA approved, providing additional safety and protection from cross contamination.
