Treatment with the SkinPen can last from thirty to sixty minutes, depending on the area receiving treatment, the skin concern facing resolution through this process, and the results desired by the client. The treatment is generally described as mildly uncomfortable at most, due to the nature of the procedure – and is considered to be more comfortable than many other micro-needling treatments due to the SkinPen’s high-speed needle motor for swift skin penetration.
Generally, three to four sessions with the SkinPen are undertaken four to six weeks apart for best results. However, the number of treatments required for optimum results with depend on the severity of the skin concern and the results desired – and this will be determined during your consultation with Dr. Natalia Hancock at Skintique Clinic to establish a bespoke treatment plan that is unique to you.
Your skin’s natural repair process will begin as early as your treatment session, and, over the course of several weeks, you will notice improvement in the condition and appearance of your skin, such as a more desirable skin surface, tone and texture – plus a reduction in the visibility of lines and blemishes
The results achieved will be determined by the severity of the skin concern, the number of sessions undertaken, and your overall skin health – and may not come to full fruition until up to six months after your final session with the SkinPen.

These tiny punctures – or ‘micro-injuries’ – stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal wounds, encouraging the production of collagen and healthy new tissue – minimising cellular damage and change to the structure of the skin. This healing process leads to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scarring across the face and body.
The SkinPen system is considered a highly beneficial, safe and natural choice for the resolution of various skin concerns, involving no heat, toxins, or chemicals to remove layers of the skin.
It is regarded as a highly efficient treatment option due to the efficiency of the system in contrast with the minimal resultant downtine and side effects it produces. Post-procedure, many clients may experience temporary redness and skin sensitivity similar to that of a mild sunburn for up to 72 hours, and are recommended to keep the treated areas hydrated and protected from sun exposure as they heal.
