Skinpen Microneedling

We are delighted to announce the launch of SkinPen at The Treatment Room Bristol, Microneedling is the use of tiny needles to penetrate through the skin to induce a wound healing reaction. This results in hundreds of microchannels created in the skin which increases the delivery of the specialist product and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. This increased production of natural fibres within the skin means the treatment works very well at treating scars such as post acne scarring, stretch marks as well as fine lines and wrinkles, and smoother, firmer, more toned skin.

Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores, but also could be used on the neck, decollete, and scalp.

A series of treatments is usually recommended 4-6 weeks apart, although 1-2 sessions works well as a general skin refreshment. It is suitable for all skin types.

The device uses 14 state of the art smooth Japanese needles in the cartridge tip to boost collagen production and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scars and uneven skin texture. The needles offer super precision sharpness to prevent tearing, often caused by blunt or hooked needles present in other devices and at-home dermarollers.

WHAT MAKES SKINPEN UNIQUE?

SkinPen Precision is the only microneedling device with an ultrasonically sealed base, therefore preventing bodily fluid from entering the pen, eliminating the risk of any cross contamination.

It’s also the only mechanical microneedling device to hold all 4 certifications: FDA-approved, CE Mark Medical Grade Device, ISO certified for quality and assurance & British Standards Institute certified.
