What is SkinPen?

SkinPen, the pioneering microneedling device approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), offers a breakthrough solution for treating acne scars. Additionally, it effectively addresses hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, neck wrinkles, and surgical scars in individuals aged 22 and above.

This minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment utilizes a pen-like handpiece equipped with 14 fine microneedles that gently penetrate the skin’s surface, generating thousands of microinjuries. These controlled punctures trigger the body’s natural healing response, releasing growth factors and stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, hence earning the moniker “collagen-induction therapy.”

For optimal outcomes, a series of at least three SkinPen sessions is recommended. Each session, lasting between 15 to 30 minutes, can be customized based on the treatment area’s size. Typically, appointments are spaced three to six weeks apart to allow for proper healing and collagen remodeling.

One of the standout features of SkinPen treatment is its minimal downtime. Unlike some alternative microneedling methods, SkinPen is safe for use on all skin tones and types, making it an inclusive and versatile option for skin rejuvenation.

What are the pros and cons of SkinPen?


  • SkinPen offers minimally invasive treatment with minimal downtime.
  • It effectively addresses various skin concerns, including acne scarring, large pores, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
  • Unlike certain other microneedling devices, SkinPen is safe for use on all skin tones and types.
  • Featuring a range of needle sizes and depths, SkinPen provides high customization, allowing tailored treatment for different skin issues.


  • Following the procedure, expect immediate redness along with potential side effects such as dryness, tightness, itchiness, and burning sensations.
  • Post-procedural marks may occur; there have been reports suggesting that these marks could be permanent, emphasizing the importance of seeking treatment from a skilled practitioner to minimize risks.
  • Individuals with active acne or those taking specific acne medications should avoid undergoing the procedure.
  • Results from SkinPen treatments are typically subtle and may require multiple sessions to achieve noticeable improvements.

How much does SkinPen cost?

For optimal results, a recommended series of three sessions can amplify the transformative effects, ensuring a comprehensive approach to skin improvement.

What happens during a SkinPen microneedling treatment?

During your appointment at Direct Aesthetics, your face will undergo cleansing, followed by the application of a topical numbing cream.

Once the SkinPen treatment begins, you will likely experience minimal discomfort as the device is moved across your skin. With needles ranging from .5 mm to 3 mm, your provider can adjust the depth based on your specific skin concerns and the treatment area.

Following the procedure, a calming serum will be applied to soothe the skin. While some redness and tenderness may be present, it typically subsides within 24 hours.

You can resume your regular activities immediately, but it’s advisable to avoid heavy makeup and excessive sweating for the first day or two. Additionally, applying sunscreen with physical blockers like zinc oxide or titanium oxide is essential post-treatment.

How soon will you see SkinPen results?

Initial improvements may become apparent within a week of your initial treatment; however, since the targeted skin conditions such as acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation are often entrenched deep within the dermis, achieving optimal results may require more time. Additionally, the body’s natural skin rejuvenation process takes time to unfold.

Following the completion of your treatment series, ongoing maintenance is advisable. This may entail undergoing SkinPen treatments on a quarterly or biannual basis to prolong and enhance results.

Between treatments, it’s important to avoid using any at-home microneedling devices without consulting Direct Aesthetics first. Improper usage can easily lead to skin damage and compromise texture.

Will SkinPen work for me?

SkinPen has been clinically shown to be effective for all skin types. With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.

  • 94% of patients noticed an improvement in how their neck wrinkles looked at one-month post treatment. 
  • 90% of acne scar clinical trial subjects would recommend to friends and family.
