What does the treatment do?

During SkinPen® treatment, the device is used to create lots of controlled, very tiny micro-injuries on the skin. These injuries help to kick-start the body’s natural repair process, providing a boost to collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is produced by the body to heal the skin and keep it looking taut, smooth, and youthful. As we age, our skin becomes less capable of producing collagen, contributing to the effects of ageing. When scarring occurs, this is a result of irregular collagen formations during the healing process. By creating new wounds, and generating more collagen within the skin, both ageing and scarring concerns can be treated with SkinPen®.

SkinPen® takes a three-phase approach to rejuvenating the skin. The first phase, known as the inflammation stage, is the treatment itself, involving piercing the skin to trigger collagen production. During this stage, wounds are disinfected, any debris or dirt build up on the skin is removed, and new tissue is created.

The second phase, or the proliferation stage, occurs when the wound is rebuilt using new cells, and a new network of blood vessels develop. Finally, phase three, or the remodelling stage, takes place, and the wound is replaced with new, healthy tissue.

Prior to all SkinPen® treatments, it is important to attend an in-depth consultation with Dr Hiba Injibar, Dermasurge’s founder and experienced consultant dermatologist. Dr Injibar will thoroughly assess the skin and formulate a bespoke treatment plan for the best possible results.
