skinpen precision collagen induction therapy

about skinpen precision

The SkinPen Precision device is a market leader in microneedling and collagen induction therapy! 

This device features a set of ultra-fine, sterile needles that work together to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries are incredibly tiny and are strategically made at a precise depth, triggering your skin’s natural healing response.

The controlled micro-injuries initiated by the SkinPen Precision stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins that promote skin elasticity, firmness, and overall health. As your skin heals, it gradually becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking.

What’s impressive is that this device’s precision allows for minimal discomfort and downtime. Typically, you might experience some redness or mild sensitivity after the procedure, but it’s temporary and usually resolves within a few days.

Overall, the SkinPen Precision is a cutting-edge device designed to gently and effectively encourage your skin’s natural rejuvenation process, unveiling a fresher, more radiant complexion over time. Its precision and adaptability make it a valuable tool in the realm of skin rejuvenation.

What makes the SkinPen Precision special is its customisable settings and fully motorised mechanism. The depth and speed of the needles can be adjusted to suit your unique skin concerns and needs. This customisation ensures that the treatment is tailored to address specific areas and concerns, making it versatile and effective for a wider range of skin types and conditions.

A prominent difference between the SkinPen Precision and many devices on the market is the design of the motor. Firstly, the mechanism that pushes and pulls the micro-needles is fully motorised, whereas many devices rely on a spring to retract the needles, which can cause dragging and marking of the skin. Additionally, the motor is encased in each needle cartridge (which are one use per patient); as a result, this means that there’s no wear and tear on the motor after prolonged used. This ensures that every treatment is as efficient and effective as the last.

By creating micro-injuries from the epidermis to the dermis, the SkinPen Precision effectively tricks your skin into upregulating production of collagen and elastin, which are vital in maintaining fresher and younger looking skin. 

SkinPen Precision is FDA Approved to treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Surgical Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Pigmentation conditions


Collagen induction therapy suits nearly all skin types, and doesn’t have to be used to specifically treat an issue, it can be used for general skin health and maintenance!

After just one session with SkinPen Precision, patients notice a difference as soon as six weeks post treatment!

For most skin indications, we recommend a course of three treatments, each spaced 4-6 weeks apart, which can show significant improvement in the skin health.

In the treatment of scars, once the scar tissue has been sufficiently broken down to improve the appearance of the scar – providing no further injury occurs -the results should be permanent. 

However, many factors can affect the results of SkinPen treatments, including; what topical products patients are using, whether they’re effectively protecting themselves from UVA/UVB rays post treatment, if they follow our post treatment guidance, diet, hormones, etc.

Ongoing ageing needs to be taken into account; a patient can’t have a course of treatments in their twenties and expect the results to last for the next ten years. The increase in collagen and elastin production continues for around 4-6 weeks, whereas your natural collagen synthesis decreases at a rate of around 1% per year post 25. The perfect treatment plan focuses on the balance of tackling ageing skin and decreasing skin health, with an appropriate treatment schedule.

This can vary depending on the patient’s needs. When treating specific indications, such as acne scarring, more treatments may be required if the scarring is prominent. 

We usually recommend a course of three sessions initially, each spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and top up treatments at 3, 6 or 12 months for the best results. Many patients tie in their SkinPen Precision collagen induction microneedling treatments alongside their regular toxin treatments or filler procedures!

Initially, we’d recommend a course of three treatments, each spaced 4-6 weeks apart. 

The standard session treating a full face takes approximately 45-60 minutes, taking into account time allocated to numb the area and fill out pre-treatment forms/sign consents. Each additional area adds around 15 minutes to the treatment time.
