Microneedling is trending, and for good reason. Everyone is falling in love with the results! It’s safe, minimally invasive with little to no downtime, and helps improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
SkinPen Precision is an automated, non-surgical microneedling technology device designed for use by licensed healthcare practitioners. SkinPen microneedling, a procedure that stimulates the skin, encouraging it to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. It can also significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, sun damaged, ageing skin, facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles and stretch marks.
How does SkinPen Microneedling work?
SkinPen uses adjustable length, disposable straight needles to penetrate at a 90-degree angle. This adjustability allows for differences in skin thickness and skin types. The vertical technology allows for extra precision. SkinPen organically stimulates the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. As we age the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates. This deterioration leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. SkinPen comfortably creates thousands of controlled micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This process results in the formation and remodelling of collagen, which supports the underlying tissue.
SkinPen’s unique micro needling technology helps to improve damaged or ageing skin by utilising the body’s healing response. The lightweight and ergonomic design of the SkinPen® in conjunction with the vertical delivery of the needles allows doctors to use the device to treat hard-to-reach places that other dermal rollers cannot.
The SkinPen® can specifically target delicate areas around the nose and mouth to assist in the collagen remodelling process. SkinPen® uses sterile, disposable needle cartridges that accommodate all skin types and needs. This specific combination reduces patient downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions
What areas can be treated using SkinPen microneedling?
SkinPen’s variable needle depth allows for maximum versatility, making it safe and effective to use on many parts of the body, including the face, neck and decollate.
What can I expect when I have my microneedling treatment?
At your initial consultation, prior to your treatment, you will meet with your doctor who will spend time going through the exact science behind dermaroller and explaining how it works. She would then review your past medical history to assess your suitability to proceed and agree the areas you want treated. She will talk you through the procedure, answering any questions you might have. Only when and if you are comfortable and ready, will your treatment starts.
The treatment area will be cleansed and your doctor will use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 1 hour for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20-30 minutes for The Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ procedure.
She will then use a sterile single-use Genuine Dermaroller™ medical device, rolled back and forth over the skin to deliver thousands of controlled columns of micro-injuries. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day.
At the end of the treatment your doctor will clean your face before applying a recovery cream and SPF. You will be given a recovery cream and SPF to take home with you for ongoing use.
What Should I expect after my Genuine Dermaroller™ treatment?
Immediately after your Genuine Dermaroller™ treatment, you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual – this will vary from one individual to another, from a light blush pink through to deep pink, such as sun burn. This will start to settle, usually significantly within hours, but sometimes taking two or three days to return to normal. You will be advised by your doctor to use given post procedure products to minimize any redness and support the skin during the process. Whilst your your skin is still red you should not use any of your normal skincare products, but instead use the recovery cream which can act as a cleanser and a moisturiser. You should apply the SPF we provide you with every day for 2 weeks. You can wear a light mineral make-up the day after your treatment.
After a week or so you will notice your skin may start to look more radiant than normal – this is temporary and will go back to your baseline after a week. After 4 weeks you will again notice an improvement – this is when your collagen is generated and demonstrates more lasting results.
Will Genuine Dermaroller™ treatment hurt?
Most people would describe it as uncomfortable but not painful. Some areas can feel more sensitive than others, and you can also feel more sensitive due to hormonal changes and stress. We leave the local anaesthetic cream on for a good duration to make sure treatment is as comfortable as possible. If you are concerned about pain then your can take some Paracetamol an hour before your treatment.
How many Genuine Dermaroller™ treatments do I need?
The number of treatments required depends on the problem being treated.
Rejuvenation – minimum of 3 treatment course
Acne scarring – minimum of 5 treatment course
Stretch Marks – minimum of 5 treatment course
There will be approximately 6 weeks between treatments.
Who should avoid Dermaroller treatment?
There are very few patients who are not suitable for Genuine Dermaroller™ treatment, but if you suffer from one of the following conditions it is usually best to avoid treatment:
- Patients with active acne (pustules or papules)
- Patients with current cold sores or skin infections (if you have a history of cold sores be aware that Genuine Dermaroller™ could cause an outbreak)
- Patients with skin cancer
- Patient with a history of keloid scarring (lumpy unsightly scars)
- Patients taking anti-coagulant drugs such as Warfarin or Clopidogrel
- Patients who have used oral retinoids (such as Roaccutane) in the last 12 months
- Patients currently using retinoids who are not yet acclimatised to it
