If you are dealing with skin conditions such as wrinkles, sagging skin, or hyperpigmentation, then it might feel like anything you do is completely useless. You probably thought that an anti-wrinkle cream could do the trick, but it took something as simple as a TikTok teenage filter to make you lose all hope. However, you don’t need a filter to look youthful—you can use various cosmetic procedures for that!



For example, SkinPen® is starting to become more and more popular as it can help you regain that youthful look. If you are curious about the SkinPen® procedure, this blog will take you through its definition and benefits.

What Is SkinPen®?

SkinPen® is a microneedling tool that makes thousands of microchannels in your skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing process while keeping cellular damage at a minimum. Your skin will be rejuvenated from the inside out, reducing skin imperfections and creating a fresh, vibrant appearance.

Microneedling has been an efficient tool to reduce skin conditions such as acne, scars, stretch marks, sagging skin, and more. It’s a safe option to trigger your elastin and collagen production with little to no downtime. The SkinPen® microneedling tool is 100 percent sterile and approved by the FDA, ensuring that you get younger-looking skin without risks caused by cross-contamination.

SkinPen® Benefits

SkinPen® comes with quite a few benefits that you may want to consider. These are:

What to Expect After a SkinPen® Treatment?

You may notice results from your SkinPen® session after three to five days of receiving the treatment. During that time, you may experience mild flaking or peeling as your skin is healing itself, essentially shedding the damaged skin layer for a new, fresh one. This healing process will last about seven days on the surface but can last up to two months on a deeper level.

Don’t panic if your skin looks red, slightly swollen, or feels rough on the first few days after the microneedling session. You just created thousands of micro-wounds on your face, so there’s bound to be some slight inflammation, but the redness should go away by the third day. 

As for aftercare, you may want to avoid applying face creams or makeup on the first and second days of the procedure. Avoid touching your face, as you don’t want to bring contaminants straight to your healing microchannels. Make sure you steer clear from the sun as well. On the third day, you may apply sunscreen and makeup.

Is SkinPen® the Right Solution for You?
