What is SkinPen?
The first microneedling device cleared by the FDA, SkinPen is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scarring. It also addresses other skin conditions and promotes overall skin rejuvenation. It works equally well for all skin types.
Ageless Remedies uses authentic SkinPen products from Crown Aesthetics.
How SkinPen Works
SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. It can be used to treat various skin blemishes such as scarring, stretch marks, and sagging or wrinkled skin.
The result is an effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound repair process:
- Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.
- Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develop.
- Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissue and new blood vessels.

Skin Pen Microneedling FAQs
What is my recovery time?
The microchannels remain open for four to six hours, creating an opportunity to supplement the skin with PRP or growth factors that make optimal results. After treatment, the skin will fully recover within about one week.
Are there any side effects or pain?
Most patients say the Skin Pen treatment is virtually pain-free because it requires numbing before the treatment.
Possible side effects include dryness and flakiness during that time frame.
How long does the treatment take?
The actual microneedling treatment takes about 20-30 minutes, with an additional 30-45 minutes needed for numbing the skin.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend three to four treatments for most patients.
When Will I See Results?
Initial improvements can be seen as early as one month, while optimal results typically emerge within 12 weeks.
