Yes. SkinPen is a safe treatment if performed by an experienced and certified practitioner. SkinPen is built with safety in mind. The sterile needle is single-use and is surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination between procedures.
It may cause some discomfort. However, numbing cream will be applied before the procedure to reduce the level of discomfort and pain.
The natural healing process of the skin takes time – after the treatment, the results will continue to improve in the weeks. Most patients will see the optimum results at around 3-6 months.
For some patients depending on the skin conditions, a course of 4-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart might be recommended to achieve the treatment goal.
