What Is Micro-Penning?

Do you want your skin to look brighter, clearer, firmer and more even? Are you looking for the skincare products you invest in to be even more effective? If you’re ready to take your skin to the next level, you’ll want to try micro-penning. Micro-Penning is designed to stimulate a change in the skin, enhancing all other skincare treatments received and allow the skincare products our clients use to be more effective.

During a micro-penning treatment, a cordless device composed of medical-grade stainless steel is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries cause the skin to go into repair mode and prompt the body to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are an important building block to healthy, radiant skin. The more you have, the healthier your skin will be.

The treatment time for micro-penning is quick. Depending on the size of the treatment area, a treatment can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Treatment areas usually include the face, neck and décolleté. A micro-penning treatment has very little downtime. The treatment itself is relatively painless, especially when done with topical numbing cream. Most people return to their normal, daily activities immediately after treatment.

Micro-penning works well on every skin type and for all skin conditions. Even sensitive and thick skin types can tolerate this treatment because no heat or chemicals are used. Those with open wounds or active acne on their skin will need to wait until their skin is clear before having a micro-penning treatment.

Benefits of micro-penning treatments include:

  • reducing pore size
  • targeting discoloration and acne pigment scars
  • leaving the skin looking vibrant and healthy.

The micro-injuries caused during a micro-penning treatment enable skincare products used after to penetrate deeper into the skin, allowing for better absorption and effectiveness. This innovative treatment is a great alternative to other skin resurfacing tools such as lasers and dermal rollers.
