SkinPen Microneedling

​Effective. Safe. Affordable. Put SkinPen to Work for You.​


SkinPen by Bellus Medical uses ‘collagen induction therapy’ to treat melasma – also known as skin discoloration – as well as acne and surgical scars for ages 22 and up. SkinPen is the first ever cleared by the FDA.  

With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment – and step out with confidence. Procedures take about 30 minutes, depending on the area treated and the desired results. Due to their non-invasive nature, microneedling sessions usually require little downtime for patients.


SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.


  • SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA.
  • Works for all skin types – dark to light.
  • Most procedures take about 30 minutes, and results can be seen in as few as three treatments.
  • Microneedling procedures tend to cost less than alternatives. (The cost varies depending on the size and number of treatment areas).


SkinPen is clinically shown to reduce the appearance of acne scars. In fact, 90% of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the treatment to friends and family. It’s a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office with little downtime. As the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen sets the industry standard for safety.


Unlike most alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically shown to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark. Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh chemical peels. In addition, when you properly space treatments that are overseen by a physician, the procedures can be administered year-round.


Yes, by design. SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures. Safety measures like these are part of the reason SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA.


The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over time without any further complications.



As important as feeding the skin cells the right ingredients, equally important is introducing the nutrients at the appropriate time post-procedure. Formulated specifically for microneedling, Skinfuse® Post-Procedure Protocol by Bellus Medical delivers essential nutrients into skin cells to optimize the results of microneedling for 90 days and beyond. Skinfuse omits ingredients with the potential to hinder the skin’s remodeling process, further enhancing microneedling treatments. The protocol provides the right ingredients at the right time for the right procedure. 

Microneedling fools the body into sending more restorative collagens and elastin than the area needs. That, when used with our post-procedure protocol, Skinfuse®, improves your patients’ appearance more than is strictly necessary. Much more!


Skinfuse® SURGE 1 Collagen Boost helps maintain the skin remodeling effect post-microneedling by delivering high concentrations of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, both oil-soluble for collagen remodeling and water-soluble for antioxidant protection in a time-release formulation delivered by a dual-pump bottle.

Utilizing the body’s own plasma to aid in its natural healing, rejuvenation and cellular growth. A small amount of your blood is withdrawn and processed to isolate the platelet-rich-plasma and growth factors, and then placed back in the skin by microneedling. Platelet rich plasma helps restore and enhance skin tone, reduce wrinkles and fine lines and improves skin texture and tone considerably.
