This skin needling treatment stimulates the skin to repair itself naturally and safely, by creating controlled micro injuries in the skin which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, vital components of healthy skin. This treatment can be performed on the face and body to address fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, scars, acne scarring and stretch marks.
Innopen is one of the world’s safest micro skin needling devices, it uses an automatic vibrating stamp like motion to create micro injuries in the skin without tearing the skin. When the Innopen device is placed onto the surface of the skin it’s motorised action creates thousands of tiny pin-pricks in the skin, causing micro-injuries which in turn stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, so that the skin regenerates itself from within.
