What is Innopen?
Innopen is a micro-needling device for professional use only. It is totally unique in that it is the world’s first “sealed tip” needling device, ensuring absolute precision and control over the depth of tissue to be treated, as well as protecting against microscopic tears and tissue damage that can easily occur with other needling devices!
Micro-needling is very effective method for treating a whole host of skin concerns, as well as giving general skin rejuvenation. A fantastic way to promote a deeper absorption of any creams and serums applied topically to the surface of the skin.

What does an Innopen Micro-Needling treatment involve?
An Innopen treatment is very safe and virtually painless procedure. A mild topical anaesthetic cream in applied 45 minutes prior to your treatment to ensure total comfort. The Innopen hand held devise releases tiny needles into small areas of the skin to create controlled microscopic injuries. This in turn stimulates brand new collagen and elastin, as well as producing a thicker, firmer dermis with a reduction of lines and wrinkles.
The actual needling treatment itself takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, depending on the facial areas being treated. A cooling peptide gel mask is applied immediately after to sooth and hydrate the skin. After your treatment redness can be seen on the skin, however significant healing takes place within the first 24-48 hours post treatment. When treating deeper levels of the skin this can be extended to 3-4 days.
How many treatments will I need?
A single Innopen treatment can be beneficial for general skin boosting and rejuvenation. However when treating deeper wrinkles, scaring, and advanced ageing we recommend a course of 3-6 treatments to achieve full results.
