SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.
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.
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.
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.

Microneedling FAQ's with Dr Shoukas:
Why Use SkinPen?
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.
Will It Work For Me?
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.
Is It Safe?
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.
What Should I Expect Post-Procedure?
The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately after the 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.
