I love the services I’ve been receiving so far at Face to Face spa, so I decided to try Skin Pen for this months session. If your new to skin pen and wondering what it involves or what it does, I will try my best to explain below.
1.) What is Skin Pen? Skin Pen is a minimally invasive procedure involving a disposable needle that is used on the skin to help improve the overall appearance of the skin. It creates microchannels that help to stimulate the skins natural production of collagen and elastin.
2.) How often should you get these treatments? Check with our esthetician because recommendations will be different depending on what your esthetician recommends for your skin type. My esthetician recommended that I return every 4 weeks for 3 sessions total, and then once/year for maintenance.
3.) Do I notice any results so far? My procedure was exactly 12 days ago, and honestly, I don’t notice much of a difference in my skin. There are different intensities on the skin pen, and since I was a little nervous, I told her I wanted the lowest setting. After we were finished, she said my skin could have definitely tolerated a higher setting, but since I’ve never done something like this before, I wanted to air on the cautious side. I will be back in 4 weeks to schedule my second session.
4.) What should I expect after? For me, it looked like I had a mild sunburn. My face slightly peeled for about 5 days. My esthetician suggested I don’t wash my face for 24 hour after, and also no makeup for 2 days. She also suggested that I use a facewash that was safe for post procedure use (skinceuticals foaming facewash). There were 2 skinfuse products that I received which were a calming complex, and Lift HG. I’ve posted pictures below of the products I’ve been using.
