WHAT IS A SKINPEN TREATMENT?

The Hague Clinic uses the world's first FDA-approved medical microneedling system: the SkinPen. This is one of the most popular treatments at the moment because of the beautiful results and the low threshold. The SkinPen is a very effective way to improve the skin, without risks or annoying skin reactions.

You can undergo medical microneedling for the treatment of skin problems, but also for general skin improvement.

The SkinPen creates thousands of microchannels in a very controlled way. These "wounds" are enough to initiate the skin healing process.

 

Skinping is suitable for almost everyone. For both women and men, for the face, but also for other parts of the body. You can undergo microneedling at any time of the year (including during the summer months).

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY SKIN AFTER A SKINPEN TREATMENT?

  • The skin will recover and renew itself, new collagen has been created and the skin will become tighter, smoother and firmer.

  • Reduction of wrinkles.

  • Pores become less visible.

  • The skin becomes healthier and therefore more resilient.

  • Reduction of diffuse redness as in Rosacea.

  • Pigment spots diminish.

  • Stimulating blood flow.

  • Thinning of the horny layer.

  • Scars become smoother, less visible and more even.

WHAT WILL MY SKIN LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?

  • After the treatment, the skin looks red. The skin may feel warm, dry or tight. There may be a slight swelling and there may also be visible blood spots.

  • Any redness, blood spots and swelling will disappear within 1-4 days after the treatment. In the first week after the treatment, the skin may flake very slightly. On day 4-5 after the treatment, the skin has fully recovered and functions normally. This is a normal process and beautiful new skin will appear below. If the skin does not flake, this does not mean that the Skinpen treatment has had no effect

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • We advise you to use nutritious products and moisturizing moisturizer for the first few days after the treatment.

  • Do not use make-up for the first 48 hours after the treatment.

  • Avoid the sun for 10-28 days (sun holidays and winter sports).

  • Protect your skin well with at least SPF 30, in sun and rain.

  • Smoking slows down the healing process.

  • It is very important that you do not scratch the skin during the process.

  • Avoid sauna, hot baths and sweating (sports) for 48 hours after the treatment.
