SkinPen Aftercare: Maintaining Your Skin Rejuvenation Results



Winter can be harsh on your skin, but SkinPen® creates an opportunity for renewal. As you welcome the new year, it’s the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin with SkinPen®, a leading microneedling treatment.

Read here to learn more about the essentials of aftercare to ensure your post-treatment skin is as radiant and healthy as it can be.

What is Skin Rejuvenation, and How Does SkinPen® Fit In?

Skin rejuvenation encompasses various treatments aimed at:

  • Revitalizing the skin
  • Reducing signs of aging
  • Improving overall skin texture and appearance


SkinPen®, a standout in the realm of microneedling, leverages fine needles to create micro-injuries on the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and boosting collagen and elastin production.

Unlike other treatments, SkinPen® focuses on enhancing the skin’s natural beauty from within, making it a unique choice for those seeking effective rejuvenation.

Nurturing Your Skin After SkinPen® Treatment

Aftercare is important in maximizing the benefits of your SkinPen® treatment and ensuring a smooth, glowing complexion.

Here are key aftercare tips to follow:

Gentle Cleansing

Post-treatment, your skin will be more sensitive than usual. Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser to avoid irritating the treated area. Opt for lukewarm water and pat the skin dry with a soft towel, avoiding any rubbing or scrubbing motions.

Hydration is Key

Keeping your skin hydrated is essential for healing. Apply a fragrance-free, hypoallergenic moisturizer to soothe the skin and help maintain its moisture barrier.

Look for products specifically recommended for post-microneedling care to ensure they’re suitable for sensitive skin.

Sun Protection

After SkinPen® treatments, your skin will be temporarily more sensitive to the sun. Protect your skin by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even if it’s cloudy. Wearing protective clothing and seeking shade can also help minimize sun exposure.

Avoid Makeup

Give your skin a break from makeup for at least 24 to 48 hours post-treatment. Makeup can clog the microchannels created by SkinPen® and may hinder the healing process.

When you do start wearing makeup again, make sure your applicators are clean to prevent any risk of infection.

Stay Out of the Heat

High temperatures can exacerbate skin sensitivity and swelling. Avoid saunas, steam rooms, and hot showers for 1 to 2 days after your SkinPen® session. Keeping your skin cool will aid in the recovery process and enhance comfort.

Skip the Gym

Physical exercise can increase blood flow and lead to sweating, which might irritate your treated skin. Take a short break from your workout routine, typically 24 to 48 hours, to allow your skin to heal without any additional stress.

Patience with the Process

Remember, skin rejuvenation is a journey. While you may see immediate improvements, the full benefits of SkinPen®, including enhanced skin texture and treat facial acne scars, will unfold over several weeks as your skin produces more collagen and elastin.
