Gig Harbor Aesthetics is proud to offer SkinPen®, the only FDA-approved microneedling device on the market today. This treatment creates microscopic channels in the skin without using lasers by using a single-use tip with stainless-steel needles. A controlled “injury” is created on the skin by using needles to trigger a cascade of healing that boosts collagen production.
The primary goal of Microneedling with SkinPen® is to improve the skin’s texture and reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. Although the treatment does not target pigment, patients may find that their complexion is more even after having healthier skin overall.

SkinPen® is suitable for treating all skin types, but we recommend that patients be at least 15 years of age before performing the procedure.
The treatment area will be numbed for 15 minutes prior to the procedure using a special numbing cream. The SkinPen® procedure typically takes 20-30 minutes depending on the severity of the damage and the number of areas to be treated. Patients usually experience minimal downtime after the procedure, despite some swelling and redness.
