SkinPen Micro-Needling Skin Treatment
SkinPen Micro Needling
We’re delighted to bring the latest, most advanced micro needling treatment to Spa-licious’ clients. Using SkinPen Precision, a breakout next-generation micro needling device from the US, we can penetrate the skin at deeper levels (up to 2.5mm) and at greater density than ever before, delivering immediate and significant improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, skin sagging, uneven skin texture, sun damage and acne scars.
This breakthrough treatment is 100% reliable, FDA-approved and safety tested to highest standards. Treatment is undertaken by our fully-trained aestheticians experienced in all types of micro needling procedures, including our popular Meso Vytal Skin Needling facial.

Unlike manual derma rolling, where a roller covered in tiny needles is manoeuvred across the skin making a series of tiny punctures, the SkinPen’s digital technology enables the device to produce a much higher density of channels – around 98,000 each minute – maximising its revitalising and resurfacing effect. As you can see from our before and after images, improvements are visible after one micro needling treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and will continue to reduce as the body startsgenerating new collagen and elastin. Skin looks tighter and smoother, especially around tell-tale areas such as the jawline and under the chin. The combined use of potent skin serums also prevents further fine lines and wrinkles forming making it the ideal anti-aging treatment. Acne scars and chicken pox scars are visibly improved, redness is reduced, and skin looks smoother and more even. This will intensify post-treatment as the body accelerates collagen and elastin production. Sun-damaged skin looks renewed, pores and lines are less visible and skin texture looks refined and brighter. Uneven skin texture, which can take many forms, is rebalanced, so that dry or rough patches look healthy and hydrated and pigmentation and dark spots are noticeably reduced, restoring an even, glowing complexion.
What to expect
The SkinPen Precision provides noticeable, long-lasting results without needing to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery. The treatment works by creating thousands of microscopic punctures in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural repair response to create fresh collagen and elastin, the fibrous proteins which keep skin looking youthful and supple. The effect of the micro needling process is optimised by applying powerful skin-rejuvenating serums during and post-treatment. Due to the thousands of tiny perforations made in the skin, these are absorbed deep into the basal layers of skin where they have most impact. The SkinPen’s unique head design and needle position means this treatment is much more comfortable than manual micro needling, making it suitable for treating even sensitive facial regions, such as around the nose, eyes and lips.
