SKINPEN Micro-needling Treatment in Melbourne

SkinPen is the latest medical automated skin-needling device recommended for collagen induction and scar reduction.

It uses very fine needles of the highest quality and a motorised hand-piece to rapidly “stamp” the skin to stimulate collagen production and skin rejuvenation.

At Bioscor, we have always implemented the best technology for skin and hair treatments.  Our clinicians are trained to treat your skin with SkinPen. This skin-needling process has proven to be highly effective in treating skin concerns.

As we all know, our skin starts to deteriorate as we age, leading to concerns such as age spots, pigmentation, fine lines, scars, uneven skin texture, and pores.  With the help of micro-needling treatment in Melbourne, it is possible to give your skin a new life!

The SkinPen promotes the production of collagen and elastin in the skin which helps in triggering the natural healing process of the skin.


There are numerous dermal skin needling devices out on the market but not all of them are automated AND feature an adjustable needle depth.

This is why SkinPen has won awards for its innovative, unique feature where the needle lengths can be adjusted accordingly to treat different areas of the face. Our face has varying tissue depths from the thinner tissue layer of the forehead to the more voluminous cheeks.

This makes the SkinPen a highly effective treatment for areas that are normally difficult to treat such as the eye areas which cannot be treated using lasers, microdermabrasion, or peels. A shorter needle length is used here to treat the delicate eye area to reduce and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

On the other hand, a longer needle depth allows the SkinPen to penetrate deeper into the skin and effectively treat scars by breaking down the fibrotic scar tissue and allowing natural skin regeneration.

With the help of this advanced micro-needling treatment, new tissues, and skin cells are formed that help in improving the overall texture of the skin.

Another reason why SkinPen is a highly recommended micro-needling treatment device is that it ensures a high level of depth precision and sterility which works wonders for treating skin imperfections.


The micro-needles create tiny channels in the skin, triggering a controlled wound-healing response and stimulating collagen production. As such, this medical device must be performed in a medical setting to ensure the highest level of sterility. In fact, the patented tip has a single-use “lock-out” feature which ensures that the same tip cannot be reused, increasing safety for all patients.


SkinPen is effective for all skin types which makes it the most recommended micro-needling treatment. Skin micro-needling treatment has a wide range of benefits that can help address a variety of skin concerns.

  • SkinPen increases cell turnover and stimulates collagen production which helps in promoting natural skin healing.
  • SkinPen targets pigmentation (even melasma and age spots) and improves uneven skin tone by encouraging new cell turnover.
  • In the treatment of scar tissue, SkinPen can be adjusted to break down the scar tissue and trigger scar tissue repair. This helps in treating acne scarring and surgical scars effectively.
  • The skin needling process also helps in treating skin inflammation.
  • SkinPen does not require much downtime like other skin treatments.
  • The high level of precision offered by this micro-needling technique can help target specific problem areas on the face effectively.


In the market, there are a variety of micro needling treatment devices that claim to be the best. However, SkinPen in Melbourne has managed to steal the limelight because of its advanced features. The disposable cartridge and adjustable needle depth in SkinPen micro needling are the two main features that help practitioners work with utmost precision.

SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared micro-needling device that has excellent safety records and is clinically proven to stimulate collagen. SkinPen also has more needles per tip, compared to our previous skin needling device, Dermastamp. This makes it easier to achieve the ideal “endpoint” with SkinPen, making it quicker to perform a treatment thus saving our client’s time.

Moreover, unlike many micro-needling treatments, SkinPen protocol does not use any active ingredients. Therefore, it is recommended for those with sensitive skin, rosacea, darker skin tones, and acne.

Not to forget, SkinPen is also easier to use and more flexible. This advanced technology for micro needling in Melbourne has also given better results in several skin concerns as compared to other micro needling treatments.


*Results may vary based on individual factors and circumstances.


Depending on the skin condition, we will recommend a minimum of five sessions performed 6 – 8 weeks apart. It is always best to speak to your clinician to work out the ideal treatment plan for you.

There are no strict preparations needed for this micro needling treatment. At Bioscor, we do suggest a few guidelines to help you get the most out of your skin needling treatment such as-

  • Avoid the use of harsh chemicals on the skin before the treatment
  • Avoid the application of moisturisers and other creams on the skin before the treatment

Avoid staying out in the sun for long hours before the treatment session

Unlike other micro needling treatments in Melbourne, SkinPen helps with most skin types and skin concerns. SkinPen has shown amazing results in most patients. Only in a few rare cases where patients are suffering from health issues like diabetes and taking blood thinning medication, some extra precautions and care is needed. Our clinicians at Bioscor will guide you on the same before the treatment sessions begin.

It is necessary to be patient with the treatment results. No matter how many sessions you take, it takes time for the collagen to repair. In most cases, the results are evident in a week or two. The micro needling treatment results last for approximately three to five months depending on the care and skin concern.

The micro needling treatment with SkinPen is performed in a clinic setup. Depending on the skin concern the treatment can last from anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours. Topical anaesthesia is used to minimise the discomfort during the procedure. Further, the SkinPen is applied on the skin surface that is to be treated. The patient might experience minimal pain during the procedure.

There is little to no downtime with SkinPen treatments, however, this can depend on the skin concerns and tissues that we are treating. For collagen induction or skin rejuvenation, you expect to be flushed (like a sunburn) for up to 24 hours after the treatment with possible red spots or blotches due to blood spotting. For treatments that involve longer needle depths for damaged deep tissue such as acne scarring or ice-pick scarring, you can expect temporary blotches or skin discolorations as blood will be drawn when targeting deep tissues. Most of our clients remain pink for a few hours and cover up any minor discolorations with makeup (after 24 hours from the time of treatment).

No makeup is to be applied prior as the micro channels in the skin will remain open for at least an hour after the treatment. You may use mineral makeup 4 hours post-treatment.

There have not been any reports of any side effects in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.
