What to expect after treatment

You're likely to experience some mild to moderate redness, stinging, skin flaking, or mild irritation. Most patients leave looking like they have a sunburn. This will dissipate throughout the day. While it’s ideal that you stay out of the sun for the day or two following treatment, no other restrictions are placed on your activities. Most patients will have some light to mild flaking over the next couple of days. The SkinPen system comes with a simple proprietary aftercare system to enhance and complement the procedure, giving your skin the nutrients it needs to heal and restore.
