TRANSFORM, TIGHTEN AND REJUVENATE YOUR SKIN, WITH MICRONEEDLING USING THE SKINPEN®
Microneedling using the SkinPen®, using its collagen-remodeling technology, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. SkinPen® safely employs multiple tiny, sterilized needles to deliver targeted micro-injuries which activate the body’s wound-healing processes. These processes stimulate the skin’s collagen and elastin production to reanimate a firmer, more resilient and youthful looking skin.
What does it Treat?
Microneedling using the SkinPen® is effective for refining skin’s texture and appearance – most often used on the face, neck and décolletage. It can diminish hyperpigmentation, age spots, sun damage, acnes scars and stretch marks, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and firm and contract skin laxity. It is effective to use on all parts of the skin and is sometimes used to treat stretch marks, scarring or other skin concerns on other parts of the body.
How quickly will I see results?
Achieve transformative results in as few as three 30 minute sessions over a period of three months. After each treatment the skin begins to heal itself, looking more renewed and rejuvenated over time. Following each session, you may feel warmth and tightness because of increased blood flow to the skin – as part of the body’s natural wound healing response. You will notice some redness or inflammation, which is totally normal and should subside within 24 hours to 72 hours.
Microneedling using the SkinPen® is a non-invasive treatment that remodels skin through the use of tiny, precise micro-punctures – employing collagen-remodelling technology to deeply rejuvenate your skin. It is a safe Health Canada and FDA-approved treatment for non-surgical solutions to improve and rejuvenate your skin, with minimal discomfort.
This treatment can refine skin’s texture and appearance by facilitating a radiant skin-resurfacing refresh or a scar-fading transformation. It can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, surgical scars and acne scars (for those age 22+). It works to soften the appearance of stretch marks, uneven skin tone (dyschromia), enlarged pores, sun damage, pigmentation conditions, and melasma.
Clinically tested and proven safe and effective, Skin Pen® is a globally approved microneedling device which has garnered a medical device C.E. rating and I.S.O. certification. It is designed to work without chemicals or heat to provide a minimally invasive skin-regenerating treatment, with little to no downtime.
Microneedling using the SkinPen® takes advantage of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries to the dermis. These micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that stimulate the skin’s natural production of new collagen and elastin, without causing new scar tissue formation.
This invigorated activity helps regenerate your skin, by kicking its natural healing process into high gear. The result is an effective remodelling of affected tissues, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process triggered by Microneedling using the SkinPen®:
Phase I, Inflammation: Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II, Proliferation: The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III, Remodelling: The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Following each session, the skin begins to heal itself, looking more refreshed and rejuvenated over time. Renewed skin will look and feel healthier and more supple.
Microneedling using the SkinPen® delivers proven results that last up to six months. Multiple treatments may be required to meet client goals and achieve optimal results.
Microneedling using the SkinPen® treatment can help diminish fine lines, wrinkles and folds, firm and lift sagging skin, improve the appearance of stretch marks & scars, rejuvenate and even skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of age spots, hyper-pigmentation and sun damaged skin.
At Tight Clinic, we use the medical-grade, award-winning microneedling SkinPen® tool, available only through medical professionals. It is designed to work without chemicals or heat to provide a minimally invasive skin-regenerating treatment, with little to no downtime.
The patented, single-use sterile needle cartridge of the SkinPen® is built with the utmost safety in mind. It uses adjustable length, disposable straight needles to penetrate skin at a 90-degree angle, and has a customizable depth adjustment. SkinPen® is also surrounded by a custom-designed BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures.
Microneedling using the SkinPen® creates micro-channels (microscopic holes) in the skin at a rate of 1600 per second, while minimizing cellular damage. SkinPen™ can be customized to create precise micro-injuries between 0.25mm – 2.5mm in depth, and personalized to meet the various needs of the client.
Utilizing vacuum sealed blood centrifuge tubes, our RN practitioners use a centrifuge to prepare the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The centrifuge at Tight Clinic is a superior model and provides better separation of plasma components to reduce the level of cell trauma and damage; thus improving the quality of the PRP.
PRP Injections are administered using a syringe and a fine needle.
Microneedling using SkinPen® is trusted and used by leading dermatologists, aestheticians, and other skincare professionals.
In as few as three treatments, Microneedling using the SkinPen® can reveal tighter, rejuvenated skin. Tight Clinic professionals will recommend a suitable number of sessions of Microneedling using the SkinPen®, depending on the number of sites affected and the extent of symptoms.

|Three Treatments Package:
Some people will see visible results after just one or two treatments of Microneedling using the SkinPen®. Continued improvement will be seen for up to six months after a full treatment series; as new collagen and elastin forms and your skin continues to become taught, more resilient and toned.
Most patients report feeling a tickling sensation or feeling the slight vibration of the SkinPen® during the micro needling treatment. Some clients report that it feels like a warm massage. Thin-skinned areas or those with more nerve endings may feel more uncomfortable than others but it is not unbearable, thus no medication or anesthesia is needed.
A topical cleansing antiseptic is applied prior to treatment and then a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin. You will wait 15 minutes to ensure a more comfortable treatment. The numbing cream is then removed, and the skin is cleansed again to remove any residual cream or other impurities. The Tight Clinic practitioner will apply a cooling, conductive hydrogel to the treatment area. This is used to protect against abrasion and friction during the treatment. The SkinPen® is then moved across the skin, in vertical and horizontal movements to ensure every area is treated thoroughly.
When the treatment is over, your Tight Clinic practitioner will wipe away the cooling gel and soothe your skin with a cool towel. Moisturizer and sunscreen is applied to conclude the session. Slight redness in the treatment area is common post-treatment. Skin may feel warm, tight and sensitive for the first 24 – 72 hours because of increased blood flow to the skin – as part of the body’s natural wound-healing response.
There is a slight possibility of other side effects like bumps, breakouts, and dryness, but they are rare and not everyone will experience them.
Microneedling using the SkinPen® doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are natural and it is safe for all skin types and skin tones, from light to dark. It is a fantastic option for individuals who want a non-invasive, natural-looking approach to improving their skin tone, texture, and laxity.
It has been clinically proven to be effective for women and men with with all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I – VI. Because there is no downtime, it is an ideal treatment for busy, active people. Microneedling using the SkinPen® treatments, when properly spaced – and over time, can be used for many years.
