Why Try SkinPen in Fairbanks?

Fast & Effective

SkinPen rejuvenates skin from the inside out for younger-looking skin. Results are natural, safe and effective for all skin tones and types. In just 30 minutes, SkinPen jump-starts new collagen without heat or chemicals.

Minimal Downtime

There is minimal downtime associated with a SkinPen treatment. Your skin may initially appear mildly pink to red, similar to a mild sunburn. This is normal and should subside within 24 to 72 hours.

Immediate & Continued Results

Many of our patients begin to see immediate results after receiving a SkinPen treatment, although a series of 3 to 5 treatments is commonly recommended. The cascade of healing processes and improvements continue for 3 to 6 months following your treatment.

What to Expect

The SkinPen Process

Brief Consultation

You’ll meet with a licensed medical provider for a skin consultation. Your provider will discuss any concerns you have about your skin, as well as what you’d like to accomplish. We will also discuss any sensitivities your skin may have.



A topical numbing agent will be used to ensure your comfort during your treatment. Pre-treatment numbing cream may extend the entire treatment session up to one hour—still plenty of time to schedule your treatment before work or during your lunch hour.

Collagen Production

The SkinPen creates millions of controlled microchannels in the skin. This jump-starts your body’s production of collagen and elastin, and encourages the release of growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells.


Patients typically experience slight swelling and redness/pinkness after treatment, which will subside in 24 to 72 hours. Many people see rejuvenated skin after just one treatment. Results should continue to improve for 3 to 6 months following your SkinPen appointment.

Soothing Gel

To conclude your session, your provider will apply a soothing gel that will soothe the skin and help prevent it from drying out.
