Ever wonder why the sky is blue or how do geese know to fly in a V or why your kids know exactly what to say to annoy you?


These timeless questions are similar to the one MDPen aims to answer today: just how exactly does a microneedling device work? First, we’ll review what exactly is microneedling, and then we’ll dive into the actual microneedling device itself.




microneedling (or collagen induction therapy) is the process of using tiny microneedles to stimulate your skin’s natural healing process (or collagen production) to smooth out your skin and rejuvenate it. microneedling yields extraordinary results for the reverse of signs of aging, and the diminishing of acne scars, skin pigmentations, and stretch marks. MDPen is a leading provider of microneedling devices, microneedling serums, and microneedling training for practitioners.




When you undergo a microneedling procedure, chances are your certified professional microneedling practitioner will use one of our microneedling devices, either the MDPen Dual Cordless/Electric Micro Needling or the MDPen Electric Micro Needling. Let’s see how these microneedling pens work.


Most microneedling devices work the same way. The practitioner uses a pen with a needle head that is disposable. Refine needle heads contain 160 needles; while, restore needle heads feature 12 needles. With the microneedling pen, the practitioner can adjust the depth of the device, which allows the practitioner to tailor the microneedling treatment to each patient to achieve his or her desired result. After the treated area has been cleaned and disinfected to minimize the chance of infection from surface bacteria and numbing cream applied, you’re ready to begin.


Each microneedling device including MDPen’s microneedling devices have adjustable settings for speed and depth. These will be adjusted periodically throughout your procedure for the results you desire.


Once activated, the microneedling pen vibrates quickly, thus making the tiny micro-injuries in a speedy manner. The professional microneedling practitioner can usually treat the desired area in under 20 minutes, thereby minimizing the discomfort you may feel. The practitioner will cover the desired area by gently rolling the needle back and forth until all surfaces have been covered at about a speed of one inch per second.


Once your microneedling procedure is complete, the needle head is disposed of in the proper medical container. The microneedling pen is disinfected and ready to be used for the next patient.




MDPen understands there are a variety of different types of microneedling devices out there. From at-home dermarollers to other microneedling pen manufacturers, the consumer and the practitioner have choices.
