SkinPen Precision is the ONLY Microneedling Device Approved in Australia

Our commitment to safety and quality has resulted in a year of significant accomplishments for Bellus Medical.

Bellus Medical, a leader in medical aesthetics products and devices, is pleased to offer the skin-enhancing benefits of the industry-leading SkinPen® Precision in Australia. SkinPen® Precision is Bellus Medical’s flagship product, and now with approval from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Bellus will partner with Advanced Skin Technology to distribute SkinPen® Precision to practitioners in Australia.

TGA, the agency that regulates medical devices and pharmaceuticals in Australia, has approved the SkinPen® Precision microneedling system as a Class II medical device utilizing Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) to treat Melasma, acne scars, and surgical scars. For a device to be registered in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), there is an approval process that must be followed. Manufacturers must ensure their products comply with the essential principles of safety and performance, including clinical performance, and must document a comprehensive risk assessment for every product.

“We are thrilled for SkinPen® Precision to be the only TGA approved microneedling system in Australia,” said Joe Proctor, Bellus Medical President and CEO. “Our commitment to safety and quality has resulted in a year of significant accomplishments for Bellus Medical. TGA approval follows the Medical Device License we received from Health Canada, the CE Mark registration for Europe, along with the ISO 13485:2016 certification. This further positions us as an industry leader and trusted provider within aesthetic medical devices.”
