NanoPen Prime, NanoPen Lux, NanoShell

The NanoPen Prime is one-speed and powered by one AAA battery. It’s compact and portable, making it perfect for home and away. The NanoPen Lux is an upgraded rechargeable model of the NanoPen Prime. It has three-speeds to allow for both a quicker application for more advanced users as well as a slower one for more precision. This allows for a quicker, yet more effective boost to your daily routine.

No, the NanoPen needs NanoChips to operate.

The NanoPen Prime uses a single AAA battery. The NanoPen Lux is USB rechargeable.

You can clean your NanoPen using a damp cloth. Do not use harsh chemicals or alcohol.

No, the battery in the NanoShell is non-replaceable and non-rechargeable. It lasts for up to six months of use (about 900 cleaning sessions or 90 full-cleanings and serum-absorption boost sessions).


Daily, Booster, Zip Booster, Grand Booster, NanoPearl

No, NanoChips need to be paired with the NanoPen and NanoPearls need to be paired with the NanoShell in order to operate. Please note that the NanoChips used for the pen are different from the NanoPearls used for the shell.

No, all Deminuage NanoChips and NanoPearls are one-time use only for sanitary reasons.

The Daily NanoChips are made to be used on an everyday basis. They boost the absorption of serum to make your daily facial more effective.

The Booster NanoChips are made to be used 1-2x weekly (in place of Daily NanoChips) with the Deminuage Blanq Brightening Serum. They allow for an even deeper absorption of the serum’s active ingredients.

No, we recommend using Booster NanoChips 1-2x weekly and sticking to Daily NanoChips for everyday use.

Deminuage NanoChips are made from an ultra-hard, high-purity monocrystalline silicon, which allows for a painless application. The NanoChip is powered by a grid of NanoTips that are each individually 1000X smaller than a human hair.

Yes, the NanoChips for the NanoPen Prime and Lux are the same.

No, the NanoShell uses a special chip called the NanoPearl, which is not compatible with the NanoPen Prime or Lux.


Yes, the microscopic absorption channels created by Deminuage’s QuickPore technology can boost the absorption of any serum by up to 20 times. However, it is recommended to use the Deminuage Blanq Brightening Serum with the Booster NanoChips for optimal results.


Use these one-time use rubber heads to apply serum without touching the skin directly. This minimizes the possibility of bacteria entering the microscopic absorption channels created by the NanoChips during treatment. To apply serum, place rubber head over the bottle. Next, hold the bottle vertically and gently tap the skin’s surface to allow for an even application.

The Blanq Brightening Serum comes in a single-use 2ml ampoule bottle. It is highly recommended to use the entire serum within one treatment session.

Yes, the Blanq Brightening Serum is effective on its own and can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, under-eye bags, and textured skin. It leaves skin brighter and more hydrated without any sticky residue. Please note that using Booster NanoChips with the serum dramatically improves its effectiveness.

The Blanq serum is good for everyday use and provides optimal results when paired with Booster NanoChips (used 1-2x weekly).

Face Mask

It is recommended to apply the mask directly after a NanoChip treatment, especially on a Booster day or if you see any redness after use. The mask’s active ingredients are best absorbed by the skin through the microscopic channels created during treatment. These channels remain open for 30 minutes after use.

It can be used daily to improve skin conditions.

We recommend leaving the mask on for 15-20 minutes.


No, the NanoChip needs to touch the skin directly in order to create the microscopic absorption channels. However, it is highly recommended to apply the mask after treatment for best results.

Yes, we recommend massaging the remaining serum onto the neck and any skin left uncovered by the mask.


Micro-needling is the practice of inserting very fine needles into the skin to create controlled injury to further promote skin rejuvenation. The minuscule trauma caused by these needles sends signals to the body to send collagen and elastin to repair the area. This stimulus in production causes skin to look tighter and more youthful.

Deminuage’s revolutionary QuickPore technology is a painless, less-invasive alternative to at-home micro-needling that eliminates all risk of bleeding, bruising, or scarring. Through the creation of reversible microscopic absorption channels in the outermost layer of skin, the NanoChips instantly increase the effectiveness of serums and facial products. These temporary channels automatically close within 20-30 minutes of use to restore skin’s natural protection.

Dermabrasion (a form of exfoliation) removes an entire layer of dead skin making it a a much more aggressive skincare treatment than Deminuage’s QuickPore technology.

Unlike Dermabrasion, our treatments are less invasive and do not remove this layer of dead skin, but instead open microscopic channels in the stratum corneum (outermost layer) to allow serum’s active ingredients to be absorbed more effectively. These channels automatically close within 20-30 minutes of use, restoring skin’s natural protection.

Deminuage’s QuickPore technology was invented to instantly and dramatically improve upon the results of your daily skincare routine. The NanoChips create microscopic absorption channels in the skin making your daily serum 20x more effective. Our products can treat everything from fine lines, wrinkles, and textured skin to fading dark circles, pimples, melasma, acne, and blackheads.

No, Deminuage NanoChips will NOT damage your skin. The patented QuickPore™ Technology ensures non-invasive and painless treatment. The microscopic channels through stratum corneum created by NanoChips will automatically close within 20 to 30 minutes.

The microscopic absorption channels automatically close within 20-30 minutes after the treatment, so it's recommended to wait 30-60 minutes after use to apply makeup.

Yes, Deminuage can be used on any skin type, even sensitive skin. We recommend doing a skin sensitivity test on the inner wrist before first use.

No, you can incorporate the Deminuage NanoPen and NanoChips into your skincare routine as little or as much as you prefer. Consistant and long-term usage is recommended for best results.

We recommend gliding across the face from inside to outside and bottom to top for optimal results.

We recommend:

Using low speed (blue) for the stamping motion around the eyes and nose

Using medium (green) or high (red) speed to glide the pen across the face. Please note that high speed is for experienced users only and is intended to shorten treatment time

For more details, please refer to the NanoPen Lux User Guide.

It takes 5-10 minutes to treat the entire face and less than 1 minute to treat a small area.

We recommend following a 3x3 rule for every Deminuage treatment, which means not going over the same area more than three times or staying in the same spot for more than three seconds.

Every Deminuage treatment is meant to be non-invasive and painless. If you feel any discomfort or pain at any time, it is likely that you’re pressing the device too hard against your skin. We recommend only lightly gliding or stamping the NanoChip across the skin’s surface during use. Also, be sure to apply serum before every treatment to help lubricate the skin, allowing the NanoChip to glide more smoothly.

It is normal for some skin types to show some redness within the first 24 hours after treatment. Applying a mask after use can help reduce this coloration.

Yes, Deminuage NanoChips can actually help reduce acne and acne scarring. For other skin conditions, please contact Deminuage, so our skincare specialists can help provide guidance.

No, our patented QuickPore technology offers a non-invasive and painless treatment. There will be no pain, no blood, and no downtime.

The NanoShell is a first-of-its-kind portable 2-in-1 deep cleanser and facial booster. It effectively cleans below-the-surface dirt and oil, dead skin cells, and makeup residue.

When paired with a NanoPearl, the NanoShell creates microscopic channels, which increase blood circulation and boost the absorption of serums’ active ingredients making them 20x more effective.
