Skin Needling (Dermapen)

Dermapen is the world’s most advanced skin micro needling device treating wrinkles, acne scars and more…

• Skin Needling / Collagen Induction Therapy
• Skin Tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
• Acne scars and wounding healing
• Improving wrinkles and fine lines
• Minimising pore size
• Improving stretch marks

Skin Needling using the Dermapen is revolutionary new treatment that encourages the skin’s own natural healing by piercing the epidermis and dermis (surface of the skin) and encouraging the production of collagen.

One of the most exciting advantages of this treatment is that it can safely be performed on both darker and lighter skin types. Plus there is minimal downtime and discomfort and an almost immediate outcome.

What is skin needling with the Dermapen?

The Dermapen uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin. The automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness of treatment by increasing absorption of products, whilst reducing pain and discomfort.

For many treatments Dermapen is just as effective as Fraxel and IPL and the most amazing benefit is that Dermapen’s pricing is a fraction of the leading alternatives.

What are the advantages of using pen over skin (dermal) roller?

Traditionally, skin rollers have been the only option for skin needling. Dermapen’s new technology offers significant advantage over the traditional rollers including minimising epidermal damage which means less pain and the ability to operate smaller and curved facial areas.

How many sessions do I need?

Each skin responds differently and most skins will need multiple treatments at 4 weekly intervals, dependent on the initial condition being treated, and the desired outcome. This time frame allows us to see the maximum new collagen deposition and to assess the success of the treatment.

What is the recovery time for skin needling?

Following the treatment the area treated maybe red, swollen, and irritated. The redness lasts about 24-48 hours. After 24 hours you can wear mineral makeup to cover the area.
