Skin Needling

 

Dermapen is a non-invasive skin needling treatment that restores and rejuvenates the skin by reducing wrinkles and fine lines, tightening and improving elasticity, shrinking enlarged pores, minimising scarring, and repairing pigmentation, sun damaged and ageing skin.

HOW IT WORKS

Dermapen penetrates the top layer of skin with micro-needles that create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, stimulating new collagen and elastin formation. 

Dermapen™ skin needling is used to treat the face, neck and décolletage.

RESULTS

Results are visible after six weeks and last for up to one to three months. Regular treatments will help to maintain the best results. 

TREATMENT PREPARATION
  • Prime your skin two weeks prior with vitamin A, vitamin C and other growth factor serums 
  • Avoid tanning and prolonged sun exposure for two weeks prior 
  • Cease blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications, omega-oils, multivitamins, vitamin B, vitamin E and glucosamine for one week prior to minimise the risk of bruising 
  • Men are to be clean shaven prior to treatment

Advise your clinician if you: 

  • Are taking topical antibiotics for acne (will need to cease two weeks prior to treatment) 
  • Have active sunburn, solar keratosis or tan  
  • Have cosmetic body implants  
  • Are taking arrhythmia medications (will need to cease prior to treatment)

WHAT TO EXPECT

Prior to your first treatment, your clinician will consult with you to assess your suitability for Dermapen™ and discuss any concerns or questions you may.  

The treatment involves our clinician making small punctures to the outermost layers of your skin with the Dermapen™.  An anaesthetic agent will be applied to minimise discomfort throughout the treatment.
