Skin Needling

 

Non-invasive skin needling restores and rejuvenates the skin, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, tightening and improving elasticity, shrinking enlarged pores, minimising scarring, and repairing pigmentation, sun damaged and ageing skin for an all-round healthier looking complexion.

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 maintain the best results.

TREATMENT PREPARATION

Prior to treatment:

  • 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
  • Avoid cosmetic injections, chemical peels, laser and abrasive facials one week prior
  • Cease blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications, omega-oils, multivitamins, vitamin B, vitamin E and glucosamine one week prior to minimise the risk of bruising

Note: do not cease prescribed medications without first consulting with your general practitioner.

WHAT TO EXPECT

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

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