What can it do for you?

- Improves smoker’s lines around the lips
- Minimize large pores

How does it work?
Dermapen’s advanced skin needling technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating action. Natural collagen production is stimulated, whilst fine channels are created in the skin that can carry up to 80% more topical nutients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster skin resurfacing. The skin is tricked into repairing itself.
Advanced skin needling give results similar to fractional laser treatments but withouth the side effects and downtime. It’s also more effective than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
The Dermapen is so advanced that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach áreas, such as around the eyes and lips, and on the nose. whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. This treatment induces elastin and collagen production, which plump out wrinkles as well as create traction (skin tightening effect).
Your therapist will assess your skin and treatment área to reccomend a treatment plan suitable for you.
How to care for your skin between DERMAPEN treatments:
STEP 1- ADVANCED RESURFACING
Your doctor or therapist will apply a suitable topical treatment to compliment your advanced skin needling. Between treatments continue using this recommended treatment solution.
STEP 2- HYDRATE & STRENGTHEN
For best results, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the harsh environment to make it healthy and strong. Always wear appropriate sun protection.
STEP 3-COVER< RECOVER & PROTECT FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN
It’s unlikely you’ll have any side effects after your treatment. However if you do experience redness or sensitive skin we recommend you use a post procedure breathable makeup (Lycogel). This will help you get back to your everyday activities without anyone suspecting you have even had a treatment.
Most frequently asked questions:
How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)
Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: <>10 treatments 4-6 weeks apart
Should I prepare my skin before having a Dermapen treatment?
For optimal results we recommend a period of effective active treatment creams such as Vit A, C or Resveratrol & Procyanidin to allow the skin’s strength to build- up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Continue to use these recommended solutions after the treatments for a period of 6 weeks.
How long should it take befor I see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimum needle depths Dermapen treatments are painless. For treatments over 0.5mm deep, a topical anaesthetica crea mis applied 45 min before treatments and will render the treatments completely pain-free.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
How soon after filler injections can I have a Dermapen treatment?
It’s recommended to leave at least 4 days after filler injections so that any post treatment bruisong from the fillers can settle. Or have your Dermapen treatment 1- 2 days before having your fillers or Botox injected.
