Dermapen – Microneedling Pen

Dermapen is a revolutionary micro-needling device which uses a unique disposable needle tip with an automated, vibrating motion , it is safer and more effective than traditional skin needling rollers and causes less epidermal damage.

The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of topicals into the skin. It is as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy and IPL, but has a significantly shorter recovery period.

What can Dermapen be used for?

» Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
» Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
» Improving stretch marks
» Minimizes pore size
» Improving keloid, surgical and acne scars

No lotions, makeup or other topical products are applied on the treatment area on the day of the procedure.

What to expect at your visit?

Prior to the procedure our aesthetician will explain the process to you and clearly define your expectations of the treatment and how many sessions will be needed. They will tell you whether or not the results you are looking for will be achievable using this method. It is important that the correct diagnosis has been made by a doctor prior to treatment. Our General Practitioner has a Dermatology Diploma and can perform a skin check if necessary.

There is minimal pain and no anaesthetic is usually needed. This is dependent on the needle depth chosen and you may experience a slight discomfort in certain areas, but again not enough for anaesthetic to be applied to the skin.

What to expect after your treatment?

You may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. You may developed petechia, which is when little blood vessels burst under your skin causing tiny red dots. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.

  • You will be advised to avoid sun exposure for several weeks and use a daily sunscreen.
  • Any tightness or flaking may be relieved with moisturisation
  • The use of scrubs or active ingredients such as vitamin A or AHAs should be stopped for a minimum of 5 days.
  • Redness or petechiae (blood blisters) may be easily concealed with a mineral make-up during recovery.
  • Avoid high-cardio workouts and any activities that may cause heat or sweat for a minimum of 48 hours post-Dermapen treatment.

Results

The results from micro-needling skin remodelling can go on for months after each Dermapen treatment. Results can be seen from one to eight weeks later. Typically you will see results after your first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments when spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
