What is a Derma Pen?
A pen like, spring actioned mechanical device, delivering micro needles into the epidermis and dermis – the layers of the skin – the Dermapen creates micro injuries that force the skin to react and promote collagen regrowth and cell repair.
How a Derma Pen works
The Dermapen treatment is combined with a cleanse, tone and Dermapen application. It creates micro punctures in the skins surface to produce scar-less healing for healthy cell growth.
Benefits of Derma Pen treatments
The Dermapen is a quick and effective means of skin regeneration that won’t cause unnecessary trauma or discomfort. It is an ideal treatment for loose skin, fine lines and wrinkles, smoker’s lines around the lips, large pores, stretch marks or small scars.
Less trauma than dermal rollers & more effective.
The precise nature of the Dermapen ensures that the skin is subject to clean vertical needling only, whereas a roller cuts the skin and causes more trauma as it moves across. The Dermapen allows us to accurately needle the skin only once in each area, and not cause undue damage when moving from one skin area to the next.
Skin needling + skin topicals & creams.
One of the best advantages of skin needling (and in this case the Dermapen) is the combination of the treatment with anti-ageing skin creams and topicals. The punctures in the skin allow the creams to penetrate the skin deeper than when applied to non-needled skin, providing you with faster and significantly improved rejuvenation and resurfacing.
Derma needling for natural outcomes.
The best part of the Dermapen and dermal needling/rolling/injecting in general is that it elicits the natural, human healing response in your skin, promoting collagen production and regeneration of the skin to be more youthful, tight, smooth and beautiful.
What are the side effects?
As the Dermapen does not involve heat or thermal energy, the skin heals quickly post treatment allowing you to face the world with confidence in no time.
How long does the treatment take?
As we allow timing for your complimentary skin analysis, numbing cream application and the Dermapen treatment timing can take around 45 – 60 minutes.
Does the Dermapen treatment hurt?
Typically we apply numbing cream for 20 minutes pre treatment. Once numbing cream has been applied, you may feel a slight vibration on the skins surface but nothing more.
