Dermapen treatment stands out from other skin treatments as it is minimally invasive and non-surgical. Instead, it employs a state-of-the-art automated needle pen with sterile, ultra-fine needles that create microscopic punctures in the dermis where collagen and elastin reside.
Through this advanced process, Dermapen and medical needling mimic the effects of fractionated laser technologies, resulting in thousands of small, controlled wound-healing responses in the deeper layer of the skin. These responses lead to the release of growth factors and the stimulation of fibroblasts, which synthesise collagen.
Over time, this leads to a significant improvement in the quality of the skin surface. As a result, the Dermapen treatment is a powerful tool in the fight against skin issues such as acne scarring, enlarged pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The number of Dermapen treatments required depends on your specific skin concerns and the current condition of your skin. Our dermatologist will determine the appropriate number of treatments during your consultation.
The time it takes to notice the results of Dermapen varies from person to person. However, you will see noticeable improvements within the first few days following the treatment. Even a gentle Dermapen treatment can enhance the texture of your skin.
One of the benefits of Dermapen over older micro-needling methods is that it is more comfortable, and you should only experience minimal discomfort. However, if you have concerns about the potential pain during the treatment, please feel free to discuss them with our dermatologist, who will be happy to recommend the most effective ways to manage any discomfort.
After micro-needling treatment, you may notice temporary redness and swelling in the treated area. However, this is usually only temporary and typically subsides after a few hours.
Following a Dermapen clinical procedure, it is normal to experience minor itching, flaking, or redness during the skin healing. To promote optimal results, the following activities should be avoided for a few days:
Strenuous exercise or activities that cause excessive sweating.
Hot showers, saunas, or steam baths for a few days.
Clinical skin treatments, such as microdermabrasion, laser therapy, chemical peels, or dermal fillers, until your skin fully recovers.
Spray tans or self-tanning lotions to the treated area for a few days.
Swimming in chlorinated pools or the ocean until your skin has fully healed.
Using a Dermapen treatment can provide several benefits, including:
Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face and lips.
