Dermapen's advanced vertical skin needling technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin's surface it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, whilst allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin's fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
Advanced vertical skin needling promotes scar-less healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments but without the side effects and downtime. It's also more effective than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, the Dermapen causes less trauma and has minimal epidermal (skin) damage, therefore reducing pain and discomfort, and making it a safer more effective treatment. The disposable needles eliminate risk of cross-contamination whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. The Dermapen is so advanced, that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes and lips and on the nose.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)
A. Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments 6 weeks apart
Q. Should I prepare my skin before having a Dermapen Treatment?
A. For optimal results we recommend a pre treatment period of effective active treatment creams such as Vitamin A & C, Resveratrol 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 ongoing optimal results.
Q. How long should it take before I see results?
A. 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.
Q. Is the treatment painful?
A. For minimum needle depths Dermapen treatments are painless. For treatments over 0.5mm deep, a topical anaesthesia cream is applied for 30-40 minutes before treatment to ensure client comfort during the procedure.
Q. Is there any downtime after treatments?
A. 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 Lycogel, a breathable camouflage makeup will seal the skin and cover any redness.
Q. How soon after filler injections can I have a Dermapen treatment?
A. It's recommended to leave at least 2 weeks after filler injections so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. Or have your Dermapen treatment 1-2 days before having fillers injected.
