Dermapen Dermal Needling

This cutting edge technique provides an effective method to rejuvenate facial skin.

 

It helps minimise pore size, correct pigmentation, and is safe for darker pigmented skins. This treatment can also help minimise the appearance of scars.

 

The Dermapen uses multiple very fine needles on a pen-like applicator.  Local anaesthetic cream or gel is used to numb the skin, then the dermapen is passed across the skin.

 

The effects on the skin occur via two methods.  Firstly, using the fine needles creates a controlled “micro-injury” to the skin.  The healing that occurs after the injury stimulates collagen and fibroblast activity which result in a tighter and younger looking skin.

 

In addition, the needling directly allows delivery of human growth factors or serums to the deep and mid-dermis (deeper layers) of the skin, to further stimulate collagen and fibroblast activity.  This results in a tighter and brighter appearance of the skin.

 

There may be a period of several hours after the treatment where the skin can appear red, but there is no “down-time” to this treatment.  New collagen and elastin fibres are formed through this wound healing process, and strengthening and tightening the skin over a period of 4 – 6 treatments.  The skin continues to show signs of improvement for a period of up to 2 years even after the final needling treatment is performed.
