The Dermapen is used as a treatment for fine lines & wrinkles, it glides over your skin & creates micro-point punctures in the skin.  The body perceives the punctures as damage & this stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen & elastin.

Dermapen micro-needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself when it encounters physical damage like cuts, burns & abrasions, where old & damaged tissue is replaced with new tissue.  The micro “injuries” created during the treatment triggers new collagen synthesis, but does not pose a risk of permanent scarring.  Complications and discomfort is minimised and the results is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.  It is minimally, invasive, involves minimal downtime, rapid healing & requires simple after-care

How is the treatment administered?

Dermapen procedures are performed in a safe manner, using the sterile Dermapen needle head.

What is the skin’s appearance after the treatment?

Your skin will be red & flushed, similar to moderate sunburn.  You may also experience skin tightness & mild sensitivity to touch on the treated area for a few hours after the treatment.  The skin will be completely healed within 24 hours.

When do I start seeing results?

The healing time of each person varies, but visible results of skin rejuvenation are usually seen after 6 weeks following the procedure & improve further over time.
