DermaPen3TM Micro Needling.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Dermapen3TM. The latest in non ablative skin rejuvenation techniques.
Suitable for treating sagging, thinning skin, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scaring, open pores, pigmentation and stretch marks
Dermapen's Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needling (AOVNTM) technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skins 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 skins fibroblasts to feed underlying cells found in
the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorbtion of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulation repair and faster resurfacing results .
Advanced vertical skin needling promotes scar-less healing and deposition of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments but without the side effects and downtime. Its 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 making it a safer, more effective treatment. The disposible needles eliminate risk of cross-contamination. Unlike traditional roller devices which offer only one depth of needle per roller, Dermapen offers adjustable depths which means we can tailor your treatment according to skin thickness and reach all hard to get areas in a single treatment, we can even target deeper scars individually, thus saving you time and money on aditional treatment devices.
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, which is impossible with a roller.
Unlike traditional Lasers, IPL or Fractional Laser treatments, Dermapen does not rely on heat to cause destruction to the skin tissue, therefore it can safely be used on all skin tones and textures.
A topical Anaesthetic (numbing) cream is applied to the treatment area for 30-45 mins prior to treatment. Due to the use of topical numbing cream,

Q: Is skin needling painful?
A: No. Because of the use of a topical numbing cream, treatments are virtually painless. Dermapen is less painful than conventional dermal rollering treatments. You may feel a slight prickling on boney areas or light pressure but most people are perfectly comforatable with it.
Q: How will my skin look after treatment?
A: A feeling of tighness is experienced and a "sunburn" look is usually apparent immediatly after treatment, a mild swelling may also occur, this subsides over the next 24 hours. Slight redness may last 1-3 days but can be covered with mineral make up.
Your skin may feel tight and dry for 3-5 days. Your skin may feel slightly rough by the 3rd day as dead cells shed, however this is not noticable to most people.
Recovery with Dermapen is significantly faster than conventional dermal rollering techniques. Skin is usually back to normal within 3-5 days however some thinner skins may take up to 7 days.
Q: How long does the treatment take?
A: Treatment itself only takes 20-30minutes, however allow 30min for the topical numbing cream to take effect prior & a further 20min for post treatment mask. Roughly allow 90 mins for complete treatment time. Allow added time on first treatment to fill in treatment consultation forms.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: Everyone is unique, and results do vary from one person to the other. Age, health, skin health & condition all play a part in end results, however as a guide; For general freshening 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Skin rejuvenation, fine lines & skin tightening 4-6 treatments are usually desired, spaced approx 4-8 weeks apart. For acne scaring or sundamaged skin 6-10 treatments are usually expected, spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Q: What areas can be treated?
A: Because Dermapen has adjustable needle depths all areas of the face can be treated in one session without the need to use additiional devices (like the rollering method) making it a more ecconomical treatment.
Open pores, sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation can all be treated as can stretch marks and atrophic scaring.
Q: When will I see results?
A: Because new collagen doesnt happen over night, you must be patient. You will notice an improvement about a month after your first treatment and friends will coment that you are looking good. Many clients report that they can see the difference within a week, however the real results are seen after 4-6 months and are accumulative, so they just get better. You start seeing a noticable change in skin texture usually by the 4th treatment and results continue to increase with further treatments and there after.
Q: How long do results last?
A: Like all rejuvenation treatments you do need to maintain some amount of upkeep. Your new collagen will contunue to improve over 6-12 months and results can last up to 5 years. It is recommended that you do a top up treatment 1-2 times a year to maintain your results and further stimulate the healthy collagen development.
Q: Do I need to use anything at home before?
A: We recommend that in order to ensure the best results are achieved for your skin that you have a good corrective skincare regime, this may include the use of AHA's, Vitamin A and good hydration.
We may recommend using products with Vitamin A, Hyularonic Acid and Antioxidants for a minimum of 2-4 weeks before comencment of your Dermapen treatment to ensure skin is healthy, hydrated and ensure a good collagen production.
In some cases we may recomend a Microdermabrasion treatment a week before your Dermapen treatment to ensure the best results.
It is best to avoid the use of AHA's for 48 hours prior to treatment to avoid any excessive erythema (redness)
Q: Do I need to use anything at home after?
A: Your skin may feel warm and slightly swollen when you get home, you can use cold compresses to calm the skin.
We will apply everything your skin needs to carry you through to the next morning including a breathable camoflauge after treatment to cover any redness.
We will advise you to use specific home care treatments to ensure speedy recovery and calming skin repair for the 5 days following your treatment. This may include a gentle cleanser, Hydrating and/or nourishing products.
You cannot apply regular make up for 24 hours nor use any products containing AHA's, perfumes or colourants whilst skin is healing (usually 5 days)
Sun screen is vital after treatment, however you must avoid regular chemical sunscreens and use only sunscreens containing zinc oxide
Mineral make up can be worn 24 hours after your treatment. Your regular make up can be worn after 48 hours
We also strongly advise that you do not smoke when undergoing skin needling as cigarette smoking damages your cells DNA and restricts collagen growth.
Hot baths, showers and saunas are also to be avoided for at least 5 days. tepid showers are fine, just avoid hot water on the face as it can irritate and slow healing
SPF 30+ must be applied daily to avoid further UV damage and to ensure the best results for your skin.
