The award-winning Dermapen™ microneedling is a procedure that involves using a handheld electrically powered pen device with multiple tiny needles in the tip. When moved over the skin, the needles create thousands of small holes under the surface that are nearly invisible to the naked eye. This stimulates the body's natural healing process, gradually creating a skin surface that is softer and smoother.

Dermapen™ also encourages the skin to produce more collagen, which can help fill in acne scars and fine lines, minimize enlarged pores, and tighten up loose skin. Collagen stimulation via micro needling procedures has been used for centuries. However, the system has been updated over time, allowing adjustment of the depth of the needles during penetration. The depth can be adjusted from 0.1 to 2mm.

It is used to treat:

•    Dull, lifeless skin

•    Fine lines and wrinkles

•    Open pores

•    Uneven skin tone

•    Acne scars

•    Trauma scars

•    Stretch marks

While lasers are capable of producing a type of micro-penetration similar to that of Dermapen™ micro needling, lasers often utilise high levels of heat to penetrate the skin. This excess heat can cause damage to healthy tissue and result in more downtime, as well as more pain. The small size of the Dermapen™ enables Professor MacKenzie to get into smaller areas and is safe for use in more sensitive areas around the eyes, nose, and mouth.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Each patient is different and the time it takes patients to see results with Dermapen™ microneedling will vary. Some patients notice significant improvements in a few days, while other individuals might not see any changes for several weeks. Factors such as the condition of the epidermis and skin type can determine how long it takes to see results. Typically, patients will see rejuvenated skin about 6 to 8 weeks following the first treatment. Because the procedure stimulates natural collagen production, the skin’s appearance should continue to undergo improvement through the long term. Most clients will have 3-6 treatments around 4 weeks apart.

Is The Procedure Safe?

While Dermapen™ microneedling is a skin remodelling treatment that essentially tricks the skin into a state of repair, it does not pose any significant risk of damage. Common side effects such as red skin, pinpoint bruises, stinging, itching, and tightness typically subsides within 4-5 days.

This is the next step up from Dermaroller, offering smoother, less painful and more controllable treatment.
