Dermapen micro-needling uses a small dermatology treatment device (the dermapen), for a micro-needling procedure which has the capability to effectively address skin problems such as ageing, fine lines, stretch marks and acne scars.
The dermapen derives its name from the word ‘dermatology’ and a ‘pen’, which it resembles in appearance. The dermapen micro-needling treatment is able to achieve skin which is tighter, brighter and refreshed. Dermapen is now favoured by cosmetic experts around the world, after having proved its efficiency and effectiveness, as well as flexibility in how it is used.
This is a titanium device that is rolled over the skin to create thousands of tiny contact points. This causes the body to create a wound healing process for rejuvenated, smoother and younger looking skin.
Dermaroller is good for clients who need a large area treated.
Benefits of Dermapen Micro-needling
Aside from its anti-aging and scar reducing benefits, dermapen micro-needling has many other benefits including:
• Minimizing enlarged pores

• Treating hair loss problems such as alopecia
• Helps the skin to absorb products more efficiently, ensuring the most benefits can be received from skin care products
Will dermapen micro-needling hurt?
A topical anaesthetic will be administered prior to treatment to ensure the treatment is painless.
How many times will the pen puncture my skin?
The dermapen is able to create 1,300 micro punctures per second, this number of punctures stimulates the skin to produce collagen and elastin without compromising normal skin functions.
How should I prepare for the treatment?
Drinking lots of water and trying to eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables in the week before your treatment will help prepare your skin for the treatment. Maintaining a good skin care routine is also advisable and it is recommended you exfoliate your skin 2-3 days before your treatment.
How is a dermapen different from a dermaroller?
Dermapen treatment is generally considered to be superior to a dermaroller as it is less painful and a dermapen treatment has less recovery time.
How many dermapen treatments will be required?
Skin rejuvenation can be achieved with one treatment, however, for more extensive problems such as acne scarring, multiple treatments may be required.
