Dermapen™ Micro-Needling Treatment is a device that utilises multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin, more commonly known as skin needling. Skin needling causes a controlled wound within the skin to encourage its own natural repairing process. The result is an increased production of collagen fibres and healthier-looking skin. Dermapen can be used to treat the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, vertical lip lines, enlarged/open pores, stretch marks, acne scars and surgical scars.
What will the treatment involve?
The standard Dermapen™ Micro-Needling treatment includes a double cleanse, gentle enzymatic exfoliation, LED light therapy, numbing cream application (if needed), cooling gel peptide mask and finishing products. This treatment costs $250 and will generally take between 90 to 120 minutes.
For clients who don’t have much time on their hands but still want to benefit from great results delivered by this treatment we offer the Express Dermapen™ Micro-Needling Treatment.
This service costs $150 for approximately 75 minutes and includes a double cleanse, LED light therapy and finishing products. This treatment is limited to the face only; the standard treatment can be extended slightly down onto the neck.
How should I prepare my skin for a Dermapen treatment?
During your pre-treatment consult one of our Dermal Therapists will asses your skin and recommend products to use two weeks prior to your Dermapen treatment. For optimal results we encourage the use of active ingredients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C and AHA exfoliants like Lactic Acid. This allows the skin to strengthen (especially in delicate areas), speed up the healing process and reduces the likeliness of complications.
Is the treatment uncomfortable?
Depending on the depth of the needles utilised, discomfort during skin needling can vary. Generally, topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin 30 minutes before treatment, however, topical numbing is discouraged as it acts as a vasoconstrictor. Vasoconstriction slows down the natural inflammatory response that is beneficial for new collagen fibres.
Is there any downtime?
Downtime varies between individuals, but generally the skin can remain pink and a bit sensitive for 1 – 2 days post treatment. We recommend to avoid sun exposure, intense activities and to interrupt the use of active ingredients for 2 – 4 days post skin needling.
How many treatments are recommended?
As a general rule, 4-6 treatments are recommended for skin rejuvenation with a minimum of 4 weeks between treatments. For acne scarring and stretch marks, 6 or more treatments are recommended.
What kind of result can I expect?
The skin is rejuvenated and can be noticeable even after one treatment (think of when a wound heals, new tissue is visible). As collagen production is a lengthy process, full results can be seen up to six month after a treatment.
