Dermapen Microneedling

You can have clear, wrinkle-free skin

Dermapen is a new and innovative technique which will enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for invasive surgery. The Dermapen will give you improved skin texture and tone whilst tightening your pores and giving you an overall refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful look.

Not just restricted to the face, the Dermapen can be used to treat the neck and chest where keloid, surgical or acne scars are visible.

Dermapen banishes:

Acne Scars

Melasma and pigmentation from sun damage and age spots

Wrinkles on face, neck and décolleté

Stretch Marks

What's involved?

The Dermapen is a specially designed wand consisting of multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin causing what are known as micro-wounds. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body's innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the natural physiology of skin. Subsequently, new collagen and elastin are formed giving your skin a new life with improved skin texture and tone, firmness and hydration.

Imagine what it will be like to remove those little imperfections and to smooth away the signs of an aging skin, those little wrinkles and the ‘papery’ look on your neck and décolletage.  Radiant, resilient skin will shed the years and your friends and family will only notice that you’re looking really fabulous!

Treatment FAQS

What is the Dermaroller?

The Dermaroller is a cylindrical shaped drum studded with very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue & to stimulate skin cells to grow. As a result new collagen and blood vessels grow, improving the overall quality of your skin.

What is the difference to other skin rejuvenation techniques?

Unlike other methods there is NO tissue destruction and so no wounds to heal. The Dermaroller significantly improves atrophic scars & improves skin texture.

What effects does the Dermaroller have on the skin?

It improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This in return improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also improves hyper-pigmentation as well as hypo-pigmentation. Dermaroller reduces disfiguring scars & acne scars, stimulates new collagen fibres, improves blood supply and evens out pigmentation.

How is the procedure performed & does it hurt?

The skin is cleaned and afterwards numbed with an appropriate numbing cream so it should not hurt at all. Skin is thoroughly needled in such a way, that each skin part is needled about 15 to 20 times. An even flushing is the best indication for a perfect medical performance.

Can it be performed on any skin colour?

Since Dermaroller does not use thermal heat (unlike IPL & Lasers) it is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colours. There is hardly any risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

How often can the Dermaroller procedure be repeated?

For skin rejuevenation we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 6 to 8 weeks between treatments. For Scar Reduction Therapy an average of 3 to 5 treatments are recommended, with an improvement of 70-80%. Unlike ablative procedures for facial skin only, the Dermaroller can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc).

What are the side effects of a Dermaroller procedure?

There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.

Risks of post-op infections?

Since the tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and provided the procedure is done under clinical conditions, post-op infections are very unlikely.

What is the down time after a Dermaroller treatment?

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend healing minerals, peptides or hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sun screen. We also recommend the use of mineral makeup to help with the healing.

What should I avoid on my skin?

To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days DO NOT use AHA’s (Glycolic Acid), Retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients.

What should I use on my skin after the treatment?

An Anti-Inflammatory Cleanser to soothe, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate, Copper to help heal, Zinc to help heal but also to protect.

What are the differences in Dermaroller models?

Principally, there are none - both models (medical and home care) only differ in needle size. While the medical Dermaroller has longer needles - to induce collagen & reduce scars in deeper skin layers, the needles of the Home Care Dermaroller are very short, not more than 0.2 mm. The Home Care Dermaroller serves the following purposes: a) To enhance active substance through the skin barrier(stratum corneum) b) To improve and support results after and in between skin rejuvenation treatments by: stimulating epidermal cells for proliferation that results in a faster renewal cycle of the epidermis and thickens the epidermal cell layers.

The Home Care Dermaroller is NOT suitable for collagen treatments, but it helps to maintain a beautiful skin.
