Dermapen is a micro-needling treatment which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It replaces the E-Dermastamp (E-DS) treatment.
What is Dermapen used for?
Dermapen is ideal for treating fine lines, wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, dilated pores, scars from surgery, injury and acne, stretch marks and uneven or excess pigmentation in the skin, including skin conditions such as vitiligo and rosacea. It can also be used to treat milia (small cysts under the skin) and alopecia.
What skin types is Dermapen suitable for?
It is suitable for all skin types.
How does Dermapen work?
The device stimulates the skin with 16 surgical-grade micro needles. This encourages the production of collagen and elastin by stimulating the skin’s natural healing response. The increase in collagen and elastin rejuvenates and revitalises the skin. Dermapen treatment can only be performed by a qualified practitioner.
How is Dermapen different to Dermaroller?
Dermaroller rolls over the skin, whereas the Dermapen device delivers vertical channels into the skin, minimising damage, downtime and discomfort. The device delivers 2200 channels a second to stimulate collagen production. Unlike Dermaroller, the speed and depth can be customised.
What happens after treatment?
Dermapen has shorter down-time than comparable treatments such as Dermaroller, laser resurfacing and chemical peels. Redness of the skin (erythema) may last up to two days post-treatment. In the two days following treatment you should avoid UV exposure (sun exposure), intensive exercise, hot showers and other clinical treatments, to allow the skin to heal fully. You should also avoid spray or self-tanning, swimming in chlorinated pools or the ocean, and tattooing of any kind for the first two days.
How soon will I see results?
Results are typically seen after just one treatment, but cumulative treatments may be required to achieve the full desired result. Generalised rejuvenation can be achieved in as little as three treatments, other conditions may need more sessions. The regenerating process will continue for up to 24 months post-treatment.
