Dermapen

“THE SMART CHOICE FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN”

The worlds first microneedling choice of medical professionals. The dermapen is a fractional micro needling device with a unique disposable tip. The dermapen uses multiple needles that  vertically pierce the skin with an automated vibrating function to minimize pain.

The principle behind the needling is based on the skins ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, abrasions and other physical trauma. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin destroys old damaged tissue such as acne scarring and wrinkles and replaces it with new fresh healthy collagen.

Skin needling creates  micro injuries to the skin promote collagen and elastin growth as a by product to healing. Also fine channels are created and these carry 80% of nutrients deep into the basal layer. The result is smoother, firmer, younger looking skin.

Dermapens advanced skin needling technology is recommended for

Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of a sterile disposable needle head. Before the procedure a topical anaesthetic is applied to the skin to ensure a virtually painless experience. The treatment takes between 20-60 minutes depending on the area to be treated. During the treatment the practitioner gently moves over the skin, piercing it vertically to create multiple mini insertions quickly and clinically which stimulates the healing cascade.

The automatic vibrating effect  function dramatically reduces pain and discomfort for the patient. The process  of dermapen microneedling can go on for months after and the results are cumulative. Initial results can be seen within 10days (the best results can be seen at 3months as collagen is continually growing  and maturing over a 90day period.) There is minimal downtime after this treatment. You may experience facial redness for 12-24hrs. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities after the treatment, Breathable makeup can be worn over the treatment. Dermapen can be used safely in all skin types!
