Dermapen is the latest innovation in skin micro needling therapy and is quickly becoming the optimal choice in skin rejuvenation due to the its low risk profile and minimal downtime. The Dermapen has become the new industry standard for skin micro needling providing excellent results. This revolutionary device is simple yet powerful with many distinct advantages over dermal rollers taking skin needling treatment to new heights.
Disposable Dermapen needles are used to eliminate the risk of cross contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. The Dermapen also has the advantage of being able to effectively treat hard to reach places (e.g around the eyes, nose and lips). Due to this vertical feature, the Dermapen is great for treating keloid and surgical scars because of its ability to effectively penetrate and break down scar tissue.
Your skin has a self-rejuvenating function that is capable of significantly reducing blemishes caused by acne, trauma, pigmentation and a range of other ailments. Micro-needling activates this process by causing tiny punctures across the treated area. As your skin heals, it produces collagen which forms a new layer of fresh tissue, creating a more youthful appearance on the surface and fighting antibodies beneath.
Dermapen Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needling (AOVN™) technology uses microderm needles to vertically rejuvenate the skin. The automated vibrating function allows up to 1300 micro-channels per second to be created in the skin. The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients. This allows for the delivery of treatment actives to feed underlying cells. This increased absorption accelerates more stimulation, repair and faster resurfacing results.
As it glides across the skin’s surface, natural collagen production is stimulated encouraging normalised deposition. This provides an effect similar to fractional laser treatments without the downtime.
Skin needling procedures are performed by professionally trained practitioners with the use of the sterile Dermapen in our clinic. The procedure is normally completed within 30-45 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the skin to ensure comfort and a painless experience. After the skin is numbed, the Dermapen will be administered to your skin gently and it will slide across the skin with light pressure to puncture the outermost layers of the skin and create minuscule sub-cutaneous injuries. The needle length is selected depending on the depth of the treatment (from 0,5 to 2,5 mm). For treating acne and other scars the needle length of 1.5mm to 2,5 mm is used and for treating aging and wrinkles the needle length of 0.5 mm to 1.5 mm is used. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year, yet they close within less than an hour causing no bruising or injury.
Three or four treatments may be recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may require upward of five treatments. An interval of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments is typically recommended. There can also be some maintenance treatments at intervals of every 3 to 6 months.
