SKIN NEEDLING - Derma pen.
Replenish collagen, smooth wrinkles & tighten skin.
What IS SKIN NEEDLING?
The natural production of elastin and collagen and supporting cells naturally diminish as we age, leading to sagging and hollows in the skin. Stimulating the production of collagen and elastin is known as skin needling or collagen induction. The Dermapen is our preferred device as it is able to enhance the process of collagen induction.
Skin needling consists of multiple fine needles that vertically enter the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When Dermapen is used at the right depth across the skin`s surface, it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, while creating fine channels in the skin. These channels enable up to 80% or more of the ingredients found in skincare products to penetrate to the deeper levels of your skin. The benefit of adjustable needle depths with Dermapen allows for a treatment tailored to your individual needs.

WHAT ARE THE DESIRED RESULTS?

Stimulation of collagen
Increased skin cell proliferation
Increased cell regeneration
Increased topical product absorption
Reduce the size and appearance of pores
Reduce the size and appearance of scar tissue

Is it painful?
Skin needling with the Dermapen is undertaken with minimal discomfort and anaesthetic cream can be used prior to treatment. Dermapen causes less discomfort and downtime when compared to a skin roller device making it the more desirable treatment..
What are the potential risks?
Dermapen is a safe procedure with very low risks. Scarring and infection are very rare.
What are the side effects?
Most people can return to normal daily activities immediately after treatment. However, moderate redness and swelling will be present for around 48 hours. The signs of a strong and successful treatment may include the presence of petechiae (tiny red dots) that are completely harmless and will disappear in a few days.
