Prior to having a skin needling treatment, a skin consultation is necessary. In the consultation, we’ll discuss how the treatment works, pre/post care and what to expect when having your treatment.

What are the benefits?
The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Dermapen also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, large pores, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

What areas of the body can I treat?
The Dermapen can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, decolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

How is the procedure done?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Dermapen. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What does it feel like?
The feeling associated with the Dermapen is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.

How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 45-60 minutes (including a thorough skin consultation) depending on the size of the area treated.

What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.

The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 3 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.

When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. It is recommended that you are using a good homecare routine pre and post treatment (as a minimum, using a good quality topical vitamin A and vitamin C), to maximise your results.

How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
