MICRO NEEDLING WITH DERMAPEN®

SKIN Dermatology's expert team use the state of the art skin micro needling technology Dermapen® to restore your skin's complexion. 

Micro needling is designed for:

  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Enlarged pores

  • Dull, devitalized sun damaged skin

  • Acne scarring

  • Uneven skin texture

Is Dermapen® micro needling therapy painful?

You will feel many fine needles on your skin area where the nurse is working. For most people, it is far more comfortable with the Dermapen® than it is with a traditional roller. Because we are a specialised medical clinic, the treatment can be made even more comfortable with the use of a skin anesthetic and other supportive measures.

How many Dermapen® treatments are required?

Age and skin conditions will determine the number of treatments you may require to achieve the maximum effect. Common skin conditions may require anywhere between 2-6 treatments with a 1 month interval between visits depending on your treatment plan.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

The skin may be pink or appear mild to moderately ‘sunburned’ for the first 24-48 hours after your treatment and it can also feel a little sunburned. There is no downtime associated with Dermapen®treatment. You may want to wear mineral makeup on skin to cover any redness.

You will need to regularly apply sunblock and to take extra care to avoid sun exposure for at least the first week after treatment.

CAN Dermapen® MICRO NEEDLING BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?

After collagen fillers a two week wait is recommended, or alternatively you can have the micro needling a week before the filler treatment.

For additional benefit use SKIN's collagen induction program, combining micro needling with a chemical peel. Let our team's expert knowledge select a treatment plan that will suit the needs of your skin. Book a complimentary appointment with our appearance nurses to find out more.
