The Dermapen offers unparalleled collagen induction therapy (CIT) by harnessing the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,300 micro punctures per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalizing various skin functions.

Dermapen controlled precision promotes the three phases of CIT mechanics, because the process never involves heat or thermal energy, does not use harsh chemicals or cause unnecessary trauma, the skin heals quickly, requiring virtually no downtime.

Because the process activated via micro-needling essentially generates new healthy skin cells to replace aged or damaged ones, applications for the Dermapen are very diverse. The device has been used to treat visible signs of aging, such as skin atrophy and wrinkles, as well as various types of acne scarring, stretch marks, several types of pigmentation disorders, sun damaged skin, and more.

Your clinician will perform a full skin consult prior to treatment as the number of treatments depends on the desired outcome for the skin.

Pre treatment care

Preparing for Skin Needling

  • A skin care regime to be followed for at least 2 weeks prior to your needling procedure. This will assist to soften, repair and prepare your skin prior to treatment. This will ultimately make your procedure more effective as a healthy skin always responds better to treatment.

  • Undergoing a Microdermabrasion prior to Skin Needling procedure may be recommended to enhance the treatment. This is an advanced treatment and will only be performed if recommended by your practitioner.

  • Skin Needling must not be performed until 2 weeks after Botox or Dermal Fillers.

  • If you are taking a blood thinning medication such as Nurofen/Aspirin that increases your propensity to bruise, it is advised to suspend this medication temporarily just prior to your treatment if agreed with your treating physician.

  • If you are prone to cold sores please ensure you commence taking your anti-viral medication at least 1 day prior to your treatment.

  • If you are using Retinoic Acid (prescription topical Vitamin A) on the skin, please cease use for 48 hours prior to treatment.

  • If you have ever had permanent filler you will not be suitable for this treatment.

Post treatment care

What to expect after your treatment

  • The treated area will look red and slightly puffy for a day or two with an appearance as though the skin has been sunburnt or wind burnt. Occasionally minor scratches will occur. These may last for a few days and can be covered with makeup (12 hours after the treatment). The deeper we penetrate, the more red and longer lasting the scratches will be. Skin needling stimulates your body to manufacture more of its own natural collagen and this process will continue for several weeks to months and even up to two years in some cases. Responses will vary. Some clients see a discernible difference within a few weeks whilst others take longer.

  • Occasionally if there has been several passes performed over an area, pustules and light scratching may form as a result. Generally this response will heal within 24 to 48 hours.

  • It is important to avoid facial waxing, electrolysis, IPL or any laser procedure and the use of hair removal creams for 2 weeks after your treatment.

  • Please follow the post care homecare as prescribed and ensure that the skin is kept moist with a Vitamin B serum ,Rich Hydrating Moisturiser and a SPF 30-50+ Sunscreen.

  • Do not use makeup including Mineral Makeup for 12 hours following the Skin Needling.

  • Do not pick or peel the skin if it starts to flake.

Resume your active skincare products only after the area has healed completely. This could be from 48 hours to 5 days.

Additional Visits

  • Depending on what results you want to achieve an initial course of treatments is usually scheduled at 4 – 6 weekly intervals. Some clients find that maintenance treatments (following the recommended course of treatments) are required at 3 to 6 monthly intervals; this will be discussed at the completion of your treatment. Results are very dependent on diet,general health, how well your skin is taken care of at home and how well it is protected from the sun.

Scar Relaxation aftercare

  • Scar relaxation treatments can be quite deep. Healing may take 1-4 days during which it is recommended that the area is covered with a loose protective dressing such as clean gauze during the day. Uncover the treated area whilst sleeping. Panadol may be taken as necessary to relieve temporary discomfort. Do not use make up on unhealed skin as this can create a dark tattooing effect.

  • Treatments (following the recommended course of treatments) are required at 3 to 6 monthly intervals; this will be discussed at the completion of your treatment. Results are very dependent on diet,general health, how well your skin is taken care of at home and how well it is protected from the sun.
