Dermapen™ is the perfect solution to a wide range of cosmetic indications, including:
More importantly Dermapen™ is virtually painless, even for hard-to-reach and delicate areas such as around the eyes, nose and lips where fine lines and wrinkles are most visible, all this with very little to no down time. Dermapen™ specialised cosmeceutical post-care, DP Dermaceuticals™, allows you to resume normal activities in the shortest possible time.
Every Dermapen™ needle tip is actually made up of 12 smaller needles, which use proprietary technology to penetrate vertically into the skin. This creates small, micro-skin channels, while stimulating the skin’s natural ability to heal itself and increasing the production of new collagen.
By creating these micro-punctures in the skin, it stimulates collagen production, tightens pores, improves muscle tone and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment is similar to laser treatments, but without the severe side effects or the long recovery time. Adding to that benefit, studies have shown that Dermapen™ treatments are more effective than traditional microdermabrasion and chemical peels, due to how the disposable needles reduce the risk of cross-contamination. The adjustable needle depth also allows a treatment that adapts to individual client’s needs.
The Dermapen™ is the new number one treatment to induce new collagen production. If your skin suffers from fine lines, wrinkles, sagging contours, open pores or is tired and luck lustre Dermapen™ is the treatment for you. The Dermapen™ also treats all types of scarring plus acne scarring, ice pick marks and stretch marks with the damaged tissue being replaced by fresh new collagen to reduce the indentation and to even out the skin tone.
The tiny micro punctures produced by the Dermapen™ cause the skin to respond by producing collagen and elastin (two of the key building blocks of our skin). With the structure of the skin left largely intact the skin heals 4-7 days* post treatment. Dermapen™ is also suitable for all skin types.
Unlike other needling treatments the Dermapen™ has a unique oscillating motor which dissipates nerve receptors which allows for a more comfortable treatment. After the treatment the skin will feel warm and slightly tight similar to that of slight sunburn. This feeling will progressively reduce after a 2 day* period.
Dermapen™ technology allows for effortless facial needling with minimal side effects and down time. The fractional skin treatment ensures the skin’s integrity is never compromised with any scabbing, bruising or burn risk. The appearance of small blood blisters is common around areas of thinner skin quality especially around the crow’s feet and under-eyes. These are perfectly normal and usually disappear within 3-4 days*.
The skin will feel and look slightly red for up to 3 days* post treatment with Dermapen™. This may be accompanied by a feeling of tightness and the appearance of slight flaking. The application of a light moisturiser and sunscreen will increase comfort and reduce inflammation. A non-occlusive mineral make-up may be used to conceal any redness. You may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment again this is normal*. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Your Dermapen™ treatment will trigger your skin’s natural healing mechanism and results will be seen from 2-4 weeks* post treatment. The repair cascade may continue to deliver results for up to 24 months* post treatment. According to your concerns a course of treatments may be recommended to deliver sustained long lasting skin corrections and results. Dermapen™ sessions are typically delivered 6-8 weeks apart according to the clients concerns.
