Dermapen – Skin Needling Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Dermapen Skin Needling Therapy (or collagen induction therapy) is one of the most advanced skin rejuvenation therapies available today for the treatment of:
- Fine Lines & wrinkles
- Aged & sagging skin
- Skin tightening & rejuvenation
- Large pores
- Scars (acne, surgical and burns)
- Stretch Marks
- Smokers lines around the lips
As we age the natural production of the skins supporting cells, collagen and elastin naturally diminish which leads to wrinkles, sagging and hollows in the skin. Stimulating the skin to produce more collagen and elastin is called collagen induction. Skin Needling using the Dermapen takes this effective collagen induction to the next level resulting in amazing results.
How Does The Dermapen Work?
The Dermapen’s advanced vertical skin needling technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin’s surface it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, whilst allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skins fibroblasts . This increased absorption into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
Why Choose The Dermapen As A Treatment?
The Dermapen causes less discomfort and has minimal skin damage making it a more effective treatment with little downtime required. Disposable needles are used to eliminate the risk of cross contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. The Dermapen is so advanced that it also has the advantage of being able to effectively treat hard to reach places (e.g around the eyes, nose and lips). And because of the vertical delivery the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the treatment painful?
Skin needling with the new Derma Pen is extremely comfortable when teamed up with our topical anaesthetic cream. The treatment starts with the application of our own formula of a pharmacy compounded topical anaesthetic cream applied half an hour before the treatment. The treatment itself takes approximately 30 minutes for a full face.
Will I see immediate results?
Typically you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments.
Will I be able to return to normal daily activities?
There is generally no down time after your treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable moisturiser will seal the skin. There will be mild redness immediately after the treatment which can be covered up with camouflage make up the same day as treatment if desired for an immediate return to work or daily activities.
The post treatment redness looks like a mild sunburn which lasts from 1-3 days.
