The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device which rejuvenates, tightens and lifts the skin, resulting in a refreshed and more youthful looking complexion.
It is a quick and highly effective treatment that attracts patients to our clinic from throughout Surrey and Hampshire.
How does Dermapen™ treatment work?
Treatment with Dermapen™ involves using multiple thin needles to create micro-punctures in the skin, which amazingly triggers the production of collagen deep down in the dermis. The high speed of the pen increases the effectiveness of the treatment and reduces any pain or discomfort experienced during the procedure.
Dermapen™ is more effective and comfortable than Dermaroller treatments. Moreover, it achieves excellent results, creating smoother, brighter and healthier looking skin and minimizes the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scarring.
What is Dermapen™ micro-needling useful for?
- Facial and décolletage lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Lack of skin firmness and elasticity
- Acne and chicken pox scars
- Stretch marks
Is any anaesthetic used?
There is no need for a topical anaesthetic as this treatment is very comfortable.
What happens afterwards?
After the procedure, your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin. Your body will form new collagen and elastin, generate new skin cells and enhance the blood supply.
It can take up to six weeks before you will experience visible signs of regeneration and repair and the process will continue over the following months resulting in gradual and long-lasting improvements to your skin.
How many treatments will I need?
We normally recommend a series of three treatments, approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart.
For the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring we may recommend a longer course of up to five sessions.
Can Dermapen™ treat scars?
The Dermapen™ is very effective at treating facial scars, including acne pits and isolated scars. In more details, the treatment works by stimulating collagen growth and over time this new collagen fills in the scar.
The area will be red after treatment but there should be no down time. There are few side effects and your skin will heal quickly.
