Micro-Needling – Dermapen: Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation


Equipped with the world’s most Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needling technology, Dermapen provides patients with a more effective, minimally invasive and affordable treatment option that works to tighten, lift, rejuvenate and resurface the skin.

It’s high quality multiple needles with automatic oscillating functions gently piece the skin, stimulating natural collagen reproduction whilst allowing fine fractional micro-channels to be created. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients allowing for treatment delivery deep intothe skin to feed underlying cells. This increased ab-sorption of active ingredients creates stimulated re-pairand faster resurfacing results.

In addition, Dermapen is virtuallypainless, 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 vs Roller

When compared to traditional dermal rollers, Dermapen 3TM causes less epidermal (skin) damage, reducing levels of pain and discomfort. As a result Dermapen 3TM is a safer, more comfortable, and more effective micro-needling treatment (see image below). Dermapen 3TM’s single use cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depth allows for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. Dermapen 3TM is so advanced, it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips and on the nose.

Acne Scarring

The Dermapen™ treatment can provide drastic results improving the appearances of the scars. The micro needles of the Dermapen™ create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The Dermapen™ keeps the epidermis integrity full intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain.

Surgical Scars

The challenge of a surgical scar lies within the matrix of all the forms or categories of the scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. The Dermapen’s™ unique vertical stamping and depth control up to 2.5mm makes treating scars superior to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (11 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.

Stretch Marks

Various treatments are available for the purpose of improving the appearance of existing stretch marks, including laser treatments, dermabrasion, and prescription retinoids. Some cream manufacturers claim the best results are achieved on recent stretch marks; however, few studies exist to support these claims. The use of the Dermapen™ uses the bodies’ natural solution for unsightly stretch marks. New collagen growth and stimulation is more effective for reducing and fading stretch marks. The Dermapen ™ does this through Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).

Fine lines and wrinkles

The Dermapen® promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The most effective way to stimulate or “Induce” new skin is by micro-needling with the Dermapen’s™ vertical stamping method. This new stimulation can be done quickly and easily while keeping the epidermis intact and down-time to a minimum.


How long should it take before I see results?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.

Is there any downtime after treatments?

Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hoursafterthetreatment.Mostpeopleareabletoreturn to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

Is the treatment painful?

For minimal needle depths, DermapenTM Treatments are relatively painless. Treatments using depths over 0.5mm may require a topical anaesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments virtually pain-free.

How soon after injections can I have a Treatment

While there is no clinical evidence that DermapenTM Treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is important to let your clinician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planning on having one done in the near future. Your clinician will be able to advise you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately.

How many treatments are recommended?

Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments          4 weeks apart

Acne scarring: 6 treatments             4 weeks apart
