Dermal Needling, Collagen Induction Therapy – Meet The Dermapen™

The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device that delivers thousands of tiny micro-needles into the skin (1300 per second to be precise!) creating controlled injury to induce the skin’s natural healing response. This process stimulates collagen and elastin renewal and aids in normalising the skins functions that begin to impair over time.

The Dermapen™ creates reproducible and coherent punctures into the skin, without the use of heat; this treatment can safely be used on most skin types and can be used for a multitude of skin health purposes, including fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne and surgical scars, pigmentation, enlarged pores and much more. A wonderful skin “pick me up” that infuses Hyaluronic Acid into the skin, an intense hydrating treatment that oxygenates the skin, giving rise to new blood vessel formation and nutrient delivery. The production of new collagen has been seen to continue for up to 12 months post procedure. Dermal needling treatments can also be used in conjunction with other infusion serums, tailored to your skin requirements.

Treatments usually begin with a thorough skin assessment, skin preparation specific to your skin needs and a discussion around expectations and goals. Treatments take around 60 minutes, and are well tolerated. A series of treatments at 4-6 week intervals is recommended.

Dermal needling treatments are an example of fractional rejuvenation- meaning that only a fraction of the tissue is treated at a time, leaving surrounding areas intact, creating tiny micro “wounds” to the skin to produce a healing response. The untreated tissue serves as a “holding bay” for stem cells and fibroblasts that work to regenerate the affected skin, resulting in fewer side effects and minimal downtime – you can return to your normal activities the following day, refreshed and glowing skin will be visible within 2 weeks post treatment.
