About The Treatment

Dermapen4 is the world’s leading Micro-Needling device which allows the creation of thousands of micro wounds at a specific depth in the skin triggering the production of natural collagen and elastin.  

There are no harsh side effects or down time and the results are healthier skin which looks brighter, tighter, more even toned with refined pores and reduced wrinkles.

The microchannels created by the needles allow for as much as an 80% increase in skin penetration when the treatment is combined with active ingredients as it allows the product to penetrate deeply into the dermal layers so it can be absorbed directly by the underlying cells.  This supercharges the results of any product.

When combined with the use of platelet rich plasma (prp), the results of the Dermapen4 treatment are almost unbelievable.

Micro-Needling can help patients achieve incredible results with the reduction of scarring, pore minimisation, pigmentation lightening, and overall skin appearance.

What To Expect

The Procedure

Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to dull sensation and ensure maximum comfort. The applicator head contains a number of very tiny needles which are programmed to a specific depth  and are automatically stamped onto the skin creating thousands of micro wounds. This stimulates the production of elastin and collagen which will prompt the skin to regenerate. If the treatment is being combined with any products or Platelet Rich Plasma then this will be applied before the needling and immediately after.

Post Treatment

Following the procedure you can expect some redness and slight swelling around the treatment area. You will need to avoid using make up or any strong skin products for at least 48 hours. You should avoid any exposure to sunlight and also touching your face. Your skin therapist will recommend a range of gentle skin care products that will assist with the recovery and promotion of healthy regeneration. Activities that result in sweating should be avoided immediately after. Plenty of water should be consumed to assist with hydration of the skin and the healing process.
