Skin Needling

STARTING AT $310.00 - $399.00 PER TREATMENT 
CONSULTATION IS REQUIRED BEFORE BOOKING YOUR TREATMENT

Skin needling is a non-invasive clinical treatment that uses microscopic needles to penetrate the skin within the epidermis and dermis. These channels cause keratinocytes, fibroblasts and melanocytes that produce numerous growth factors to improve and normalise various skin functions. Skin needling is also known as (C.I.T) Collagen Induction therapy which allow the body to regrow and repair the skin from the micro damage through the wound healing response. This helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Skin needling can visibly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scar tissue, pigmentation, rosacea, enlarged pores and problematic skin.

 

What are Dermapen Treatments?
Dermapen 4 is the breakthrough of the decade utilising the most advanced needle cartridge innovation to vertically pierce the skin. Dermapen 4 glides over the skin creating millions of fine fractional channels up to 104% faster than other micro needling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deeper into the skin. In turn our body's natural response triggers a natural process of repair. The result is an increased production of collagen and elastin, resurfacing, retexturising and overall skin renewal anywhere on the body, from hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, nose or larger areas of neck and décolleté, stomach and legs for stretch mark treatments.

 

Is the treatment painful?
Traditional dermal rolling techniques proved to be a bloody and painful treatment, requiring the application of topical anaesthetic cream (TLA) before treatments. A progression was seen with Dermapen 3 which caused less epidermal (skin) damage, and reduced levels of pain and discomfort for safer, more effective micrneedling treatments. Today with Dermapen 4 there is no comparison - this is the most comfortable, virtually pain-free microneedling treatment available. Dermapen 4 Treatments are so comfortable there is no need for any TLA. Just lay back and enjoy the stunning results. 

How should I prepare my skin for a Dermapen Treatment?
As the original, trusted leader of microneedling, Dermapen World has collaborated with leading research and development laboratories and clinical experts to create DP Dermaceuticals, the world's first meso-infusion skincare range exclusively designed for microneedling procedures. These active mess-glide combinations are protocols endorsed by thousands of practitioners around the globe for safe infusion into the skin during skin needling procedures.

For optimal results an appropriate homeware regime should be determined by your clinician to encourage the skin to prepare, strengthen and fortify (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). 

How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (general guide)

  • Rejuvenation – 3-6 Treatments

  • Acne Scarring – 4-6 Treatments

  • Stretch Marks – 4-8 Treatments

  • Pigmentation – 4-6 Treatments

 

How soon after filler/muscle relaxant injections can I have a Dermapen Treatment?
While there is no clinical evidence that Dermapen treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is important to let your clinician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planning one in the near future. Your clinician will be able to advise you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately.

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 3 to 6 treatments (spaced 2-8 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a nurse of treatments, especially when combines with the recommended post-treatment care.

Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Mom people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of DP Dermaceuticals Cover Recover will seal and heal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
