This treatment is the latest development in medical skin needling. The automatic vibrating function of the needling heads increases dermal needling speed, effectiveness & absorption of products, while reducing discomfort. Micro-needling prompts the natural release of the skin’s collagen and elastin for amazing anti-aging benefits, all without surgery.
The Dermapen™ is used to carry out this procedure, which has proven to be faster and more effective than the Dermaroller and its results are comparable to ablative treatments such as Fraxel, Laser Resurfacing and Chemical peels and recovery and down time can be significantly less. As the mico-needels stamp over your skin it creates micro-point punctures in the skin, the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process. You encourage your skin to continue healing through this micro-needling process.
Your skin normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are repaired, but with The Dermapen™ auto-stamp micro-needling treatments, the skin is tricked into repairing itself.
The results from micro-needling skin remodeling can go on for months after each micro-needling treatment. Results can be seen within a week and up to 8 weeks. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with a little micro-needling stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast
How many treatments are needed?
Our specialist surgeon can consult you on a prescribed treatment. Different skin conditions need specific treatment regimens. As well as being affected by the age of each patient. 2-3 aggressive micro-needling treatments will provide a noticeable difference, however 5-6 treatments will show the most dramatic results. It is important to work with our surgeon on what treatment specifics to observe. Once the treatment has the desired effect, it is important to maintain collagen stimulation by returning to our clinic, and performing a new micro-needling treatment every 12-24 weeks.
Is this treatment painful ?
Not at all, prior to your treatment we will remove make up and deeply cleanse your skin using an antiseptic and then we apply an anaesthetic cream until your skin is numb. This makes the process pain free. You will feel the Dermapen™ on your skin, so you will feel a sensation but no pain. The Dermapen™ device is more comfortable than traditional micro-needling because the needles are smaller. The advantage of Dermapen™ over conventional skin needling rollers is that it can treat difficult areas such as around the eyes and upper lip which are often difficult to treat effectively with conventional rollers. The treatment is virtually painless, with little or no down time depending on the level of treatment and the area being treated. It can be made with varied intensity and is adjusted individually to the needs of the client. The treatment is suitable for all ages and is extremely effective.
How quickly are results visible?
Visible results of skin rejuvenation are generally seen within a week and up to 6-8 weeks following the procedure and improve further over time. A course of micro-needling sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimum results, however skin improvement is generally noticeable after just one treatment.
