Dermapen is a solution for various skin conditions that clients might seek treatment for. These include wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, scars and stretch marks. It can also stimulate wound healing, as well as tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. This means we can offer a broader range of treatments for you.
What can I expect during the Dermapen procedure?
Does the treatment hurt?
There are two types of Dermapen treatments. The first type calls for the use of an anesthetic cream to numb the area, to allow for a deeper, more aggressive Dermapen treatment. The second type involves using Dermapen at a shallower depth, eliminating the need to pre-treat the skin with an anesthetic cream. Depending on the patient’s skin and the type of treatment provided, the skin may appear red and irritated for a few days. Specially formulated creams can be used before and after a Dermapen treatment to minimize this effect.
How quickly are results visible?
Visibly rejuvenated skin can generally be seen after just 6-8 days following a procedure, with results further improving over time. A course of Dermapen sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however, improvement is usually noticeable after just one treatment.
Is Micro-Needling safe?
Injections are not a part of a Dermapen treatment, so allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is virtually no downtime and the healing process is quick. Aftercare is also very simple and can be fully administered at home.
Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling? Side effects experienced with Dermapen will usually subside within 48 hours. They include erythema (redness of the skin), stinging, itching and tightness of the skin.
