FACIAL MICRO-NEEDLING

NEW Dermapen – advanced fractional skin needling.

As we age the production of collagen and elastin naturally slows down which leads to wrinkles, sagging and sunken areas in the skin. Stimulating the skin to produce more collagen and elastin is called collagen induction therapy. Skin needling using Dermapen takes this effective collagen induction to the next level resulting in amazing results.

WHY IS IT INNOVATIVE?

The Dermapen’s advanced vertical skin needling technology uses multiple tiny needles to vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin’s surface it stimulates natural collagen and elastin production, whilst allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. Active ingredients from products are directly delivered to the deeper layers of the skin through these micro-channels, enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPEN?

  • Less discomfort and minimal skin damage.
  • Little downtime.
  • Disposable needles eliminate the risk of cross contamination.
  • Adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs.
  • Effectively treat hard to reach places (around the eyes, nose and lips).

IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Skin needling with the new Dermapen is undertaken with minimal discomfort and anesthetic cream can be used prior the procedure.

IS IT SAFE?

Dermapen is safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin micro-needling rollers due to its unique vertical micro-needling technology.

AFTERCARE AND RECOVERY

  • Immediately following the Dermapen therapy you will look like you have moderate sunburn, your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after a few hours and will normally recover on the same day, with only a slight redness the following day.
  • The skin is red and swollen for one to two day with a light grazing over the treated area appearing on day two.
  • Tepid water for cleansing the area is recommended for the first 48 hours following the procedure. It is recommended not to wear make-up for the first 12 hours after the procedure.

WILL I SEE IMMEDIATE RESULTS?

  • Following the Dermapen therapy your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, the process takes time as new collagen and elastin is formed and your blood supply is enhanced.
  • It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen, and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a gradual and long lasting enhancement.

SUGGESTED TREATMENT PLAN
