Our Dermapen 4 needling device provides deep collagen induction therapy to improve all types of acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles. The minimally invasive procedure aims to also tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin.
Micro-Needling is suitable for any individuals concerned with fine lines and anti-ageing, pore size, acne scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Your skin has a self-rejuvenating function that is capable of significantly reducing blemishes caused by acne, trauma, pigmentation and a range of other ailments. Micro-needling activates this process by causing tiny punctures across the treated area. As your skin heals, it produces collagen which forms a new layer of fresh tissue, creating a more youthful appearance on the surface and fighting antibodies beneath.
The skin will have a nice healthy glow instantly after your treatment however results in terms of correcting specific skin conditions will be seen after each treatment in a series of treatments. Collagen can take up to 3-6 months to form within the skin so best results will be a few months after your treatments.
Depending on your current skin condition, treatments may vary from 2-8 weeks and follow up treatments can be 8 weekly for a healthy skin maintenance routine.
The treatment is a little uncomfortable however it is a very quick process. All of our clients find the treatment quite bearable.
Immediately post treatment the skin will appear red and will feel sunburnt, the redness can last anywhere from 12-48hrs depending on the depth of treatment. Day 3-5 you can experience a tight, dry sensation with potential mild to moderate flaking. If your therapist upgrades your treatment with a UBER peel add on you will expect moderate flaking on days 3-5. Mild breakouts can also be experienced due to the stimulation of the treatment.
A consultation is mandatory prior to treatment to determine the skins functioning and your goals. Depending on the skin type, Micro-needling requires the skin to be prepped for a minimum of 2 weeks on a gentle cleanser, pigment inhibitor, hydrator and SPF. Post treatment requires the application of Dermapen Vitamin Rich Repair for 5 days following the treatment.
