Dermapen 3 utilises multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin with patent pending AOVN (Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needle) Technology. Dermapen 3 glides over the skin creating millions of fine channels. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, encouraging delivery of these nutrients deeper into the skin to feed cells in the dermis and basal layer of the epidermis.
Dermapen 3 systematically creates micro-punctures in the skin and the body naturally responds by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to that achieved by fractional laser treatments but without the side effects and downtime. Practitioners find Dermapen Treatments to be more effective and more beneficial than most micro-dermabrasion and chemical peels.
Dermapen can be used to treat the appearance of :
- Ageing skin
- Skin tightening and rejuvenation
- Stretch marks
and much more
Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General Guide)
Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments 4-6 weeks apart
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 4-6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended skin-care.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimal needle depths, Dermapen Treatments are relatively painless. Treatments using depths over 0.5mm may require a topical anaesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments virtually pain-free.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
