Microneedling is a sterile medical skin needling system that creates microscopic channels deep within the dermis of the skin.
Microneedling & Dermapen
How the Procedure works?
The procedure stimulates the body to produce new collagen. Simultaneously, we can administer mesotherapy growth factors, vitamins, amino acid cocktails, as well as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to further stimulate fibroblasts for extra collagen production. This process is known as collagen induction therapy.
Microneedling can be used in individuals who have:
- Fine line wrinkles
- Lax and sun-damaged skin
- Stretch marks
- Post-burn scars
Dermapen Medical is an advanced automated skin needling device that is widely recognised as the Gold Standard in microneedling technology in the aesthetic market. Dermapen Medical uses unique vertical microneedling technology differently from traditional skin microneedling rollers. It is designed to treat visible signs of aging, stretch marks, all types of pigmentation, sun-damaged skin, hair loss, wrinkles, various types of scars, and many other skin concerns.
Microneedling & Dermapen
Targeting Scars, Pigmentations and Rough Skin
Dermapen Medical is an active ingredient delivery device. These active ingredients could be vitamins, minerals, non-crossed link hyaluronic acid, amino acids, peptides, growth factors, etc. Any active ingredient applied to the skin during a Dermapen procedure will actively penetrate into the skin in greater quantities, and then applied topically. This is essential for enhancing the rejuvenating properties of the skin.
How do I look after the procedure?
Although it is a microneedling procedure, the patient feels minimal discomfort as we use local anaesthetic. After the procedure, the skin has the appearance of moderate sunburn which improves over the next 24 to 48 hours. Breathable makeup can be worn immediately after the treatment, and patients can resume their daily activities.
Although microneedling is suitable for all skin types, it's not suitable if you:
- Have open wounds, cuts or abrasions
- Have had radiation treatment within the last year
- Have a current outbreak of herpes (cold sores) or any other infection or chronic skin condition in the area to be treated
- Have areas of the skin that are numb or lack sensation
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing
- Have used Roaccutane within the last three months
