Dermica Pen Advanced Skin NeedlingThe Dermica Pen Micro needling system is the newest type of dermal needling currently on the market. It is used to rejuvenate the skin and as part of an anti-ageing routine helps to stimulate new collagen and elastin, which helps us look younger for longer!
How does it work?The Dermapen is a hand held device about the size of a pen, it has a piece that is inserted into the top of the device, and this piece contains needles. These tiny needles penetrate the skin at different levels- depending on the depth of scar or type of condition you are treating. This micro injury causes new collagen and elastin to form and it helps with the breakdown of old collagen. This leads to smoother, more refined skin and a reduction in wrinkles due to the skin tightening effects of the treatment.
Does it hurt?Prior to your DermaPen treatment, we apply a layer of anaesthetic gel until your skin is numb; this makes the whole process pain free. You will feel the DermicaPen on your skin, so you will feel sensation, but not pain.
How long does the treatment take?When you arrive we remove any traces of make-up or oil from your skin, then we will apply the anaesthetic, this usually takes 20 mins on average to numb the skin. We remove the gel and we apply a product as a glide medium to the skin, the needling of the skin usually takes no more than 30 minutes, but this depends on the area you are having treated.
How many treatments will I need?Whilst you will see a positive change in your skin after just one treatment, we do however advise between 2-4 treatments, this is especially necessary if you are treating acne scarring or uneven skin tone or wrinkles.
