This therapy is an FDA - approved medical device designed to treat aging (wrinkles and sagging skin), scarring (acne and surgical scarring), and hyper pigmentation.

What is a Dermapen?
A pen like, spring action mechanical device, delivering micro needles into the epidermis and dermis – the layers of the skin – the Derma pen creates micro injuries that force the skin to react and promote collagen regrowth and cell repair.
What is a dermapen treatment?
The Dermapen treatment is combined with a cleanse, tone, steam, vacuum and Dermapen application. It creates micro punctures in the skins surface to produce scar-less healing for healthy cell growth.
What can the Dermapen be used for?
Dermapen allows the esthetician to quickly treat specific skin areas – large or small – to achieve a number of goals:
Dermapen uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin. This enhances rejuvenation results and is far safer for the client because there is much less epidermal damage. The automatic vibrating function of Dermapen that can increase the effectiveness of penetrating treatment products. Dermapen can be as effective as Fraxel, IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels…without the negative side effects and downtime.
What are the side effects?
As the Dermapen does not involve heat or thermal energy, the skin heals quickly post treatment allowing you to face the world with confidence in no downtime.
How long does the treatment take?
As we allow timing for your complimentary skin analysis, cleansing, steam, vacuum, numbing cream application, the Dermapen treatment and correcting, calming mask…timing can take around 90 minutes.
Does it hurt?
Typically, we apply a numbing cream for 20 minutes pre-treatment. Once numbing cream has been applied, you may feel a slight vibration on the skins surface but nothing more.
What do you expect immediately after the treatment?
Microneedling and skin healing results are very individual. It’s impossible to give a definite time frame for your results. Immediately following a microneedling treatment your skin will be red and a little sore after treatment, such as it would be in the case of sever sunburn. The redness begins to subside usually after a few (2-4) hours. You may feel a little sore for a short while after cleansing and applying products for the first 24 hours. You can cover the reddened area with makeup once the soreness ceases after treatment.
How many treatments do you need?
After microneedling, you will notice changes in your skin in the first days and weeks after the treatment as the skin renews itself and collagen regrows. Skin renewal triggered by Dermapen usually takes about 28 days to occur, in this time you will start seeing improvement in the appearance of your skin. Visible skin Improvement can continue for up to twelve months following a course of 6-8 treatments depending on a person’s individual age and issues. Skin will appear firmer, more redefined, smoother and more rejuvenated, and the luminosity of the complexion will improve.
What do I need to do after Microneedling treatment?
Use a minimum of SPF30 sunscreen for at least first 4 weeks after every treatment. Using sunscreen at all times during daytime hours to protect skin from harmful UV rays, free radical and pollution based damage. Sunscreen is not just a beauty product, but it is a necessarily for healthy skin. Using sunscreen every day helps to keep your skin youthful and prevent aging.
