Dermapen Skin Needling
DERMAPEN SKIN NEEDLING
Dermapen Skin Needling is a form of skin rejuvenation used to target skin concerns including:
- Loss of firmness (Collagen Induction Therapy)
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne/ problematic skin
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
As the Dermapen is gently guided over the skin, tiny microscopic puncture channels are created stimulating an inflammatory response or wound healing response. Natural Growth Factors are released to stimulate reformation and deposition of fresh collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments but without the downtime. The puncture channels increase product delivery to the cells with deep penetration of the needles, up to 2.5mm.
At Just Breathe Urban Skin Bar we use the most innovative product on the market, the Dermapen 3. Dermapen 3 uses Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needle (AOVN) technology for increased patient comfort, reduced epidermal damage and has very little downtime meaning you can return to your normal routine straight after the treatment is complete.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the skin concern and the severity of it, anywhere between 4- 8 treatments will be needed. An accurate diagnosis and treatment plan will be established during the initial consultation.
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 to 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 post-treatment care.
What areas can be treated?
Area that can be treated include face, neck, decolletage, hands, tummy and stretch marks.
How should I prepare my skin for a Dermapen treatment?
For optimal results, an appropriate regime of skin care will be determined by your clinician, to encourage the skin to strengthen (especially for thin or delicate skin ares). Continue to use your prescribed skin care recommended by your clinician after the treatments for a period of 6 weeks.
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 rendure 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.
A complimentary consultation is always necessary before commencing any treatment. A full analysis of the skin will be performed with a personalised skin prescription.
