Dermapen Skin Needling
Dermapen Skin Needling, also known as Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is a remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical treatment that triggers the skin to stimulate collagen production and freshen and restore healthier skin tissue.
It is a safe treatment where we use a segmented delivery of micro-needles, creating micro-injuries to the outer surface and inner layers of skin. As a result, the micro-injuries along with the application of active skincare correctives encourage the body’s innate ability to repair itself to its best potential.
The benefits are to correct the overall health and appearance of the skin across ALL concerns at the same time. It will assist initially with the skin’s luminosity, smoothness, hydration and brightening. In the long term, it will strengthen & stimulate the deeper layers creating volumisvolumizinging collagen and elasticity, this is important, by dramatically increasing the deeper collagen it will result in further restorative results on the surface such as fine lines and wrinkles, the reduction of redness, smooth the skin’s texture and blur the appearance of pores, acne, pigmentation and other blemishes. With frequent return visits, it will additionally aid in the long-lasting healthy and healing abilities and revise the skin back to a more youthful state.
- Ageing skin – Helps to restore skin firmness, tightness and texture, plumping fine lines and wrinkles, improving eye area, lip area and overall softness and glow.
- Acne and Scars – Helps to reduce the appearance of all scars, including those by acne, surgery, injury and chicken pox marks. Kills leading causes of bacterial inundation and induces the repair of the skin’s oil gland system so it can normalise and oil flow feels balanced.
- Pigmentation – Lightens pigmentation marks and encourages the repair and resistance against further pigmentation issues.
We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments taken 2-6 weeks apart depending on the skin concern.

24-48 hours post-treatment your skin will likely feel a little tight, can feel warm and appear slightly flushed. During this period do not apply make-up unless it is mineral based. It is important you only use the aftercare products as instructed. It may feel dehydrated and thirsty for up to a week, this is normal. Keep applying your aftercare products liberally. Treat the skin gently, do not use wash cloths or sponges. If your treatment included the Uber peel and your skin is peeling, let it do this naturally, do not pick at skin. Limit time outdoors to minimise sun exposure, during this peeling stage. SPF must be liberally applied and worn every day, even when cloudy. If in direct sunlight, SPF should be reapplied every 2 hours.
