Dermapen™ Micro-needling

Micro-needling (also referred to as skin-needling, dermal roller or collagen induction) is a proven rejuvenation technique and is now available in our luxurious clinic in Garforth, Leeds.

Dermapen™ is a revolutionary device that systematically creates tiny micro-channels in the skin to encourage the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. Hailed as “the best recent innovation in skin rejuvenation,” Dermapen™ is an effective way to reverse skin damage and creates a fresher, younger and healthier looking skin. 

What is Dermapen™?

Dermapen™ is a medically engineered device that utilises 12 surgical grade Microneedles to deliver effective skin needling. Dermapen's™ patented operation incorporates vertical oscillation technology to trigger the skins natural healing response.

How does dermapen work?

Dermapen™ stimulates the skins healing response encouraging the production of precious growth factors, collagen and elastin for naturally rejuvenated, revitalised and regenerated skin.

What makes Dermapen™ unique?

Only Dermapen™ uses a specialised spring-loaded cartridge that is automated by a spring loaded cartridge that is automated by an oscillating system. This delivers fast, fractional and virtually painless treatment that is non ablative. Dermapen's™ patented technology delivers vertical channels into the skin minimising damage, downtime and discomfort, whilst its adjustable speed and depth customises each procedure for targeted results.

Does a Dermapen ™ treatment hurt?
There are two types of Dermapen™ treatments. The first type calls for the use of an aesthetic cream to numb the area, to allow for a deeper, more aggressive Dermapen™ treatment. The second type involves using Dermapen™ at a shallower depth, eliminating the need to pre-treat the skin with an aesthetic cream. Depending on the patient’s skin and the type of treatment provided, the skin may appear red and irritated for a few days. Specially formulated creams can be used before and after a Dermapen™ treatment to minimise this effect.

How quickly are results visible?
Visibly rejuvenated skin can generally be seen after just 6-8 days following a procedure, with results further improving over time. A course of Dermapen™ sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however, improvement is usually noticeable after just one treatment.

Is Dermapen™ safe?
Injections are not a part of a Dermapen™ treatment, so allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is virtually no downtime and the healing process is quick. Aftercare is also very simple and can be fully administered at home.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling?
Side effects experienced with Dermapen™ will usually subside within 48 hours. They include erythema, stinging, itching and tightness of the skin.

My face has a few slightly raised red and itchy lesions today, is that normal and something the client may experience?
Yes absolutely normal. Some people just get red and dry skin, others get quite flaky dry and red skin, others tend to break out in lots of lumps like pimples but they go away in 3 days. So yes, it is normal and is just the body purging itself of toxins.

What can be expected after Dermapen ™ treatment?

Day 1:

Erythema and redness, severity of which will depend upon the aggressiveness of the performed treatment.

Day 2:

Red or pink hue similar to moderate sunburn may persist. There may be some noticeable swelling on the second day.

Day 3:

Skin may still retain a pink hue, or return to normal colour. Swelling subsides.

How many Dermapen™ treatments will I require?

Generalised rejuvenation can be achieved in as little as 3 treatemtns. Conditions such as scarring and stretch marks may require minimum 5 sessions. Depending on the condition being targeted, treatments are performed every 4-8 weeks.
