Dermapen® Micro Needling
One technology that has been proven to deliver amazing results is the Dermapen Micro Skin Needling. The treatment is a form of collagen induction therapy where a series of needles penetrate the skin causing thousands of micro injuries at a vertical angle using a specialist medical device, for both faster and more precise needle penetration. The procedure leads to increased collagen production, which effectively repairs scars, reduces discolouration and renews tired looking skin. The Dermapen has revolutionised micro skin needling, making it easier, safer and less painful to get maximum results comparing with tradition Derma Roller skin needling. The results are more extraordinary, longer lasting and treatment time is faster, making this a top choice for anyone looking to achieve younger, smoother skin.

FAQ on Dermapen® Micro Needling
1Can you receive the treatment if pregnant?
Skin needling is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women due to a number of minor reasons. The needles produce micro-injuries which trigger the natural wound healing response. This wound healing and production of new collagen requires vitamins and nutrients which would otherwise be needed for the baby so is suggested to not be used during pregnancy. Another minor reason is simply increasing the chances of infection which is never a good idea when pregnant.
2Can the Treatment be done on Darker Skin?
Skin needling can be safely performed on all skin colours and types. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation as the melanocytes remain intact, like the epidermis, during skin needling.
3Is the Treatment safe?
Skin needling does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (circa 24hrs), rapid healing and requires simple after-care.
4What are the contraindications of skin needling treatments?
Contraindications and precautions include; keloid or raised scarring; history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis; history of Herpes Simplex infections; history of diabetes; presence of raised moles, warts or any raised lesions on targeted area. Absolute contraindications include; scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; Rosacea and blood clotting problems; active bacterial or fungal infection; immuno-suppression; scars less than 6 months old; and facial fillers in the past 6 months.
