How does dermapen micro-needling work?

As the micro Dermapen needles penetrate your skin, they cause microscopic depressions. A topical anaesthetic will be administered prior to treatment, usually 30 minutes before, to ensure the treatment is painless. A numbing cream may also be used if a patient has particularly sensitive skin. This means that you will hardly feel any pain as the needles puncture through the skin’s surface. In the process, the production of amino acids that repair your skin is stimulated and released.

  • Reduce the appearance of a scar: After the skin heals a wound and forms a scar, the body acts as though the area has been returned to normal. Dermapen micro-needling can puncture the scar tissue and stimulate the skin to replace the damaged skin with new, unscarred skin.
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks: Like scarring, the body does not treat stretch marks as something that needs to be healed. Dermapen micro-needling over stretch marks can initiate healing and promote the growth of new skin.
  • Minimise fine lines and wrinkles: The elastin and collagen induction, caused by wounding the skin with a dermapen causes skin to tighten and thicken, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermapen micro-needling can, therefore, be considered an anti-aging treatment.

DermaPen also known as Micro needling is a motorised and more precise version to the traditional Derma Roller, the Dermapen works by piercing tiny needles into the treated skin area which results in collagen boost by renewing the skin cells through the body’s natural healing process. As the skin heals it increases skin collagen and elastin by plumping the area and reducing scars and pigmentation and leaving your skin with a smooth and healthy texture.
