Micro Needling (Using Dermapen 4)

Updated: Aug 7, 2023

Micro needling with Dermapen treatment helps to boost collagen production to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. It can help to diminish the appearance of scars and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Pigmentation, acne scarring, and stretchmarks can also be treated with dermapen 4.

One technology that has been proven to deliver amazing results is the Dermapen 4 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 discoloration and renews tired looking skin.

The Derma pen 4 has revolutionized 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.

Does Dermapen Micro Needling hurt?

You might think that having a bunch of tiny needles stamped into your skin would be painful, but surprisingly it is not. Before treatment you’ll have a topical anesthetic applied, which will eliminate any discomfort during the process. Everyone who has experienced treatment with the Dermapen has remarked on how pain free it really is, and some have even commented that it’s a little like a rather rough massage.

Is the treatment safe?

Yes, the treatment is completely safe. The micro needling treatment does not pierce the skins natural barrier, only penetrating the epidermis to stimulate collagen production. The epidermis heals rapidly, usually in a matter of hours, and the skin should be completely back to normal within 24 to 48 hours.

What is the healing process?

You will begin to see the results immediately after the treatment; however, the results will be improved in the weeks following.
