Dermapen 4

Your skin has a self-rejuvenating function with minimum downtime. It is capable of significantly reducing blemishes caused by acne, trauma, pigmentation and a range of other ailments. In our Wellington clinic, we use microneedling to activate a process of collagen induction. This therapy involves a Dermapen facial treatment that creates tiny punctures across the affected area.

As your skin responds and heals, it produces collagen which forms a new layer of fresh tissue, creating a more youthful appearance on the surface. By promoting healing it rejuvenates the skin and improves the appearance of scars, acne scarring, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmentation.

Some commonly asked questions are answered below. Click on a question to reveal more information.

Approximately 48 to 72 hours after the treatment you’ll have an increase in collagen production. However, it takes at least four weeks to see noticeable results.

The new collagen will last for several years, which is why microneedling treatment is considered a very long lasting treatment. Unlike the laser, you can repeat microneedling without building up scar tissue. However, when scars and stretch marks are treated the results generally are permanent or at least long lasting.

Many patients say that microneedling causes a little discomfort. Normally patients do not require topical anaesthetic, but if the procedure does prove uncomfortable this can easily be applied.

Superficial Dermapen™ treatments may be performed as often as every 4 weeks to manage and correct uneven tone without overstimulating or harming the skin. Unlike laser or IPL, Dermapen™ treatments may be performed on all skin colours and on all types of unwanted pigmentation.

It is normal for the skin to peel within a few days of microneedling treatment. It creates a large number of tiny punctures on your face, which your body responds to by initiating repair. A new layer of skin is produced and the old skin begins peeling off.
