Dermapen 4 is the breakthrough of the decade utilising the most advanced needle cartridge innovation to vertically pierce the skin. Dermapen 4 glides over the skin creating millions of fine fractional channels up to 104% faster than other microneedling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deeper into the skin. In turn our body’s natural response triggers a natural process of repair.  The results is an increased production of collagen and elastin, resurfacing, retexturizing and overall skin renewal anywhere on the body, from hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, nose or larger areas of neck and decollete, stomach and legs for stretch mark treatments.

The first step is to book in a consultation, where the Skin Therapist will review your current skin condition and  skincare regime to assess its readiness for a treatment.  For optimal results , an appropriate homecare regime should be determined to encourage the skin to prepare, strengthen and fortify ( especially for thin or delicate skin areas).

After a thorough consultation I will advise on a treatment plan that addresses your areas of concern and matches your budget.

Unlike traditional dermal rolling techniques, the Dermapen 4 is the most comfortable and virtually pain free micro-needling treatment available, thanks to advanced technology and design. This progression started with the Dermapen 3, which resulted in reduced levels of pain and discomfort than its predecessor –  as well as safer, more effective microneedling treatments.  Today, with the Dermapen 4, there is no need for any topical anaesthetic cream,  just lay back and enjoy the stunning results.

Generally no,  but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment.  Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
