Using a DermaRoller– a hand held single-use medical instrument studded with very fine needles. This produces thousands of micro needle columns in the skin – of around 0.1mm wide that rapidly close up, causing the skin to jump-start its natural healing process.
Treatment would typically comprise of 3 sessions with 6 – 8 weeks between each.

Immediately after treatment, skin will appear flushed, feel warm and tighter than usual, this typically subsides after a couple of hours with only slight redness the next day. Post procedure, skincare will be prescribed to help soothe, calm and protect the skin. After 3 days clients can return to their regular skin care routine.

DermaPen is a skin microneedling treatment that creates micro-injuries to the inner and outer layer of the skin, which stimulates new collagen production. It promotes the skin’s natural self-rejuvenating process to improve the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, stretchmarks, and skin pigmentation.
Yes, this treatment can be safely performed on all skin types with no risk of hyperpigmentation. The needle only penetrates through the epidermis and does not remove it thus the skin’s natural protective barrier remains intact.
You may feel slight discomfort during this microneedling treatment but numbing cream can be applied to the skin beforehand. Some pinpoint bleeding may occur however, you will not experience ongoing bleeding after the treatment. You can expect redness for 12-48 hours after the procedure.
The DermaPen treatment is not suitable for those who are pregnant or lactating. It is also advised against those with skin concerns such as Rosacea, Psoriasis or Eczema or those who have recently had facial fillers.
The skin will look inflamed and sensitised for several hours after the treatment, thus we advise that you have a microneedling treatment at the end of a working day or on a day off from work/events that are in the days following your treatment.
