What does skin needling actually do?


What happens in a Dermapen treatment?

Dermapen treatments involve the introduction of a series of fine, sharp needles into the skin, following the administration of a topical local anaesthetic (designed to help reduce discomfort).

The “damage” the needles cause to the dermis encourages the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which prompts new skin cells to repair themselves. In addition,active collagen boosting and repairing serums are applied during the Dermapen treatment to enhance the effects.

Skin can look a little red and mildly inflamed post-treatment, and can also bleed a little, though the effects are fairly short term with the majority of the visible signs of treatment fading within 24 to 72 hours.

Dermapen treatment can be used for:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin laxity
  • Scarring
  • Enlarged pores
  • Pigmentation

It can take four to eight weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration can be seen and that, for the most dramatic results, a series of up to six treatments (each spaced four to six weeks apart) is often required.
