Home Dermatology Aesthetic Services Microneedling Dermapen



Microneedling Dermapen is a revolutionary skin treatment that has significant effect in improving your overall skin tone and quality through  accelerating the production of natural Collagen and promoting scar-less healing. The most important aspect that helps dermapen microneedling stand out from other similar treatments in the world of dermatology is being flexible to reach various difficult-to-get-around areas of the face such as the crevices around the nose, lips, and eyes. During the treatment your old scar tissues are broken down and new skin cells are stimulated for proliferation. This results in the creation of collagen and elastin in your tissue layer which are responsible for providing a smooth, supple skin appearance. Besides, it improves blood supply which contributes to the overall glow and health of your skin.

What to expect during the treatment?

Dermapen is a mechanical procedure, which makes use of a microneedling pen containing 12 ultra-fine sterile needles. The needles are simply injected into the skin -after being cleaned with alcohol- leading to the formation of small punctures and surface bleeding. These punctures encourage the body’s innate ability to repair itself and stimulate the collagen formation process of the skin allowing nutrients to be absorbed into the deep layers of the skin. The pain experienced is of a very low level because the dermapen offers adjustable depth so the treatment isn’t too deep in sensitive areas, needles just prick the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the inner layer of skin) along with being fitted with surgical grade disposable needles for your safety. In case you have a very low threshold of bearing pain, you can make use of numbing cream

How do you prepare?

Like other skin rejuvenation treatments, it is advisable not to take any anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin, or Advil for at least 3 days prior to your microneedling session. These will interfere with the natural inflammatory process that is critical for your skin rejuvenation. avoiding IPL/Laser procedures, unprotected sun exposure, or sunburn for at least 2 weeks prior to your treatment is indispensable. No waxing or depilatory creams to the area being treated for 5-7 days prior.  To avoid skin irritations, we recommend not to shave the day of the procedure. If there’s dense hair present in the treatment area, shave the day before you arrive for your appointment. Lastly If you’re prone to cold sores you are advised to take an antiviral agent for 2 days prior to and the day of the treatment.

How long does a Dermapen Microneedling treatment take?

The overall microneedling procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform

Post treatment instructions:

Dermapen microneedling has minimalistic post-treatment requirements. Some patients may experience minor redness, flaking, or itching, but this is pretty natural and should disappear within a few days. We advise you not to apply make-up for the first 24 hours after the treatment and use only oil-free make-up for a couple of days after the 24-hours window. We also recommend you avoid intense cardio exercises, steam, and sauna sessions 48 hours before and after the treatment. Avoid sun tanning and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks. After 24 hours, always use sunblock (30 SPF or higher) and wear a hat if you’re outside.

How many treatments are required?

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage, however most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.

One of the major strengths of Dermapen Microneedling therapy is that you can see a positive change in your skin’s overall condition after just one session as follows
