When you cut yourself, your body knows what’s required to heal the wound. It seems effortless as cellular activities within the skin unfold to heal the injury. Within days, most minor cuts vanish without a trace, leaving our skin flawless and unscathed.

It seems almost miraculous, and it is.

Microneedling taps into this phenomenon by harnessing the power of our body’s natural healing process by creating precise and controlled wounds on the skin’s surface, which then activates the cells responsible for skin rejuvenation and healing.

In this article, we’ll delve into the fascinating world of DERMAPEN SKIN NEEDLING, exploring how it stimulates collagen and elastin production, improves blood circulation, and speeds up cell turnover. Through these remarkable mechanisms, micro-needling offers a pathway to skin renewal and regeneration.

What is microneedling or skin needling?

Microneedling or skin needling is a clinical treatment where a roller or pen-like device with multiple needles is either rolled or passed over the skin to create micro punctures within the skin. These micro punctures activate cellular processes which assist in resolving common skin conditions from fine lines and wrinkles to brown patches of pigment and the minimisation of scar tissue.

Who is microneedling recommended for?

Microneedling is a popular clinical treatment solution to effectively treat a variety of common skin conditions, such as:

Regardless of your age or skin type, you can opt for a skin needling skin treatment to resolve the skin conditions that concern you.

Enter Dermapen Skin Needling.

At Select Skin, choosing the right device to treat your skin is important to us. We’ve done our research, and we’re confident the Dermapen skin needling pen is the most advanced needling device on the market today. With its precise and controlled needling, it is both safe and effective, and we’re confident you’ll be delighted with the results.

How does Dermapen Skin Needling work?

Oscillating vertical needles within the pen are passed over the skin at 1,920 puncture channels per second at a depth of 3mm to create micro-wounds and, just like any wound, stimulate the body’s natural healing response.

Some of the biological activities that micro needling promotes:

Preparing for your Dermapen Skin Needling treatment.

We always start with a skin consultation to ensure the best possible results, allowing us to determine the ideal number of micro-needling treatments for your skin condition and provide you with essential homecare advice before and after the procedure.

What happens during the Dermapen Skin Needling Treatment?

Once your skin has been prepared at home with active skincare for at least two weeks before your treatment, we’re ready to book your appointment.  

On the day of your treatment, we’ll apply a mild anaesthetic cream to numb the stinging sensation caused by the micro-needles.

The applied anaesthetic cream usually takes 40 minutes to numb the treatment area. We will then commence the procedure, which generally takes up to 15 minutes.

As the device is passed over the skin, the precision needles puncture the skin creating micro-wounds. The device is passed over the skin several times to deliver the desired number and depth of micro wounds.

Once the procedure is complete, we’ll apply recommended serums and creams and sun protection and provide you with advice on your post-treatment aftercare.

Is Dermapen Skin Needling painful?

You might be wondering if the procedure hurts. First up, our highly trained team make sure you’re feeling comfortable before they commence the procedure.

If you’ve opted for the anaesthetic numbing cream, you can expect minor tingling as the needles puncture the skin; however, as the micro-needles pass into the skin at such high speed, most clients find the whole procedure quite comfortable.

How many sessions are required?

While we expect results after a single treatment, you will experience optimal results after several sessions. How many will depend on the skin condition we are treating.

During your skin consultation, we will guide you on the number of procedures needed and the recommended time to wait between sessions.

Our Dermapen micro-needling treatment is customised to address your specific skincare concerns to deliver exceptional outcomes.

Most skin conditions require 4 – 6 sessions four weeks apart.

What are the results, and how long do they last?

The results you can expect from micro-needling treatment:

It’s important to note that your results will vary depending on factors such as your skin condition, the depth of treatment, the number of sessions and your commitment to a consistent skincare routine based on the advice we provide during your initial skin consultation.

What, if any, are the side effects?

All medical treatments come with side effects. During your consultation, we’ll go through any possible side effects, and during the procedure, we take every precaution to minimise any minor side effects.

Rest assured; the Dermapen micro-needling treatment is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime. You may experience some redness, mild swelling, and sensitivity immediately after the treatment, but these effects usually subside within a few days.

If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
