Dermapen

TM

Dermapen™ is a minimally invasive skin needling treatment that restores the skin, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, shrinking enlarged pores, minimizing acne scarring, promoting collagen tightening and improving sun-damaged and pigmentary skin disorder. 

 

It works by creating pulsed pin-point micro-injuries in the deeper layers of the skin. This then triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, stimulating new collagen and elastin formation.  

 

Dermapen™ is used to treat the face, neck and décolletage. 

 

DOWNTIME: 5-7 days

TREATMENT TIME: 30 MINUTES (+ 30 MINUTES NUMBING CREAM PREP)
