Dermapen® 4

The needle and the damage undone.

Sun, age and hard-living all take their toll on the skin’s luminosity -- that bright healthy glow of youthful skin that people spend so much time and money trying to imitate with makeup.
One of the key aims of cosmetic medicine is to stimulate the body’s own collagen production, and one of the great ways to do this is by using a specialised instrument called a Dermapen®.
The Dermapen® contains very fine medical needles that create virtually painless micro-traumas on the skin’s surface layer. This results in just enough damage to induce collagen production, which tightens skin and restores elasticity.
In as few as three treatments, skin becomes smoother, healthier and more uniform.

A Dermapen® dermal needling treatment can help with the following:

  • Stimulates collagen formation
  • Tightens skin, and restores elasticity
  • Softens fine lines
  • Reduces the appearance of scarring
  • Reduces pigmentation and sun damage
  • Improves skin’s absorption of creams and gels
