Information About Collagen Induction Therapy

(Micro Needling)

WHAT IS DERMAPEN® 4?

Dermapen® 4 is the gold standard of micro needling - Collagen Induction Therapy.  Utilising the most advanced needle cartridge innovation to vertically pierce the skin creating millions of micro channels up to 104% faster than other micro-needling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more nutrients deeper into the skin. This action then triggers our body's natural healing response.

The result is an increased production of collagen and elastin, resurfacing (lines and wrinkles), retexturizing and overall skin renewal anywhere on the body. Unlike some other treatments it can be used safely in areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, nose.  Also suitable for larger areas of neck and decolletage, stomach and legs for stretch mark treatments. 

 

HOW WILL IT IMPROVE MY SKIN?

Dermapen® 4 is a cutting-edge skin treatment designed to improve the look of wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation, rosacea, acne and stretch marks for the face and body by working within the body creating a natural wound-healing response . 

 

As we get older we start to show signs of ageing, especially in our faces with the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Pollution and lifestyle habits also have an effect on our skin. Our skin’s renewal process slows down as we age, so Dermapen® 4 treatments are the safe, natural alternative to improve the look and health of your skin. Dermapen® 4 treatments can produce amazing results.

IS IT SUITABLE FOR ALL?

Dermapen® 4  treats a variety of skin concerns so it is suitable for all ages, skin type and ethnicities.

 

WHAT CONCERNS DOES DERMAPEN® 4 TREAT?

Anti Aging - Dermapen® 4 treatments are firstly designed to create a safe healing response within the body. This leads to kick start natural collagen and elastin production from within the skin, without harsh side effects and downtime. Consequently, this results in repairing the surface layers to result in healthier skin, looking brighter, tighter, more even toned, refined pores and reduced wrinkles.

Acne - Acne can affect all skin types and all ages, and may be caused by a combination of genetics, hormone changes, health, stress and or environmental factors. Hormones can stimulate excess sebum (or oil) production, excess oil, dry skin and debris combined can become trapped in the pore. If the pore becomes blocked the acne bacteria can cause inflammation and can make the skin more susceptible to other bacteria. Dermapen® 4 micro- needling regenerates the affected area by stimulating the production and distribution of collagen. You will see an overall improvement in the appearance of problematic skin breakouts, black/whiteheads, acne reduced, and scarring minimised.

Scarring - Dermapen® 4 is the only micro-needling device with a dedicated scar setting and protocols for revision of deep, atrophic scars; including surgical, burn contracture, striae and post-acne scars.

Pigmentation - Unlike some Laser treatments, Dermapen® 4 eliminates the risk of heat injury and hypopigmentation risks, whilst promoting optimised cell function. Therefore, this makes it a suitable procedure for any skin type and ethnicities affected by melasma (pigmentation) and with a predisposition to hyperpigmentation. Dermapen® 4 treatments have also been found to be effective on hypopigmentation vitiligo treatments, working to reverse the production of hyperpigmentation and melasma.

Dermapen® 4 treatments can be effective for a multitude of conditions including rosacea and telangiectasia.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?

Micro needling is a very quick procedure which takes around 10-15 minutes.  The skin is cleansed and after the needling an ultra-soothing 3D hydration mask is applied followed with SPF. 

 

IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Unlike traditional dermal rolling techniques, Dermapen® 4 is the most comfortable micro-needling treatment available, thanks to advanced technology and design.  With Dermapen® 4 there is no need for any topical anaesthetic.

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED AND HOW OFTEN?

It depends on the type of treatment but generally between 3-6 treatments. The time between treatments will also depend on what we are treating and will be between 2-8 weeks apart.  A plan will be made in consultation to ensure you're getting the best possible results.

HOW LONG SHOULD IT TAKE BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results continue to improve over the next 6 - 12 months after a course of treatments.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER TREATMENTS?

Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12- 48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
