Dermapen - Microneedling
The Dermapen or Microneedling consists of a device with multiple tiny micro needles. Which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. The Dermapen can visibly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne and trauma scars.
This procedure stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
The concept behind needling is the stimulation of new collagen production in your skin. The needle breaks the skin and causes micro-trauma and micro-inflammation without removing the top layer of skin. Your body responds by sending blood to the area for healing. As your skin repairs itself and heals underneath, new collagen builds up just below the surface. The wrinkles, lines, or depressed scars plump naturally from the bottom-up without the use of anything artificial. Repeated needling sessions gradually and continually build new collagen to fill-in the treated areas. Collagen is what your body produces to keep your skin young healthy.
The gentle stimulus provided by Microneedling is far more “skin friendly” and thus far more effective than many other more invasive and more expensive skin treatments. Micro-channels seal within hours after application: long enough for new collagen-structures to form within the lower layers of the skin and short enough to allow you to resume normal schedules quickly.
This appears to be the end of the story. But it isn’t.
Underneath the skin’s surface, much more is going on. In fact, the healing response which begins immediately upon the injury kick-starts a healing process that last for several months, and up to a year. This natural healing process is where all the magic happens.

After the treatment
After the treatment the area will be red and swollen. The effects may take a few days to disappear, although normally they resolve within a couple of days. At SkinMedico we advise our customers to use at least SPF 30 post procedure. This will enable you to continue with your normal daily activities.
At SkinMedico, we offer you a full medical assessment prior to your first treatment. We will advise you on an individualised plan of treatment to suit your needs. This process gives you a great opportunity to ask all the questions that you might have and discuss the treatment plan. Dermapen can be carried out alone or in combination with other treatments.
