What is Dermapen microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as skin needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), has been used for decades by dermatologists for the medical treatment of scars, from burns, injuries and surgery through to minor acne scarring.

In recent years, microneedling has become more accessible for treating wrinkles, pigmentation and other skin issues, with minimal downtime post-treatment.

The microneedling process uses tiny and very fine needles to lightly puncture the skin’s superficial top layer by a fraction of millimetres, prompting the stimulation of collagen and elastin, which heals and plumps the skin.

How many Dermapen treatments do I need?

The amount of microneedling treatments you need generally depends on which skin area you want to treat, and what you want to achieve. Basic skin conditions such as pigmentation and fine lines may only need three or four treatments to see results.

If you want to treat extreme sun damage, deep wrinkles or scars, you may need six skin needling treatments for optimal results. The treatments usually are spaced between 2 and 8 weeks apart.

What sort of results can Dermapen achieve?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 3 to 6 treatments (spaced 2-8 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments as the skin rejuvenates, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike traditional derma rolling techniques, the Dermapen 4 is the most comfortable automated microneedling device available, thanks to its extremely small and fast moving needles. This process is minimally invasive, with no need for numbing cream. Most people find it very tolerable compared to other skin needling treatments.

It does, though will take more treatments. Scars are caused by the thick fibrosis tissue that replaces normal skin after injury. Skin needling treatments break up this uneven scar tissue and encourage the growth of new, smooth skin tissue.

Stretch marks (from stretching of the skin caused by pregnancy, weight gain or growth spurts) create tears to the connective tissue of the skin. Microneedling on stretch marks helps to promote regeneration of the skin, which restores the contours of your skin’s surface.

Straight after a Dermapen treatment, you may notice your skin is plump and glowing – but also a little pink (similar to windburn or sunburn). This will disappear after a day or two.

Your clinician will apply a protective cooling lotion directly after the treatments, which will reduce the redness as well as providing a bit of coverage and sun protection. Your skin may also feel a little dry a few days afterwards, after which it will become smooth and radiant within a week.

For the first 24 hours post-treatment, it’s important to avoid sun exposure and to minimise the use of active skin products. You won’t need to cleanse or moisturise your skin for the next 12 hours or so, as you’ll have all the products with moisturising ingredients applied already.

You’ll want to avoid makeup for a day or so too, so it’s best you don’t do it before a big event. A little mineral foundation can be applied the next day if you wish.
