Frequently Asked Questions

What does the treatment involve?

The Dermapen is a mechanical device that is used to stimulate collagen production and increase product penetration by creating micro channels in the skin. This action triggers a healing process, similar to fractional laser procedures, which stimulates your own cells to increase the production of collagen and elastin. Dermapen Skin Therapy rejuvenates the skin leaving it firmer, smoother and looking younger.

What areas can be treated?

It is typically used to treat the following conditions:

  • Aged Sagging Skin
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Smoker lines around lips
  • Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation
  • Reduction of Scars and Acne Scarring
  • Rejuvenation
  • Large Pores
  • Stretch Marks

How many sessions will I need and how far apart should I have them?

For most conditions, two or three treatments are usually required but for any scarring or skin tightening, three or five treatments are required with an interval of six weeks between treatments.

What results can I expect?

The treatment results in the formation of collagen and elastin with improved blood circulation to the skin as well. Following the treatment the skin looks red similar to sunburn. In general, microdermabrasion results in thicker, healthier, more youthful looking skin.  Over the course of a full set of treatments, the body will produce new layers of skin containing higher levels of elastin and collagen.  This, in turn, improves the complexion and gives the skin a more radiant, vibrant glow.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects experienced with Dermapen will usually subside within 48 hours. They include erythema, stinging, itching and tightness of the skin.

Downtime and Aftercare / post treatment advice?

Generally there is no downtime, 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.
