Dermapen 3™ utilises multiple needles to, vertically pierce the skin, with patent-pending AOVN™ (Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needle) technology. Dermapen 3™ glides over the skin creating millions of fine channels. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, encouraging transdermal delivery of these nutrients deeper into the skin, to feed cells in the dermis and basal layer of the epidermis.
Dermapen 3™ systematically creates micro-punctures in the skin and the body naturally responds by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. Dermapen™ Treatments have also been found to be more effective and beneficial than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
When compared to traditional dermal rollers, Dermapen 3™ causes less epidermal (skin) damage, reducing levels of pain and discomfort. As a result Dermapen 3™ is a safer, more comfortable, and more effective micro-needling treatment (see image below). Dermapen 3™’s single use cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depth allows for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. Dermapen 3™ is so advanced, it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips and on the nose.
How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)
Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments 4-6 weeks apart
How long should it take before I see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.
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. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
How should I prepare my skin for a Dermapen™ Treatment?
For optimal results, an appropriate regime of DP Dermaceuticals™ should be determined by your clinician, to encourage the skin to strengthen (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Continue to use DP Dermaceuticals™ recommended by your clinician after the treatments for a period of 6 weeks. The DP Dermaceuticals™ range is suitable for ongoing homecare.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimal needle depths, Dermapen™ Treatments are relatively painless.
How soon after filler/muscle relaxant injections can I have a Dermapen™ Treatment?
While there is no clinical evidence that Dermapen™ Treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is important to let your clinician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planning on having one done in the near future. Your clinician will be able to advise you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately.
