What is skin needling?

Skinneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy is undoubtedly one of the best non-surgical treatments for many skin conditions. Skin needling makes use of a handheld device, such as Dermapen™, to create micro-needle punctures on the skin. Skin needling makes use of the body’s natural healing abilities. The microscopic injuries then trigger a series of processes which include the stimulation of growth factors and hormones which in turn increase collagen and elastin production. It can take 4-6 treatments 6-8 weeks apart to get the desired results.

How Does It Work?

What are the benefits of skin needling?

Skin needling is typically performed in-clinic by a trained skin professional. It can also be done at home in between clinic microneedling sessions for best results. Here are some of the skin needling benefits you can expect from the procedure:

  • Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Fixes the tone and texture of the skin
  • Combats skin ageing signs including wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, sagging and dry skin
  • Lifts, tightens and adds a glow to the skin
  • Reduces the appearance of skin blemishes including scars and hyperpigmentation issues
  • Enhances the efficacy of skincare products as it improves the absorptive qualities of the skin

Dermapen™ FAQs

How quickly are results visible?

Visibly rejuvenated skin can generally be seen after just 6-8 days following a procedure, with results further improving over time. A course of Dermapen™ sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however, improvement is usually noticeable after just one treatment

Is Dermapen™ safe?

Injections are not a part of a Dermapen™ treatment, so allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is virtually no downtime and the healing process is quick. Aftercare is also very simple and can be fully administered at home.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling?

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

What can be expected after Dermapen™ treatment?

Day 1: Erythema and redness, severity of which will depend upon the aggressiveness of the performed treatment.
Day 2: Red or pink hue similar to moderate sunburn may persist. There may be some noticeable swelling on the second day.
Day 3: Skin may still retain a pink hue, or return to normal colour. Swelling subsides.
