What Is Dermapen?

Dermapen, which is also known as microneedling or skin needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment which uses microscopic needles to treat a number of skin conditions – from acne and scarring to ageing, pigmentation, and stretch marks. This treatment is performed by creating tiny punctures in the skin in order to encourage regenerating response and organic renewal.

At Skinnovation Laser Clinic in Sydney, we use automated technology on the market, and it is called Dermapen 4. It is one of the quality microneedling devices that are currently available, which means that you won’t make a mistake if you decide to go for a Dermapen treatment at our clinic. It delivers much faster and more optimal results than other similar treatments.

About The Procedure

As already mentioned, Dermapen 4 is quality technology that can be used for skin needling, and it is designed to boost the production of collagen and elastin, as well as to resurface your skin. Dermapen 4 will glide over your skin and create millions of fine fractional channels, and will do it much faster than other microneedling devices. These channels are responsible for carrying topical nutrients deeper into the skin, which is just the beginning of your body’s natural process of renewal. 

The treatment will result in resurfaced skin which features improved texture and overall appearance, which is simply because it triggers the production of new collagen and elastin. The best thing about Dermapen 4 is the fact that it can be used anywhere on the body – from hard-to-reach areas such as around the lips, eyes, nose, and eyelids to larger ones such as neck or décolletage. It is also important to say that Dermapen 4is the most comfortable, virtually pain-free microneedling treatment available at the moment. It is so comfortable that there is no need for topical anaesthetic cream!


 Who Is the Right Candidate for Dermapen?

Well, the better question is ‘Who isn’t the right candidate for Dermapen?’, and this is because it is an extremely comfortable treatment that inevitably delivers fantastic results, no matter your age, skin tone, and skin type. As it is minimally invasive, it won’t cause significant wounding of the skin, which means that it Dermapen 4 is able to be used by the majority of the community. This is also true for areas of the body where the skin is typically thin – these can also undergo this type of treatment since the depth of penetration is consistent. 

However, you should know that contraindications are primarily disease-related, which means that the presence of some diseases or conditions can cause problems during the treatment. For example, if you have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring, you should probably opt for another treatment that delivers similar results. The same is true if you’ve had some skin rashes recently, or if you have raised moles, warts, or lesions on the targeted area. These can cause serious problems during the treatment, as well as any active bacterial or fungal infections, so make sure to bear that in mind and you will make the right choice. Of course, you can always contact us and get in touch with our team who can advise you on the best approach tailored to your personal needs, so give us a call and schedule your free consultation at our clinic!

How to Prep for Dermapen?

Before you undergo the actual treatment, make sure to take proper care of your skin and to be extra careful with it. This means that too harsh scrubs and other aggressive skincare products should be avoided at all costs. Instead, switch to gentle moisturisers and similar products in order to have your skin in its calmest state before the treatment. Creams and gels based on aloe vera are always a good choice, and you won’t go wrong if you decide to give them a try. 

Apart from that, you should also stop taking anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil or Ibuprofen at least 3 days before the treatment. These can interfere with the natural inflammatory process which is essential for your skin’s rejuvenation. You should stay away from waxing and depilatory creams 5-7 days prior to your appointment, too. Of course, unprotected sun exposure and sunburn are a huge no-no, so don’t forget to apply sunscreen whenever you need to go out. Bear in mind that bruising is a common risk when it comes to Dermapen in Sydney, which is why you should avoid blood thinning agents such as aspirin, vitamin E, fish oil, and omega-3 at least a week before the treatment.


Recovery Period and Results

Microneedling in Sydney is a popular skin-enhancement treatment in this part of Australia, and this is primarily because of its outstanding results. As already mentioned, Dermapen 4 is performed to treat acne, scarring, pigmentation, and stretch marks, as well as to reduce the appearance of the prominent signs of ageing, which just confirms how versatile and multi-functional Dermapen 4 actually is. In the first 2-3 days, the treated skin will feel tight and sensitive to touch, which is completely normal after this kind of treatment. You should treat your skin with a gentle cleanser and cool water only, but no earlier than 4 hours after the treatment. 

Bruising and swelling are also quite common after the treatment, and these are likely to last between 2 and 7 days, depending on how aggressive was the treatment you received. Results may be seen after one treatment, as the majority of patients report a firmer, more revitalised skin, improved texture, and a visible decrease in the appearance of wrinkles, acne, scarring, pigmentation, sun damage, and enlarged pores. Depending on the personalised course prescribed by your skin technician at Skinnovation Laser Clinic, an average of 3-8 treatments may be recommended with 6-8 week intervals between each visit.
