DM of the week

What is Dermapen and what does it do?

This week we’ve been asked an awful lot about our Dermapen or skin needling treatment. This treatment is fantastic at reducing the visibility of fine lines and acne scarring the Dermapen involves 10 microfibre needles moving over the surface of the skin creating channels through the skin. Through those channels we infuse the plasma from your blood to help to stimulate collagen and improve the texture of your skin. Generally speaking 3 sessions are needed each session would be about 4 weeks apart and patients see really nice improvements in the visibility of their scarring at the end of their 3rd session. It’s a very easy and straightforward procedure that we do here in the clinic, usually in a 60 minute appointment and you will have a little bit of redness for about 3 to 5 days after the treatment.
