What is Dermapen 4 microneedling?

What is microneedling? Microneedling is a procedure whereby fine needles are used to create micro channels in the skin. The purpose of creating many thousands of tiny injuries is to stimulate the skin’s own natural repair process. These micro-injuries cause the cells of the skin to naturally produce more collagen, elastin and growth factors to heal and repair the skin from within. Creating these channels has a further benefit as the channels allow active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin.

What can we treat using Dermapen4 Microneedling?

  • Lines and wrinkles – One of the major outcomes of needling is that the skin is stimulated to produce collagen which softens lines and plumps the skin for a more lifted appearance.

  • Acne – Microneedling allows oxygen to enter the skin through the micro channels created by the needles. The bacteria which cause acne cannot survive in the presence of oxygen so the numbers of bacteria are reduced.

  • Scarring- Surgical scars, stretch marks, injury and burn scars can all be treated using a precise needle depth to stimulate new skin formation and soften existing scar tissue.

  • Pigmentation- Sun damage, melasma, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (caused by scarring or trauma) can all be reduced with Dermapen4. Combining needling with a targeted treatment MG-Collection pigmentation ampoule gives even better results.

  • Rosacea- Dermapen4 treatments can successfully minimise the appearance of common rosacea symptoms by normalising the creation of blood vessels (known as angiogenesis) and the release of regulatory growth factors.

  • Enlarged pores- The skin’s natural wound-healing response is activated by microneedling. This produces new collagen which plumps and tightens the enlarged pores, effectively making them appear smaller.

  • Stretch marks – Dermapen4 treatments encourage the production and distribution of new collagen to remodel the stretch mark scars and greatly improve their appearance.

What is involved in the treatment? Firstly the skin is thoroughly cleansed and disinfected. A new sterile needle cartridge is inserted into the Dermapen4, this cartridge is for one use only and is discarded after the treatment. If you have chosen to add a targeted treatment ampoule this is applied to the skin as well as hyaluronic acid and the active ingredients are needled into the skin. Following the needling a hyaluronic mask containing copper peptides is applied to boost hydration levels and ease any redness. To finish off the treatment aftercare is applied as well as our hero aftercare product Cover Recover. This product acts as a shield for the skin providing SPF protection, reducing redness and hydrating the skin.

Why is Dermpen4 microneedling different to any other form of needling? Dermapen4 offers leading innovation with its patented technology. The needle cartridges contain a micro-chip that relays information about the skin, the needle depth and speed back to the motor located in the pen. The speed of the Dermapen4 sets this microneedling apart. The 16-needle cartridge delivers 1920 puncture channels per second resulting in a very efficient treatment. The needles move so quickly and oscillate in a way that confuses the pain receptors in the skin . This technology leads to reduced discomfort and allows a quick and comfortable treatment. This means NO ANAESTHETIC REQUIRED! Last, but definitely not least,Dermapen4 means minimal downtime. Cover Recover allows you to leave the clinic and return immediately to your day-to-day tasks, any redness is usually completely gone by the next day.

When will I see results? You will see an immediate plumping of the skin following your treatment. Acne patients will see blemishes fade within days but the real lasting results will show in 6 to 8 weeks as this is the skin’s natural cycle. For optimum results we recommend a minimum of 3 sessions. Time between treatments is dependent on the depth of the needling and ranges between 4 and 8 weeks. Homecare is a crucial part of any skin journey and we strongly recommend using premium homecare products in conjunction with in-clinic treatments to achieve maximum benefits and outstanding results.
