Dermapen 3 Skin Needling

What is the Dermapen 3™?

The Dermapen 3™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate your skin!

The Dermapen 3™ can visibly improve the appearance of:

  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • enlarged pores
  • surgical, acne and trauma scars
  • stretch marks
  • pigmentation
  • skin tightening

 The Dermapen 3™ is safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin micro needling rollers due to its unique vertical micro-needling technology.

 The Dermapen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depths allow the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees and increases the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the absorption of products, generating less pain and downtime for the patient.

 The Dermapen 3™ can effectively treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Because of the vertical delivery, the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue.

 The Dermapen 3™ promotes scar-less healing similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime. The mechanism of injury is a natural process, which makes the Dermapen 3™ a natural approach to skin therapy.

Dermapen 3 before and after

Q: How long should it take before I see results with the Dermapen 3™? 

A:  Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.

Dermapen 3 before and after

Q: Is treatment with the Dermapen 3™ painful? 

A:  A topical anaesthetic cream is applied for 15-30 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments virtually pain free.

Q: Is there any downtime after treatments with the Dermapen 3™? 

A:  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 make up will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

Q: How soon after filler/anti-wrinkle injections can I have a Dermapen 3™ Treatment? 

A:  It is recommended to wait at least 14 days after filler injections, so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. It is also possible to have your Dermapen™ Treatment several days before having fillers injected. Consult with us prior to determine exactly how long a wait is best in each particular case.

Q: How much do treatments with the Dermapen 3™ cost? 

A:  Casual treatments are $350 each. We also offer a package of 6 treatments for $1,650 (which works out at $275 per treatment)
