WHAT IS DERMAPEN® 4?
Dermapen® 4 is a breakthrough micro-needling treatment utilising the most advanced needle cartridge innovation to vertically pierce the skin. Dermapen® 4 glides over the skin creating millions of fine fractional channels up to 104% faster than other micro-needling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more nutrients deeper into the skin. In turn, our body's natural response triggers a natural process of repair.
The result is an increased production of collagen and elastin, resurfacing, retexturizing and overall skin renewal anywhere on the body, from hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, nose or larger areas of neck and decollete, stomach and legs for stretch mark treatments.
Dermapen® 4 delivers the ultimate in advanced and innovative micro-needling with unsurpassed results, helping to boost collagen for a more luminous-looking complexion. Dermapen® 4 is the gold standard in dermal needling and a cutting-edge skin treatment designed to improve the look of wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation, stretch marks for the face and body and also reduces acne.
As we get older we start to show signs of ageing, especially in our faces by accruing fine lines & wrinkles. Pollution and lifestyle habits also take their toll on our skin. Our skin’s renewal process slows down as we age, so Dermapen® 4 Treatments are the safe, natural alternative to improve the look and health of your skin. Dermapen® 4 Treatments along with other combination therapies can produce amazing results. What’s more, Dermapen® 4 treatments naturally work from within. The natural wound-healing responses created by micro-needling treatments will kick start the production of collagen and elastin production.
Dermapen® 4 treats a variety of skin concerns so it is suitable for all ages, skin type and ethnicities.
Anti Aging - Dermapen® 4 treatments are firstly designed to create a safe healing response within the body. This leads to ignite natural collagen and elastin production from within the skin, without harsh side effects and downtime. Consequently, this results in repairing the surface layers to result in healthier skin, looking brighter, tighter, more even toned, refined pores and reduced wrinkles.
Acne - Acne can affect all skin types and all ages, and may be caused by a combination of genetics, hormone changes, health, stress and or environmental factors. Hormones can stimulate excess sebum (or oil) production, excess oil, dry skin and debris combined can become trapped in the pore. If the pore becomes blocked the acne bacteria can cause inflammation and can make the skin more susceptible to other bacteria. Dermapen® 4 micro- needling regenerates the affected area by stimulating the production and distribution of collagen. You will see an overall improvement in the appearance of problematic skin breakouts, black/whiteheads, acne reduced, and scarring minimised.
Scarring - Dermapen® 4 is the only micro-needling device with a dedicated scar setting and protocols for revision of deep, atrophic scars; including surgical, burn contracture, striae and post-acne scars.
Pigmentation - Unlike some Laser treatments, Dermapen® 4 removes the risk of heat injury and hypopigmentation risks, whilst promoting optimised cell function. Therefore, this makes it a suitable procedure for any skin type and ethnicities affected by melasma (pigmentation) and with a predisposition to hyperpigmentation. Dermapen® 4 treatments have also been found to be effective on Hypopigmentation Vitiligo treatments, working to reverse the production of hyperpigmentation and melasma.
Dermapen® 4 treatments can be effective for a multitude of conditions including Rosacea, telangiectasia, seborrheic dermatitis, and much more.
The actual needling treatment is very quick around 10-15mins. We begin by cleansing your skin, post needling we apply an ultra-soothing, 3D sculpted mask for hydration and healing, finishing with a bespoke cocktail of serums to help treat your main concern and SPF if needed.
Unlike traditional dermal rolling techniques, Dermapen® 4 is the most comfortable micro-needling treatment available, thanks to advanced technology and design. With Dermapen® 4 there is no need for any topical anaesthetic, just lay back and enjoy the stunning results.
We recommend starting with a course of 3-6 treatments. Treatments are normally 3-4 weeks apart. At Face It, I will create a bespoke skin plan for you and schedule your skin treatments for the best possible results.
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results continue to improve over the next 6 - 12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment skincare plan from your therapist.
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.
