What is it and how does it work?
Dermapen Medical TM, awarded highly commended treatment of the year in 2015 from the Aesthetic Journal, has revolutionised the way aesthetic professionals treat numerous skin conditions.
As we age, the body’s natural production of supporting cells, fibroblasts and the skin’s collagen and elastin naturally diminish leading to wrinkles and skin sagging. Stimulating the skin to produce more fibroblasts, collagen and elastin it’s called ‘Collagen Induction Therapy’ and is used as an alternative to facelifts and other surgical interventions with remarkable results.

Who is the treatment recommended for?
For patients that have acne scars, wrinkles and any kind of textural issues on their face, Dermapen Medical is our go-to treatment. Is good for patients that are unwilling to tolerate the downtime and possible side effects of more aggressive treatments, such as CO2.
It’s great as an anti-aging treatment as well, for someone with mildly aged skin or superficial wrinkles who is looking for a treatment to maintain their youthful appearance. There is very little risk, they’re not going to thin out their skin, they’re not prone to getting hyperpigmentation, and overall the treatment is very well tolerated.

Our patients are extremely pleased with the results. It is such a unique and versatile device that we treat a wide-range of ages with this device, including people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, right up to their 70s, it is simply amazing.
How many treatments do I need?
