Medical Needling

What is Medical Needling?

Medical needling is a revolutionary anti-age treatment and can also treat an array of other skin concerns. The Dermapen treatment stimulates your own body’s collagen production for smoothing the skin and treating fine lines and wrinkles.

Medical Needling was first introduced by Dr Des Fernandes to correct a number of skin conditions. The results of skin needling are superior to dermabrasion and other abrasive treatments.

It is a simple, safe, painless and virtually risk free treatment for:

  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Lack of skin firmness and elasticity
  • Scarring
  • Enlarged pores
  • Pitting from Acne
  • Sun damage
  • To diminish the appearance of old surgical scars
  • To lighten pigmentation marks
  • Stretch marks

Skin needling (also known as Collegen Induction Therapy) is the latest skin renewal technique to restore a healthy youthful appearance to your skin at a fraction of the cost of comparable therapies and with minimal or zero downtime.

Skin needling produces similar results to Dermabrasion, Lasers and Deep Chemical Peels but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the epidermis. As a result the healing time is significantly shorter and there is no post-treatment skin sensitivity to UV light.

Skin needling is also one of the few skin therapies that is suitable for treating ALL skin types, including ethnic skin. It can also treat the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and on the neck area.

What is the Dermapen?

The Dermapen creates a multitude of tiny puncture wounds to the dermis which induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. Creating dermal damage without removal of the healthy epidermis, as with other resurfacing techniques, means the healing time is rapid and does not cause any comparable pain. Results are quick and will last. The Dermapen is the most cost effective way of effective skin regeneration when compared to many other therapies.

What is the Dermapen used for?

  • To restore firmness and tightness to flaccid skin. A less invasive alternative to small face-lift and eye-lifting procedures
  • To smooth lines, wrinkles and folds, improves skin texture and the appearance of large pores as well as acne scars
  • To help relax old scars
  • To diminish the appearance of old scars
  • To lighten pigmentation marks and stretch marks

How It Works

Medical needling causes microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface layer of the skin. This action releases a series of growth factors that promote the production of collagen, elastin, growth factors and other substances. In turn, collagen and elastin help to tighten and smooth the skin. The treatments create dermal damage without removal of the healthy epidermis. The needling process uses a 1.5mm sized needle which causes minimal swelling and modest to no bruising.

It is important to have had a prior session before you commence with the Dermapen treatment to ensure your skin has the strength to withstand the needles. A patch test will need to be taken out.
