Dermapen 4

Dermapen  4 is the most technologically advanced microneedling device available. Dermapen 4 treatments are faster, safe and produce optimal results.

Dermapen 4 is the breakthrough of the decade 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 microneedling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical 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, retexturising 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 décolleté.

Indications:

  • Dermapen will improve skin texture
  • Improve fine lines & wrinkles
  • Improve enlarged pores
  • Improve acne scarring
  • For Skin Types 1-6
The Dermapen 4 treatments are comfortable, virtually pain-free. Numbing cream is optional

Rejuvenation: 3-6 treatments      
6-8 weeks apart

Superficial treatments may be recommended at 4 week intervals.

While there is no clinical evidence that Dermapen treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is important to let your clinician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planning one in the near future. Your clinician will be able to advise you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately.

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 3 to 6 treatments (spaced 2-8 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.

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. Patient may apply foundation 2-3 hours after the treatment.

Teosyal is a Booster cocktail that you can add to the Dermapen procedure for a greater skin redensification effect and for the prevention of the signs of ageing.

This cocktail consists out of:

  • 8 Amino Acids for the cell regeneration process and hydration
  • 3 Antioxidants for protection against free radicals
  • 2 Minerals
  • 1 Vitamin B6 for cell metabolism

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is a very effective age prevention and age correction treatment where a patient’s own platelets are used during the treatment.

Pixel Peel is a treatment whereby the skin is micro-needled with Dermapen, to create channels within the skin.
