Dermapen 4 is a micro-needling device which uses a unique disposable needle tip with an automated, vibrating motion, it is safer and more effective than traditional skin needling rollers and causes less epidermal damage. Dermapen 4 has a good effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation.
Dermapen 4 creates fractional channels to your skin and enables active ingredients directly supplied to the deeper layers of the skin. Dermapen 4 promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, like fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels.
Advantage over other microneedling therapy:
- Safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin needling rollers, because of its unique vertical needling technology. Because of the vertical delivery the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue
- Dermapen 4’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depth allow the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees and increase the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the absorption of products
- Sterilized one-time use disposable needle tip to ensure hygiene and prevent cross infection
- Ability to treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips)

What to expect at your visit?
Prior to the procedure our doctor will explain the process to you and clearly define your expectations of the treatment and how many sessions will be needed. They will tell you whether or not the results you are looking for will be achievable using this method. It is important that the correct diagnosis has been made by a doctor prior to treatment. We have the latest skin analysis system Visia® 7 to determine whether you are suitable for Dermapen 4 treatment. Before the treatment, we would apply numbing cream and there is minimal pain during the treatment. There may be pain or irritation after the treatment which may last for 1-2 days.
What to expect after your treatment?
You may experience facial redness for a few days after the treatment. You may develop petechia, which is when little blood vessels burst under your skin causing tiny red dots.
- You will be advised to avoid sun exposure for several weeks and use a daily sunscreen
- Any tightness or flaking may be relieved with moisturization
- The use of scrubs or active ingredients such as vitamin A or AHAs should be stopped for a minimum of 7 days
- Redness or petechiae (blood blisters) may be easily concealed with a mineral make-up during recovery
- Strenuous exercise for a minimum of 2 days post- Dermapen 4 treatment are not advised
The results from micro-needling skin remodelling can go on for months after each Dermapen 4 treatment. Results can be seen after a course of 6 treatments separated by every 4 weeks.
