Dermapen® Collagen Induction Therapy
Beautiful for: improving skin texture, softening fine lines and smoothing out scars by stimulating your body’s own collagen production.
As we age, our skin loses it elasticity and moisture, collagen fibres harden. These changes cause fine lines to form particularly around our eyes and mouth. To slow these changes, we offer collagen induction therapy using the Medical Dermapen.
Dermapen collagen induction therapy uses superfine, superfast needles that stimulate your body’s natural healing response and collagen production by causing micro-trauma to the deeper layers of skin. Your body reacts by releasing growth factor, regenerating these layers with fresh new skin cells and boosting blood supply.
This treatment can be done on the face, neck and décolletage. For full facial rejuvenation we suggest at least three treatments at intervals of four weeks. You may need more if you have extensive scarring. Dermapen treatment every six to twelve months will help you maintain the best results.

Tell me about Dermapen®
Is there downtime after treatment?
Downtime is pretty short. You’ll probably notice mild redness and swelling which starts settling down within an hour.
Does it hurt?
Your therapist will apply topical anaesthetic before your treatment to make it as comfortable as possible. Needles are so tiny and move so quickly that pain is absolutely minimal anyway.
How long does a treatment take?
Around 60 minutes – including applying the anaesthetic and the time it takes to numb the area. The actual Dermapen treatment only takes about 20 minutes.
How long do Dermapen results last?
Each person's skin is unique, and it's impossible to say for certain how long an individual's treatment will last. We find most clients’ results last at least 12 weeks. If you take care of your skin, you may find the benefits of Dermapen last much longer.
How soon will I see results?
You should see an improvement within a week. But around three or four weeks is the sweet spot when you’ll see the most dramatic benefits.
