How does Dermapen Microneedling work?

You’ve probably already heard of microneedling, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy or skin needling. It may sound a little intimidating, but it’s actually a very simple, painless and effective way to treat everything from wrinkles and pigmentation through to acne, scarring and stretch marks.

The treatment works by gliding a small device over the skin, which delivers microscopic punctures (only a few millimetres deep) using very tiny needles. You won’t really feel this, as they’re moving incredibly fast in a vertical stamping motion. The treatment stimulates the natural healing process in the skin, resulting in fresh, new collagen and elastin, and a rejuvenated and more youthful complexion. Yes please!

To enhance this process, active solutions containing collagen, vitamins, antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients are applied and penetrate the deeper layers of the skin through these tiny channels to maximise your skin results.

What sort of results will I get from Dermapen Microneedling?

One thing you’ll need to know is that like most transformations, the results aren’t immediate. Your skin will be glowing and a little plump and pink right after your treatment, but since your body needs to create the fresh new collagen, the real outcome will come a couple of months later. You’ll get best results when you do a few treatments, ideally between three and six once every month or so, for the ultimate skin rejuvenation.

Another thing to consider is that all microneedling treatments are not created equal, and some pens and techniques yield lesser results. Dermapen is the original and most trusted microneedling brand, designed in Australia with an improved version every few years, leading us to the latest model, the Dermapen4. This device is safer than ever, with an anti-contamination mechanism and an increased amount of smaller, faster-moving needles than other devices, meaning less pain and more gain.

Why choose a Dermapen Gold Authorised Treatment Provider?

If you’re considering microneedling, selecting a Dermapen Gold Authorised Treatment Provider Clinic will ensure you’re not only choosing superior results, you’re guaranteed to be in safe hands with a quality device, protocol skin infusion products and advanced safety standards.

Not all microneedling is created equal. While all devices have been designed to boost the collagen and elastin production in the skin by stimulating a healing response, the outcome you’ll achieve will greatly differ depending on the device and technique used.  When it comes to an in-clinic device (which go deeper into the skin than home rollers), this is where the unique benefits of the Dermapen4 come in.

Dermapen is the original microneedling brand, with years of experience, millions of dollars of research and only the most advanced technology and design – meaning greater precision, speed, safety and features with each new device. The Dermapen4 generates 48% more microchannels than its predecessor the Dermapen3, and 104% more than the average microneedling device. This is due to the smaller, greater number of needles oscillating at 110 revolutions per second (and as a bonus, less pain for your treatment!) working to create additional, tinier micro-injuries at an adjustable depth, and ultimately optimising skin rejuvenation results.

All Gold ATP clinics use the latest Dermapen4 device, so you can rest assured you’re achieving superior skin outcomes with the highest performing device.

The Dermapen4 excels in hygiene and safety precautions, and needling your face isn’t something you want to be skimping on when it comes to these factors! The unrivalled and patent-pending design of the anti-contamination system on the Dermapen4 ensures no fluid backflow, no cross-contamination and no drag of needles. In addition, advanced oscillation technology means the needles have increased speed and safety. And most important of all, each treatment uses an entirely new, sterile needle cartridge (handled carefully with sterile gloves).

All Gold ATP clinics are highly trained and skilled in safety features and keeping equipment sterile by our Dermapen trainers, meaning no risks are taken when it comes to hygiene and safety.

We’ve heard more than a few alarming stories with the wrong products being used on the skin during microneedling treatments. Some products that are usually safe and nourishing to the skin (one example we’ve seen recently was Emu Oil!) can cause severe reactions when infused into the skin with microneedling. The DP Dermaceuticals line are the only protocol products specifically developed to be used when performing Dermapen treatments and have been designed to help your skin achieve optimum results before and after microneedling. Each product has proven outcomes and clean, active ingredients to boost skin results and healing, such as vitamins, minerals and hyaluronic acid. These products have been endorsed for years by thousands of practitioners around the world for safe ingredient infusion into the skin without side effects.
