FAQ’s
What are Dermapen™ treatments?
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, retexturizing 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, stomach and legs for stretch mark treatments.

Is the treatment painful?
Unlike traditional dermal rolling techniques, the Dermapen 4 ™ is the most comfortable and virtually pain-free microneedling treatment available, thanks to advanced technology and design. This progression started with the Dermapen 3™, which resulted in reduced levels of pain and discomfort than its predecessor – as well as safer, more effective microneedling treatments. Today, with the Dermapen 4™, there is no need for any topical anaesthetic cream (TLA), just lay back and enjoy the stunning results.

How should I prepare my skin for a Dermapen™ treatment?
As the original, trusted leader of microneedling, DermapenWorld™ has collaborated with leading research and development laboratories and clinical experts to create Dp Dermaceuticals™, the world’s first meso-infusion skincare range exclusively designed for microneedling procedures. These active meso-glide combinations are protocols endorsed by thousands of practitioners around the globe for safe infusion into the skin during skin needling procedures.
For optimal results, an appropriate homecare regime of Dp Dermaceuticals™ should be determined by your clinician to encourage the skin to prepare, strengthen and fortify (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Continue to use Dp Dermaceuticals™ for a period of 2-3 weeks before and after the Dermapen™ treatments. The Dp Dermaceuticals™ range is suitable for ongoing homecare, a medical grade dermaceutical with powerful “actives” for anti-aging and corrective skincare.

The range features a cleanser, exfoliant, moisturiser, treatment creams, 3D Sculpted masks, medicated breathable camouflage with SPF – Cover Recover™ is designed as an everyday anti ageing makeup and immediate post-treatment coverage recovery balm.

How soon after filler/muscle relaxant injections can I have a Dermapen™ treatment?
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.

How long should it take before I see results?
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.

Is there any downtime after treatments?
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. Application of Dp Dermaceuticals™ Cover Recover™ will seal and heal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

Check with your clinician before proceeding with a Dermapen procedure if you are: pregnant, using blood thinners, such as warfarin, or if you are susceptible to keloiding skin. Do not treat over keloid scars, active problematic skin, such as severe solar keratosis, raised moles/ warts, eczema or psoriasis.
