What is Collagen Induction Therapy? Dermapen is a professional device that yields beautiful results and is a great anti-aging, stretch mark and pigmentation solution, which is incredibly effective even for hormonal pigmentation, old stretch-marks, and some of the hardest skin issues to treat. Dermapen is best used together with other treatments, ask The Spa Room for recommendations. 

How Collagen Induction Therapy with Dermapen works:

Dermapen is a natural way to improve the appearance of the skin and reverse the signs of aging. The treatment works on:

  • Acne scars

  • Pigmentation

  • Age spots

  • Wrinkles

  • Scarring

  • Stretch marks

Dermapen therapy provides advanced skin micro-surgical needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

The principle behind the Dermapen is stimulating cell renewal and new collagen, without damaging the epidermis. The treatment uses 13 very fine needles designed to achieve a ‘controlled injury’ to the skin without damage. The needles create micro-channels into the deeper skin layers resulting in an increased absorption of the active ingredients into the skin from products.

As the skin repairs itself, new collagen is deposited in the papillary dermis, plumping the skin from underneath, to smooth out wrinkles fine lines and indented scars. The skins strength, collagen and elastin are improved for a rejuvenated, smooth and youthful complexion.

Regular treatments result in a firmer, smoother and more youthful skin.

The DERMAPEN treatment

Dermapen therapy utilises sterile single-use devices.

We will use a Dermapen to produce thousands of microscopic needle-columns in the skin. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day.

Does DERMAPEN hurt?

We use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable.

What results can I expect Of Dermapen?

After a Dermapen therapy treatment your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen and elastin is formed, new skin cells are regenerated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and this will continue over the following months, providing you with gradual and long lasting enhancement. The Spa Room recommends a minimum of 3 Micro-Needling sessions to see results. 

How many treatments are recommended with Dermapen?

We normally recommend that your Dermapen therapy consists of a series of three treatments with approximately 4-6 weeks between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary that the client has up to 9 treatments.

Are there any side effects with Dermapen?

Immediately after the treatment yours skin will look as though you have moderate sunburn and it may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day. There are other minor possible side effects and these will be discussed at your consultation.

Post Treatment Care

We will advise you of your post treatment regime at your consultation.
