Micro Needling FAQ
How Does the Dermapen Work?
The derma pen is taken over the area of skin to be treated, and tiny needles cause minute punctures to the skin. These small punctures stimulate the body’s inherent healing response, which naturally rejuvenates the skin.
What skin types are the Dermapen appropriate for?
Currently, the Dermapen micro-needling techniques are only suitable for medium Caucasian skin.
How many micro-needling treatments will I need?
It is recommended on average to receive 4-6 sessions with the Dermapen, for a more personal estimate, just ask your technician for your initial consultation.
What results can I expect from a micro-needling treatment?
You should experience an overall rejuvenation of the skin treated. This can show up as a decrease in wrinkles, sun damage, rosacea, scarring, and hyperpigmentation, as well as an increase in overall skin elasticity.
What can I expect following the treatment?
You may experience temporary redness and swelling in the area that was treated, this will go down after a few hours, or maximally a few days.
Are the treatments painful?
One of the Dermapen benefits is the increased comfort compared to older methods of micro needling, and so you should feel only minimal discomfort. If you are worried about any pain, just ask your practitioner and she will be able to advise you on the best way to manage it.
When can I resume my daily activities?
Typically, you may resume your daily activities immediately following the treatment session as it is completely non-surgical, though you may find that due to redness or soreness you would like to rest at home for a few hours following the treatment.
