Dermapen 4™ is the breakthrough of the decade utilising the most advanced needle cartridge innovation to vertical 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, RETEXTURISING and overall skin renewal on the body, from hard to reach areas such as around eyes, neck, lips, nose and larger areas of neck and décolleté, stomach, legs for stretch mark treatments. Dermapen 4™ is the most advanced microneedling device available. Dermapen 4™ treatments are faster, safer and produce optimal results.

HOW SOON WILL 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 recommended post-treatment care.
IS IT PAINFULL?
Traditional dermal rolling techniques proved to be bloody and painful treatment, requiring the application of topical anaesthetic cream before treatments. A progression was seen with Dermapen3™which caused less epidermal (skin) damage, and reduced levels of pain and discomfort for safer, more effective microneedling treatments. Today with Dermapen4™ there is no comparison - this is the most comfortable treatment, virtually pain-free microneedling treatment available. Dermapen4™treatments are so comfortable there is no need for any topical anaesthetic cream. Just lay back and enjoy stunning results.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER TREATMENT?
The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is virtually no downtime and the healing process is quick. Aftercare is also very simple and can be fully administered at home. Localised erythema may last up to 2 days post treatment. Makeup may be used 24 hours post procedure to reduce any visible redness. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after Dermapen4™ treatment.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OR RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH DERMAPEN4™ TREATMENT?
Side effects experienced with Dermapen4™ will usually subside within 48 hours. They include erythema, stinging, itching and tightness of the skin.
HOW LONG DOES DERMAPEN™ TREATMENT TAKE?
A full face can be treated in 10 minutes, but we allow 50 minutes for the full treatment including the skin preparation and the post treatment mask.
HOW MANY DERMAPEN™ TREATMENTS WILL I REQUIRE?
Can be done as one off treatment, however we recommend 3-6 treatments for the best results. Generalised rejuvenation can be achieved in as little as 3 treatments. Conditions such as post acne scarring may require minimum 5 sessions.
WHAT IS POST TREATMENT AFTERCARE?
· Use recommended medical grade skincare daily. It will relieve the symptoms of redness, inflammation, swelling, tightness or flakiness. It will encourage repair process within tour skin and prevent from any further damage.
· Daily use of medical grade SPF is non-negotiable post-microneedling procedure as your skin barrier will be more vulnerable to damage.
· During recovery, the use of scrubs or active ingredients such as vitamin A or AHAs and perfumed products should be stopped for a minimum of 7 days.
· Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks after a Dermapen4™ treatment as the skin will be sensitive.
· Avoid makeup for 24h. Any redness may be easily concealed with a mineral make-up during recovery.
· It is recommended to avoid high-cardio workouts and any activities that may cause heat or sweat for a minimum of 48 hours post-treatment.
· In case the skin develops a crust or a scab, you must not pick it as that may lead to scarring.
