The DermaPen® microneedling device is a small, handheld device used to create tiny punctures in the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which can help to reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. The DermaPen® can be used on all skin types and is safe for use on sensitive areas such as the face.
How does the DermaPen® work?
The DermaPen® uses small needles that quickly move up and down, penetrating the surface of the skin. This action creates micro-channels that naturally increase the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. By doing so, it can address a wide range of concerns on the face, turning back the hands of time and treating skin imperfections such as poor texture and tone.

Is the DermaPen® treatment painful?
The DermaPen® treatment may cause some discomfort, but this can be minimized by using a numbing cream prior to treatment. Most people report the sensation is similar to that of sandpaper moving across the skin.
How long does it take to notice results from the DermaPen® treatment?
Some people may see immediate results after their first treatment, but typically it takes a series of treatments to see the full results of the DermaPen®. Most people need between 3-6 treatments, scheduled 4-6 weeks apart, to see optimal results.
