More About Dermapen TattOff 

Developed for use with the Dermapen™ 3 handpiece, Dermapen TattOff™ is a versatile system that delivers precision tattoo removal and targeted skin rejuvenation. The system offers a non-laser and non-thermolytic technology which removes all tattoo inks, located anywhere on the body.

A specialised lactic acid compound is gently infused to the depth of unwanted ink deposits. Subsequent micro-trauma cascades a regenerative response. This forms a vibrant scab that physically draws up the tattoo pigment as part of the renewing process. Once the scab falls off, so does the unwanted colour.

Patient care and safety are improved via a grid technique, allowing the systematic removal of unwanted tattoos in as few as four treatments. This process reduces the risk of toxicity, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and hypertrophic scars associated with other removal methods.

Dermapen TattOff™ is suitable for the permanent removal of cosmetic, professionally applied and even amateur tattoos.

More About Dermapen and DermapenWorld

Skin needling has evolved since the Chinese first used sharpened bamboo sticks 2000 years ago.

Skin needling, also called ‘micro-needling’ therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT) and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure.

In 2010, Dermapen™ pioneered vertical fractional needling technology, a vast improvement for patients who were treated with dermal rollers. With numerous design patents, theDermapen™ 3 delivers 1296 ‘micro-channels’ (punctures) per second. This amounts to around 1.5 million micro-channels during a 20 minute, full-face treatment.

When the needles puncture the skin it creates a controlled skin injury. Each micro-channel triggers the body to fill the microscopic wound with new collagen and elastin. Through this process of neovascularisation and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars and pore size. Procedural versatility enables a treatment depth from 0.1mm to 2.5mm that may be adjusted as required for customised patient results. Treatment indications include acral vitiligo, melasma, rosacea, keloid scarring, acne and alopecia.

The Dermapen™ 3 automated skin-needling device is now distributed in over 58 countries worldwide and is used by over 10,000 leading medical practitioners.

Dermapen™ and Skin Needling: The Answer to Skin Perfection?

Dermapen™ and Skin Needling: The Answer to Skin Perfection?


Dermapen™ and Skin Needling: The Answer to Skin Perfection?

Skin needling can treat any skin type – and an array of skin issues. Inskin Cosmedics CEO and founder, Marie Enna-Cocciolone, talks Dermapen3, and everything we need to know about this latest technology in skin needling.

Inskin Cosmedics has been offering skin needling for almost eight years, and with the announcement that the company has been appointed the exclusive Australian distributor for DermapenWorld, Inskin Cosmedics CEO and founder Marie Enna-Cocciolone is well placed to talk about the technology. We talk about the latest version of this leading skin pen – and why it could be just the technology for your salon business.

Dermapen3 is the latest release in skin needling technology.

Dermapen3 is the latest release in skin needling technology.

Why did Inskin Cosmetics decide to take on Dermapen?

“Our Skin-Inject and DNC rollers have been super effective and successful,” says Marie Enna-Cocciolone, CEO and founder of Inskin Cosmedics. “Technology notoriously changes quickly and people look for easier, faster and just as effective advances – skin needling is no exception. We had been searching for a pen for almost three years and Dermapen was our benchmark; never had we imagined we would have the honour of working with the original and global leader itself. We love the fact that Dermapen3 is where we are starting from. We have missed the trials and errors of the first pen, we have benefited from the refining of the Dermapen2 model and we get to start off with the absolute best.”

What is exciting about this newest version?

“As an automated skin needling device, Dermapen is easy to use and the results are simply outstanding,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “The oscillating stamp-like pen harmoniously vibrates and glides over the skin providing the most efficient control, safety and comfort possible, whilst delivering treatment in the shortest time frame with no downtime for your patients. Dermapen with its unique needle tip and strong motor is capable of creating approximately 1300 micro channels per second into the skin. “The concept is made even better with ‘DP Dermaceuticals’ a specially formulated skin care range with just the right level of actives to support skin rejuvenation and wound healing.”

What issues can skin needling correct?

Used by practitioners in over 50 countries Dermapen effectively treats multiple skin conditions including… ageing, wrinkles, various types of scars, acne, dilated pores, stretch-marks, hyper and hypo pigmentation, rosacea, telangiectasia, milia, keratosis pilaris and alopecia,” says ays Enna-Cocciolone. “It also stimulates angiogenesis [the formation of new blood vessels.]

How painful is skin needling?

“The needle depth is adjustable according to the skin condition you are treating with fully adjustable oscillation speed,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Because of this speed and comfort, patients can enjoy their Dermapen treatment sans topical anaesthetic.”

DP Dermaceuticals’ a specially formulated skin care range with just the right level of actives to support skin rejuvenation and wound healing.”

DP Dermaceuticals’ is a specially formulated skin care range with just the right level of actives to support “skin rejuvenation and wound healing”.

What technology has gone into Dermapen3?

Dermapen3 is the gold standard of C.I.T/ Fractional Rejuvenation, which uses an automated needling system,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Over the years the device has been taken through its paces to provide what we know today as a benchmark device.”

This device automated, what does that mean for salons?

The vertical needle entry has no needle bend risk and is automated to allow for a quick and effective way of treating small or curved skin areas. The treatment is non thermolytic [doesn’t break down molecules] and non-ablative, which eliminates the risk of heat and other injuries,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “The electrically charged automation, powered with a high duty cycle motor with AOVN (Automated Oscillating Vertical Needle) Technology, reduces epidermal damage, discomfort and procedural downtime.”

Is it an easy piece of technology for salons to incorporate into their treatment menu?

Incredibly easy, but that’s not to say it doesn’t require a dedicated training day to ensure a full theory and practical understanding,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Both the technology and device are easy to learn and apply, the conditions they treat extensive and non-invasive making Dermapen an effective corrective treatment choice for almost every skin condition. Given that more and more of our partners are enjoying treatments without the need for an anaesthetic cream and considering the speed of the treatment the ROI is also far better than most modalities.”

Do you offer education to your clients?

Not only do we offer it, we insist on it,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “We won’t sell any of our devices/modalities/brands without training. Our aim is to ensure our partner’s investment is effective, their treatment plans and solutions upgraded and that their customers keep coming back. The Dermapen treatment, whilst easy, has a very serious side and one we ensure it is taught thoroughly.”

And if you are in this business, you should know that there are other easy ways to get more clients or customers for your skin clinic business. Check the list below:

  • Keep a professional image of your skin clinic. People who heard of your clinic through friends of friends will definitely check how the clinic looks. It should give an impression of impeccable elegance and professionalism. Your clinic will reflect the kind of professional service you will give to your clients.
  • Have a Professional and Optimized Website. This is the key to your campaign. Since more and more are turning to the internet with their everyday search for information, having an optimized website to land on the top pages of the search engine results page would be the best way for the searchers and potential customers to see your site. Invest in the expertise of an experienced SEO company or team to manage the online marketing activities of your website. The results will surely pay off.
  • Create a business page for your business in your social media account. This will keep you active and visible to a wider audience and customer base.

  • Make a commitment to community events and activities. People easily remember those who do good deeds for the community. Offer free facial or consultation with skin problems. Join medical missions organized by the local community. Give something back to the people. This will mark your value to the community.Wider Customer Base -- Offline Business Marketing
  • Request your existing clients for testimonials. If other people read real client’s feedback on your services, they will need no more encouragement or convincing. They will take action and will visit your clinic for initial consultation.

How to Maximise the Profits At Your Medical Aesthetic Clinic

How to Maximise the Profits At Your Medical Aesthetic Clinic

What can you do now to ensure a successful year?As we move into the second quarter of 2015, it’s time to get serious about your profits. If you are committed to maximizing your growth this year, you must have ZERO TOLERANCE for mediocre staff, sloppy processes and lazy practices that underwhelm your patients. Aesthetic patients today won’t tolerate being treated like second class citizens. They will give their disposable income to the practice that makes them feel special.

Remember there is always someone behind you who is looking at taking your place in the market.

Creating a successful aesthetic practice in times of economic uncertainty is a daunting challenge. Emphasising the patient’s experience, effectively using social media and the web, and an ego-devoid introspective analysis of the flaws of your practice are essential for any successful aesthetic practitioner to grow and be prosperous despite any shortfalls in the economy.

The core principles in medicine and business can, at times, be contradictory. However, the essential fundamentals of medicine are consistent with the best strategies in business. For example: doing the right thing, selflessness, and empathy – bode well in business also. However business is a competitive world and the success of any company is mainly measured in financial statements. We all know that cosmetic medicine is not a general medical business; aesthetic practitioners are selling an expensive luxury, not a health necessity. However, it is important to remember that aesthetic medicine is still, first and foremost, medicine, and beyond any other profession or business, practitioners have an enormous responsibility to always do what is in the best interest of their patient rather than themselves. No other profession is granted such responsibility or high standards. Success should be measured in the patients’ well-being and not just the bottom line.

Aesthetic practitioners have a responsibility to treat the patient first using the most responsible and most appropriate treatments while keeping in mind the luxuries of retail to keep consumer driven patients happy and to remain profitable. So how can practitioners practice this fine balance in a down economy and still thrive?

Most importantly, the ‘product’ has to be good. Regardless of the economy, only a business providing a good product will succeed in the long term. If the product is less than promised, the consumer may be fooled for a limited period of time by creative and expensive advertising, but eventually, the individual will catch on to the inferiority and the business will fail. In aesthetic medicine, the practitioner and staff are the product!

That means any service offered by the practice or persons who represent the practitioner must be aligned with the highest standards of quality. Their competency will be perceived as a reflection of the practitioner. Additionally, the practitioner will have to be well versed in the medicinal products offered and continue to perfect his or her technical skills.

If the product (practitioner) is no good, word spreads fast. This is true in any economy, but with the limited opportunities and increased competition, a practice cannot tolerate even a minority of disappointed patients. For an established doctor seeing a decline in business, now is the time to act fast and implement measures to ensure the practice thrives in the current downturn. Those seeing a reduction in business need to re-evaluate their current policies with an ego-devoid introspection and attention to the following formula so they continue to grow and prosper, as your competitors wonder what happened.

The following success formula will address all of the above and, if implemented, will keep your phones ringing, your patients buying and referrals coming to you. The point is to first check your mind-set. Are you buying into media pessimism? If you are, you are not going to be open to opportunities and possibilities so fix that first.
