How Does Dermapen Microneedling Work? 

The concept of using needles for health and wellness has been around for over 4 thousand years, with origins in the traditional Chinese medicine practise of acupuncture. However, using needles for cosmetic purposes is a relatively new practice. 

Sometimes also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Dermapen microneedling involves the superficial puncturing of the skin to create thousands of flawless micro-channels. These tiny wounds stimulate collagen and elastin production, improve blood flow to the area, and deliver active ingredients in topical serums deeper into the skin (known as mesotherapy). 

Not only does Dermapen microneedling work, but it’s also 100% natural because it stimulates the body’s own rejuvenation function. 

Will Dermapen Microneedling Work for My Skin? 

You might be wondering does Dermapen microneedling work on hair loss, acne, pigmentation or old stretch marks? The answer to all these is YES … and more.

How Long Do Dermapen Microneedling Results Last? 

Unlike some facials and other rejuvenation treatments, the benefits and results of Dermapen Treatments are long-lasting. This is partly because your treatment involves more than just Dermapen microneedling.  

Our Authorised Treatment Providers are specially trained and supplied with synergistic products and skincare to offer you a holistic rejuvenation that lasts. Discover how our products all work together to get you the best results. 

After you complete your series of procedures, you’ll be advised on how to make sure the results last for as long as possible. This should include a personalised skincare routine using Dp Dermaceuticals and regular at-home Dermapen microneedling top-ups using the Dermapen HOME device. 

How Long Until I See Results of Dermapen Microneedling? 

What you want to change about your skin, the severity of your concern, and how deep the needles penetrate your skin all affect how quickly you see results.  

During the “inflammation phase” you’ll experience some residual redness and feelings of heat or warmth in your skin for 24–48 hours after a procedure. However, if correct protocols are followed (using HYLA ACTIVE 3D SCULTUPTURE MASKS to quench any dryness and COVER RECOVER to soothe, cool, heal and protect), these side effects should be minimal. We affectionately call it a “lunchtime” procedure. 

You can also expect some dryness in the week or so after your procedure, called the “proliferation phase”. You’ll start to see improvement as collagen synthesis ramps up and your skin enjoys the benefits of high-performing actives in your prescribed Dp Dermaceuticals.  

Within a couple of days to a couple of weeks, you’ll be on your way towards a new glowing complexion, with the full effect taking place during the “maturation phase” for up to 24 months after your procedure. 

What Can I Do to Get Better Results? 

To boost your results and aid healing, we highly recommend regular using Dp Dermaceuticals LED masks. You can also microneedle safely at home between clinic visits with the Dermapen HOME device, the gold standard in at-home microneedling. And always, always support your skin with the revolutionary Dp Dermaceuticals—the NON-NEGOTIABLES when microneedling.
