The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin.
Q: How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)
A: Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments, 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments, 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart
Q: Should I prepare my skin before having a Dermapen™ Treatment?
A: For optimal results, a period of effective active treatment creams, such as Vitamin A, C or Resveratrol & Procyanidin is recommended to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Consult your clinician about the recommended DP Dermaceuticals™ Pre- and Post-procedure protocol.
Q: How long should it take before I see results?
A: Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: For minimum needle depths Dermapen™ Treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep may require a topical anesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments virtually pain free.
Q: Is there any downtime after treatments?
A: Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
Q: How soon after filler injections can I have a Dermapen™ Treatment?
A: It is recommended to wait at least 7 days after filler injections so that any post-treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. It is also possible to have your Dermapen™ Treatment several days before having fillers injected. Consult with your practitioner prior to determine exactly how long a wait is best in each particular case.
