WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT DERMAPEN®
Dermapen® is a safe and effective micro-needling device used for penetrating the skin. At Total Face Group, we have clinics around Australia that are dedicated to providing dermapen treatment to enable patients to look and feel the way they want. With its remarkable vertical needling technology, dermapen highly recommended over traditional needling rollers. It also has an amazing effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation because all of the active ingredients are evenly distributed into the deeper skin layers. When passing through the skin surface, it stimulates production of collagen and allows creation of fine channels. Almost 80 percent of tropical nutrients are present in these channels, leading to even distribution into the skin fibroblasts to provide sufficient nutrients in the cells of the dermis area and basal layer. Because the active ingredients are absorbed effectively, the skin’s ability to repair itself is enhanced.
Dermapen causes minimal damage to the skin and fewer traumas. In this way, less pain and discomfort is experienced by the patient than the traditional skin needling rollers. With its adjustable needle depths, it can pierce through the skin layers at a 90-degree angle without difficulty. It also enhances the effectiveness of treatments by maximising product absorption with minimal pain and downtime. It can effectively treat hard to reach areas such as the nose, lips and areas around the eyes. Dermapen is similar to IPL, chemical peels, fractional laser treatments and laser resurfacing, and has less side effects and downtime. It is extremely safe and effective in treating wrinkles, fine lines, acne, scars and texture. The treatment usually takes about half an hour to complete at one of our clinics.
Prior to the treatment, a consultation at one of our clinics is necessary. Questions regarding yourself and the treatment are usually asked. The consultation will determine the best-suited treatment for each patient. After the consultation, treatment will commence. An application of a topical anesthetic will be used to minimise discomforts in the treated area. Usually, the entire procedure will take twenty to forty minutes to finish. After the treatment, patients are scheduled for follow up appointment to assess the progress of the procedure and to see if untoward reactions occur.
EXPECTATIONS AFTER THE TREATMENT

You can resume your activities of daily living immediately after the procedure. In just a few days, you can achieve a youthful and rejuvenated appearance that you are longing for!
