How does it work?
The Dermapen is a hand held device about the size of a pen, it has a
piece that is inserted into the top of the device, and this piece contains needles. These tiny needles penetrate the skin at different levels- depending on the skin condition you are treating. This micro injury causes new collagen and elastin to form and it helps with the breakdown of old collagen. This leads to smoother, more refined skin and a reduction in wrinkles due to the skin tightening effects of the treatment.
Does it hurt?
Prior to your DermaPen treatment, we apply a layer of anaesthetic gel until your skin is numb; this makes the whole process pain free. You will feel the DermicaPen on your skin, so you will feel sensation, but not pain.
How long does the treatment take?
When you arrive we remove any traces of make-up or oil from your skin, then we will apply the anaesthetic, this usually takes 10-15 mins on average to numb the skin. We remove the gel and we apply a product as a glide medium to the skin, the needling of the skin usually takes no more than 30 minutes, but this depends on the area you are having treated.
How many treatments will I need?
Whilst you will see a positive change in your skin after just one treatment, we do however advise between 3-6 treatments, this is especially necessary if you are treating acne scarring or uneven skin tone or wrinkles.

What is the down time?
Immediately after your treatment your skin will appear red, and feel tight as the anaesthetic wears off, most people say it feels like mild sunburn on their skin. The skin often feels tighter. The redness usually dies down within a couple of hours. Jane Iredale mineral makeup may be applied 90 minutes following treatment if required.
