How Does Dermapen Work

Dermapen, a type of microneedling device, operates based on the principles of collagen induction therapy (CIT). It's designed to improve the skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin's surface using fine, sterile needles.

When the Dermapen is gently glided over the skin, these tiny needles create thousands of microchannels, triggering the body's natural wound healing response. This procedure fosters the production of collagen and elastin, two vital proteins that maintain skin elasticity and firmness.

As the skin repairs itself, new collagen fibres form, resulting in smoother, more rejuvenated-looking skin. Additionally, the microchannels enhance the absorption and efficacy of topical skincare products, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin layers for better results.

It is important to consult a qualified professional to determine if Dermapen is suitable for your specific skin concerns. Proper technique and aftercare are also vital for optimal results.

Benefits Of Dermapen

Collagen Boost

Dermapen micro-needling triggers the skin's natural healing response by creating controlled micro-injuries. This process stimulates collagen production, a fundamental protein responsible for skin strength and elasticity.

Over time, increased collagen levels lead to firmer, more supple skin with diminished fine lines and wrinkles. The skin appears revitalised, offering a more youthful and vibrant complexion.

Enhanced Texture

Through its micro-needling mechanism, Dermapen promotes the turnover of old, damaged skin cells, resulting in smoother and healthier skin. It effectively reduces rough patch irregularities and refines the overall texture.

Additionally, Dermapen microneedling encourages shedding dead skin cells, unveiling a fresher surface and contributing to a more even and radiant complexion. Microneedling fosters a noticeable improvement in the skin's texture by minimising pore size and evening out skin tone.

Wrinkle Reduction

Micro-needling reaches deep within the skin layers, stimulating collagen and elastin production. These proteins are essential for skin resilience and elasticity.

It effectively addresses the visible signs of ageing by stimulating the synthesis of collagen and minimising wrinkles and fine lines.

The skin appears plumper and more youthful as it regains its natural bounce and suppleness. This rejuvenating effect leads to a smoother, more youthful complexion, gradually diminishing the visible signs of ageing.

Scar Minimization

The precision of Dermapen's micro-injuries is particularly effective in addressing scar tissue. By stimulating the skin's natural healing response, Dermapen microneedling fosters the production of new collagen and elastin. This process remodels scarred areas, gradually reducing their appearance.

Whether scars stem from acne, surgery, injuries, or stretch marks, Dermapen Microneedling's ability to initiate collagen production helps smoothen and blend the scar tissue with the surrounding skin.

Types of scars Dermapen micro-needling can effectively reduce are:

  •  Acne scars
  •  Surgical scars
  •  Trauma scars
  •  Stretch marks
  •  Chickenpox scars
  •  Burn scars
  •  Injury scars
  •  Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks

Over successive treatments, the texture and visibility of scars often diminish, leading to a more even skin surface.

Increased Elasticity

Microneedling impacts the collagen and elastin in the skin significantly, thereby enhancing skin elasticity. Collagen provides structural support, while elastin ensures the skin's ability to stretch and recoil.

As Dermapen microneedling promotes the synthesis of these proteins, the skin becomes more resilient against sagging and loss of firmness. Improved elasticity results in skin that is better equipped to retain its shape and resist the effects of gravity and ageing.

Hyperpigmentation Improvement

Dermapen's micro-injuries prompt the skin's natural exfoliation process, encouraging the shedding of hyperpigmented cells. This reduces uneven skin tones, such as sunspots or discolouration caused by ageing or environmental factors.

By promoting the growth of fresh, evenly pigmented skin cells, microneedling gradually diminishes the appearance of dark spots and patches. Over time, the skin's tone becomes more balanced and harmonious, lending a more radiant and uniform complexion.

Stretch Mark Reduction

Dermapen's ability to activate the skin's repair mechanism aids in improving the appearance of stretch marks. By boosting collagen and elastin production, it actively contributes to the rejuvenation of affected skin areas. This process gradually diminishes the visibility of stretch marks, making them less pronounced and blending them with the surrounding skin texture and tone.


Dermapen's adaptability and customisable features make it versatile for addressing diverse skin concerns across various body areas. Whether used for facial rejuvenation, scar treatment, or stretch mark reduction on different body parts, Dermapen's adjustable needle depth allows for accurate targeting of specific concerns. Its versatility enables tailored treatment plans that cater to individual needs and offer effective solutions for various skin issues.

Minimal Downtime

Post-treatment effects of Dermapen micro-needling typically involve temporary and mild reactions such as slight redness, swelling, or sensitivity in the treated area, resembling a mild sunburn, which usually subsides within a few days. The minimal downtime associated with Dermapen provides convenience for individuals managing busy schedules, as most can swiftly return to their regular activities post-treatment.


As a non-surgical procedure, Dermapen micro-needling offers a gentle yet effective approach to skin enhancement. Unlike more invasive surgical methods, Dermapen does not involve incisions or the removal of skin layers. This minimally invasive technique significantly reduces the risk of scarring and complications typically associated with surgical interventions.

Moreover, Dermapen's non-invasive nature results in shorter recovery times and minimal patient discomfort. While achieving noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and appearance, Dermapen micro-needling preserves the integrity of the skin's surface layers.

This gentle approach means that individuals can benefit from skin rejuvenation without the need for extensive recovery periods or prolonged downtime. The progress made is sustainable as the skin is rejuvenated from within; however, for best results, 3-6 sessions may be advised depending on the problem being tackled.

Aftercare tips

  •   Keep it Clean: Wash your face gently with a mild post-treatment cleanser to remove residual serum or debris. Avoid harsh products that could irritate the skin.
  •   Moisturize: Apply a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturiser to keep the skin hydrated. Opt for products your skin care professional recommends to avoid any potential irritation.
  •   Avoid Sun Exposure: Shield your skin from direct exposure for a few days post-treatment. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to protect the treated area.
  •   No Makeup: Avoid applying makeup or any skincare products for a minimum of 24 hours after treatment to enable the skin to heal undisturbed.
  •   Avoid Touching: Avoid touching or picking at the treated area to prevent infection or irritation. Let the skin heal naturally.
  •   Stay Hydrated: Stay well-hydrated by drinking abundant water to maintain skin moisture and support the healing process.
  •   Follow Professional Advice: Adhere to any specific post-care instructions your skincare professional provides. They might recommend specific products or practices to optimise healing and results.

Remember, everyone's skin reacts differently, so it's essential to heed the advice given by your skincare professional for the most effective post-treatment care customised to suit your skin's requirements.
