What is Dermapen?
Skin needling through dry tattooing is a procedure proven to smooth wrinkles, reduce acne scarring and even reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Precise dry tattooing of specific lines, scars or stretch marks spurs collagen formation that fills wrinkles or other skin indentations and renews the skin's surface.

How Does Skin Needling Work?
Skin needling stimulates creation of new collagen production in your skin as it heals from the tiny abrasions. As your skin repairs itself, new collagen builds up in the Papillary Dermis (middle layer) just below the surface. The wrinkles, lines, or depressed scars plump from the bottom-up without
the use of anything artificial. Multiple skin needling sessions to treat the same lines will gradually and continually build new collagen to fill-in the treated areas.
Is there recovery time after skin needling treatment?
You should expect minimal swelling and visible red lines that look a little like a cat scratch on the skin for 2-3 weeks diminishing over that time. Fine lines and wrinkles will look like cat scratches. Scars will be more red as like an abrasion. Light scabbing will form. During the first 3 to 7 days, antiseptic ointments should be applied to the treated skin to aid healing Use tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 48 hours and dry gently before applying your skin care products. Always make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area. It is recommended that make up is not applied for 12 hours after the procedure.. During this treatment this is the best time for the skin to rest and regenerate. Investing in an organic skin range is also advisable as you don't want your skin to absorb parabens, colourants, preservative, etc
How long will the effects of skin needling last?
While everyone's skin is different, skin needling's effects can last as long at
How long before I will see results?
You'll see a difference in as little as a week - as soon as the scratch marks are no longer visible. Depending on the depth of a scar, stretch mark or wrinkle, you may want to get multiple treatments. Subsequent procedures should be performed at least 6 to 8 weeks after the prior treatment to allow
for complete healing and collagen production which may take up to 6 months for full effect.

Applications of the Needling Technique:
Wrinkles: Fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be diminished with facial needling.
Scars: Skin needling can decrease the depth of pitted, depressed, or shallow scars caused by acne, chicken pox, surgeries, or trauma.Raised or hypertrophic (overgrown) scars can become smoother with needling treatments that flatten the elevated scar tissue. Examples include borders of skin grafts and other hypertrophic surgical scars. Stretch Marks: Skin needling of stretchmarks has been shown to reduce their visibility significantly over time. Skin needling can also be combined with other treatments including Botox, IPL, and traditional surgical procedures.
