Dermapen is a unique microneedling device that has quickly become the innovative Leader in Anti Aging treatments.
HOW IS THE TREATMENT ADMINISTERED?
Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile DermaPen needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic or local block should be applied to the client’s skin to ensure their comfort and a painless experience. After the skin is numbed, the practitioner gently moves the DermaPen over the client’s skin to puncture the epidermis layers of the skin and create miniscule sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year, yet they close within less than an hour.
WHAT IS THE SKINS APPEARANCE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
After the procedure the client’s skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. The client will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.
HOW QUICKLY ARE RESULTS VISIBLE?
Visible results of skin rejuvenation are generally seen after just 6-8 weeks following procedure
IS THE DERMAPEN SAFE?
Skin needling does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (circa 24hrs), rapid healing and requires simple after-care.
Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing procedure that improves the skin’s appearance by removing the top layers through a method of controlled scraping of the skin. This treatment helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines, uneven texture, and provides a healthier more radiant complexion. Dermaplaning is typically done immediately before a chemical peel and allows the peel to work more effectively. By removing the outer layer of dead skin, the peel may be applied more evenly for a more dramatic result.
Dermaplaning can be used on small areas of the skin or on the entire face and also removes vellous hair “peach fuzz ” which traps excess dirt and oil without growing back thicker. It improves scarring and smooths out small facial wrinkles leaving the skin refreshed, polished and glowing without visible irritation. Dermaplaning increases product penetration and can be done monthly!
BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING INCLUDE:
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
Reduction in the appearance of deep acne scars
Smoother, more even complexion
Removal of fine facial hair, referred to as “peach fuzz”
Enhanced penetration of skin care products
HOW IS DERMAPLANING PERFORMED?
Dermaplaning is safely performed by using a sterile surgical blade. Don’t let the word blade overwhelm you, this is a very safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment and can be compared to shaving. Your certified aesthetician holds your skin taut while stroking the blade against the skin at a 45 degree angle. This particular medical spa treatment is relatively quick and painless.
WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER?
This is a common misconception and is completely false. It is physiologically impossible for hair to grow back thicker. We have two different types of hair on our bodies Vellous hair and Terminal hair. Vellous hair is most often located on our face and appears to be almost translucent or blonde. Where Terminal hair is much thicker and grows mainly on our under arms, pubic area, and eye brows. It can also be found on men’s legs and lower facial area.
When Vellous hair is removed it grows back the same texture and color it was before the Dermaplane treatment. This is why we recommend Dermaplaning every 4 to 6 weeks to keep up with your natural hair growth cycle. Terminal hair will grow back the same as it was before…. coarse. If you have unwanted terminal hair that you never want to come back we do offer Laser Hair Removal treatments that can do just that.

Micro-Needling is the latest and greatest in optimal skincare tone and rejuvenation therapy. Intra-dermabrasion is a new type of mechanism to activate collagen & elastin synthesis
WHAT IS THE PRINCIPAL BEHIND MICRO NEEDLING?
The idea behind CIT is similar to that of many other non-surgical skin-tightening procedures in that it aims to create a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface, thereby inducing the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin- and collagen fibres (neo-collagenesis) as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis) in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes. In addition to CIT, the channels made from the micro-needles allow topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF MICRO NEEDLING ON THE SKIN?
It improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This in return improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation. Disfiguring scars, especially acne scars, can many times be improved. New collagen fibres can elevate the depressed scar tissue.
An improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis) into the previous fibrotic scar tissue harmonise and blends the pigmentation with the periphery skin.

Skin Tag Removal
They are benign, tiny out pouching skin which is normally attached to the skin underlying it by a stalk which is thin. Skin Tags often look like tiny pieces of skin that is hanging and normally occur in those sites where clothes rub up against any skin as well as areas where there is friction from skin-to-skin, for example as underarms, groin, upper chest as well as neck. Cutaneous skin tags are usually small and harmless skin growths.
