Dermapen

Dermapen™ has taken over from Dermaroller or Dermstamping and gives faster, safer and more accurate results for all skin types and skin conditions.

The Dermapen™ promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).

The most effective way to stimulate or “Induce” new skin is by micro-needling with the Dermapen™’s vertical stamping method. This new stimulation can be done quickly and easily while keeping the epidermis intact and down-time to a minimum. The dermapen is a electrical device which is effortlessly controlled by your specially trained and skilled practitioner at Skin Perfection London. Due to the multifunction of needle depths, your practitioner can select the most appropriate needle depth, personalised for your skin concerns as apposed to a roller which has one needle depth. The amount of needle channels you create is far less on a roller vs the pen and it is far less ablative having the pen as the channels are less wide having vertical stamping rather than having a rolling method on the skin, which can lead to further scarring if not carried out correctly.

Dermapen™ can successfully treat:

Fine lines and wrinkles
The Dermapen™ promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The most effective way to stimulate or “Induce” new skin is by micro-needling with the Dermapen’s™ vertical stamping method. This new stimulation can be done quickly and easily while keeping the epidermis intact and down-time to a minimum.

Acne Scarring
The Dermapen™ treatment can provide drastic results improving the appearances of the scars. The micro needles of the Dermapen™ create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The Dermapen™ keeps the epidermis integrity full intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain.

Surgical Scars
The challenge of a surgical scar lies within the matrix of all the forms or categories of the scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. The Dermapen’s™ unique vertical stamping and depth control up to 2.5mm makes treating scars superior to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (11 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.

Stretch Marks
Various treatments are available for the purpose of improving the appearance of existing stretch marks, including laser treatments, dermabrasion, and prescription retinoids. Some cream manufacturers claim the best results are achieved on recent stretch marks; however, few studies exist to support these claims. The use of the Dermapen™ uses the bodies’ natural solution for unsightly stretch marks. New collagen growth and stimulation is more effective for reducing and fading stretch marks. The Dermapen ™ does this through Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).

The Dermapen™ device allows for appropriate treatment needle depth to activate the cascade of fibroblast and growth hormone to generate more skin, collagen and elastin for smooth and healthy coloured skin. The skin of the epidermis effectively thickens and becomes noticeably smoother therefore evening stretch marks is the result.

Your Questions Answered


Does a Dermapen™ treatment hurt?
There are two types of Dermapen™ treatments. The first type calls for the use of an aesthetic cream to numb the area, to allow for a deeper, more aggressive Dermapen™ treatment. The second type involves using Dermapen™ at a shallower depth, eliminating the need to pre-treat the skin with an aesthetic cream. Depending on the patient’s skin and the type of treatment provided, the skin may appear red and irritated for a few days. Specially formulated creams can be used before and after a Dermapen™ treatment to minimise this effect.

How quickly are results visible?
Visibly rejuvenated skin can generally be seen after just 6-8 days following a procedure, with results further improving over time. A course of Dermapen™ sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however, improvement is usually noticeable after just one treatment.

Is Dermapen™ safe?
Injections are not a part of a Dermapen™ treatment, so allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is virtually no downtime and the healing process is quick. Aftercare is also very simple and can be fully administered at home.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling?
Side effects experienced with Dermapen™ will usually subside within 48 hours. They include erythema, stinging, itching and tightness of the skin.

My face has a few slightly raised red and itchy lesions today, is that normal and something the client may experience?
Yes absolutely normal. Some people just get red and dry skin, others get quite flaky dry and red skin, others tend to break out in lots of lumps like pimples but they go away in 3 days. So yes, it is normal and is just the body purging itself of toxins.

What can be expected after Dermapen™ treatment?
Day 1: Erythema and redness, severity of which will depend upon the aggressiveness of the performed treatment.
Day 2: Red or pink hue similar to moderate sunburn may persist. There may be some noticeable swelling on the second day.
Day 3: Skin may still retain a pink hue, or return to normal colour. Swelling subsides.

Can you have the treatment in conjunction with IPL hair and/or rejuvenation settings and what should be the time gap? E.g. if a client has just had hair removal this week with IPL can they have Dermapen™ needling next week or even the same week?
Not IPL rejuvenation. The client would get scar tissue from a double wound healing response. They could do pigment, but really why would they need to do this when the Dermapen™ provides the versatility? 4 week intervals if they absolutely had to.

What if they have had electrolysis? Is this still okay to use the Dermapen™?
Again this is fine to use but it is best to let their skin heal for a week or 2 or they will be more sensitive. It shouldn’t be a problem but the pain levels they experience during the treatment may be greater. This of course depends on the electrolysis practitioner because some tend to cause more damage than others to the skin and therefore require more healing time

How many treatments a year can someone have? I understand its every 4-6 weeks between treatments?
6-8 weeks, a course of 4-8 on average. As Dermapen™ results are essentially permanent; it is not like a micro where it must be ongoing.

Should Botox users wait 6 weeks before having a Botox treatment?
Clients who have had Botox treatments should ideally wait 2 weeks either side of having Dermapen™ treatment.

    I’ve been coming here for over a month now for blue LED light treatment and can’t recommend enough! The treatment itself has done wonders for my acne, the staff are lovely and the location is great. I also think the prices are very reasonable and have recommended Skin Perfection to my sister, who has started the same treatment.

    I have visited the saloon for 6 course of yellow LED light therapy. The ladies there are all very nice and gave me full information about the treatment before during and after the course of 6. It is quite difficult to take appointment within a short time so i suggest to book your slot asap as they get fully booked very easily. …

    Skin Perfection is one of the best clinics I have ever been to, they know what they talking about when it comes to your skin… When you first step in the clinic you are made to feel very welcome not rushed and they listen to what your concerns are about your skin, and what products will be best for your skin.

    I had my first session of laser hair removal today. I was anxious but Lauren B was very informative, professional and patient. I even noticed results from my patch test. The clinic is sparkling clean and clinically spotless. They are fully informed and professionally trained and I’m looking forward to the rest of my treatments. …

    … I’m delighted with the results of my recent LVL (“lash volume lift”) treatment. Lilly added volume and dimension to my stick straight, long blonde lashes. The curl and blue/black tint really made them pop! I feel so pretty and awake now without makeup, and with mascara, the extra drama is intense in the best way. So happy I found a way to enhance my lashe without those high-maintenance and damaging extensions.

    … I have had a course of skin treatments: photofacial rejuvenation combined with a peel and my skin feels so much better for it. It can be uncomfortable during treatment but definitely worth the results.
    Steph Haverly


  • 4.5 out of 5

    I’d highly recommend Skin Perfection. I’ve used them for my lazer hair removal and it has been extremely successful. They are incredibly professional, fast and organised, always texting or calling before appointments, always on time and the treatment itself has worked really well and I’m going to continue using them for more.
