Dermapen is an advanced treatment for skin rejuvenation and treatment of scars.
Dermapen creates micro-point punctures within the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, which are essential building blocks for healthier, younger-looking skin. The Dermapen works by "tricking" the skin into repairing itself, which means scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and other complexion woes begin to disappear thanks to a faster cellular turnover. Dermapen is relatively painless; however, a numbing cream is used to manage any discomfort associated with the procedure.
Dermapen treatments take up to 30 minutes to perform., depending on the area being treated. Dermapen treatments can be used on the face, hands, and décolletage. Results are typically visible within 6-8 weeks after the first procedure. Since there is no product injected into the skin, side effects are rare.

1. Dermapen works with the body’s healing processes.
As soon as the skin experiences a wound, the body produces collagen and elastin to help heal that wound. The Dermapen creates tiny micro-wounds to capitalize on the body’s natural healing processes.
2. This treatment is perfect for signs of aging.
Although the Dermapen was first introduced to the UK as an effective treatment for acne scarring, it is also great for signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, folds, and crow’s feet.
3. Dermapen can match results achieved by fractionated laser treatments.
The Dermapen used at Medicetics is also called a ‘Fractionated Needling System’ or ‘FNS’ as it can be just as good as a fractionated laser treatment at stimulating your skin to produce new collagen.
4. Dermapen can treat stretch marks.
If you have stretch marks from weight gain or pregnancy, the Dermapen can help you recapture smoother, flawless skin. The same repairing process initiated by a Dermapen treatment is used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
5. Scarring requires multiple treatments.
Many clients with wrinkles and fine lines see results after just one Dermapen treatment; however, we always recommend a course of 3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart to achieve the best results.
You may be a good candidate for skin peels if you have any of the following:
• Wrinkles and fine lines
• Crow’s feet
• Uneven skin tone and texture
• Acne scars
• Trauma scars
• Stretch marks
The Dermapen proceduretakes 15-30minutes to perform, depending on the area being treated. We always use a numbing cream, to ensure that you feel no discomfrt during the procedure.
Directly after the procedure, your skin may appear red and flushed; skin may also feel sensitive to the touch. These side effects tend to dissipate within 24-48hours hours after the procedure. Allergic reactions are virtually non-existent, as there are no substances or solutions being injected into the skin.
Optimal results are visible within 6 to 8 weeks after the first treatment.
