The Genuine DermarollerTM is a sterile single-use micro-medical skin-needling device that we gently roll over your skin to create thousands of tiny micro-channels or pinpricks. Although these micro-channels close by themselves, they stimulate your body’s healing response and the growth of new collagen and elastin. This is a popular treatment because it stimulates the skin [...]
Skin micro-needling devices work by creating tiny micro-injuries in your skin using a series of micro-needles. As the needles enter your skin, they create miniscule channels for cosmeceutical products and water to be drawn deeper into the dermis. This boosts your skin’s hydration. At the same time, your body will respond to these micro-injuries by [...]
The Dermapen is a handheld fractional micro-needling device. It looks like a pen, but has a single-use tip containing 12 micro-needles that can be adjusted to different speeds and depths depending on where on your face we’re using the Dermapen.

Every person is different. After your initial treatment sessions are complete, you may want [...]
The side effects of a Dermapen treatment are mild and self-correcting. The most common side effects are redness, stinging, itching and skin tightness for 24 to 48 hours post-treatment, after which the symptoms should subside without intervention.
Most people don’t need time off after this treatment, although if your skin is red afterwards, you may want to time your treatment for a day when you can go make-up free or spend some downtime relaxing until any redness subsides.
After any treatment, we’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions that relate to your procedure, so you know what to do and what to expect. Generally speaking, after a Dermapen treatment, we will recommend that you: Avoid sun exposure for three to five days Don’t wear make-up or sunscreen for 24 hours after your appointment
