Pen skin needling heals and minimises the appearance of wrinkles, facial ageing, stretch marks, pigmentation and scar tissue. Like all skin needling methods, a course of treatment is advised to preserve long-term results. At Dr Saras &Co, we use a state-of-the-art method of facial needling available at our clinics located in Annandale, Double Bay and Miranda.
What is Dermapen Skin Needling?
The Dermapen utilises electronically filled automation with an ergonomic vacillating wand. The vibration reaction raises procedural comfort while forming small revitalising pathways as it moves over the epidermis. The flexible treatment depths support targeted accuracy that heal various skin problems and all in one session.
How Does Dermapen Work?
Dermapen treatments form minute fractional pathways into the surface of the skin. This action triggers a natural healing process encouraging the skin to heal. The production of collagen is encouraged. The skin’s natural process is then increasingly normalised and strengthened promoting regeneration.
While you are having the Dermapen treatment, you may feel a mild sting when the pen moves over the epidermis. Different to other types of skin needling, the Dermapen only takes about 15 minutes to complete. The pen can treat all facial areas and contours even the upper lip and under the eyes which is normally hard to treat in other skin needling treatments. After treatment, your skin will look and feel like you have a mild sunburn; the redness normally lasts for a couple of days.

What Can Dermapen Treat?
Dermapen skin needling is the number one procedure to prompt new collagen. Sagging contours, wrinkles, fine lines and tired skin are noticeably revitalised and tissue damage is restored with new collagen to minimise the look of uneven skin tone. Skin needling is also efficient solution for age spots and pigmentation.

Is Dermapen Treatment Painful?
Different to other skin needling treatment, the vacillated motor depletes nerve receptors ensuring a comfortable and painless treatment. For more in-depth needling methods, an anaesthetic cream is applied half an hour before treatment begins. This minimises any discomfort or sensitivity for the patient; mild vibrating is the only sensation felt with very light pressure. The treatment is well tolerated by most patients.
What Can I Expect from Skin Needling?
Most patients respond well to skin needling treatment, with natural and rejuvenating results. Any discolouration can be reduced, as well as lines and wrinkles diminished. Any tired looking skin can be refreshed and other signs of aging can be reversed. This is achieved by the Dermapen’s triggering of natural collagen production that can lower as we get older.
In addition, since there is minimal downtime associated with skin needling, most patients are able to leave the clinic straightaway after treatment. You can return to your daily routine and go back to work immediately. There is no scarring associated with Dermapen, as it only penetrates the epidermis, which can heal quickly. There is only a slight redness after treatment, which will reduce within 24 hours of treatment and reveal an improved complexion.
