Dermapen Skin Needling Treatments:
Is It Right for You?
What is Microneedling?
This solution uses a mechanical needling device with micro-sized needles to prick the skin. With the intention of creating tiny micro-injuries to the area, the intention is to boost the body’s natural healing process and support the production of new collagen and eliminate fine lines, some scars, and large pores. It is a treatment that has been around for decades, and still works wonders for the skin!
What is skin needling good for?
The most common and effective conditions addressed by microneedling include:
- Uneven tone, resurfacing
- Large pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scars caused by acne, surgery, or wounds
- Hyperpigmentation and sunspots
What can I expect during a skin needling treatment?
Before your skin needling treatment, the treatment area will be thoroughly and gently cleansed to remove any dirt or bacteria on the surface of your skin. The microneedles will then create tiny puncture wounds on the skin, encouraging the body’s natural healing process to take place. Your skin will then be soothed with a healing mask and gentle products to calm your skin, which will also take away any discomfort from the treatment.
With consideration to your treatment goals, we can tailor the treatment steps to meet your personal needs. These steps can be discussed during your consultation before your treatment!
Skin Needling Benefits
Dermapen microneedling can have outstanding benefits for clients of all skin types, treating a variety of common skin concerns including pigmentation, scarring, signs of ageing and more.
Better yet, the treatment is minimally invasive, meaning little to zero downtime while achieving your desired results. While treating your specific skin concern, Dermapen can also work to:
- Improve skin texture
- Minimise large pores
- Smooth skin tone
- Encourage increased product absorption
- Create an overall more youthful, glowing and healthy appearance
Skin Needling Aftercare
As a minimally invasive procedure, Dermapen clients usually require minimal to no downtime after their appointments, with some minor redness or irritation being the most common side effects.
Most clients experience no discomfort during their session, however, if you are concerned about sensitivity from the Dermapen application, please discuss this with your practitioner prior to your appointment. After application, the area is soothed with a healing mask and products that most clients find extremely tolerable and calming.
To care for your skin after microneedling, your clinician will provide you with some aftercare steps, tailored to your specific needs including your skin type and lifestyle factors. Generally, these steps will involve avoiding wearing makeup for two days, and avoiding strenuous exercise and excessive heat exposure for three to four days. You may be instructed to keep your skin clean with a gentle cleanser and toner, and protect your skin with sunscreen.
Please note that products containing active ingredients including salicylic acid or retinoids should be avoided up to 48 hours before your appointment and up to 24 hours after. Due to the micro-injuries sustained from the Dermapen application (as intended), active ingredients may irritate the skin and affect the body’s natural healing process. If you have any concerns about what products to use before or after your treatment, please discuss these with your practitioner during the appointment.
Skin Needling Side Effects
Although skin needling is a minimally invasive procedure with a low amount of downtime, all skin treatments carry potential side effects and risks. These risks can generally be minimised by adhering to preparation and aftercare instructions, and ensuring that the procedure is performed on suitable candidates.
Side effects may include redness, irritation, swelling and flaking. These are generally minor and should only last for a short period of time after the procedure. More serious side effects can include infection, changes in skin pigmentation, and scarring. These can generally be avoided by performing the procedure on suitable candidates and putting necessary aftercare steps in place.
To determine if you are a suitable candidate for treatment with microneedling, come in for a consultation so that one of our experienced clinicians can assess the condition of your skin and discuss your health history and lifestyle habits. Some medications may interfere with the suitability for treatment. Those with active skin infections, rashes or cold sores in the desired treatment area may be not be suitable for treatment. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may also be considered as unsuitable candidates.
Before and after your microneedling treatment, remember to follow your preparation and aftercare steps! These are put in place to help you to reduce the risk of side effects and to support the healing process of your skin, helping to achieve the best results possible.
