What Is Dermapen®?

Dermapen® is the most natural and holistic treatment to enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for invasive surgery. The fractional micro-needling treatment has an aerating effect on targeted areas of skin, helping to stimulate collagen production and prompt the skin to rejuvenate itself. This treatment is safely performed by our medical aesthetician, and usually requires a series of four treatments one month apart. Immediately following the procedure TNS Recovery Complex (Growth Factor) will be applied every four hours until bedtime.

By aerating the skin with the micro-needles the stimulating growth factor can penetrate deeper into the skin to support new collagen growth. There is significant data to support improvement of acne scarring, stretch marks and overall improvement of skin texture.
