What is Dermapen Microneedling?

Dermapen Microneedling involves a device with tiny needles that penetrate the skin vertically, creating microchannels. This process triggers a biological healing response, stimulating collagen for repair, renewal, and rejuvenation of the skin.

Rejuvenate your skin with our popular Dermapen Microneedling Treatment at our 9 London clinics. In a non-surgical procedure, collagen and elastin are stimulated, which results in plumping the skin and reducing scarring.

In London City Clinic, Dermapen microneedling treatments are available. We have been trusted by over 600,000+ clients since 2008 as London’s leading independent skin and laser clinic.

We perform hundreds of Dermapen facials and body treatments every day in the heart of the City of London, Cannon Street, for collagen induction therapy, stretch marks, scarring and pigmentation.

How Long Do Dermapen Results Last?

The longevity of results from Dermapen microneedling varies depending on several factors, including the individual’s skin condition, the number of treatments, and their post-treatment skincare routine. Generally, the benefits of microneedling can last between three to six months.

Initial Results and Improvement

Many people notice an improvement in skin texture and tone within a few days to weeks following the procedure. The production of collagen, which is stimulated by microneedling, continues to increase for up to six months, leading to progressively better results over time.

Maintenance Treatments

To maintain and enhance the results, practitioners often recommend a series of treatments. Typically, a course of three to six sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart, is suggested for optimal outcomes. After completing the initial series, maintenance treatments every six to twelve months can help sustain the improvements.

Factors Affecting Longevity

Several factors influence how long the results of micro-needling last:

Skin Type and Condition: Those with more significant skin issues, such as deep acne scars or pronounced wrinkles, may require more frequent treatments to maintain results.

Age: Younger skin tends to respond more quickly and maintain results longer than older skin, which may need additional treatments to achieve and sustain the desired effects.

Skincare Routine: Adopting a comprehensive skincare regimen, including high-quality serums and sun protection, can prolong the benefits of microneedling. Proper hydration and the use of products that support collagen production can enhance and maintain results.

Lifestyle Factors: Healthy lifestyle choices, such as a balanced diet, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking, can positively influence the duration of microneedling results. Conversely, factors like excessive sun exposure and poor skincare habits can diminish the longevity of the benefits.

In summary, Dermapen microneedling results can last from three to six months, with ongoing improvements up to six months post-treatment. Regular maintenance sessions and a good skincare routine can help sustain and prolong the benefits, providing smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

What does DermaPen treat?

Stretch marks can be treated with Dermapen on most parts of the body, including the stomach, legs, buttocks, and breasts. Depending on the size of the area of concern, the treatment may take up to 90 minutes. We recommend up to ten treatments, six weeks apart, for large areas, such as stretch marks caused by pregnancy, loss or gain of weight.

The treatment may take up to 90 minutes for large areas of the body. Depending on the concern, we recommend a minimum of 3-6 treatments every 4-6 weeks.

Acne Scars: Dermapen is ideal for acne scarring. It can achieve similar results to ablative treatments such as fractional laser, IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels without the negative side effects and downtime. We recommend 4-6 treatments 6 weeks apart for maximum results.

Am I Suitable?

Dermapen microneedling is a versatile skincare treatment suitable for various skin types and conditions. It is particularly effective for individuals with acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, microneedling improves skin texture, elasticity, and tone, making it beneficial for those seeking overall skin rejuvenation.

People with oily or combination skin can also benefit from microneedling as it helps balance oil production. Those with dry or sensitive skin should consult with one of our practitioners to ensure the treatment is adjusted appropriately to avoid irritation.

However, microneedling is not suitable for individuals with active skin infections or conditions such as acne, eczema, or psoriasis. Pregnant or nursing women should avoid the treatment. Additionally, those with a history of keloid scarring or blood clotting disorders and individuals who have recently used skin-thinning medications should consult their doctor before undergoing the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Dermapen micro-needling compare to the traditional Derma Roller?

Dermapen micro-needling is a motorised, more precise version of the traditional Derma Roller. It uses tiny needles to pierce the skin, triggering natural healing and increasing collagen and elastin. This results in plumped skin, reduced scarring, and pigmentation, leaving the skin smooth and healthy.

What are the features and benefits of Dermapen micro-needling?

Dermapen micro-needling is piston-driven and more effective than Derma Roller. It uses ultra-thin needles for minimal downtime and rapid healing. The treatment is painless due to a topical anaesthetic and is a safe procedure. It offers immediate results, with skin appearing plump, smooth, and radiant.

Is Dermapen micro-needling painful?

Dermapen micro-needling is not painful. A topical anaesthetic ensures comfort during the procedure, making it feel more like a rough massage.

Is Dermapen micro-needling safe?

Yes, Dermapen micro-needling is safe. It stimulates collagen production by penetrating only the epidermis and dermis. The skin heals rapidly, usually within 24 to 48 hours.
What is the healing process like after Dermapen treatment?
Post-Dermapen treatment, immediate results are visible with plump, smooth, and radiant skin. Depending on the skin concern, full results take 3-4 weeks.

What sets Dermapen apart from Derma Roller?

Dermapen offers adjustable needle penetration depth (0.2 – 2.5mm), allowing tailored treatments for different skin areas. It reaches more areas, provides more even treatment, and creates neater micro tears compared to the Derma Roller, which can leave larger, uneven trenches and potentially larger pores.
