DERMAPEN TREATMENT IN HALE,
Our skin is a wonderful thing. It is the largest and one of the most important organs of our body. Let’s think for a moment about what our skin does for us. It takes on cuts and grazes, fights off dirt and disease, keeps out the rain, protect us in cold weather with hairs on end; we could go on. In fact, the skin is under almost constant attack from pollutants, the sun, the ageing process, our genetic makeup – and then there are the stubborn scars we leave on it from acne and operations. Fortunately, Dermapen at KP Aesthetics is a really effective treatment for all of these imperfections which can often kick at our confidence. Dermapen, or skin needling, can leave our skin looking and feeling fabulous.
With any aesthetic treatment there are quite rightly lots of queries and concerns and Dermapen is no different. Whilst I will always aim to put you at ease with a detailed talk through of the Dermapen treatment in our initial consultation, I want to share a few of the frequently asked questions, and their answers.
80% of people will experience acne at some point in life, but when it leaves scars, many people feel low self-esteem. Skin needling using the Derma FNS pen is one of the most effective treatments available for reducing the appearance of scars, and it can also help to rejuvenate and remodel the skin.
The concept of skin needling using the Dermapen is based on the skin’s natural ability to heal itself when it is damaged. The Dermapen made up of a series of small needles which make tiny holes in the skin’s surface, causing the skin to release growth factors which encourage breakdown of old collagen and production of new collagen. This process lifts, tightens and rejuvenates the skin, and reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars.
BENEFITS OF TREATMENT WITH THE DERMAPEN
The Dermapen offers a more comfortable experience for patients and improved safety compared to the traditional Dermaroller skin needling system. It brightens and tightens skin on the décolletage and across the face, and reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars by encouraging collagen production.
Minimal discomfort with anaesthetic.
Anaesthetic cream provided.
sunburn-like redness, tight skin, warmer skin than usual.
£160 but for optimum results a course is required.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Each treatment will take about an hour. You will begin to see the results a few days after treatment, and follow up sessions may be required to achieve your desired results.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
Most patients will experience swelling and redness around the treatment area, which should subside within 24-48 hours of the treatment. You should be able to resume normal activity straight away and return to work the next day after treatment.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF DERMAPEN LAST?
Most patients will see the results from the Dermapen treatment just a few days after the initial treatment and they are long-lasting results, especially when Dermapen is used as a treatment for scarring. Depending on the individual patient, more than one session of the Dermapen treatment may be required to achieve the desired results. Similarly, the lasting effects will vary from patient to patient.
DOES DERMAPEN HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
For the first 24-48 hours after the Dermapen treatment has been done, you can expect the skin of the treatment area to feel tighter, look a little red feel a bit warmer – like sunburn. These effects will soon subside leaving smooth, firm, and beautiful new skin beneath. You will be able to resume your day-to-day activities immediately and return to work the next day.
IS DERMAPEN SAFE
Delivered by a medical professional with the required training and experience, Dermapen treatment is entirely safe. The needles reach the dermal layer of the skin only using the Derma FNS Pen, the level which allows the best results. Since no substance is injected into the skin there is also no possibility of rejection or adverse response during or after Dermapen treatment.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Dermapen treatments can deliver long-lasting results, especially when used for scarring. The effect will not be permanent however, and the frequency of maintenance treatments will depend on your individual circumstances.
DOES DERMAPEN TREATMENT HURT?
The term ‘skin needling’ may not sound particularly pleasant but you needn’t worry. Before beginning the Dermapen process, I will always apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area so that only minimal discomfort is experienced by the patient. In addition, remember that these are micro-needles which can really easily target specific and delicate areas, unlike the traditional Dermaroller, and therefore Dermapen minimises the breadth of discomfort.
CAN DERMAPEN REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF SURGICAL SCARS?
I am very pleased to tell you yes, Dermapen is able to treat and effectively reduce the appearance of surgical scarring. The Derma FNS Pen with which the Dermapen treatment is delivered can have the length of the micro needles adjusted so that they can gently penetrate the raised and thicker scar tissue. In doing so, Dermapen treatment enables the body’s natural healing mechanisms to break down the old skin cells of scar tissue and encourage the production of collagen and thus, new cells.
IS DERMAPEN AN EFFECTIVE ANTI-AGEING TREATMENT?
Yes. Many of my patients at KP Aesthetics have tried and loved Dermapen as a way of rejuvenating the skin and restoring youthful features. Where the ageing process causes dark circles around the eyes, a loss of luminosity and elasticity, and the appearance of lines and wrinkles, Dermapen is able to encourage the production of collagen and therefore stimulates the growth of new cells.
WHO CAN HAVE DERMAPEN TREATMENT?
Dermapen is equally effective on all skin types, colour, gender and ages. That means a person of any ethnicity, any age, man or woman can benefit from the incredible effects of Dermapen.
