Dermapen 4: The next step in Skin Needling

Utilising the best needle cartridge innovation to be seen yet, Dermapen 4 glides better, and performs better thanks to the vertical microneedling which means no long circular motions. Used in the treatment of fine lines, acne, scarring and skin tightening, we think you’ll love Dermapen 4 just as much as we do.

What is Dermapen 4?
A Dermapen is a small device that resembles a pen and is generally used for microneedling on people with skin issues with the treatment producing tightened, rejuvenated and glowing skin. Dermapen is used mostly for face wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and facial lines.

How does it work?
Having small punctures created in the skin will initiate the ‘wound healing response’ from the tissue there, meaning the damaged skin will tend to get eliminated and replaced with new skin. The collagen and elastin that is then produced will cause the skin to thicken and also tighten leaving the skin looking youthful.

When will I see results?
The process of skin remodeling can go on for months after each Dermapen treatment. Results can be seen within a week or even a few days.

Rejuvenation: 3 - 6 treatments
Acne Scarring: 4 - 6 treatments
Stretch Marks: 4 - 8 treatments
Pigmentation: 4 - 6 treatments
