A favourite of Kim Kardashian, this treatment has attracted worldwide attention for its skin rejuvenating and healing benefits.
When it comes to improving the appearance of your skin, minimally invasive treatments with next-to-no downtime are always the popular option. The DermaPen device creates micro-point channels in the skin, guided by Dr Carmen or our highly experienced cosmetic therapist. The body perceives this as damaged skin and stimulates the healing process, including collagen and elastin production.
Whether you want to eliminate wrinkles, reduce acne scars, pigmentation, or other skin imperfections, the DermaPen could be the treatment for you.
What skin conditions can DermaPen skin needling treat?
As a registered trademarked device, DermaPen has been clinically proven to improve a variety of skin complaints, including:
How does DermaPen skin needling work?
Your body naturally assumes wrinkles and scars are repaired skin. The DermaPen skin needling device creates micro-point channels in the skin to help reactivate the healing process and trigger collagen production. Over time, the micro-needling stimulation can achieve a more radiant, and smooth complexion.

DermaRoller vs. DermaPen?
DermaRoller technology uses a wheel of needles that is rolled onto the skin. This method causes the skin to tear more easily, creating unnecessary trauma.
In comparison to other roller appliances, DermaPen uses a sterilised micro-needle to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Using a vertical stamping technique, damaged skin cells are infused with rejuvenating elements without epidermal damage. For this reason, minimal downtime is expected.
How many DermaPen treatments do I need?
Prior to your treatment, Dr Carmen will perform a skin analysis, and provide you with a personalised treatment plan based on your unique circumstances and desired outcomes.
Under the supervision of Dr Carmen, the DermaPen can be adjusted to different depths and speed for a more intensive purifying and correcting effect. This is not available in a salon setting. To achieve optimum results, patients are recommended to have a minimum of three treatments, as well as maintenance on a monthly basis.
When will I see results?
Patients typically see a noticeable improvement in the skin after the initial treatment. However, significant results are usually visible after six to eight weeks. It is recommended that your skin is prepared and assessed according to your conditions in order to achieve the desired outcome.
