How Does Micro needling Work?

Microneedling is the most natural way to stimulate collagen production in your skin. Tiny needles penetrate the skin at an incredibly fast speed to create a controlled microtrauma and channels directly to the deeper layers of the skin. The channels allow for deeper penetration of serums and ingredients to further enhance the natural repair response.   

New, healthy skin cells can disperse pigmentation, lighten discolouration, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and scarring (including acne and post-surgical scarring) plus microneedling gives a more even tone and texture to the skin.

Microneedling for Pigmentation​

Unlike some Laser treatments, Dermapen4™ removes the risk of heat injury and hypopigmentation risks. This makes it a suitable procedure for any patient affected by melasma, hormonal pigmentation and with a predisposition to hyperpigmentation. Treatment is also suitable on all ethnicities including asian, hispanic and black skins.

Microneedling for Scarring​

Dermapen4™ is the only microneedling device with a dedicated scar setting and protocols for revision of deep, atrophic scars; including surgical, burn contracture, striae and post-acne scars. No dragging. No pulling of the skin. A popular Dermapen4™ Scar Treatment is for the treatment of Stretch Marks, both old and new and more effective for stretch marks than any laser treatments. Scarring Treatments may include: atrophic scars; including surgical, burn contracture, stretch marks/striae and post-acne scars.

Microneedling for Anti-Ageing ​

Your face, lip area, eye area, ears, neck, chest, hands and scalp are all treated with pinpoint precision to promote rapid lifting, firming and toning of facial features and contours. What’s more, the microchannels allow your skin to carry up to 80% more active ingredients, which dive deep into your skin to feed and be absorbed by the underlying cells. Combined with other therapies such as LED and Facial Peels, you can create even better results!!

Microneedling for Acne

Acne can affect all skin types and all ages, and may be caused by a combination of genetics, hormone changes, health, stress and or environmental factors.  Dermapen4™ Microneedling regenerates the affected area by stimulating the production and distribution of collagen whilst reducing bacteria. The result is an overall improvement of the appearance of problematic skin breakouts, blackheads/whiteheads (comedones), acne reduced and scarring minimised.

Frequently Asked Questions

Want to know more about Dermapen Microneedling?

What does microneedling actually do?

Microneedling (aka Colagen Induction Therapy) involves passing ultrafine needles through the skin to create microtrauma in the skins dermal layers. This stimulates the production of new collagen fibres, which results in lifting and rejuvenation of the treated area. It also improves the appearance of pigmentation, enlarged pores, wrinkles, scarring and stretch marks. The production of collagen can take anywhere from 30-90 days, meaning your results will continue to improve overtime.

You may be familiar with microneedling also being called dermal needling and skin needling.

Does microneedling hurt?

You might think that thousands of tiny needles stamped into your skin would be painful, but surprisingly it isn’t. Everyone who has experienced treatment with the Dermapen has remarked on how much more comfortable it is than they thought it would be! Most of our clients don’t feel that they need numbing, however we do have it available. 

How long does the skin take to heal after microneedling?

Minimal downtime is experienced after a Dermapen 4 treatment. You may experience facial redness and be sensitive for 12-48 hours post-treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities straight after treatment. There are a few things that you should avoid such as swimming, sweating and strong UV light directly after treatment.

Is microneedling safe?

Yes, it is completely safe. Before you begin treatments at Lovoir, we always have a thorough consultation with you. There are some medications and conditions which can prevent you from having Dermapen treatments so we always check this first!

Dermapen™ is the original and most trusted automated skin-needling device, and the latest Dermapen4™ uses the most advanced technology in microneedling, with less pain and more precision and safety than similar devices.

Why choose a Gold Authorised Treatment Provider?

Dermapen was the original automated microneedling device and brand, so advances in technology over the years together with millions of dollars and years of research means the latest version of this device, the Dermapen4, has a huge focus on patient safety, comfort, experience and of course results. Dr Christie says “achieving great skin doesn’t have to be a scary experience. Everyone wants their skin to look healthier, naturally smooth, clear and radiant without the downtime, discomfort and expense of traditional laser, injectable or surgical procedures”. Dermapen has recognised Gold Authorised Treatment Provider clinics as following all the Dermapen protocols, including high safety standards, highly trained practitioners and use of protocol DP Dermaceuticals products and the latest Dermapen4 device. By choosing one of these clinics, you’ll be ensuring superior microneedling results and exceptional safety – which is what we’re all after when it comes to treatments on our face.

Why do we prefer the Dermapen4?

Not all microneedling is created equal! While all skin needling boosts the collagen and elastin production in the skin, the outcome you’ll achieve will greatly differ depending on the device, solutions and technique used.  When it comes to an in-clinic microneedling device (which goes deeper into the skin than home rollers), this is where the unique benefits of the Dermapen4 really shine.

Dermapen is the original global microneedling brand, with years of experience, millions of dollars of research and only the most advanced technology and design – meaning greater precision, speed, safety and features with each new device. The Dermapen4 generates 48% more microchannels than its predecessor the Dermapen3, and 104% more than the average microneedling device. Smaller needles (and more of them!) oscillating at 110 revolutions per second (super fast=less sensation) working to create additional, tinier micro-injuries at an adjustable depth, and ultimately optimising skin rejuvenation results.

How long do microneedling results last?

The longevity of microneedling results depends on two factors; how long new collagen lasts in your skin, your age, the skincare that you use and the degree of your skin concerns.

Is microneedling as good as Botox?

Microneedling and botox work differently in the skin. Botox simply stops the targeted muscle movement. Similar to folding a piece of paper – repeated movements in the skin result in ‘expression’ lines over time. By ‘freezing’ the movement, the skin can fill back out over time. Paired with microneelding, this is a very effective way to treat lines produced by repeated expressions. Microneedling will improve the surface and deeper condition of the skin, with Botox injections to help improve results longer term.

Whats the difference between a dermapen and a dermaroller?

Microneedling is an advanced skin treatment performed in a salon or skin clinic by a trained professional that uses a device (at Lovoir we use the Dermapen4 Microneedling device) that creates tiny punctures in the skin with super-fine, sterilised needles. Microneedling is highhly effective any skin colour with deep acne scars, lines and pigmentation.

Derma rolling is an at-home version of a microneedling treatment done with a derma roller. This is a handheld device featuring a roller covered in very, fine needles. Home care devices should never have needles longer than 0.25mm for safe treatments. Derma rolling is a great way to support your in-clinic treatments and the effects of your skincare products but always consult with your skin therapist about which serums you are needling in. Not all serums should be rolled into the skin!
