What is Dermapen?

DermaPen is a skin micro-needling treatment with minimum downtime which
promotes scarless healing and natural collagen production in the skin to improve the
appearance of scars, acne scarring, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmentation and
rejuvenate the skin.


Dermapen micro-needling is highly efficient in reducing the appearance of scars, including those from acne, injuries, and surgical procedures. It works by breaking down old scar tissue and promoting skin cell regeneration, resulting in new tissue formation. New tissue development can lead to a smoother skin surface with less scar visibility. Results can vary depending on the age, depth and severity of scarring. Dermapen may not completely remove scars, just reduce their visibility.

Dermapen effectively addresses uneven skin pigmentation. While individual results may vary, many patients see a noticeable fading of dark spots and a more even skin tone over the course of treatments. Results are most effective when combined with a tailored post-treatment care plan, which may include lightening products. Patients need to have realistic expectations and understand that Dermapen can assist with improving pigmented lesions as part of a comprehensive approach to skin health.

While Dermapen micro-needling is designed to improve skin texture and reduce hyperpigmentation, there’s a low risk of it causing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), especially in individuals with darker skin tones. This occurs when the procedure triggers excessive melanin production in response to the micro-injuries sustained during treatment. However, you can minimise the risks with appropriate care before and after the procedure.

One question that often arises is whether skin needling can cause scarring. The micro-needling process works by creating controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. Dermapen’s adjustable needle depth allows for targeted treatment to even the most delicate areas. When performed by an experienced professional, such as the Elevate Medical Aesthetics team, the risk of damaging the skin or causing scarring is minimal.

Proceed with caution when seeking aesthetic treatments during pregnancy. Most healthcare providers recommend avoiding micro-needling procedures during pregnancy, although comprehensive research on its effects is lacking. Your skin may be more sensitive, and your body’s healing capabilities may differ during pregnancy, affecting the recovery process and outcome.

While you likely associate needles with pain, Dermapen micro-needling has been designed with patient comfort in mind. The Dermapen device uses fine needles that merely penetrate the skin’s most superficial layers, resulting in minimal discomfort. Before the procedure, we apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the treatment area and reduce any potential pain. Pain tolerance can vary by individual, but many describe the sensation as a light prickling or slight abrasiveness.

Dermapen tightens loose and lax skin. The device’s fine needles puncture the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production and a healing response. Over a series of treatments, increased collagen and elastin can result in a gradual skin-tightening effect. Patients often observe skin firming over time. However, results may vary based on your specific skin condition and the natural ageing process.

Dermapen isn’t just for skin rejuvenation. It shows promise in hair growth and restoration. Micro-needling can effectively stimulate dormant hair follicles by increasing blood flow and nutrient supply to your scalp. The body’s wound healing response may include releasing growth factors leading to new hair growth.

The average Dermapen session at Elevate Medical Aesthetics takes 90 minutes. Treatment times can vary depending on the treatment areas and concerns being addressed. Treatment time includes applying a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin before the actual micro-needling process.

Results will vary depending on the treatment area, your skin condition, age, and lifestyle. Initial improvements may be seen within the first week. However, cumulative results are more common over several weeks as collagen production increases. We usually recommend a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with maintenance sessions every 6-12 months as needed. Maintaining a healthy diet and protecting your skin from the sun is critical to maintaining results.

Recovery can vary by individual, but most patients can expect the initial redness and swelling to subside within 24-48 hours. Your skin may remain sensitive for up to a week after the procedure. You must follow post-care instructions carefully, including the use of gentle skincare products. For most, the skin returns to its normal appearance within a week, with noticeable skin texture and tone improvements.

We advise avoiding wearing makeup for at least 24-48 hours after a Dermapen facial treatment. Your skin’s surface may be more susceptible to infections during healing. Once your skin has begun to heal and any redness has subsided, you may begin using mineral-based makeup products. Follow our tailored aftercare instructions carefully, as the duration may vary based on the treatment depth and your skin sensitivity.

The number of Dermapen sessions you need varies according to your specific concerns and goals. Typically, we recommend 3-6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, for optimal results. The severity of the issues being addressed is a significant factor. Deep scarring or ageing effects may require additional sessions. Our Dermapen micro-needling treatments in Yorkshire start at £220 (subject to change). View our clinic’s treatment price list to learn more about bundling multiple sessions.
