Microneedling has been used for many years all over the world, some other forms of this process and possibly the most commonly heard of is Derma-rollering.

Unlike Dermapen, Derma rollers don’t have the ability to work at different depths and usually cause more trauma to the  skin, resulting in more ‘down time’  The wounds created with a derma roller is much more traumatic to the skin, instead of the rapid verticle needle insertion and withdrawal, as seen with Dermapen, derma rollers tend to dig into the skin and create more of a tear like wound. Because of this any post rollering erythema and/or edema can last up to 7 days post treatment

Dermapen FAQ

How many treatments will I require?

At Venus you can book just one Dermapen treatment or you can book a course of up to 9 treatments.  The amount you will want/require depends on the skin concern being treated.  Basic skin rejuvenation is usually achieved after 2/3 treatments.  However, for scaring/strechmarks 6/10 treatments may be needed.

When will I see results?

Some people may see results after 10 days, but generally it can take up to 4 weeks to see the full effect.  Because of this skin needling is only carried out with at least 4 weeks between treatments.

Does it hurt?

Skin needling can be uncomfortable on some people and depends on the depth we are working at.  Some places on the face can be more uncomfortable than others, such as the cheekbones and nose.

How long does it take?

When you make your appointment, you will be asked to come to the salon for a consultation to check suitability for the treatment.  At the consultation we will talk you through the procedure and answer any questions you may have.  The treatment takes approximately 45mins including prepping the skin, face mask plus applying topical creams.
