Dermaroller FAQ

How long does dermaroller treatment take?

It takes up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 - 30 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller Therapy procedure.

Does Genuine Dermaroller Therapy hurt?

No, the topical anaesthetic helps make the procedure a pleasant experience. Immediately after treatment you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.

How quickly will I see the results?

After a Genuine Dermaroller Therapy procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

How many treatments will I need?

Dr Bong may recommend that your Genuine Dermaroller Therapy consists of a series of 3 procedures 6 weeks apart. The treatment of scars and acne scarring may require up to 5 procedures.

How does Dermapen treat scars?

Skin needling is based on the skin's ability to heal itself after an injury. Right after the skin encounters any physical damage, it immediately eliminates the damaged tissue to replace it with new, healthy skin. Dermapen induces small, controlled areas of damage to trigger the production of new collagen without the risks of scarring resulting in smoother and firmer skin.

How long until I see results from Dermapen?

Each patient's healing time varies, though most start to see results in one day to a week after treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice a red appearance in the treatment area and in rare cases minor pinpoint bleeding depending on the depth of the needle penetration. Even a light treatment can enhance the appearance of skin texture and brighten your complexion.

What does a Dermapen treatment feel like?

Depending on the depth of treatment decided by your cosmetic doctor, Dr Kieren Bong, numbing creams can be used to increase your comfort. Those undergoing treatments with a shorter needle will only feel a tickling sensation, while those having the full 2.5mm are offered numbing creams.

How many Dermapen treatments will I need?

Each person's skin conditions are different and require different levels of treatment. Those with advanced skin conditions like acne scarring may need more than one session. The number of treatment sessions required will be determined during a consultation with Dr Bong.

What area of the body can I have Dermaroller done?

All skin areas of your body.

How often can I get Dermaroller?

Genuine Dermaroller Therapy can be performed repeatedly. Depending on your skin condition, and to achieve maximum possible results, we recommend an initial treatment cycle of 2 to 3 treatments. As the new collagen formation needs time to mature, we propose an interval of 6 weeks before the next treatment is commenced. As your skin continues to age an annual refresher treatment should be considered.
