DermaPen - Advanced Skin Needling

DermaPen® is the world's most advanced fractional micro-needling device that provides patients with a more effective, minimally invasive skin treatment option that stimulates collagen and elastin as well as promotes greater product absorption to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It is also highly effective in softening the appearance of acne scars.

Essence Medical Cosmetic Clinic is proud to announce that they are the first clinic in Scotland to offer treatments using this device.

Advantages - Why DermaPen?

Precision: The precision of the DermaPen® minimizes the effect of the treatment on the tissues surrounding the treatment area much more so than the original system. Round areas, like those around the nose and upper lip, are harder to treat with the dermal roller, whereas the DermaPen®'s narrower hand piece can easily treat these areas.

Adjustable speed & length: DermaPen®'s sterile, disposable needle tips are adjustable to cater to different areas of the face that require different penetration levels for the best results.

No down time: Traditionally skin needling has been performed with a dermaroller. While effective in it's old form, the needles would penetrate the skin at an angle causing more side effects and therefore greater recovery time.

Less skin damage: The DermaPen® penetrates the skin from up to 100 times per second with an adjustable speed, and at a depth between 0.25mm- 2.5mm, depending on the area being treated. The needles in the DermaPen® penetrate the skin vertically, minimising skin damage, pain and recovery time.

Safe for all skin types

Fast, visible results for acne scarring and fine lines

An effective alternative to laser resurfacing

The most common technique uses a roller with needles spread across the cylindrical device. This type of device is rolled across the treatment area. The nature of the rolling movement creates unnecessary epidermal damage as the needles pull the tissue as they leave the skin and creates trenches. DermaPen®'s unique pin-head is completely vertical, minimizing unnecessary injury to the treatment area. The carefully controlled, disposable pin-head only moves in and up-and-down motion, meaning less recovery time and a more comfortable experience for patients.

The size and design of DermaPen® also allows it to be used in tight or round areas where a dermal roller could not fit like the crease of the nose, along the upper lip, and across the chin. DermaPen® works well on any skin tone and type meaning it can be a safe alternative to lasers for those with darker skin tones.

Dermaroller FAQ

How does Dermapen work?

Using multiple needles to vertically penetrate the surface layers of skin, treatment with Dermapen allows the body to begin the wound-healing process, which breaks up older collagen chains to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin.

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 mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement after just one treatment while more 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.

How does Dermapen treat wrinkles, stretch marks, and 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.

I can honestly say that Dr Bong is a great person and so knowledgeable. He is warm and friendly. I have been to many doctors and nurses in the past but no one compares to the warmth and expertise of Dr Bong
