Is the treatment painful?
We apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the skin & make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Truth be told, ‘boney’ areas on the face and the upper lip can be slightly uncomfortable, but the needling part of the treatment is very quick and the results are well worth it!
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Rejuvenation: 3-6 treatments 4-8 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 4-6 treatments 6-8 weeks apart
Pigmentation: 4-6 treatments 2-4 weeks apart
How soon after filler/muscle relaxant injections can I have a treatment?
While there is no clinical evidence that Dermapen 4 treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is essential to let us know if you have had an injectable treatment or are planning one shortly. With this information, we can let you know when to schedule your treatment appropriately.
How long should it take before I see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 3 to 6 treatments (spaced 2-8 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with our recommended post-treatment care.
Is there any downtime?
You may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people can return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Our skin therapists will provide you with post-treatment information and products.
All treatments require a consultation and consent form to be filled out before treatment to make sure you are suitable for the treatment.
Finally, how much time should be scheduled for an appointment?
Treatment time is approximately 1 hour.
