Dermapen™ is a form of micro-needling designed to create a safe healing response in the skin. This healing response stimulates natural collagen and elastin production within the skin, without side effects or downtime. Along with this, it also repairs the surface layers resulting in a healthier, brighter and tighter looking skin.

The face, lip, eye, chest, scalp and hand area can all be treated to help lift, tone and regenerate. Also, micro channels allow 80% more penetration with topical ingredients used during treatment.

We use the Dermapen™ to soften wrinkles, promote skin rejuvenation, and treat acne scarring. It helps to break up pigmentation whether it be from sun damage or melasma. Treatments are considered relatively painless and for this reason we do not need to use a topical anaesthetic unless requested by the patient. Treatment is quick and easy, usually taking between 20-60 minutes, depending on the area to be treated.

A general guide to the amount of treatments required is:

General skin rejuvenation and anti-aging: 3-6 treatments, 6 weeks apart
Pigmentation and Melasma: 6+ treatments, 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6+ treatments, 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: approx 10 treatments, 4 weeks apart


We offer discount off the first Dermapen™ treatment.
First full face treatment: $160
Per treatment full face: $299 (if you purchase a course the price is reduced)

Prices per area are also available, just ask us about concessions and skin care plans.
