Skin Needling (Dermapen)

Invigorate your skin with collagen regeneration skin needling in Melbourne with Dermapen™ that boasts the same results as fractional lasers without the cost, downtime and long term side effects.

Skin needling has the ability to stimulate the body’s own natural healing and regenerative response for long term nourishment of the skin. This treatment stimulates collagen and elastin that are essential properties to help fight common skin concerns, including ageing.

Dermapen treatments are fast, effective, comfortable and offer results after just one treatment. Using an advanced pen like device that gently glides smoothly over the skin, microscopic wounds are formed by the sterile needles to stimulate collagen by activating a wound like repair process. Based on your areas of concern, your Clinican may recommend a series of treatments for optimal results.

Your treatment is performed by a Dermapen trained qualified Nurse Clinician.
