The Dermapen 4 MD®
Skin Micro-needling / Collagen Induction therapy
The Dermapen 4 MD® is the very latest technology upgrade and we are pleased to offer this treatment at Pout Skin.
Dermapen 4 MD®, is an FDA approved medically engineered device that is proven to stimulate collagen formation, lift and rejuvenate your skin.
The increased production of collagen improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, softens acne scars, minimises large pores, lightens pigmentation and allows your skin to carry up to 80% more active ingredients into your skin.
What does the treatment involve?
A full consultation will determine the best course of treatment for you; this may include combinations of deeper and lighter treatments, and a range of different active products.Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and prepped. The needling itself is relatively quick and is carried out using a single use sterile needle cartridge. A post Hyla Active 3D treatment mask enriched with hyaluronic acid, peptides and zinc is placed on skin to heal and hydrate, followed by an antioxidant cocktail to treat your specific concerns.
How does it work?
Dermapen 4 MD® glides over the skin creating millions of fine fractional channels up to 104% faster than other micro-needling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deeper into the skin. In turn our body’s natural response trigger a natural process of repair. The result is an increased production of collagen and elastin, resurfacing, retexturizing and overall skin renewal. Treatment is quick and can be modified specifically for your skin type and needs, by controlling the style and depth of needling.
How many treatments are recommended?
A course of 4-6 treatments at 4-6 week intervals are recommended, depending on the skin condition that is treated. Follow-up refresher treatments twice per year might be required.
Home-care products are important for enhancing and maintaining the results along with regular advanced clinical facials.
Does it hurt?
Dermapen 4 MD® is the most comfortable micro-needling treatment available.
Who can have the Dermapen Treatment?
Dermapen 4 MD® treats a variety of skin concerns, it is suitable for all skin types and ethnics.
